Behind the control panel is a screw on each end you remove with a long slender phillips head screwdriver. You can then flip the control panel up and get to the innards. Pop the S-clips, remove the lid switch quick connect and tip the case forward. You can now replace that lid switch.
I have a couple of vids I spyed on line. One is lidswitch replacement and the other shows how to get into numerous styles of these sweet machines and I have a 3rd one on how to replace the pump and more here

I need to replace lid switch on Whirlpool Thin Twin washer/dryer unit. How do I get the switch out and the new one in


The 3 screws across the front of the slanted panel need to be removed, then the panel. At the left and right rear of the main washer top are 2 5/16" screws, these need to be removed, there is a loose fitting steel clip through a slot on the main top these are holding down, when the 5/16" screws are removed slide the entire top forward and it will release from the front fixed clips. Unplug the lid switch unit and the main top can be set aside to replace the switch. Pleazer Appliance...

Lid switch replacement


Some washing machines have the bolts that hold the top down situated behind the front panel but you have to remove the panel to gain access.
There may be 3-4 screws at the bottom of the front panel, remove the screws and the panel should come out.
Hope this has helped

The symptoms you describe are typical of a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually located on the right hand side under the cabinet. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the right side of the wash tub opening. Make sure the lid strike is still on the lid and intact, first. Then, check the mounting screws that hold the lid switch in place (two screws along the tub rim on the right hand side). Often all that is required is to tighten up the mounting screws and this will realign the lid switch where it can be properly activated by the lid strike. If the lid switch is broken, you can find a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and look under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. The lid switch is listed as item number 11 (part #3949247) and the lid strike will be listed as item number 20 (part #358684). If you do not wish to order online, take the part numbers provided by Sears and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. These are common parts that most will carry in their store inventory. The following link explains how to replace the switch:

This is a very inexpensive repair that you can easily accomplish on your own. I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.

PS This is a common problem experienced by this line of washing machines. To prevent future failures, do not slam the washer lid or place anything heavy on the lid. Repeatedly slamming the lid to get it to work, or manipulating the timer can can more potential problems.
