The washer would not spin

One of the easiest repairs I have done to this machine. I took off the back plate of the control panel (the machine was already unplugged) disconnected the connection, removed the old switch and replaced it with the new one. Once all that was done I connected the wires, screwed the back plate back on, plugged it in and started doing laundry.

The End.

CustomerDAVID from ATASCADERO CA

Washer would not start or fill up.

First of all unplug the washer and turned the water off to the washer. I second removed to back plate from the top control panel. Third using a 10mm nutdriver removed the two screws holding the control panel to the top of the washer, slid the control panel toward the front and flipped it out of it's grooves. Fourth unplug the lid switch. Fifth slide the old switch forward, up, and out. Finally replaced the new switch and lined the push button on the switch up with the lid detent switch. Plugged the cable switch back in, turned on the water, and plugged in the power cable. Tested the washer to ensure the switched was lined up correctly. Once the water started coming out. I turned off the machine unplugged the washer and finished reassembling the control panel. All in less than 10 minutes and SAVED myself over $130 for a service call.
