I usually stand in front of the washer and take the plams of my hands and forcefully provide a force with the heel of my hands on the side front corners and the lip comes up
Another option is to pull the washer out and remove 2 clips (usually requires quarter inch nut driver to allow the top to come up
This should allow you to get the top off to see if a spring has broken or slipped off

Most likely you are having a problem with your lid switch. If your machine has a hole on the right side, under the lid, you should be able to see a switch just below the surface. An arm on the lid pushes the switch to allow the machine to spin.
For starters I would unplug the machine and put my hand under the cabinet where the switch is. You may feel that it has separated (glue) and can push it back together. If so, there is a chance you can fix it quickly right now. Take out the two screws and pull the switch under the lid (above the tub) to inspect it. If it is separated at the glued joints just push it back together and put a zip tie around it. Put it back in place, add screws, plug the machine in and test.
If parts have fallen out you may need to replace it. I would suggest http://www.partsblowout.com as they are cheaper than anyone else for appliance parts.
If the switch is not separated or you don't have this type of switch let me know and I'll tell you how to troubleshoot other problems.
