Some will just fall right back into place then there are those like yours that well, prayer never hurts.

I always open the top so I can see what I'm doing.

The cabinet should be leaned back about 45 degrees so the front lip goes under the front of the washer frame. Keep it at a 45 angle while you push it forward with your foot. The front of the washer frame must be off the floor at least 2-3 inches. Some that have the legs run all the way up will require raising either with the legs or a piece of wood.

Once you have the front of the cabinet under the washer frame, hold pressure with your foot and lower the cabnet down on the frame. The back of the frame has a metal *** sticking up that must go in the slot on the cabinet. Some times it will require doing one side at a time to get them in place.

At this point you should be able to push the back panel back into place. Sometimes one side at a time, sometimes I will go ahead and push one side in and put the bracket in then do the other side.

Hope this helps. I'll be pray'n for you.

How do the clips go back in the back of the washing machine model


If you are referring to the brass colored clips, follow these steps:

1. With the lid of the washer casing open, grasp the case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame base in the front.

2. Lower the washer casing back onto the side frames. Make sure the small cleats on the side frames fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.

3. Make sure the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side by leaning over the front of the washer and grasping the back panel and pull towards you to seat it.


4. Reinsert the brass clips. Place the 90 degree bend of the clip into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push the J-hook end of the clip down into the opening on top of the washer. NOTE: Once the clips are snapped back into place, the washer case should fit tight and not move on the frame.

5. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.

6. Reinstall console.


I mention all these steps to ensure you have the washer case back on the frame correctly, and the back panel is seated as well. If not, the clips will not insert properly and the washer will rattle during the spin cycle. Step 4 refers to how to correctly install the brass clips. Remember to insert the 90 degree end of the clip into the BACK panel slot first. Then, push the J-hook end of the clip down in the opening on the top of the washer. You may have to use a little force. Once it snaps back into place the washer case should fit snug. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hop this helps you.

Tip

Washer Case Removal for Whirlpool Top Loaders


To access the interior components on Whirlpool manufactured top loading washers, you must remove the exterior washer casing. The follow steps, explain how:

1. Unplug washing machine.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in a few different ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer. The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer. There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.

b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up. There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.


c. Some consoles have a series of screws located in the back. Simply loosen the screws to release the console.

3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer to its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Under the console will be two large brass colored clips. Take a large flat blade screwdriver and place it in the groove of the clip on the washer top. With the screwdriver firmly in the groove, push away from you towards the back of the washer. This will release the clips.

5. Disconnect the lid switch connector plug. This is the white colored plug on the washer top under the console.

6. Remove the washer casing. Open the lid of the washer. Using one hand, grip under the front rim of the washer opening. Do not grab the wash tub, just the casing. Tilt the washer case from the back first towards you, slide forward slightly, and then lift up. The entire case comes off exposing the wash tub and components.


IMPORTANT: To correctly reinstall the washer case, follow these steps:

1. With the lid of the washer casing open, grasp the case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame base in the front.

2. Lower the washer casing back onto the side frames. Make sure the small cleats on the side frames fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.

3. Make sure the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side by leaning over the front of the washer and grasping the back panel and pull towards you to seat it.


4. Reinsert the brass clips. Place the 90 degree bend of the clip into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push the J-hook end of the clip down into the opening on top of the washer. NOTE: Once the clips are snapped back into place, the washer case should fit tight and not move on the frame.

5. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.

6. Reinstall console.


These procedures are much easier than they appear. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this information is helpful.

NOTE: Whirlpool manufactured top loaders include Kenmore, Roper, Estate, Frigidaire, Kitchenaid, Kelvinator and some later model Maytags.

1. First, make sure you have the washer casing seated correctly on the frame. With the lid of the washer open, place grasp case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame and rocked back onto the frame to ensure that the small cleats on the frame fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.

2. Make sure the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side by leaning over the front of the washer and grasping the back panel and pull towards you.

3. Reinsert the brass clips by placing the 90 degree bend of the clip into the slot on the back of the washer first. With the clip inserted on the back panel, forcefully push the J-hook end of the clip down into the opening on top of the washer. The clip should snap back into place and the washer casing should fit tight against the back panel and frame.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Each clip has a 90 degree bend at one end, and a j-hook end at the other. The 90 degree bend fits into the back panel slot, the j-hook fits into the top panel. Make sure the clip is properly oriented, or it won't fit properly.

These washers are not designed to have the back panel removed. They are designed to have the entire cabinet come off in one piece. Its a failrly simple procedure. Just follow these steps:

1. Unplug washing machine.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer. The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer. There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.

b. If the console
does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up. There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.

3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Under the console will be two large brass colored clips. Take a large flat blade screwdriver and place it in the groove of the clip on the washer top. With the screwdriver firmly in the groove, push away from you towards the back of the washer. This will release the clips.

5. Disconnect the lid switch connector plug. This is the white colored plug on the washer top under the console.

6. Remove the washer casing. Open the lid of the washer. Using one hand, grip under the front rim of the washer opening. Do not grab the wash tub, just the casing. Tilt the washer case from the back first towards you, slide forward slightly, and then lift up. The entire case comes off exposing the wash tub and components.


To reinstall the washer casing, follow these steps to ensure you get the case correctly placed and secure on the frame:

1. With the lid of the washer open, grasp the case under the front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame and rocked back onto the frame to ensure that the small cleats on the frame fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.

3. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.

4. Reinstall console.


NOTE: o reinstall the back panel correctly you will need to pop the case loose from the frame and reinstall. That's why I included all these steps.

Read through everything thoroughly. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this information is helpful.

5. Disconnect the lid switch connector plug. This is the white colored plug on the washer top under the console.

Need to know how to put shell back on washer


If this is a Whirlpool top-loader, follow these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening of the case, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, and then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle BEFORE you reassemble the console. This is easy to forget.

Let me know if you still have questions. I hope this helps you.
