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.
I hope this helps. Please let me knwo if I can assist you further.

Whirlpool dryer,model WED5300VW0 is snagging my clothes. How can this be fixed?


hello. You are going to need to inspect the bearing and front seal on the front of the drum, and also the bearing ring for front support. The rear of the drum is supported by two rollers underneath. First of all, here is a parts diagram for your dryer. On this first one, you can see the bearing ring for front support. Part number 36. It will need to be inspected for wear.
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5513301&diagram_id=28263302#d28263302

The next thing that I would inspect is the front bearing and seal, which is part number 38 in this diagram. It will need to be inspected also.
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5513301&diagram_id=28129401#d28129401

When these things are worn, it can cause the drum to drop slightly and snag your clothes. In order to take a look at these things, your going to have to know how to disassemble your dryer.
You do this as follows;

Pull your dryer out from the wall to avoid hitting the wall when you raise the cabinet top. Lift the lint screen access cover and remove the two screws inside. Do not remove the actual lint screen before you remove the screws. Removing the lint screen first could lead to accidentally dropping the screws down the lint screen shaft and into the blower wheel.
If your older Whirlpool clothes dryer model has a kickplate, remove it first. You can either pop it off, or pry the kickplate off the interior spring catches. Depending on your model, you may have to use a putty knife to push in on the spring catch at the center of the top of the kickplate. With the kickplate removed, proceed to lift the cabinet top.
Use a putty knife, or some other thin and flat object to wedge in under the cabinet top. Your goal is to push each of the two interior spring catches back out of the way, thereby releasing the cabinet top. The spring catches are located one on the left side under the cabinet top and one on the right side under the cabinet top.
Loosen the two bottom screws securing the front panel to the unit. Do not remove them just yet. Locate the two screws at the inside top of the cabinet. They also help to secure the front panel to the dryer unit. Remove these two screws. Balance the front panel as best you can as you remove the two bottom screws that you have just loosened. Disconnect the wire leads connected to the door switch. Hold the dryer drum in place and remove the front panel of your dryer. Some models may have extra screws holding the front panel in place. If you are having difficulty removing the front panel, do a check for more screws.
Reassembling the entire unit is basically the disassembly process in reverse. Reattach the front panel of the dryer in the same manner you took it off. Make sure you reattach the wire leads to the door switch, and replace all of the screws that were earlier removed.
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Drum-Slide-or-Glide/3406129/2702?modelNumber=WED5300VW0#repairHelpVideoTabs You will want to watch this. It will tell you how to replace the seal on the door.

http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Drum-Support-Bearing/279441/2683?modelNumber=WED5300VW0 this will show you how to replace the ring seal on the drum.

These are so detailed, I think it's all that you'll need to complete job. These whirlpool dryers are not hard to work on once you know how to do it.

I really hope this helps you. I hope that everything you need is covered here.

Thanks,

Mike

How can I replace the pump belt of a washing machine Sears Kenmore model #110.82671710 stock #26717


The Kenmore top load washing with the given model number 110.82671710 is a direct-drive type and doesn't have a pump belt. The pump is directly coupled to the rear spline of the motor.
jahn27_48.jpg

The cabinet needs to be removed if access to the drain pump and replacement is necessary. Remove the screws attaching the bottom front corner of the console to the top of the cabinet then pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.
jahn27_49.jpg
jahn27_50.jpg

Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing on the tab located in the middle and pulling it up.
jahn27_51.jpg

The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cabinet.
jahn27_52.jpg

Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the front and back of the base. Using the side of your leg and/or body as a support for the front of the cabinet, carefully lift up and set the cabinet aside.
jahn27_53.jpg

With the cabinet removed, pry the clips securing the pump to the motor off and remove the pump.
jahn27_54.jpg
jahn27_55.jpg

Detach the hoses from the drain pump and attach it to the new one then install it back into the rear spline of the motor and secure it with the retaining clips. Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine.

Reconnect the lid switch harness then push the retaining clips back down into position to secure the cabinet to the rear of the machine. Reinstall and secure the console to complete the repair.

I have a Kitchenaid washer model # KAWS750L, leaking at bottom


The most common leak in a KitchenAid washer is from the water pump. The easiest way to see is slightly tilt it up with a small load. If there are many clothes and water in the tub it will be to heavy. Get a light, and tilt the washer up a few inches. Prop it up with something even. Now, lay on the floor and as the washer is running watch for the water leak. The pump is at the front of the washer, directly in the middle. so it's only about 1-2 inches behind the front of the cabinet. I would be very surprised if it was anything but the pump.

The pump you will need is one of two. I've looked up your model number. After the KAWS750L there is either a Q or a T followed by a number. That letter and number make the difference. This pump can be bought for as low as $40 up to $70. It depends on the pump, and where you buy it from :)

Need to replace the extraction pump on a 1993 Kitchen Aid washer (M/N KAWE860W). Having trouble figuring out how to remove the front/side cabinet so I can get to the pump. Any suggestions?


When it was time for the spinning of the rinse cycle my machine just quit, no power, nothing. I checked the electrical connect, it's fine. It just seems that there is no power because it doesn't hum or anything. Thanking you, PJO

Whirlpool top load washer will not agitate or spin.


Hi, If the motor runs but the washer will not spin or agitate, you will need to change the coupler. Here are the instuctions
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.
How to replace a coupler:
Now that the cabinet is out of the way, remove the pump from the motor and set the pump off to the side. Remove the two screws holding the clips on the motor and remove the clips. Unplug the motor harness and on some models you will need to unplug the capacitor.
Now you will need to replace all three parts to the coupler. I use a ½” socket and a small hammer to force the coupler onto the motor and transmission shafts. Put the rubber part onto the coupler half on the transmission and then line up the post on the motor shaft with the holes on the rubber part and it should go on ok. Put the clips that hold the motor in place and plug in the harnesses.
Put the pump back on and the clips to hold it in place. Set the cabinet back on the frame. Make sure the lip on the front cabinet is under the front rail of the frame. Ease the cabinet on the frame making sure the two rear sides of the cabinet set down on the tabs of the frame.
Put the two clips back on that hold the cabinet and plug the lid switch back in. Fasten the control panel down and you are all set.

I need to repair my washing machine Model KAWE577BWH1


To remove the cabinet safely, the washing machine should be turned off and unplugged. Next take out the control panel by removing the screws. Also take out the spring clips which are situated in the corners and after doing that remove the harness that is connected to the lid switch wiring. Pull the lid and also keep a hand on the cabinet opening that shows itself when you open the lid. Furthermore adjust the cabinets position and then pull the lid and the cabinet opening. It should be removed now.

Washer leaking out water from the bottom


It sounds like you have a leaking pump. The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.

You have now replaced the washer pump.

Dryer marks clothes


it could be the adhesive that holds the felt bearings on the front housing. you see the back of the dryer drum has a bearing in its center, the front of the drum rotates on two or more felt pads or bearings in/on the front cover where your door is. you'll need to remove the front cover to replace these felt bearings. there should be two screws, maybe more holding the front cabinet to the rest of the dryer. the bearings will be mounted to the front cabinet right around the hole for the door.
