The washer needs to be unplugged and all connectors need to be disconnected. You will need to remove the back panel before any connectors can be reached. lable first so you will not forget what goes where. When all connectors are disconnected you will need about six feet of space in front of washer so you can lean or move unit forward. you will have to shimmy the water input tray as you do this.

Pull of the end caps #14 & 11 on the diagram. Remove the screws and the front panel will flip up. Then there are 2 clips connecting the bac to the cabimet. Snap those out and the the WHOLE front of the machine comes off if you tilt it forward. Go to sears.com and parts to bring up any model for anything and you can kind of see how things go together. Good luck.

No problem. What you want to do is this, remove the screws from the back panel first to remove that metal plate protecting the wires. Once off you need to take off the two covers on the sides of the control panel. There is one on each side, just pop them off. Once off you will see there is a screw under there holding the control panel in place. Remove the screws and that will lean back. Next take a flat head screw driver and put it under the lip of the lid on the front of the washer. I mean the lip that is about an inch down from the top on the front. Pry up and the whole lid will pop up. You will see the lid switch there held in by a screw, follow the wire to where it plugs in and unplug it and replace with the new one. Let me know if you have any other questions and if this was helpful to you. Always happy to help and good luck.

The following link explains step-by-step how to access the lid and replace it:
You do not necessarily have to disassemble the entire washer, but you DO need to release the clips that hold the washer casing to the back panel and frame so you can lift the case up enough to access the lid switch. The switch is mounted to the underside of the washer top panel. With the washer case installed, it can be difficult (if not impossible) to access the switch through the wash tub opening. The process is much easier than it sounds and will offer you the best access. Removing the washer case will also offer the quickest method of installation.
If you have not purchased a replacement switch, yet, you can purchase them from any of the following websites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need. If you do not wish to order on line, this is a common part that any appliance parts retailer should carry as part of their in-store inventory. The part number for the model number you provided is 3949238.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
