Can't remove end caps from Whirlpool Model GST9679PG1 top loader

The console has two end caps that look like there are removable. There is a screw on the back side that looks like it needs to be removed before the end cap will release. However, the top of the screw is not completely exposed. It looks like the screw pushed in plastic tab, broke it and now part of the tab is resting on top of the screw head.

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.

Need to take the top off to change the switch that allows the machine to start.


If this is a Kenmore top loader and you are referring to the LID SWITCH, the follow link explains step-by-step how to replace one:

If you are referring to the TIMER, you need to open the operator console. This is accomplished in several different ways depending on the model washer:

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.

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. The timer can be accessed by removing the control knob on the front panel and removing the mounting screws. Once the mounting screws have been removed, you can postion the timer to unplug the electrical connections easier.

If you require additional assistance, please post back with your complete model number (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid) so that I may be able to determine how your washer is configured. I hope this helps you.

How to take back & top off washing machine


If this is a Whirlpool TOP LOADER, the back of the washer is not designed to come off. These washers 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.

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. Reinsert the brass clips by placing the clips into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push then down into the opening on top of the washer.

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.


If this is a Whirlpool FRONT LOADER, the top comes off by removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.

The rear of the washer will come off by removing the series of screws around the perimeter of the back panel.

Read through everything thoroughly before beginning any repairs. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please post back with your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the tub opening - top loader, around the door opening - front loader) so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Replacing lid switch


someone, Im not finding that model number. Going by the first six digits Im assuming that this is a regular top loader and not an Oasis washer. If so, remove the end caps on the consol by pulling them off. Remove the screws under each end cap and flip the consol up. Unplug the lid switch connector and snap springs holding the cabinet on. The whole cabinet will pull forward and you can get at the lid switch. Check out the pics and post back...Catriver.
