Followed the online demonstration on the website when i ordered the part. The video was outstanding and easy to follow. I now have the confidence to make other minor appliance repairs.

Took the back off/there were six phillips head screws. Took the protective cover off the Interlock Switches and found the problem. One of the buttons was jambed and would not move. I pulled the switch up and pulled the connecting wires. This took a little bit of doing as the connectors have been set for over 8 years. I used a pair of needle nose pliers. I reconnected the new switch and punched both switches and the washer started. It was an easy repair after that, putting everything back in reverse order.

Pulled off the knob, saw it was cracked, therefore it was not turning. The small metal part was stuck on the machine bit that the knob fits on so I pulled it off with a plier. Ordered a new timer knob that came with the metal part inside fit it on by hand in less than one minute.

I watched the installtion video and actually did it faster than the video and yes you do have to be careful of sharp edges I did cut one finger. Other than that no problem I was all back together and using the dryer in less than 15 minutes

Making a very loud squeaking noise

At first diagnosed the problem watching you tube videos but I did not open the machine. It took awhile to learn the first step to diagnose the issue is to find out if the squeak comes from the front or back of the machine. Mine was in the front. Once I did this I ordered the glides. When they arrived I opened up the machine and found out both the glides and the plastic piece upon which the drum turns and the glides attach were totally shot. I then ordered up that plastic piece. The repair was a breeze. Opening the machine, installing the pieces and closing up took about half an hour max. My reaction is the engineering behind these pieces is not up to par. Seemingly paper thin plastic can't stand up to the constant turning of the drum. As an ordinary consumer I expect much better. The old adage that they don't build em like they used to applies here. I was surprised by what was under the hood as they say. I almost had bought a new machine, and also consulted a repairmen which led me to believe a new machine would be my best option. However, I gave it a shot after doing some internet research and solved the problem for a fraction of the cost. And while I was in there I cleaned out the stray lint!!

Had to remove more parts than I wanted to but I had no choice. After getting unit back together and running I was relieved that I saved a ton of money.

First I turned off the breaker to the dishwasher. I then removed the bolts that held on the inner cover(note the two small bolts go on the bottom one on each side). I lifted the switch up and disconnected the wire clips from each side. I then put the new switch in place with the wires attached. Then replaced the cover and screwed it into place. Closed the door and flipped the breaker back on and turned the dish washer on and it started up. A very easy replaceable part.
