Washing machine not draining

1. Watch the partselect.com repair videos for either of the following parts: Part # 3363394 (White Direct Drive Water Pump - two ports) or Part # 285753A (Direct Drive Coupling).
2. After disconnecting the washing machine from the wall, these videos will show you how to disconnect the frame off the washing drum from the front. Disconnecting the top panel is a little different: pull/pop the two end pieces off, and unscrew the screws.
3. Upon removal of the front frame (per videos), disconnect the electrical device from underneath the lid, using a phillips screwdriver and a nutdriver and/or wrench. Use a flathead screw driver for the clips to remove/replace the electrical wires. No need to splice/cut any wiring.
4. Put everything back together.

Lid switch broke had to replace.

The biggest problem for me was finding the screws to remove the control panel. First there are two screws on the top back side of the control panel, then there are plastic covers that have to be removed from both sides of control panel, then you can remove the screws at the base of the control panel. Set the control panel back, then remove the golden brackets that hold the cabinet to back of the washer. The whole cabinet will come forward with a little coaxing. (Remember to put the screws with the part you have removed to make sure you put them back in the same place.) Next remove screws that hold on the lid switch, remove wiring from clips, then replace with new switch, situate wiring in clips, position switch into place, screw into place. The cabinet is really hard to get back into place, be patient it may take a few tries. Once you get the cabinet in place, replace the golden brackets, then place the control panel where the screw holes line up and screw down, replace plastic sides, then replace the screws in the back side and your done.

The top lid switch failed so washer wouldn't run.

Removed the valance by unscrewing nuts on top back and then removing side wings. The valance can be flipped up and hung over the back of the backsheet making sure not to damage clear hose. Then remove the old switch, wire and cut off the ground wire. Moount the new switch and make sure the wire is well back from the drum by tying to the old clip that held the old wire. Connect the ground to the body now under the valance. I found a hole there and screwed the ground terminal to it with a self taping screw.This procedure allows you to replace the switch without having to take the complete washer front body off.

Lid switch broke away from top.

Replaceing the actual switch was easy as unscrewing two screws with the lid up. The wiring was a different story. I guess you can cut and spice and be done with it but to get to the real connection, a lot has to come apart or have very long arms to reach from the bottom. I first removed the cover to the dials by removing the side trim and a screw at each end near the base. That exposed the wire connection. The wire actually runs under the top therefore I had to remove the back panel partially to gain access to the wiring and holders for the wire. Just by remembering the steps while backing out, everything worked out.
