The rear panel does not need to be removed to access parts under the cabinet. Do not attempt to remove it.

The washer cabinet is secured to the back panel by two (2) cabinet retainer clips located under the console. The cabinet is designed to be removed from the base as an assembly.

To remove the cabinet:

First, disconnect the power cord from the power source


The console will need to be placed in the service position by removing two hidden (2) screws, one (1) screw located at the bottom of the left hand end cap and one (1) screw located at the bottom of the right hand end cap..

In order to access the two (2) screws hidden under the left hand end cap trim and under the right hand end cap trim, the two (2) end cap trim pieces will need to be removed.

To remove the trim , place you finger behind the trim at the very top and bend it up enough to clear the console and then hinge it towards the front and off.

Remove the hidden screw under each end cap trim. Slide the console forwards about 1/4 inch and the raise it upwards and hinge it over the rear panel.

Disconnect the 3 wire lid switch harness plug located on the top. Pop the two (2) gold colored cabinet clips off.

Place the tip of a flat tipped screw driver down into the first valley and then push the handle end to the rear of the washer to pop off the cabinet clips.

Open the lid and grab the opening and tilt the top of the washer cabinet forwards just a few degrees and then walk it backwards and off.

You now have access to all parts.

Reverse the procedure to re-assemble the washer.
