Does the washer work on any cycle at all right now other than the filling? And is the washer silent when it should be agitating or dead silent?
OK perfect, thank you for getting back. There is a very common problem with this washer and this should be fairly painless to fix. The lid switch is located in the back left corner of the top panel of the washer. There is a long metal arm that extends from the left lid hinge and hits the lid switch to tell the washer that the lid is shut. This metal arm tends to bend downwards over time making it so that it doesn't create a good contact with the lid switch. You will need to reach under the top panel through the basket opening and try to bend the arm back up, or more likely the better way to access this bar is to remove the control panel and then take the entire outer metal shell off so that you can reach under and bend the metal arm up slightly to make better contact.
Also, below is a link to a video that shows you how to remove the control panel as well as how to remove the outer shell so that you can access the lid switch bar on the left lid hinge.

So i understand it doesn't look quite like yours, but the process is exactly the same as in the video. Just ignore what it looks like and do what the video shows to take the outer shell of the washer off. Your style is the 3rd control panel style with the hidden metal clips under the right and left end caps.
OK good luck. It's at time stamp 1:18
I understand there are no screws. Did you watch at 1:18? They are showing you the 2 hidden metal spring clips that you must push to release the control panel. If this is out of your capabilities then you'll need to call a technician out.
The clips are not visible... They are hidden. Just like in the video.
Just post back if you need anything
