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

on the back of the washer are two spring clips fastened by hex head screws. remove the screws. Under the front of the top in each corner are spring clips. use a putty knife and locate the clips and press towards the back and lift that corner. it should come off. now do the same on the other corner. once the front is free, tilt the top up and pull up. the clips in back will release and you can rotate the top out of the way

### 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.

### Maytag washer will not agitate

A Maytag A412 is well over 20 years old....
Best guess is a corroded upper drive shaft, the one that the agitator is mounted on. Certainly it can be called a transmission problem.

### How to open top load washing machine for door switch repair

On some (older Maytag) machines the top is fastened with spring clips at the front corners and you can just pry the top up. It hinges along the back edge. On newer (Whirlpool) machines there are two screws at eh front bottom of the control panel. Remove them and lift and flip the control panel back. Then remove two large spring clips that hold the top to the back panel and lift the entire cabinet assemble off the base. Unplug the electrical connector between the cabinet top and control panel before lifting it off.

### 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.
