Unplug washer. Use scraper to depress spring steel catches under top cover of cabinet. Raise and support cover. Remove lock mechanism from cover using nut driver and remove switch and cable from spring tension clips. The last cable stay is zip tie/plug; pry it from hole in cover. Don't worry about saving this cable stay as the new switch has one pre installed. Before lowering cover place an object such as a rolled up towel over the cabinet spring catches to prevent engagement. Then lower cover. Locate two screw on back of control panel and remove with nut driver. Just below control panel on back side of cabinet is a single screw securing a small cover plate. Remove screw and plate. Lift control panel and turn it over. Locate plug for the latch switch and disconnect it. Then set control panel back in place. Raise and support top of washer again and pull faulty switch and cable assembly from washer. Attach new switch assembly to top cover and place cable into spring clip and insert plastic cable stay into hole. Route the connector through the opening the faulty one was pulled from. You may now close the top of the washer. Lift and turn over control panel connect new switch plug and set control panel back in place. Replace screws on back of panel and the small cover and screw. Plug washer power cord in and you should be done.

Our washer wasn't really working, we called a tech to diagnose our problem, he charged us $35 to let us know that we had a suspension problem, he promised to call us back next day with the estimate for the repair, he never did. So I decide to search, I found a video showing exactly how to do it, it was a very easy, and simple process that I decide to order the parts my self. The parts were delivered to my door in 24hrs. I installed the parts in less than 45 min, and now our washer is working like new again!!!

Thanks guys.

Had to dig a little to find what error code "F1" really meant. Thanks to the Internet. Paperwork with machine advises to call a technician. Once I discovered what the error code indicated, I followed the instructions and removed and replaced the controller. Although it was expensive I didn't have to pay for any labor. Machine now functions normally.

Removed the softener dispenser and cap that's under it. Used 7/17" socket with an 18" long extension to reach the bolt that holds agitator down. Pulled auger off, pulled lower agitator off. Removed the 6 philips head screws that hold basket hub in place. Removed hub and installed new one, replaced screws. Lightly greased spline and reinstalled lower agitator. The auger has the cam section in it. A trick to get the rollers in place is to secure them to the cam with rubber band. Have string tied to the band. Insert the cam and when almose all the way in, pull rubber band off and the rollers stay in place. Reinstalled the bolt, cap and softener dispenser.

need to get washer turned on side where you can work underneath the machine. This job is alot easy if you get where you can see good and have plenty of room to work. You have to unhoook the wire from the old pump and then take the two mounting screws off from there you unhook each hose by squeezing clamp together and sliding backwards away from pump. A pair of needle nose pliers can make this process easier if the clamps are turned in an hard to get to position. You mount the new pump the same way as taking off the damaged pump. Take a screwdriver to help you slide the clamps up onto the new pump makeing sure the sleeves are completely over the new pump fittings and the clamps are slid up evenly, so you want have any leaks. Then replaces wiring harness and mounting screws.

Pulled washer from back of wall and disconnected power source. I removed three screws in back that houses the ol motor control board. Also, I had to pull the front control knob off so that I could lift the cover to expose control board. I took several pictures of the motor control board before unplugging the wires just in case I forgot where the wires needed to go. Very simple process and had machine working within 15 minutes.

My lid lock assembly was bad and therefore the washer lid would not lock to allow for washing.
