Basically in the back upper part, remove the screws that holds the electrical control, then tip the electrical control up, that will enable you to slide the cover forward and tippet that up

I don't know who is worse for leaving out the little important steps.
Chilton manuals or you tube videos.
A couple of inches from the corners there is a clip. Take a screw
driver or a scraper and push inward from the front to collapse the clip. Then push
upward. Once you get one corner released hold that corner up.
If you let go you will most likely have to do it again.
But while holding upward reach over and release the other clip.
Once both corners are released the lid can be pushed upward
being held by the hinges in the back. Once up at about 90 degrees
you can pull the lid upward off of the hinges. Be careful of the
attached hoses and wires that go to the control panel.

There are clips in the seam near the front corners that can be pushed in with a putty knife to release.

WHY do you want to remove it?

If it is still in warranty you could void what you have. Manufacturers of electronic items have started to put in \' traps\'-things which indicate that a seal has been broken from someone messing around with something that needs a technician\'s expertise. Remember that this is Not Your Mothers\' Washing Machine and tread carefully.

How to remove the control unit on a hotpoint wm62 washing machine please


The main control unit on the WM62 is at the top behind the user facia control panel. If you remove the lid you should get relative easy access to it. If memory serves, there are 2 wee plastic plug to remove on the SIDES of the top lid, ease them out with a flat screw driver, then you need a torx T20 screwdriver to remove the screws behind the plug. The lid should now be removed with a gentle knock forward from the rear of the lid. Remove the soap drawer and you will see a few more screws, remove these and the 2 screws on the top of the Facia, the control unit is now easily removed.

How do I remove a lid switch on my washer model #110.20432991 part #3949238?


You will need a 5/16 nut driver, phillips and flathead screwdriver. Remove endcaps on rh and lh side of console by pulling from the top towards you. That will give you access to phillip screws located beneath. Disconnect the lid switch under console, and unlatch gold colored clips attatched to rear panel and cabinet with a flathead. Use a phillip screwdriver to remove lid switch from cabinet and 5/16 nutdriver to remove ground screw underneath main top. Unclip the lid switch from under top. Reverse process to install.

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.

Lid not turning washer on


Sounds like a lid switch problem most likely. When closing the lid, slowly lower it and listen/feel for a "click" when the lid is about 3 inches from being completely closed. If you don't, then you have a broken lid switch.

The model of washer you listed, TAWS800JQ, has two different possible lid switches and you get to them differently.



To get to the lid switch, you need to remove 2 screws that hold the control console in place. There is 1 on the left and 1 on the right of the console. They can either be on the front side and easy to see, or on the back side. Loosen those screws so that the console is free and you can flip it up and backwards out of your way.

One type of lid switch can be seen on the left side after you flip the control console up and back out of your way. There is just a little clip that holds it in place. The lid needs to be raised in order to remove the lid switch. Unplug the wiring harness and replace.

The other type, do this:
Then use a flat blade screwdriver to remove the brass spring clips on the left and right side of the washer that hold the front/sides/top on. Unplug the lid switch in the middle of the washer top and then you can remove the wrap-around cabinet. The lid switch is under the top and is held in place by clips and 2 screws.

No Spin No Drain


Lid switch is most likely the problem, if lid switch is visible under lid on right side then this is older design and common problem switch.
if you have console frame covers on front sides, snap off from top, a screw is at bottom front corners of console, remove and pull console forward and fold back. If lid swich is hidden then you will see it at left on top of cabinet with console folded back. a 5/16 screw holds a green ground wire to cab. remove and switch will unclip with lid up. If lid switch was visible under lid then you need to remove 2 brass clips holding cabinet on top of base to back, pry with screwdriver to unclip. undo harness connection on cabinet top, this is your lid switch connection. sw body is held by 2 phillips screws, harness tube held by clips on underside of cabinet top. ground wire with 5/16 screw present at sw body. New versions of this switch have metel shield attached.
