I've just taken the top off mine, unscrew the 2 screws at the back then push the front with the palms of your hands rearwards, it takes some doing and you may need to get your fingers underneath the lid at the back and just give it a good pull!!

I would suggest you check the brushes in the motor, as it sounds like they are worn out.
Replace them if they are less than 3 or 4 mm long
This would give you the symptoms you are describing.
Please rate my solution.

SOURCE: water coming out of drawer & door

Hi Gary,It sounds to me that you have a blockage within the pressure systemas this is a classic sign. If you take the top off the machine you will see a round switch with a few wires going to it.This is the pressure switch. at the bottom of this switch is a thin pipe,normally black or clear. there is a small spring clip holding this pipe to the switch, If you remove this pipe and gently blow down it you will probably find it is blocked. You will then need to follow this pipe to the bottom of your machine. At the bottom of the machine where this pipe is fitted you will see there is a chamber and it is this chamber likly to be blocked.Some times you may clear this with a small piece of wire by removing the small pipe and poke wire through, but best way is to see how this chamber is removed and remove it for cleaning.Ensure machine is off at mains. this chamber fills with water and causes air pressure within the switch at the top of machine, which in turn tells programe when machine is full and also when empty. If this fails then machine will not turn off water supply as long as it is on. there fore when you reconnect parts ensure they are tight and clips back in place. Good luck and hope this works. Failing this working you may need to call an engineer to check switch and possible fault on board.

How to lift the top off Whirlpool Estate washer

Actually you don't. you remove the 2 screws on the back of the control panel and you pull the control panel forward and up. Disconnect the wire harness,then you will see 2 clips. One on each side of the top. Use a screw driver to remove them and the whole body can be lifted towards the front and removed.

Hi I've got a bosch 36 vf li and I'm struggling to open it up to change brushes. I've undone all visible screws but still struggling with top part of unit.

Have you removed the 4 gearbox screws? the cover should lift off. sometimes if a brush holder has over heated then the two halves get stuck together in places.

How do I remove the cover of a delonghi ec270

Prise the back cover off with a flat head screw driver. Sides first, then ease top and bottom off. Remove two push in caps by gently squeezing out with a plier, align the groove to the same direction as plier. Locate two screws holding cover, unscrew, and off it comes.

Remove bobbin, presser foot, needle. Tip machine back on towel gently. Unscrew plate--don't lose screws! Do not service in presence of children and curious pets. Put foot pedal next to you on tabletop. Use Zoom Sewing Machine oil. Any part MOVING that are NOT gears get one drop oil. Any DRY ONLY gears get dab of Singer sewing machine lubricant. Replace screws. Secure screws. Open left front compartment & one drop oil @ top of needle bar. Open race shuttle (where bobbin case fits in). One-half drop oil of on oscillating hook (bottom left - hand corner...smear that oil around! Insert NEW needle all way UP in needle bar groove, flat needle shank toward back. Turn handwheel towards you and raise. Raise presser foot so that threading locates all tension slots a's you pull thread TAUT from spool to each tension slot and left to right through silver, metal take-up lever, and down to tension bracket, pass needle, then pull 6" thread towards you and thread from FRONT to BACK of needle. Place bobbin into case and "thread" it. Set presser foot on DOWN position. Turn handwh towards you, dipping needle into needle plate. Make loop with bobbin thread, pull towards you. Place a good 7" underneath presser foot (both threads). Let machine RUN on 24" scrap to distrubute oil/lube. That's it! Jimmy

Hoover HWD-20 how do I open/access the switch and motor section?

I\'ve discovered how to get the cover open.

There are four grey inserts on the top of the machine that are used to store the power cable. If you pull these up and out

(takes a bit of force) they reveal four small star screws that are somewhat difficult to access. They can be undone with a

small long handled hex nut though.

Once the screws are undone, lift the cover carefully because the switch is connected to the top. Carefully put your hand inside

the machine, having made sure the device is disconnected, and push the switch through and out the top. Then write down how the

wires are connected, red and blue on the "O" side and for the two black connectors first make a small notch with any device or

wrap some coloured tape around it etc so that you know which is which (Though technically it shouldn\'t matter). The crimp curl

overs point away from each other. Pull the crimp ends off.

There are then three slightly larger star screws to remove. You\'ve now access to the devices internals.

Do in reverse to re-assemble.

There isn\'t actually much one can do once inside the device, it\'s suprisingly well made with very little dust penetration even

after a lot of abuse. Other than the difficult to get to screws I\'m impressed with Hoover.

I have a sears 70 series top load washer and it will only wash. I can't get it to drain or spin the load that is in it now. I've tried to move the timer to a different segment and it will agitate...

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.The lid switch failed. Here is what it looks like Click . To access it you need to remove the cabinet. Here is how its done.
2. Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the two screws from each side of the rear corners of the console. NOTE: On some latest models there are no screws (big saving for Whirlpool). Instead there is a console clip on each side of the console which should be carefully released by inserting a putty knife under the console from the front on each side.
3. Pull the console forward and up to remove the tabs on the bottom of the end caps, out of the holes in the top.
4. Lift the console up and lay it on its back.
5. Unplug the harness connector for the lid switch.
6. Insert a flat screwdriver into the front edge of the clip (located on both sides), and pry back. Remove both clips from the holes in the cabinet and slide down the other end of the clips and out the slot in the rear panel.
7. Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening. Be sure when tilting the cabinet that the back edge clears the vacuum break.
8. Tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling on the lid and opening of the cabinet. This releases the back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the back of the base
9. Carefully pull the cabinet away from the base of the washer and set it aside.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..
