How do i open the top of a top loading washer

IF you are standing in front of the washer, there should be a slot in the front top center of the machine. Just reach your fingers in there and prop the lid up. If it is locked, try cycling the washer through a load until it is completed and releases the lock.
If you are referring to the entire deck lid, and need to open the machine up, use a butterknife on the front end seam where it clips into the washer and lift up. pressure clips. there may also be two screws in the rear that need to be removed, but you can just pry the front open, and it will lift up, giving you access..

I got the top off the washer, and now I cannot find any way to open the front panel of this top loading washer. It is the Atlantis MAV9750AWW.

Most don't have a front panel. Just top panel and rear panel.
Did you raise the top panel?
There are clips there that you have to find with a flat knife type tool.

Have a Hotpoint 6 cycle HD washer. I need to open the top in order to clean.

Most front load washers have 3 screws on the top, back edge of the lid. Remove these 3 screws, slide the top back about 1 inch, and lift the top off. If you could post the model number off of the machine, I will be able to help you further.

Regards, Rick

Whirlpool Front Load - Code F 32 - Cannot open door

F32 is the code for Pressure Switch Failure. Which is only found on a tech computer. Remove the top panel from the washer by removing the three screws in the top back of the washer. Inside the back right corner is a round plastic box, either black or white, that is the pressure switch box. Check to make sure all the quick connect wires are connected and tight. Unplug washer to reset it. If the cycle fails still with the F32, you'll need to get a new Pressure switch box. If that doesn't fix it then it could be the control box( the bigger rectangular box in the front right that the wires connect to.) Good Luck and Happy Washing

How does the top come off ge washer model wjxr2080t6ww

Use a putty knife to push the spring clips in where the top of the front panel meets the washer top, about 2 or 3 inches in from each side. Front panel pulls forward and lifts off pegs, revealing two 1/4 inch drive hex screws holding top to side panels. If your washer has the lid switch near the front, push the tab on the back side toward the center of the switch and push switch up, then twist 90 degrees and pass switch back through the opening. Now lift washer top at the front side. Most washer tops will unhook from the back side now, but some need to be slid an inch to the side yet to remove once the top is lifted a few inches. If you model still has the lid switch near the back of the washer opening, lift the top at the front and unhook the back of the washer top, pull the top forward a few inches and unplug the lid switch disconnect block. (two wires)
