Customer reply replied 5 years ago
do you know how to replace it.
is it just two screws? or does it call for more then that?
Appliance Technician: gst85, Home Appliance Technician replied 5 years ago
once you remove the two screw you will the follow the harness to the control panel which will need to be open to disconnect the switch

Customer reply replied 5 years ago
what do you mean by follow the harness. The two screws are on the swith itself and the wire run on the side of the lid to the back. how do you open the switch if it is all broken.
Appliance Technician: gst85, Home Appliance Technician replied 5 years ago
what i meant was follow the wirs to the switch back to the control panel..you can pull up a diagram at www.partselect.com.com.www.or.com

Customer reply replied 5 years ago
yes i see that, i see it go to the back and the harness sticks out of the top of the lid and the control panel has the plug that plugs into it. so the two screws will remove the whole switch? and i can just pop in the new switch and screw the two screws back?
Appliance Technician: gst85, Home Appliance Technician replied 5 years ago
yes those two screws will remove the switch.

can i ask where the source of this you are getting this from?

I got that manual from whirlpool. Are they the same?

Im afraid to order it and it does not fit.
My daughter is at home with a big pile of dirty clothes and she is depending on me to get this fixed quickly :)

if that is the case, will this one work also. I found it on amazon for cheaper.

guess, what that part you told me to order was not the right one. that harness does not fit in that slot at all. I had to cut the harness off the old to make it work.
Appliance Technician: gst85, Home Appliance Technician replied 5 years ago
sorry about that ,but your model number calls for this exact part.
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
its alright. but be careful on the source you are using to determine that. I sent you the actual manual from whirlpool and it was one number off. I should of trusted that manual then the source you are looking at since they were off.
Appliance Technician: gst85, Home Appliance Technician replied 5 years ago
yes i understand,glad that i was able to fix your actual problem
