GE top load washer

Washer is about 9years old. My wife is very mechanical, and I'm out of town. She tried to remove the top lid to change the damper staps, only the front panel came off. How do you remove the top lid completely??

    What is your model number? On most GE washers, once you get the front panel off, there are 2 1/4" screws on the right and left hand sides up near the top. Once you take these off, you can pop out your lid switch (lifting the top completely before doing so can ruin it). Then finnish lifting the lid slide it towards the right and lift it out of the way. 2 5/16" screws on each of your 4 dampning straps and you will have them all out.

How do i remove the lid on a ge profile harmony washer?


Use a putty knife to remove the front panel first/
The putty knife will insert between thr top of the lid and the front panel about 2 inches in from each side.
The panel will pull forward then up to remove it.
Then remove the screws holding the lid down.
You may have to open the control console to remove the lid.

Your lid switch may be bad. These fail mechanically and electrically.7ac16b8.jpgTo get to the lid switch first remove the front panel so that you can get the top loose it is bolted down. Use a putty knife and do downward force to release the front panel spring clips.8e17656.jpgRemove the top and you will see the lid switch quick connect. Unplug that and sit the top down on a work bench or table. Check the switch for mechanical and electrical failure. Set your meter to ohms and close the lid. You should have continuity.

Need to remove top cover of GE WPXQ3090T2WW top load washer


There should be 2 screws holding it on at the rear. Looking from the rear these will be at each top corner. Once these are removed push the lid from the front of the machine towards the rear and it will pop off.
