Hello scottwbecket,
Not sure I have the right model for you but try this link to see if it provides exploded views of your washer ( as well as parts and electrical diagrams) If it is correct, you should able to see how the top is assembled and simply remove it. If not,you can plug in your real model number at this website and it should provde those details for you..

The cycle stops at final rinse and water is left in the drum.............until I cycle the knob and depress to activate.


tighten the hinge screws on the top left of the lid. If that doesn't get it started hit the top to engage the lid switch which is hooked into the left hinge on a whirlpool. if its a maytag, its in the center of the rear lid and you must remove the consoles rear to access the lid switch

I NEED INTO GET INTO THE TOP OF THE WASHER TO REPLACE THE OPEN LID KILL SWITCH


You should be able to remove / open the top control panel (rear top) screws and tip it out forward to gain access to the lid switch. Be careful of the small air line that goes to the pressure switch. If that comes unhooked your machine will over fill.

How do I acces the lid switch on my kenmore washer


The following link explains step-by-step how to access and/or replace the lid switch on a Kenmore top loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

Most lid switches are located under the right hand side of the top panel. Some, are located adjacent to either lid hinge. In any case, you still need to remove the washer exterior case to access it. The switch is held in place with a couple of mounting screws with a ground wire attached. This is a very simple repair, but if you experience any difficutlies please let me know. I hop this helps you.

How do you remove the top of a MAH5500B Front Load Washer


you need to remove the door hinges and the screws opposite the hinges. that will allow you to remove the front panel and the you will see the latch and the top hold down screws. once you have the top up, then you will also need to remove 2 screws that hold the latch to the upper frame. it is hard to pivot the latch out from the frame but it will come out and then you can replace the assembly.
by the way.. why are you wanting to replace the latch?? any failure codes? you might also have to replace the control board as it will fail when the door latch shorts out.
if you look at the control board you might see some of the resistors that have burnt out/ shorted out. sorry but it happens alot.
if it is less then 5 years old, then you might get it fixed under warranty for free part.
