Washer would not run, lid switch broken

Repair was easy. Removed two side panels on the control plate. Removed two phillips screws that hold the control panel to the body of the washer. Disconnected the electic connection to the wires leading to the lid switch. Three sided of the lower cover lift over and removed from the washer frame. Access to the lid switch and wire retainers was easy. Removed two screws holding the remaining parts of the switch and replaced with new. Re-routed the wires through the retainers. Set the sides back on making sure the set all the way back in the frame and fit properly into the plastic strips on the back of the washer. Reconnected wires, screws and end caps.

Washer would not spin and drain (bad lid switch)

The first thing I did was unplug the washer (didn't want any suprizes). Then I removed the two screws from the lid switch and let it dangle. Then through the space between the tub and cabinet I chased the wires to each wire holder (there are two). Then I removed the two end caps on the top of the washer and unscrewed the top (2 screws ) rotated the top of the washer back (where the timer is). Then unpluged the lid switch and connected the new switch and put everything back together (reverse of how I took it apart). It has taken me longer to write this review then it did to change the switch. But if it helps just one person fix their washer and not have to call a service man. I'll be happy.

Washer wouldn't advance to "spin" due to switch lid break

The hardest thing was figuring out how to get behind the control panel. The plastic side brackets popped off to expose some screws, etc. We got back behind the control panel, removed the old part, and put in the new one. No splicing or removing the sides. Go directly from behind the control panel! (small hands or a good flashlight would be helpful to get the new part mounted.

Old switch broke off

The new switch was quite different than the old, so I wasn't sure it was the right part. On closer examination, I saw it had been greatly improved and strengthened. I merely unscrewed the old switch, cut the wires, and installed the new switch, using wire nuts to rewire it. This switch is clearly a good fix for a weak design. Sure glad I found partselect.com!
