Wondering how to get the door panel off so i can replace the motor for the window

they sell a door panel tool , but i usually just use caution and a small flat screwdriver. locate any screws on the door panel ( usually there;s a few around the door handles, and possibly some near the armrests. ( take them out first) then remove the handles. use the screwdriver and gently push it behind the door panel and feel around for the door panel clips. they are generally button styled press in plastic pieces that can be worked loose by using leverage and the screwdriver,be carefull not to pull too had on the door panel Causing it to crack in half / But generally the door panel can take some abuse= the door clips will be in several spots around the door panel, ( they slip in the back of the door panel and pop into holes in the door) and normally pop loose easy.the trick is to get the plastic door panel clips to pop out of the door holes / not the door panel slots= reinstall in reverse order,

Need help to remove water pump on a kitchen aid washing machine kaws777

Hello Friend, It's easy to replace the pump on your machine. First, remove the two screws that hold control panel in place and tilt back exposing the two metal clips that hold the cabinet in place. You will see some wires plugged into the cabinet, just unplug them. There are two clips, one on each side. Just pop these clips off and lift cabinet slightly from back and tilt forward. At this point you will be able to completely remove the cabinet. Once you have cabinet removed just set it aside. Now, you can easily remove the pump by snapping off the two spring clips. The pump will slide right off the motor shaft. Happy to help, Tim.

How do I get the top to pop open? I thought you just stick a screw driver in and pop it up but its not working?

The old ones used to be like that but these newer models are built to remove the cabinet. How do they do it? They pop the control panelup and release clips holding the cabinet to the base then the case/cabinet is easily removed.

Model lat9557aae: how does the front of the cabinet reassemble - the clips (at the top) popped off, when I opened it, before i could see how they were oriented and anchored.

Go to and type in the model number you provided. Look under the "Cabinet" heading at item number 5. The clips should be placed in the openings at the top of the front panel as shown. It may take a little effort to reinsert them. This is a common problem sometimes when opening the top panel. I do not know how you opened the front panel, but for future reference, insert a putty knife at the point of the clips and push in to release the top panel. This may prevent them from coming loose. If the clips are damaged and you wish to order new ones, the part number is 22001650 and is sold as a set of two. If you have questions, or require additional assistance please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Cant get the back panel off the washing machine

If it is a top loading washer the cabinet itself is actually removed from the back panel and base frame.

1. Remove two trim caps on either side of the control panel, they are just plastic, and clip in place, either remove by hand, or if they don't come right away you can pop them off with a flat blade screwdriver.
2. Remove two screws (now visible with trim removal) that secure the panel to the cabinet.
3. Panel should now be able to pull up and out, flip it back on it's hinges.
4. Disconnect the wire harness from the lid switch connector, this should be the only place (on most models) where wires connect from the control panel to the cabinet top.
5. Remove the two gold clips that secure the cabinet to the rear panel of washer, they snap into the cabinet, and should pop out easily with a flat screwdriver, this can be difficult to figure out which way to go with the screwdriver, the best I can describe it would be to slide the blade of the screwdriver into the front of the clip (about 2 inches below the cabinet top) and then press the screwdriver back over the top of the clip for leverage. It should pop right out.
6. With the clips removed, you should now be able to simply tip the cabinet towards yourself and pull it right off of the frame. The washers "guts" should all be accessible now.
Hope that helps.
