I removed the rear panel of the washer, and removed the lid switch assembly. Then, replaced the old one with the new lid switch and plunger. Put the rear panel back on the washer, and started washing clothes again!!!!!! I think a monkey could have done it....
it took a little longer to fix the lid switch becasue the you have to figure out how to install the switch after you takethe old one out. The old one popped out but the new one needs some twisting and pressure. It also is an ackward position to work in on the back of the washer front the front. I think the instructions could have been much better by warning the installer to pay attention when you take the old one out. But it worked and we fixed the problem for $22 and four days of waiting for the part.
Took off the top rear off the washer, Removed the top control section,disconnected the wire harness, snaped out the old switch and installed the new one, connected the wire harness, put everything back together, and it was working again!
I did a continuity check on the lid switch assembly since it was a) the easist to get to, and b) my wife's descreiption of how rthe washer stopped made me think it had something to do with the lid switch.I found that all of the contacts were open regardless of the position of the switch, and I also discovered that there was a fuse inside the swithch. I decided to order a replacement part based on the presence of the fuse.Upon repacling the fuse (a snap in affair), the washer was working again... my wife was impressed and I was happy!
I opened up the control panel on the back by removing the 4 screws and then used the print that was inside to check where the power went from the power cord. I checked the power at diferent places and determined that I did not have power coming from the lid switch with the door up or down. You could here the switch click when you opened and closed the door but aperantly it was not working. After going on your web site and looking at the other posts I realixed that there was a fuse link in the switch that was probably blown. I ordered the switch and it was a simple matter to replace when it arrived. The washer works great once more.
I removed three small bolts on the back of top panel unpluged electric plug on lid switch popped out old switch popped in new plugged in switch put top back on with the three small bolts. The wife was back in business. Easy as 1 2 3

just unplug the power , disconnect the wire from lid switch ,slide the lid switch assembly out off the switch housing . Then reverse the action I just did above and the machine work again.
Switch material hardened due to old age & broke easily when force fitted. Ordered parts online & in two business day it arrived. First open the lid & removed the side latch with screw driver carefully. Checked the length of the new plunger with the old one with respect to length & compare the stroke. Slide fit the switch & rectified the play in the plunger pusher with super glue.
Disconnected power. Then I removed the cover to the console on the back to gain access to the lid switch. Removed the switch assembly by hand and disconnected from electrical plug on machine. Attached new assembly unit to plug and reinserted new assembly onto machine. Reattached cover to console.
removed control pannel, traced current flow to lid switch,in but not through, shorted power in to motor lead machine started, ordered switch, received switch, installed new switch, washed clothes.
