How do you replace the lid lock mechanism on a Whirlpool Cabrio washer?

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio model WTW6200SW1 washer and the lid lock is broken so we need to replace it. I'm not sure if you have to take the top off the washer or the whole cabinet.

To replace the lid lock assembly you will raise the top of the washer. Remember to unplug the washer first.

The image below shows how to do this. Use a putty knife to release the clips and raise the top.

I hope this information is helpful to you but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.
