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.

filled with water and that was all. nothing worked. pushed on lid and put weight on it and it would work, until the new lid switch came in.
open lid and remove one clip on each side under timer compartment . needed channel lock pliers because they were hard to remove. keep lid open and un clip the old lid switch and also remove ground wire. replace new switch. before closing compartment make sure washer is working. also remember to un plug washer before starting work. I put the clips holding the compartment in place and then shut the compartment. this was easier than trying to move the washer drum and trying to replace them from under the lid .
