To remove the lid on both the A406 and A408, pull one side
up (hard) so the hinge ball pops out of its socket in the cabinet
top. The lid 'hinges' are just pea-size plastic balls, Maytag
part #211726. BTW, they're easy to lose when the lid pops -
I assume you're removing the lid to clean under it, and if so,
that IS the best way to get to the crud, but it can be hard to
remove - especially the first time (after you pull them a few
times it gets a lot easier - the practice helps <grin>).
Hope that helps.
