First, watch the video. Its dead on. Started to watch it a second time after the part arrived, but decided not to. Should have!!! Disassembly went just like the video...very smooth. Forgot a few steps on the re-assembly and had to do it over twice. If I'd re-watched the video I'd have been done in 20 minutes. Machine works great now. Thanks for your help and instructions. Saved me $450.00

I watched the videos on the PartSelect website:- extremely helpful! My machine configuration was a little different from that in the video but this was not a problem. Both parts were very simple to remove and install. The only problem was refitting the unit consisting of the washer front, two sides and top. The video warns of the need to ensure that the two sides properly engage in the lugs on the base. Once I realized that I could look through the top (hold the lid open) to help with the repositioning, the task was simple. If I had noticed this earlier, the repairs would have taken less than 30 minutes.

Timer would not advance after wash cycle.

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.

Had to remove the control panel and the back of the machine to get to the leads for the switch. Then installed the switch, but had to move the ground wite to the back of the machine because I could not get to the ground screw in the top of the machine. I just added it to an existing ground wire screwed to the back. Everything worked fine.

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.

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!!!
