David I believe your wife has asked the same question. I supplied her the manual. Here are the instructions again for your benifit.
The problem that you are having is a fairly common one. The lid switch of your unit is shot.
It will need to be replaced. To do this you need to get the cabinet off from the chassis.
Start by removing the two screws at either side of the control panel. These may be under plastic end pieces. If they are the caps tilt towards you and up from the bottom.
Tilt the control panel up and to the rear of the unit. There will be a 2 wire plug in the middle under the control panel. Disconnect it.
There are two clips that the panel hinges on. These are also the clips that hold the cabinet to the chassis. Un hook them from the cabinet with a screwdriver or putty knife. The control panel stays attached on top of the back panel.
You can now rotate the cabinet towards you. Tilt it back until you can remove it from the chassis. The lid switch is the two wire plug you disconnected earlier. Unscrew it and replace it with the new switch.
Reassemble in the reverse order.
The switch is a very common part and any appliance center will have the part.
