My Repair & Advice
So there I was.... No, ok. Nothing that exciting. The glass lid on the Cabrio Washer cracked, but not like you're thinking. The plastic sidewall separated at the point of the most pressure where the hinge joins it to the rest of the unit. Not surprising that this happened, but have seen numerous reports and one clever guy on the innernetz replaced the glass lid with the much more durable metal one, so I took his advice and did the same. Super easy repair. Take off the old one and put on the new one. Done. It's worth noting that you need the correct hinges and screws for the replacement. You can't just use the old hing and t15 starbit screws from the glass one.
