The Part Select on-line video is excellent! All I did differently was lay the washer casing face down on an old bedspread so I didn't have to get down on my knees when replacing the lid switch.

We watched the repair video on the site twice and then were easily able to change out the lid switch assembly using a screwdriver and socket wrench. Prior to finding your site, we were searching new washers at a minimum of $700, so this saved us A LOT and was not time-consuming at all.

Well my husband went at it without watching the video. I watched the video and went in to help just in time to save him a lot of work. It was very easy and the video was so helpful. It saved us a lot if money on a machine I'm not ready to replace.

I watched the video. EXCELLENT description of how to replace Washer Lid Switch. I wrote down the directions, and followed them. Did almost the whole repair by myself. My husband helped remove the ground wire screw (RUSTED) and replaced it. He also helped me put the cabinet back on. (That was the hardest part) Just ran my first load, and it worked! I'm happy!!!

Lid switch assembly stopped working

I unscrewed the two screws in the back of the machine on each side of the top. After gently lifting it up and taking a peek inside I saw two clamps holing the back to the washer, I used a flat head screw driver to work them loose and put them to the side. After removing the top, it exposed the switch connection where you plug in the end of the switch. pushing the body forward exposed the rest of the switch. using a philip head screw driver I unscrewed the two screws under the lip to release the switch from the washer body and used a small socket to unscrew the screw for the ground. Two clips hold the assembly underneath the inside of the top of the body they slide on so you can pry them off and then pinch the ends so they will hold again. after installing the assembly lower the body back down,reinstall clamps that hold back to washer body making sure the back slides under the control board top, reinstall screws and you're ready to wash again.

Timer would not advance after wash cycle.
