I got the top off the washer, and now I cannot find any way to open the front panel of this top loading washer. It is the Atlantis MAV9750AWW.


Most don't have a front panel. Just top panel and rear panel.
Did you raise the top panel?
There are clips there that you have to find with a flat knife type tool.

How do you remove the front kick panel


Here are the steps.Hope this helps.
Insert a putty knife between the top of the kick plate and bottom of the front panel near the center of the washer, if you have an older model top load washer. Move the putty knife blade in and out in that area until you feel an obstruction. The obstruction is the kick plate retaining clip
Press the putty knife blade over the spring clip until you feel the clip disengage. Let go of the putty knife and grab both ends of the kick plate with your hands. Pull the kick plate away from the washer

ift the front of the washer with help from a friend, if you have a front load model Whirlpool. Slide a block of wood under the front of each side and gently lower the washer Remove the three hex head screws on the bottom edge of the washer kick plate with a Phillips-head screwdriver or nut driver. Pull the kick plate away from the washer.

TROUBLESHOOTING KENMORE ELITE HE3T FRONTLOAD WASHER WITH THE ERROR CODE F70


The F70 and F71 error codes on this model of washer indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board). These error codes can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait 1 minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally.

If the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit. I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.


Be sure your unit is plugged into a 3 prong grounded outlet as well.


F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.

Describe your Kenmore 24032 \ 24036 Top Load


Hi, Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.
If this is not your model, please let me know the model# so I can help you.

Can't get top off kenmore washer model # 110 22852 100


No problem. What you want to do is this, remove the screws from the back panel first to remove that metal plate protecting the wires. Once off you need to take off the two covers on the sides of the control panel. There is one on each side, just pop them off. Once off you will see there is a screw under there holding the control panel in place. Remove the screws and that will lean back. Next take a flat head screw driver and put it under the lip of the lid on the front of the washer. I mean the lip that is about an inch down from the top on the front. Pry up and the whole lid will pop up. You will see the lid switch there held in by a screw, follow the wire to where it plugs in and unplug it and replace with the new one. Let me know if you have any other questions and if this was helpful to you. Always happy to help and good luck.
