If it is a top loading washer the cabinet itself is actually removed from the back panel and base frame.

1. Remove two trim caps on either side of the control panel, they are just plastic, and clip in place, either remove by hand, or if they don't come right away you can pop them off with a flat blade screwdriver.
2. Remove two screws (now visible with trim removal) that secure the panel to the cabinet.
3. Panel should now be able to pull up and out, flip it back on it's hinges.
4. Disconnect the wire harness from the lid switch connector, this should be the only place (on most models) where wires connect from the control panel to the cabinet top.
5. Remove the two gold clips that secure the cabinet to the rear panel of washer, they snap into the cabinet, and should pop out easily with a flat screwdriver, this can be difficult to figure out which way to go with the screwdriver, the best I can describe it would be to slide the blade of the screwdriver into the front of the clip (about 2 inches below the cabinet top) and then press the screwdriver back over the top of the clip for leverage. It should pop right out.
6. With the clips removed, you should now be able to simply tip the cabinet towards yourself and pull it right off of the frame. The washers "guts" should all be accessible now.
Hope that helps.

How do you get the panel back onto the back of the machine with the two gold clips? We can't seem to get the clips in place.

Check to see if the power is getting to the machine. If it ismake sure the door is closed firmly, there is a safety switch on the door. If none of these things work, you have adoor switch problem or a panel fuse out or a broken panel circuit. If you have the skills to open and troubleshoot than those are the things to look for.

I cant find my filter


It is either behind the kick plate at the front or in the pipe on the bottom of the drum which runs to the pump.
This is acessed by removing the panel at the back.
Hope this helps & thankyou for using Fixya.
