Question about Washing Machines
Much of the answer to this depends on the model of your machine, but I'll take a shot at it this way.
Firstly, I'm assuming this is a top-loading machine with a hinged door. If so, you'll see the entire top is separate from the base (a small seam goes clear around your washer) which can be raised.
You might need to pull the machine away from the wall slightly to get clearance and you will probably also require use of something to use as a pry bar, like a big screwdriver.
Place your screwdriver tip in that seam and twist slightly, so as to not damage your finish. It might require a few tries, but the top will pop away from the bottom.
Once you raise the top section (that includes the lid and the big opening your put your clothes in) you'll see the drum and the stop mechanism just underneath the lid.
There will be some sort of latch there, and it'll be lodged through a loop that prevents you from raising the lid. Manually push that catch away and raise your lid, then once it's secured, lower the entire top back and snap it back into place.
