Hi, Remove the two screws holding the front panel to the cabinet. The screws are in the slanted part if the front panel.
After the [anel is removed, locate the two 3/8" screws in the upper corners holding the top to the cabinet. The top will raise up. I hope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Maytag A511 washer tub vibration

The tub should not become unbalanced over time. There suspension springs may wear unevenly, however. Replace all of the suspension springs and it should be fine.

Maytag A511 has worked faithfully for 26 years.

Either the engine or the drum bearing are worn out and the rotor/drum is touching the stator/tub. It's normal wear and since replacement parts are no longer fabricated i think it's time to buy a new one.

Model A511 washer Agitator is not moving as vigorously as it used to. Removed front and found excessive oil residue in the bottom. Repair or buy ?

excessive oil . is usualy found under the machine / if inside / on side's of shell this could be water seal leakage . the 511 is a very good machine but its also very old . . agit problem is usualy in the belts and motor roller base . /try cleaning the pulleys and replace belt set / 2011124 and 2011125 / put a roller base set w springs . this will perk it up ,,use info on belt package for belt adjustment. they run loose. ( do not over tighten .)

It is your water pump. If you don't know what you are doing it could be tough.

Hi, i removed the front panel on my maytag i cant get it back on. I can't see how the top clips work.

the top clips are hanging type.. start with the top clips below there respective recesses in the units top, then tilt the bottom of the front out till it gets to about a 35-45degree angle and the clips should hook onto the top panel and then allow you to swing it shut and replace the 2 screws at the bottom..
hope this helps,
best of luck,

Belt squeek during rinse cycle

Mine the same concern, I took it apart and found the thermo fuse in the motor had a bad terminal. Maytag parts man said you must get a new motor even though the fuse has a part # on it and is easy to change. I made temporary repairs until I find a fuse from a used parts machine. Scott
