I bought the part to replace the switch assembly on the top. How do I get to it on the washer? I have to take the top of the washer off I guess, but what is the easiest way? Remove the whole back?

Re: replacing switch on washer
This is done from the front. You must remove the outer cabinet first.
UNPLUG YOU WASHER BEFORE CONTINUING!
1.) Remove the 2 phillips screws on either side of the control panel and rotate the panel up and out of the way. (These screws may be hidden by the trim pieces on the ends... if so, just use a small screwdriver and pry the trim pieces off... they just snap in and out.)
2.) There are 2 brass colored clips under the panel. One on either side. Poke your screwdriver into the slot (the tip of your screwdriver will be facing down) and pry backwards toward the wall to remove these.
3.) Disconnect the white electrical connector that's plugged into the top of the cabinet.
4.) Now tilt the entire cabinet toward you. Bring it to a 45 degree angle... this will release the clips. Then lift and pull it off of there and set it aside.
You now have access to the switch assy.

You may have blown the internal fuse located in the lid switch. Could be you over loaded the washer and blew the fuse.
Unplug the washer and remove the four screws holding the control panel front in place. Two screws on top and two screws under control panel.
Remove the control panel and tilt forward.
Locate the lid switch assemble and remove glass fuse and inspect.
Door switch assembly should be replaced. When you order the proper fuse it should come with the door switch assembly.
Replace assembly. Reinstall the front control panel and four screws.
Plug machine in and test.
we just bypass them,unless your going to stick your hand in there during spin cycle,-unplug washer,remove the 2 head screws 1 on each side of the head,flip the head up,you will see the lid switch jack in the middle of the top of washer, unplug it,cut the 2 outside wires and wire nut them together,plug back in,put the head back,plug in washer and your done,this way it cost you nothing to fix,the other way would be around $40,let me know how you do-mike
You don't have to remove the washer top. Use a putty knife to push the tabs in on the left and right side, about two inches from the sides, at the top seam of the front panel. Front panel pulls forward and lifts off bottom pegs. Lid switch has a tab you need to push toward the center of the switch (its on the back side of the switch) which will allow the switch to push up. twist the switch and pass it back down through the washer top.
Its looks like a lid switch issue.
The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
