I have a GE WSM2480DWW Spacemaker washer/dryer. Am trying to fix the lid switch but need to get at it. I think I need to open the front panel but can't figure out the trick. Can you possibly help?
Thanks so much for your help!
I think you use a putty knife and slip it between the lid and the front panel and depress some clips that hold it on. I'm looking for the same answer and that's all I've been able to piece together so far. The GE manual is worthless on this point.

i would first check the lid switch it could have a broken wire on it. here is the picture of where it is located. the part number for it is WH12X955. you could also check the direct drive coupling which is located on the motor shaft and consists of 3 pieces. this coupling takes the place of a belt. your machine does not have a belt on it. the coupling part number is 285140. hope this helps.
you need to remove the slanted panel between the washer and the dryer. There will be 2 screws holding the top of the washer to the cabinet. Locate the screws on the back edge of the washer top along with the 2 brackets that hold the top.
Once the brackets have been removed, the washer top panel will pull toward you and lift off of the cabinet. You will be able to see the lid switch and test it. If you are testing the lid switch for continuity, remamber to activate the switch while testing. If the switch shows an open circuit, replace the switch.
Please let me know if this hhelps you at all or if I can assist you further.
try replacing your water selenoid coming in. remember it isnt a mechanical timer it is a computerized timer, so if the selenoid isnt the problem, it might be the computerized timer. computers are very finicky, pain in the a- -!
