I watched the video first. It was correct except for the tool was not a phillips screwdriver, but a torx drive. Rounding up the tools took the longest. Everything else was just like in the video.

I replaced both the pin and the hinge. The old screws did not fit these parts nor did either of the parts fit the other part although they were almost identical. Screws should be included with the parts as these are supposed to be replacements. Do not try to order only a pin or a hinge without the other. Delivery was very quick.

I watched the video. Not as easy to hand start the screws ,as shown, in the new hinges (I replaced both) I used a drill with a phillips bit to pre start the screws with the hinge in a vise. It then had threads cut, which made it possible to hand start, and I finished with the drill/bit to tighten up.

Broken hinge on the lid

Exactly like the video told me to! Seriously, I watched once when I ordered the parts, watched it again just before I started the job, and played each step as I completed that step. It simply could not have been easier. Without the video, I doubt I could have located and released the latches on the top of the washer, but seeing not only where he put the knife but the motion he used to spring them made that step so much easier than I thought it would be. With your help, I only paid a quarter of what the repairman wanted to make this simple fix -- Thank you!

I followed the instructions on your video - it was very helpful! I would have never figured out how to take the top off without the video instructions. I released the top latches using the putty knife, removed the broken lid hinge & pin and installed the new ones.
