How do I remove the lid of a Whirlpool dryer?

I need to replace the door switch on a Whirlpool Gold GEQ9800LWO dryer. I have watched dozens of YouTube videos on how to fix it. The filter screen is in the door, plenty of screws on the side caps of the control panel and back of the control panel. None of the videos are for my model. The control panel does not flip back. How do I take the lid off the dryer?

Go to an appliance parts store website, get an exploded parts diagram and then you can get an idea of where the screws are.
Try Sears Parts.

Wont drain and spin


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

Hello,

I suspect the problem with your dryer is the door switch as opposed to the timer...its the responsibility of the door switch to stop the dryer when the door is opened as well as turning on the light too when the door is opened.

The part number for the door switch is 3406107 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
apdepot.com
repairclinic.com

Washer will not spin/drain properly.


a large load will sometimes get out of the top of the tub and cause the lid switch mounts to break and then the unit wont spin or drain. just look under the top and if you see the lid switch just hanging or not in the right place then replace the lid switch.
