Question about Washing Machines
I don't know how to dismount the upper panel of this washing machine. I've unscrewed two screws from the back side and I can get it up a few centimeters, but I can't find how it is attached in the front part. Any idea? Thanks in advance.

This happend to me once, and it was in relation to a blocked intake filter.
- Check that the intake houses are not cloged and the small filter under neath is clean (Use an old tooth brash)
- Also check the opening on the front bottom left of the machine. (Open with a flat head screw driver)
. My one had coins in it. Note: drain with the small pipe into a backet so when you open it you don't have watter everywere.

Remove the top of the machine by unscrewing the two screws on the upper back of the machine. Once you do this, you will see the electrical wires for the control panel. DON'T UNDO ANYTHING. It will appear you might have to in order to take off the front panel, but you won't.
2. Next, take the two-by-four or some paint cans and place them under the front of the machine to help prop it up so you can unscrew the four bottom screws from the front panel. It's not going to come off just by doing that, so you have to take out the detergent tray, where you'll then see two screws inside the tray crevice and you'll have to take them out. Set those two aside elsewhere--they are longer than the other screws and you'll want to make sure you put them back in the right place. On the top front edge of the washer's control panel there should be two screws on either side securing the plastic control panel to the front of the washer. Unscrew those. You should now see the remaining screws holding the front panel on. Unscrew those as well.
3. Next, open the front door of the washer and you'll see a little grey set of plugs that look sort of like USB ports on the right-hand side. There are two screws holding it on--undo those. You should now be able to pull the front panel out just enough to reach that screw-clamp in the front to unscrew it. Once you do, go ahead and replace all the screws and parts of the front and top you've undone. You'll want to do that before you proceed to taking out the pump and cleaning it, so that you can remember how to do it more easily.
The front panel will not completely remove due to the gasket around the window, but it WILL allow you to get into the front assembly area more easily.
