Glass separating from lid


Replace with steel lid. Parts below but first I have to get my 2 cents in!
I bought the replacement glass lid and it broke within the first week. Terrible design! They are using double sided tape to hold the glass to the hinge. There is too much spring tension to be held with tape. Way to go whirlpool engineers. I'm just a welder with 1 year of school and I figured that out? Hmmmm?

Steel lid retro fit
Whirlpool will tell you it can't be done. However I did and it works and looks perfectly.

here's the parts you need
All from a WTW8200 series washer
Part prices from Sears. I'm sure you can find them cheaper elsewhere if you look. I bought from sears to utilize the return policy while figuring out what parts to get. Thanks Sears! Give them the business if you can!!
1 pc 8572026 Steel lid $40.90
2 pcs 8563964 hinge $6.99 ea (hinge from the glass lid are different and the screw holes won't line up)
4 pcs W10119828 $3.99 ea (could probably get from the hardware store for half the cost.
Solution 2:
buy a replacement glass lid from whirlpool and send them your broken original glass lid and get a refund for the one you just bought. Repeat as needed until they figure out they need to produce a quality product.
Keep your whites...White and your colors bright America!!!

How do I remove outer door hinge housing to replace with new one?


there are four screws holding the hinge on to the machine. two are visible in the hinge from the front but there are two inside the machine on the left side .turn off the power and water supplies drag the machine out from its place tilt machine back to allow a gap between the drum and cabinet then using a star shaped driver also called a Torx driver remove the two screw from the hinge and remove it.when refitting a magnetic driver is a great help to prevent dropping the screws into the machine a torch is advisable to see what you are doing I hope this helps

Kenmore oasis toploader he l hinge and switch removal


#
1

Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
#
2

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
#
3

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
4

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
#
5

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
#
6

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.
#
7

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

Broken door hinge replacement on Hotpoint Ultima


Remove all the screws securing the 2 door halves together, and gently prize apart the two halves with a screwdriver or similar, be careful not to drop the door glass.. You will probably be better off removing the door from the front of the m/c altogether.
Replace broken parts as req'd.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.
