On these machines there are no screws holding the top down, get under it and pop it up using a tool that won't scratch the finish.
First I would try removing the front panel to see if it could be done through the front. Its only held by two screws in the bottom.
Good Luck

I have a gleh1642fs4 model that drum will not spin?

I have a GLEH16242 Frigidaire/Electrolux stacking washer/dryer. The main bearing went out on the washer. I did the expensive fix of replacing the outer drum/bearing assembly in hope of nothing going wrong. Everything went together well, but now it won't go into high speed spin. It does if I have no clothes in it, but as soon as I introduce clothes it only does the 'medium spin' but never advances to the high. I've changed shocks, confirmed the door switch is working properly and double checked level. Even placed it on a big thick sheet of plywood in hops of stabilizing it more. It does have a wobble to it when it starts spinning, but when it kicks into medium spin, is smooths out.

Washer will not spin. cycle timer has been replaced.

The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Here is a link to the part.

Washer fills and does the wash cycle then stops. doesnt rinse or spin

Most likely your lid switch is broken on the washer. I(t acts as a safety mechanism to stop the tub during spin should you open the lid.)
The switch is located under the top of the washer on the right side of the lid opening. It is activated by a plastic strike on the same side of the lid.

Washer won't agitate, drain or spin

quite possible that the fuse has gone bad again, if that s the case i would recommend replacing the fuse, and the lid switch.

It is possible that the belt has come off or the lid latch is no functioning.

First unplug the machine then remove the two screws from the front lower edge of the washer.

The front panel will lift up towards you at a 45 degree angle. The latches will release than the entire front panel can be place out of the way.

The lid latch can be seen on the underside of the top panel to the right, check that the wires are not loose.

You will see a large motor mounted upright near the base this should have the belt around the pulley to the bottom of the tub assembly. Check for obvious damage

Outside of this you will need a repairman for help.

Check the lid switch. Some units use a safety lock out. If it is not working then the unit will not drain or spin.
