No clips found! To remove top or front

My Roper RAX4232KQ's lid switch has fallen apart and is now inside. I need to get to the switch area AND inside to retrieve part. Tried suggestions here. There are NO clips in crack between top and front of washer ON FRONT area...would they be on the side area? Washer is full of clothes and water so don't want to try to move it to much as I have a bead back.

That could be your lid switch. You should hear an audible click when you shut the lid. If the washer act like it is trying but won't spin that could be the drive coupler. I have a page which includes a service manual HERE

My RAS8244LQO Rober washer won't spin . Can you

Usually a drive coupling or lid switch assembly, if this is a Roper washer. If you put the timer on spin and turn it on, it runs but wont spin then it is a coupling 99% of the time. If it wont start in spin then check your lid switch. This washer has a very cool design to get into the mechanism. The top console flips up, usually you have to take out two screws on each of the front corners and then pull the console forward and up until it flips upside down. Disconnect the lid switch wiring harness and take a large flat screw driver and stick it into the left and right hand slots that have the brass retainer clips . You stick the screwdriver straight down and then pry the clips out by pushing back on the screwdriver. Remove both clips, grab the outer washer cabinet and tip it towards you, at a 45 degree angle you can slide the front of the cabinet out from under the base and remove the whole cabinet. Now you will need to remove the water pump, two clips, leave the hoses on, the motor has two clips that sometimes has two screws holding the clips on. Unclip the motor wiring and remove the motor. You will see the drive coupling, three parts, one rubber cushion with 6 holes and two round discs with three fingers. The two discs are attached to the motor shaft and the transmission shaft. Usually you will see broken fingers, worn holes or cracked plastic when you have a bad coupling. You need to remove the plastic parts from the shafts, and install the new coupling by tapping them onto the shaft. I usually use a long 3/8 inch extension and a light hammer to tap the coupling on untill the coupling is flush with the shaft. Install the black cushion onto the transmission disc, line up the motor disc with the cushion holes, install the bottom motor clip first, and then the top motor clip. This ususally requires some strong thumbs to clip the top motor clip on. Reinstall the pump, the cabinet. Make sure the cabinet is on the side rails in back. Reinstall the cabinet clips, plug your lid switch wiring back in and reinstall the console. Good Luck.

When checking out the lid switch on my roper washer as jsrock suggested in another post, i heard a screw drop from the inside of that area which caused the lid switch to become unmounted completely. also,...

Top lid pull up. Look in seam between top and front cover. On each side you will see where top clips to front cover. Put a screwdriver in there and lightly pry up till clip releases. Front cover will now pull up and be removed, so you could get what fell in.

to get the front off and LIFT the front up
before pulling towards you so the bottom clips
won't break.Get the lid switch disconnected and set the front aside.
Oil the rollers and idler, vacuum out the lint.
The new belt goes rib side down on the tub. The idler mounts like the one pictured

ROPER RAX4232KQ1 Does not spin

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and transmission. A new coupler cost around $10 and is fairly simple to replace.
Remove the two screws that hold the console to the cabinet and flip the console back.
Remove the two clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel of the washer and unplug the lid switch harness. The cabinet will tilt forward and slide off.
Remove the clips holding the water pump and move it to the side.
Unplug the wires from the motor and remove the clips holding it.
You will see the motor coupler.
Make sure you can turn the gearcase shaft with a pair of pliers so it is not locked up.
Post back and let me know what you find out.
