In the front ,in the seam, with a flash light, on each side aproximently 4" from each side, you will need a putty knife or thin screwdriver to push inward, two clips , best one at a time with screw driver hold that side up then do second, then raise lid.

hope this helps

Whirlpool WTW5300VW2 washer hot water pipes shake during fill


Good day,
The only test on the water valve itself, is to replace it. The term is
"replace with a know good part", but may or may not work.
It is very possible you mght need a plumber to install a riser on the hot water line somewhere betwen the tank and the line going into the washer. The riser creates an air cushion in the line that is used on many issues much as you described.
It could well be best to call a few quality plumbing companies, to see if they have dealt with that issue.

Top Load Ultimate Care 2 Just below the lid in


This problem is commonly caused by a water inlet valve (also known as a mixing valve) leaking by. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, sediment, rust or calcified deposits can accumulate in the inlet valve and cause it not to close properly. Usually when they start leaking, you need to replace them. The following link explains how to access and replace the valve:

If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement valve is 285805.

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

Leaking water


When your Maytag top load washing machine leaks water, you will need to check the following parts until you find where the leak is coming from.




The water valve: The first place you need to check is behind the washer. Check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.
Check for pinholes or cracks on the plastic body of water mixing valve.



Remove the front panel : The next thing you need to do, is to remove the front panel so you could see the tub and the hoses.
Set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on so it could start filling.
Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling.
Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.


The pump : If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag washing machine to leak water.


The stem & seal : Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank.
When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water will leak down the center of the transmission.
When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110.

I have a Whirlpool top loading washer Model # LSR8233EQ0 that the water mixing valve needs to be replaced. How do you get to that valve? Do you remove the back of the machine or go from the front?


Do not remove the back.Take 2 screws off front ends of console and pull slightly forward and flip it up- it is hinged on the backPop off two spring clips that engage cabinet. Unplug lid switch wire. Tilt cabinet forward and the whole thing comes off. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

Washer leaks on on the floor when using a large load setting.


The leaks in a washing machine could be coming from many different places in the washer.

The first place you need to check is behind the washer, check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.

The next thing to do is to remove the front panel, set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on to start filling.

Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling. Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.

If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag top load washing machine water leaks.

Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank. When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water leaks down the center of the transmission.

When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110
