I am going to replace the door latch/lock switch on my washer. Are there tricks to removing the front panel to access the switch and are there any precautions while doing so. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks- Bruce M. Floyd

no need to take front panel off. remove spring that holds gray door boot in place. look around the edge you'll find the spring you pull to stretch. pell back boot remove screws from switch disconnect wires and you're all set.

Sublime Master Kohai- By following your instructions even a grasshopper such as myself was able to have the old switch out and in my hand in under 5 minutes. Thank you again for your wisdom- Bruce M. Floyd
