The procedure is easy… you just have to redirect it to non-www version and then set non-www version as the preferred version in search console but why are you doing this? This is not advisable.

  1. Go to WordPress, general settings remove www
  2. Do search and replace against www for HTTP and HTTPS.

If everything good, redirect from www to non-www will be handled automatically in most hosting. In some cases, you may need to do.

This works well but I am getting broken images everywhere, might be something wrong in the path.

Ya. May be SSL is missing for non-www. Whatever case, you can check with console logs.
