Can any one tell me how to easily get the control panel off this washer? The lid switch is bad. I got it out but can't get the control panel off. It does not have the screws in the front or in the back or under a plastic cover. . I don't remember seeing spring clips either. It does have two screws on each side under the bottom of the control panel. I can see them just can't easily get to them. I got one of them out . Problem is how to get it all back together after I replace the lid switch.

This video is on APP page for a common WP lid switch. The switch is not the proper one for your machine but the video shows how to use a putty knife under the control panel ends to release the spring clips.

The switch you need is this one:

While searching the web I found someone else having problems removing the control panel on this washer. Is there any one out there that is familiar with this model washer?
 
Kenmore washer. model 110.28422700 type 111-07 I have the timer I just can not get in the control panel from the back or sides. I need to know how to get the top control panel open to install the timer.

Many of us are familiar with this washer. It is a favorite of many technicians. Watch this video;

See how the control panel ends have hooks? The hooks are disengaged by pulling the bottom of the control panel forward. Some machines have a screw at each end holding everything down while yours has a clip.

Insert a putty knife as shown in the video. The clips have to be pushed in to release the front of the control panel ends; then pull forward and up on the end you are working on.
