thank you Scrapiron got it open, but what I found was the 2 plastic bosses that the lid lock switch mounts with, have cracked and wont retain the lid lock switch screws. cant see a fix except for lid replacement. very poor design for such an expensive machine the lid part is right around $3000.00 its #2 in the exploded view.
Is it possible whirlpool designed a repair kit for this problem? I bet it will be a common problem looking at the design
the W10329932 L-84 Whirlpool Vertical Modular Washer Service Manual is different from this unit, mine doesnt have the belt drive gearcase mine has the cabrio direct drive mechanism and the computer screen.
