do you see about 2-4 inches down a crease that runs all the way around the top?
there are 2 clips in the front you need to push in with a putty knife and lift the whole top up.
if you where to look at the very left corner and go about 5-6 inches in you will find the clips.
can be a pain.
make sure when you do lift the whole top that you hold the lid or it will crash into something.
let me know if this helps

SOURCE: glass separating from lid
Replace with steel lid. Parts below but first I have to get my 2 cents in!
I bought the replacement glass lid and it broke within the first week. Terrible design! They are using double sided tape to hold the glass to the hinge. There is too much spring tension to be held with tape. Way to go whirlpool engineers. I'm just a welder with 1 year of school and I figured that out? Hmmmm?
Steel lid retro fit
Whirlpool will tell you it can't be done. However I did and it works and looks perfectly.
here's the parts you need
All from a WTW8200 series washer
Part prices from Sears. I'm sure you can find them cheaper elsewhere if you look. I bought from sears to utilize the return policy while figuring out what parts to get. Thanks Sears! Give them the business if you can!!
1 pc 8572026 Steel lid $40.90
2 pcs 8563964 hinge $6.99 ea (hinge from the glass lid are different and the screw holes won't line up)
4 pcs W10119828 $3.99 ea (could probably get from the hardware store for half the cost.
buy a replacement glass lid from whirlpool and send them your broken original glass lid and get a refund for the one you just bought. Repeat as needed until they figure out they need to produce a quality product.
Keep your whites...White and your colors bright America!!!
