Between the front panel and the top there is a seam. On each side of the seam there is a clip. Take a putty knife and push on the clip. One is on the left and one on the right. Than just pull the top of the panel straight back and unhinge from the bottom. Hope that helps, Dave www.washermd.com

Where is my suspension spring on my washing machine


The suspension springs on your washing machine are used to either suspend the tub assembly from the cabinet or to stabilize the tub assembly to the washer base. They also absorb the vibration of the wash basket while the machine is in the spin cycle. Occasionally these springs will become damaged, stretched or detached which can cause excessive noise and vibration from your washer during the spin cycle. You will need to remove the top or front panel of the washing machine to gain access to the suspension springs. Inspect for stretching or damage and ensure that they are securely attached at both ends. Use caution when replacing the springs as they are under tension and always wear the proper protective clothing. We recommend that you replace all of the suspension springs if any are determined to be defective.

How do i fit the drum suspension spring on my font loader ariston washing machine


If you have already remove the top cover, front cover and back cover of the washer. You can gain access to the bottom portion of the tumbler. There you can jack up the tumbler with a jack of some sort, so that the tumbler is higher easier to latch on the spring to the hooking holes and not have to struggle with the tension of the springs.thinkfixya.pnghen put them onto the hook holes.

sounds to me like you have a bad transmission
what happens when you take the agetator off
does it still make the noise or does it go away?
if it goes away when you take the agetator off then you have a bad agetator

Door has no tension on it when opening it. It seems like a spring may be broke. How is the best way to go about checking it out and repairing it. Thanks Joey


Remove the front bottom access plate.
Look inside on the bottom right and left front corners for the spring and replace it in the grooves and slots from the door hinge to the cabinet base.
If the cabinet sides are in your way,you must remove the 2 screws mounting the machine to the underside of your counter top and pull the machine forward a few inches.
You should be able to do this without disconnecting water or power.
If the door spring is broken you will have to go to the appliance parts store in your area for another one.

How do I replace the oring gasket on a front loading samsung wash machine model number wf219anw/xaa


I can tell you how to fix one on the WF218ANW/XAA washer. Your model may be the same. You need to take the top panel off the washer by taking out two screws on back panel. You need to remove the control panel and place it on the top of the unit (it is attached with electrical cord). You need to talk out the detergent tray (press the clip in the middle). You then take off the front panel. it is not necessary to take off the door; however, to remove the panel you will need to remove the door latch mechanism on the inside of the door. To remove front panel, there are also two screws on the bottom of the unit. Once you have the front panel off, remove the old gasket by loosening the two springs rings. Pay attention to how the gasket is installed before removing. Replace gasket by installing inner portion first and replacing spring ring and tightening. Put all the parts back on the washer and install the outer portion of the gasket (with the spring ring). Samsung charges $130 to do this in my area and it's a pain in the neck.
