i have a admiral top load washer i cant get the lid opened it is locked. so i cant get the model number.
how do i get the lid opened?
Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! If you look at the bottom of the front panel, do you see a couple of Phillips screws?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes there is

Great! If you remove those two screws, that front panel will pull down and free to be removed. You will then be able to reach up and manually move the locking arm that has the lid locked down. It will likely look like the picture below. Let me know what you find.

what is the part # XXXXX need to replace?

Well, the model number would be very useful to be certain it is the correct one. There are a couple different styles. Does it look like the one pictured above?
