Dismounting upper panel of washing machine

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.

    Thank everyone for your help. You rock, guys. The problem is already solved. There were two long screws from the back to the front that I didn't think were related with the opening of the upper panel. Now that I have got access to the inner, my problem is another one. I'll post it in a new thread.

SOURCE: error on Westinghouse mastermind 708 front loader washing machine

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.

SOURCE: how do i get the front panel off?

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.

2005 gmc yukon blower motor keeps running after ignition is turned off


This problem is caused by a defective blower motor speed control module aka blower motor resistor.
The blower motor resistor is right under the passenger side glove box, next to the blower. You need to unscrew two box screws to dismount the right hand insulation panel, then you will see the resistor pad - little bit inside up. Unscrew two box screws then the pad will come off, unplug the power from blower motor and the seven pin plug from resistor pad. Installation reverse way

Have a honda accord. 98. power locks not working. or key locks all doors from outside. windows work but only from the door that its on. drivers door will not operate others. but the window lock dose work.?...


Yes, the driver´s door has the master switch for everything. No need to dismount the door panel. Look inside the door grab rail ( which is part of the window switch subpanel)and there is a tiny black plastic cover that hides a single phillips screw. Lift the cosmetic screw cover with a tiny flat screwdriver, there is a slot to insert the screwdriver, to lift it. PARTIALLY, just enough to see the screw.Unscrew it, and the whole subpanel comes out, pulling upwards. The screw plastic cover is very frail, and has a slave strip that attaches it to the bottom, when unscrewing, be very careful not to break it. The subpanel itself has 2 or 3 connectors to handle window / window lock and remote mirror duties. Check that all connectors are plugged in firmly. If they all were attached to begin with, check that the contacts have not rusted.
