Removed two screws at the rear of the control console. Tilted the console back,Unplug the lid switch cabe from the washer. Remove one screw on the rear of the panel near the left side. Raise lid, and raise the washer cabinet, and pull forward. Lay the cover on flat serface. Use a blanket or piece of carpet to protect the finish. This will give you access to the lid switch assembly. I went to a web site i found by Google, (how to replace whirlpool lid switch) which was very helpful.
