Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.


the first thing you need to do is remove the front panel. there are two clips you push up with a putty knife about 3 inches in from each side, # XXXXX on this diagram, once you push the clips in pull out at the top of the panel and then lift it off the bottom clips, the magnetic switch you can get to then, you will see there are plastic clips holding it in push those in with a screw drive and pop the switch out, this comes with connectors and you need to cut the wires and use the connectors, this comes with instructions, thanks Bryan
