Question about Westinghouse WWS833ES Super Capacity Top Loading Washer w/ Precision Wash System
I need to replace the lid switch on my washing machine, and am having trouble getting the front of the washing machine off. I have unscrewed the to screws at the bottom, but cannot figure out how to get the front off. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Malibu Insert a flat screwdriver or a putty knife between the top panel and the front panel and push the fron panel down, then pull it out. Gendos...post back

Tips for a great answer:
One of the most common problems with washing machines, however, is that they won't spin. Usually this is caused by an issue that easily can be fixed, but other times it can be more serious. In some cases, just the balance of the load can cause the machine not to spin.
For that reposition the clothes. Close the lid and retry. The washer may not spin at all if the tub is unbalanced.
Check the lid switch for wear. Replace a worn lid switch by first using a screwdriver to remove the top of the machine. Remove the cabinet holding the old switch in place by unscrewing the two console screws, tilting the console back, removing cabinet clips, and unlocking the lid switch block. Unscrew the mounting screws, and disconnect the ground wires before removing the old switch. Insert the new switch in its place.
Then check for lose or worn or crack in belt. If these signs appear, remove the old belt by tipping the washing machine over on its side, and unscrew the clamps securing the pump coupling with a screwdriver. Place the new belt over the transmission pulley, and then over the motor pulley's nearest edge, slowly turning the motor pulley to pull the belt around and into the pulley.
Replace the washer's motor by firmly grasping on the metal slip-on connectors holding the wires in place, allowing you to pull the connectors apart. Use a screwdriver to unscrew all of the screws holding the motor in place, and remove the old motor. Insert the new motor in its place. Secure the new motor to the machine with screws, and reconnect the motor's wiring harness.
Replace the washer's pump by removing the service panel on the back of the machine with a screwdriver and disconnecting the washing machine drain line and the rubber pump outlet hose. Remove the fasteners holding the pump to the bottom of the machine, along with the drive belt from the pulley below the pump. Replace the old pump with a new one, and reinstall the drive belt back on the pulley, reinsert the fasteners and reconnect the rubber pump inlet and discharge lines.
So there are various conditions when a washing machine wont spin. Please check this link to get a detailed idea related to your problem:-
