Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I need to remove the Control Panel

The top three clips undo easily, but I can't see how to unclip the bottom three. I am worried about breaking it. I may need to replace the panel, as the start button is not working, but I'll still need to remove it. The manual did not offer any help. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: How to remove top panel and front facia on a Hotpoint Aquarius WDF451 washing machine

Un plug it. There should be small screws either at the bottom of the panel on the front or there is separate panel that comes off the top back. If the back is one solid piece top to bottom, then the control panel lifts out and hinges up when the two small cross tip screws are removed from the bottom outside corners of the control panel..

SOURCE: removing front panel from kenmore elite HE-3 front load washer?

If you've removed the screws and the panel sticks, tapping on each side will knock it loose. The panel should drop down, then off. You can also try propping the two front feet of the washer up slightly for better access. A 2x4 works real well. This will allow more room for the panel to drop and gives better access to the screws. The washer is very heavy, so you may need some assistance to lift the front. Either lift from the bottom, or place your hands on the front facing of the cabinet to push the washer back. DO NOT push on the door or control panel.

If you still need assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: I have a Maytag Neptune top load washer. When I

I’m and owner as you and will toss out this info.

The OD alarm means the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW Control Board has not sensed a lid open condition for three completed wash cycles. You can unplug the washer 120VAC power and plug back in and see if that will give you three more wash cycle before extending the OD alarm again. This would only be a temp fix. You have probably lost Lid is Closed/Lid is Open signaling back to the Control Board from the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly.

Take a look at this post and see if will help you repair the issue. I have some pic's and links in that post that may help. You will need the Service Manual for working on this machine.

I use external magnets over the left lid bumper to accurate the magnetic operated reed relay switch located in the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly to check for signaling operation of that magnetic reed relay back to the Control Board. I’m going to start out by having you check out the Magnet Reed Relay signaling from the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly.

With the Washer Lid open start a quick wash cycle, you should signal an OP alarm to the console do you? If so now close the washer lid the OP alarm should clear if the Lid Magnet is not out of position. If it doesn’t clear place couple magnets on the left bumper as I show in this post. If the OP alarm now clears then the lid magnet is out of position and the manual will show you its location to repair.

If you still trigger an OD alarm then it’s time to inspect the Left Lid Lock Plug and assembly for corrosion issues. See Page 34 of the Service Manual. The technicians thumb is on the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly. The Left Hand Lid Lock assembly is not a sealed very well and is subject to corrosion issues with its location near the bleach dispenser. If you are a DIY’er you won’t have any problem getting to the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly. The mating plug can be very difficult to remove from the assembly watch your knuckles. Be careful when you open the case halves of the Left Hand Lid lock assembly it is very easy to damage those retaining tabs. Unplug the 120VAC to your machine and follow the manual to raise the washer top from the base. If you have heavy corrosion issues you can clean up with contact cleaner ( I use WD-40) and some emery cloth/fine grit sandpaper. Check to see if the Black and Red wires are on the magnetic reed relay switch solder connections have not broken loose from corrosion. They can be re-soldered back on if they have broken loose. I don’t believe they have if you are not showing an OP alarm at the start of the wash cycle. You may want to squirt some WD-40 into the into the Left Hand Lid Lock plug and re-seat a few times if you have heavy corrosion in the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly as seen in the Pic.

If you use a DVM/Ohm meter to check the magnetic reed relay switch make sure you unseat/pull the Left Hand Lid Lock Plug from the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly to isolate the signaling leads going back to the Control Board, we don’t want to kill the Control Board with the Ohm Meter. I would only break out the DVM if I had to start troubleshooting signaling back thru the wiring harness to the control boart inputs and +12VDC output to the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly. The Control Board would have to be isolated fom the Ohm Meter measurements. I recommend not using a DVM/Ohm meter at this point of the troubleshooting process.

Here is a link for the Left Hand Lid Lock if you feel it would be easier to replace the assembly. Left Lid Lock Other suppliers will have the part I like these folks. Post back if you have additional questions.

SOURCE: Cabrio top load washer (WTW6600SB1)

Unplug the machine or disconnect power then remove the three hex-head mounting screws from the rear of the console. Tilt the console forward toward the front of the machine then disconnect the user interface board cable connector from the machine/motor control and lift the console off the cabinet.

Carefully pull the cycle selector knob off the shaft then turn the console on its face for access to the user interface control board. Unhook the wires from the clips then remove the three screws securing the board. Using a flat-blade screw driver, pry the cover's two locking tabs out then unclip and remove the cover from the console.

Lift the locking tab of the encoder then turn the encoder counterclockwise and lift and remove it. Carefully pry the font edge of the user interface board up then pull the board forward and remove it from the console. You may glue the broken part back in place or replace the console with part number W10070060.

How do I change the drivers side window motor on an 2007 suzuki xl-7?

I dont know this model specifically, but these are all pretty standard. You will have to get the door panel off, which usually begins with removing screws toward the center of the door ( usually by the handle ) then popping the door panel off by going clip by clip around the outside. You may break clips if you dont know what you are doing, but just buy new ones. No sweat.
Then, remove the plastic film covering the door ( dont tear it, cause you need it again) and find where the motor is screwed in. Undo the bolts holding the motor in, unclip the wires. Replace with new motor. Installation is reverse of removal.
