Remove the front of the washer to get at the water pump sav205daww

I have never messed with one of these with 2 front panels but it looks to me like you remove the 2 screws at bottom like the old series and get the toe kick off first. Then remove or back off some screws at the base of the front panel and then compress the top springs to release the panel. Here are some old school pix

Maytag washer repair

I had the repair guys out 3 months ago maytag paid for labor I paid $150 for seal and bearings, tub froze and belt broke. the tub now is making the loud screams that others complain about I contacted maytag and reapir servce and talked with the tech. this machine is a piece of S$%^ the seal fails on a regular basis and bearings get water in them. I just missed my 3 month waranty and will not pay for that repair again. people at home depot agree that this machine is trouble. the machine must be taken completely down from the top to replace the bearings and or the belt. the tub must be removed. If you call maytag they will pay for the labor but not the parts.
