Washer not agitating

I looked for a youtube video on how to repair the lid switch. The video was very good but was filmed in a perfect world. My washer sits in a somewhat confined area so getting the outside skin put back perfectly was a bit tricky.

Washer would sometimes not go into spin cycle. Opening and closing lid would put it into spin.

Removed end caps on control panel, removed two screws, lifted the control panel and rolled it back out of the way.
Undid clips and wire connection and pulled the cabinet off. Replaced the switch and put everything back together.
Easy job but helps to have two people to get the cabinet back on right.

Broken lid switch

I unplugged the machine.
Removed the back panel.
Located the switch, removing it and then following the wire to the plug, unplugging it.
replaced with new switch, plugged it in and replaced the back panel.
Removing and putting the back panel back was the hardest part.

Lid switch screw mounts broke

I had to unscrew 2 screws that held the control panel, then remove the 2 end caps, remove 2 screws that held the control panel to the washing machine. I then lifted the control panel and leaned the lower case forward. All this to get access to the ground screw for the lid mount. It sounds like a lot, but actually it was quite simple. I replaced the old switch with a new one and put everything back together just like new. No extra screws or parts that I could not remember where they came from. Thanks Parts Select. Reading the comments from others helped me to realize that I could do the work without worry. The only problem I had was ordering the correct part. That did not happen until I got the correct part number from the old part.
