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!!!

With my daughters help, we moved the washing machine out of the utility closet We placed our Ipad on the dryer and watched the video provided on the PartSelect website. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The images are great and it was easy to pause and rewind any section we needed to review. I can't wait to tackle my next repair.

It was easy! I unplugged washer, unscrewed screws holding knob panel to washer and rotated it back. Removed brakets with a screw driver that hold washer cabnet down. Pushed cabnet forward. Unplugged electric connection to lid switch. Removed lid switch wires from brakets under washer cabnet. Unscrewd neutral connections. Unscrewed old lid switch from washer cabnet. And then put it all back together with new switch. It took maybe 20 minutes. So Easy even a girl could do it.

I removed the screws behind the top unit of the washer and flipped back the top to expose the wiring. I disconnected the wiring from the old lid switch. I tilted back the outer shell of the washer and moved it back off of the wash basin part. I removed the wiring from the harness along the underside of the shell and unscrewed the screws holding the broken switch in place. I installed the new switch in its place and ran the wiring through the harness. I put the shell back on the base and reattached the power clip. I closed the top unit and reattached the screws in the back and the washer was back and working.
