Hi my name is ***** ***** a moment to pull up the diagrams.

OK here we go - Power Off First.

a. Remove the two screws on the top cover at the back and remove the top panel. It slides back but sometimes you have to give it a tap at the front first.

b. Remove the timer knob

c Remove the console panel.

d. Taking note of the switch position and wiring connections use a flat screwdriver to depress the 'ears' on each switch end and then remove the switch.

Replacement is the reverse of the above.

cant remove console. besides two screws either side, are there any more screws

Console panel --

remove the timer knob and the two screws in the timer knob recess

Remove the two screws securing the console panel to the console packplate. Screws are located on the inside of the appliance and fix to the rear of the console through the console backplate and left hand side panel.

slide the console panel to the right to disengage the fixing lugs Remember to note the wiring to the switches.
