Heavy wash broke the switch assembly

Honestly, it took more time to figure out how to get at the dang thing than it did to replace the assembly. One screwdriver for the whole project. Very easy to figure out (once I got into the machine casing, anyway).

Broken lid switch

My wife shut the lid to the washer with something stuck in the lid switch and it broke the pieces that hold the switch to the machine. I backed out the screws and put the new switch in. Couldn't really get to the screw that held the ground in place so I clipped that wire and used a wire nut to splice it to the new switch. Running the wires up to the connection wasn't that hard. Remembering to plug the connection in would have made this a lot quicker. Nice upgrade to the part too. That piece of metal under the switch is sure to keep it from breaking again anytime soon. Thanks.

Customer: Keynold from Royal Palm Beach, FL

The machine stopped after the first cycle and would not drain the water.

I unplugged the machine,
and i removed the side caps on either side of the control panel; i removed one screw on each side of the control panel.
I removed the control panel from the machine.
I located the wiring for lid switch and i unplugged it.
I installed the new switch the same way the old one was installed just as stated the "PartSelect" instructions.
