Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
Need to replace the door latch assembly ($41 part) on our Neptune front
loader (MAH550BWW). How do you open the top on this washer? Removed
obvious screws for "hinges" in rear, removed top display that holds
computer board. Can't figure out what is still holding the top lid on.
Any assistance is appreciated.
You have to remove the door and the front panel to get to two bolts holding the top on.

You need to remove the door hinges and the screws opposite the hinges. that will allow you to remove the front panel and the you will see the latch and the top hold down screws. once you have the top up, then you will also need to remove 2 screws that hold the latch to the upper frame. it is hard to pivot the latch out from the frame but it will come out and then you can replace the assembly.
by the way.. why are you wanting to replace the latch?? any failure codes? you might also have to replace the control board as it will fail when the door latch shorts out.
if you look at the control board you might see some of the resistors that have burnt out/ shorted out. sorry but it happens alot.
if it is less then 5 years old, then you might get it fixed under warranty for free part.
