This part fixes the following symptoms:
Repair was easy. Removed two side panels on the control plate. Removed two phillips screws that hold the control panel to the body of the washer. Disconnected the electic connection to the wires leading to the lid switch. Three sided of the lower cover lift over and removed from the washer frame. Access to the lid switch and wire retainers was easy. Removed two screws holding the remaining parts of the switch and replaced with new. Re-routed the wires through the retainers. Set the sides back on making sure the set all the way back in the frame and fit properly into the plastic strips on the back of the washer. Reconnected wires, screws and end caps.

Using kit 285587 was straight forward. Removed fabric softener dispenser & sealing cap. It took more time to find the socket set (needed a 7/16 socket) with a long driver (10 inch) than to unscrew & remove the auger & agitator.Cleaned up the bowl whilst it was apart (good buildup of junk under the agitator). Replaced agitator, new thrust washer to find that grease should be applied but isn't included in kit (get part not 350849). Grrr.... Applied new auger, cam, dogs and holder. (No instructions in kit for assembling cam, dogs & holder, but you can work it out ok). Applied new bolt & washer, new seal on cap. Installed fabric softener. Could have been a 15 minute job but peace and quiet in the garage makes it worthy of taking longer ;-)
the timer knob shaft must be held in place from spinning while the knob hub is removed, simply grasp the shaft with needle nose pliers below whats left of the hub and with another pair of pliers grasp what is left of the knob hub and rotate counter clockwise, once it is broken free it should spin right off. Reverse this process to install the new timer knob. Installing the lid bumper is simple just pull out the old bumper with needle nose pliers and start the new bumper in from the bottom of the lid and work bumper until the bumper clears the hole in the lid, you may need a small flat screwdriver to work it in gently as not damage the finnish or the bumper when you clear the thicker part of the bumper flange it will lock right into the lid.
I stripped the machine down and replaced the tub seal and drain hose.
