Washer would not do anything. Stopped in the middle of a load of wash.I noticed a few times that I had to open and reclose the lid to get it to start, so I thought it was the lip switch.
Looked at other peoples instructions and did the same, but I had 5 screws not 2. 3 needed wrenches and 2 needed a screw driver. I'm a 67 year old woman I I did it . It was easy!

Remove 2 screws behind end panels, also use nut driver to remove 2 screws hold plastic retraining straps . Lift control panel out of the way . Open lid, lid switch is on back left side of lid . Disconnect ground wire and squeeze back side of clip on lid switch . Tilt froward carefully and remove . Reverse proces and gather up dirty clothes and you are ready to wash. Takes less than 15mins and saves you a ton of cash . It's really that simple.

Lid switch had overheated and was fused to wiring harness
REmoved lid switch fist and replaced it. Then replaced the wiring harness one plug at a time following the original exactly . Too bad we could not find any instructions for replacing the wiring harness.Do not remove the entire wiring harness and then try to replace it---you'll be sorry.

Water would fill but washer would not start
Unplugged the washer , removed 2 Phillips head screws behind the control panel at the corners. Next I removed 2 5/16" head screws for the console straps. Next I removed the screw for the switch ground strap. Next lift the lid about 3 inches and the part slips right out. Installation in reverse order. Took longer to type out these directions than it did to do the job.
