Remove four screws which held the front cover of the washer. Dropped the cover down to expose the temp. switch. Turned the switch 1/8 turn counterclockwise which removed the switch from the cover. Pulled of the four pigtail wire leads and then installed the new switch in reverse order. Very easy!!
Unplug machine, verified the hot water line to the washer was clear. Used screwdriver to remove top panel from washer. Removed faulty (rusted) temperature switch from seating. Then removed each of the wires from the old switch with needlenose pliers and placed them on the proper area of the new switch. Placed the switch back on the panel and screwed the cover back on. Then plugged the unit back in an tested the hot, cold and warm settings. Easy fix.
reconnected the wires and turned the water source on
Removed three nut screws and raised the control panel forward twisted the old switch off removed one wire at a time and put it on the new switch. I did this so the wires would be where they should. After I put the new switch on I replaced the three nut screws I plugged the washer in set it on cold water and it worked like it should.
I shut off the juice to the Washer, I then removed the 4 torx head screws in the panel, so I could gain access to the switch. I then unpluged a small hose going to the switch, then turned the switch by hand about half a turn & it came right out. I then replaced the switch with the new one by turning it half a turn in opposite direction, replaced hose, put the back panel back on, ran the machine to make sure it was working properly. It is working fine, thanks to Part Select.com , fast service I would reccomend them to my freinds.
