I have a Kenmore 70 series. Model#: 20712990. Series: CK3554772. Type: 111.

It will not click over to the rinse and spin cycle. It will wash just fine. I have pin pointed the problem, but don't know how to remove the lid. The activator is loose. Is there a way to remove the lid without taking everything off in the back? I have a load of laundry in there with water and I'm hesitant to go through the back to take everything apart.

** Model# 20712990 **

The complete model number may be 110.20712990 making it a Whirlpool built 'direct drive' design.

** Is there a way to remove the lid without taking everything off in the back? **

You mean the washer "top" as opposed to just the lid covering the opening for the clothes?

If the washer top, no it is not separately removable. It is part of the rest of the cabinet which would need to be removed (or at least tilted forward) to access components beneath it. The back is not removable.

** The activator is loose. **

From your problem description I assume you have a problem with the lid *switch* (see the following links) and not just the lid switch actuator.
