The lid switch on our washer was broken.
I followed the instructions on the online video by loosening the control panel and disconnecting the electrical connector. Then I removed the cabinet the lid switch and wiring harness. After that I installed the new switch and wiring harness, put the cabinet back on, reconnected the wiring harness to the control panel wires, put the cabinet back on and repositioned the control panel. The only extra instructions I could have used was for removing and reinstalling the cabinet. Other than that everything went smoothly!

Unable to drain water in washer and leak in dishwasher
Hi, I had a dishwasher and a dryer go out during the same weekend. I ordered both parts about 3 hours apart. We (my husband) and I could not have been more pleased. Both came in the same package and were here in a short amount of time. The parts and shipping totaled about $58.00. We feel that we saved about $1000 that weekend by doing the work ourselves (and not replacing them) and using a very user-friendly website to diagnose the problem and getting the right parts. We will definitely order from this company again. As a matter of fact, I did order a shelf for our refrigerator and had the same outcome- very satisfied with all. Walter and Mary

Washer quit working in the middle of a cycle. No draining, no spinning absolutely nothing.
My husband did the work, I was not there. But I was glad for the reviews on this website. By NOT assuming it was the timer, we made the right part purchase. And he knew right away it was the switch when he pulled it out, because it was split apart. Sorry I can't give you instructions, but I hope this will be helpful to others.

Washer would stop at rinse cycle and not spin or finish the load.
Luckily my husband and I practiced taking the washer apart before the part arrived...we wanted to look inside first before ordering. We didn't see anything wrong with the switch, but after lots of research, we figured the worst that could happen would be that we'd be out $30 if it didn't work. We were able to get to the part in less than 10 minutes. Removing the old part was a little tough because our washer is in a rental and it hasn't been well taken care of - rust on the screws and bolts etc. That was the hardest part - just dealing with old rotten screws and bolts. Installing the new part was very easy and worked just like the old one. We discovered after removing the old part, there was a crack in it on the switch itself that was hidden from view - that may have been the cause the problem. We put everything back together, crossed our fingers, and sure enough it was fixed!! Very happy with the purchase! Saved us calling the property management (who would have probably charged us for it) or a plumber....plus now we know more about washers than we ever wanted to know :)
