My Repair & Advice
Well, not exactly as planned. Door switch assembly went in exactly as described and worked once then stopped working. At that point, I took it out, put it back, checked all connections on the door switch assembly, and the like. Nothing worked.
Figuring the door switch assembly was probably good (it worked once) I moved to the main circuit board. After fiddling with the connections back there, it worked like a charm.
Seems the problem wasn't the door switch assembly at all, but was corrosion on the circuit board. I bought some electronics cleaner from Radio Shack and will spray down the connectors and contact points later today.
