Just push them in the hole. They will compress - then expand.

How do I find out the cubic feet for Maytag washer model A412?


Calculate it yourself: Place a straight edge across the top of the unit. Measure the height from the bottom of the tub to the bottom of the straight edge. Then measure the width of the inside center of the tub and take half that number. Then use the formula below to calculate it. For example. Height 30 inches, Width 28 inches (half of 28 = 14).

V = (3.1416 x (14 x 14) x 30)/1728
= (3.1416 x 196 x 30)/1728
= 18498.48/1728
= 10.70 cubic feet.

How do you replace the front panel on a Maytag top loader washing machine?


If these are the clips i'm thinking of set the panel in place then grab the bottom of panel and stand up so that the panel is parallel to the floor. Apply pressure as you lower the bottom back down. The clips should slip into the slots, but sometimes it takes a couple of tries. When it's good you will know then replace bottom screws.


If this doesn't seem right give me the model number (the one on the machine) and we'll figure out what is right.

My washing machine feels level(doesn't wobble) but


I fastened my wife's washer to the wall with heavy wire inserted into 4 pieces of rubber attached to the wall and the wash machine. Rubber stoppers about one inch in diameter are held in place on the back of the washer about four inches below the top with copper pipe fasteners used to attach pipe to wood. These are on the back near each side and the ones on the wall are in matching locations. I used a 4" wide board on the wall so the screws could go into the studs and the stoppers could go where they were needed without concern about studs. The two pieces of heavy wire (not easily bent by hand) is bent into a U shape with a flat bottom and short legs. The width of the U depends on how far your machine is from the wall.The wire legs 2 - 4" long are then inserted down into the rubber with the bottom of the U upwards. Wherever you drill to attach the stoppers on the machine be sure to avoid any wires or mechanical components and I attached them near the top for ease of removal for maintenance-- which should be seldom. This solution has held my machine in place quietly for the last seven + years.

Remaval of top to Maytag Neptune Model mah3000aww washing machine


Remove the two screws on the door hinges and then remove the door from the slot that it is mounted to (sometimes this takes a little coaxing). Remove the two screws opposite the door hinges. Once this is done, the front panel comes off. Next, remove the four screws inside the dispenser on top of the washer. Now, locate the two bolts holding the top panel retainer clips in place. There will be one on each corner of the top panel in the front of the washer. Once the two bolts are removed, the retainer clips can be removed and the top lifts up. I hope this helps you. Please post back if you have any further comments/questions.
