Hi, Remove the two screws in the lower front panel. Insert a flat blade screw driver into the gap between the top and front panel. There are two spring clips holding the top to the front panel. Once the top is raised, the front panel will push down and release.
The lid switch is located in the upper right hand corner attached to the side panel.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Can you by pass the lid switch


I appreciate your inquiry, friend!

Based off what you have described you would like to bypass the lid switch on your Frigidaire washer. It is not recommended to bypass this part. Doing so could lead to a fault within your washer. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Washer will not drain or turn on


You have a bad lid switch. It is usually just 2 wires which you can cut and splice together to bypass the switch. The motor on those runs the motor which spins the tub and pumps the water out, the lid switch is there to interrupt the motor if lid is opened. Now some of these models have a door lock incorporated into the switch as well. if that is the case here then you need to replace the whole switch/lock assembly.
