How do you open the top of the MVWC400XW0 machine? It is leaking water inside of the washer and I need to see where it is coming from.

It is coming from the water valve because you have grit in your water. To open the top you remove the two screws, one one each side of the hinge in the back. it is the top screws the slide the top forward and then you can lift it. Sometimes you have to jig it back and forth but it will come up.

My westinghouse leaks water. It's 16 years old, so if it's some major problem I'm ok with it and I'll get a new clothes washer. On the other hand I would like to open up the washer and

The back and sides are one piece. The front comes off (two clips under top, one on each side about 2 or 3" in from outside - two screws on bottom directly below clips). The top will lift up on the rear hinges, the front lifts about 0.5" and comes off.

How do i open the top of my machine?

I do not have the correct model number from the manufactures plate located on the washer, so I cannot look at the exploded parts view of you unit. I have indicated the procedure used on most top load washers which may work. You should use caution because it may not be the same style but you may be able to loosen or remove the screws from the back of the hinges to lift the top. If you can give me the correct model number I may be able to look at the diagram to give you more Ideas if this does not work.

You have clips on each side of top cabinet located in the front of the unit. If you pull the top forward and lift up you should be able free the top cover enabling you to lift the top back on its hinges. You may also use a non marring tool (wood or plastic wedge) to pry the top off while pulling the top forward. If it will not lift or you are afraid that you may damage the unit you can loosen or remove the two screws (part 34) for the hinge (part 32) in the back of the unit. You should be able to move the top forward and lift it above the retaining clips. You can replace the hinge screws so you can lift the top back on its hinge so it will not fall off when working on the unit.

Washer shaking, making loud noise and leaking water

Sounds like a tub support could be defective causing excessive tub movement splashing water outside the washer. Try to move the tub by hand and see if it is firm and snaps back to its center position. If the tub is loose, lift the top cover off by using a non marring tool to pry the front up and lift the cover back on the hinges. Inspect the tub supports for broken or worn rubber shock absorbers. Look at both the tub support shafts and the corner stabilizer attached to the frame and the outer tub. You may need to inspect the fill hose and the water injector to see if it is loose or cracked.

Washer is leaking where the water comes out to fill it

You will need to lift the top cover from the front of the washer and lift it back on the hinges. Look where the water is injected into the tub you should see the water injection hose attached to the plastic injector with a hose clamp. Inspect the hose and injector for any leaks or if the plastic inlet is broken. The upper water injector is around $5.00 and is an easy fix. If the hose is cracked, a new hose is around $4.00. If you prefer you can replace the injector assembly for about $23.00.

My machine is leaking from the bottom of the machine. Hoses in the back are ok. but i'm afraid to run it

you will have to open the top of the washer.

take a flat head screwdriver and place it at the seam area around the washing machines rim, the front should lift up from some clips that hold it down, look down inside for any corroded hoses or signs of water leaking from pressed hose fittings.

if there is no leak signs at top of washer then you may have to take the back cover off and look at the bottom for signs of water stains or corrosion.

replace hose if tightning it doesn't work. run the washer with panel off so you can spot leaks.

Admiral Leaking

Possibly rinsing with cold water, washing with hot.
Check inlet valves for leaks, especially cold (rinse)
Lift the top panel by inserting a flat blade approx 4" from each side at the front to release clips, then top will hinge backwards.
You can see the valves at the rear behind the drum..
You can run the machine with top lifted to see any more leaks.
Also remove front panel via 2 small screws to gain better view.

Amana NTW5245TQ1 Topload washer....water draining out from basket...

Unfortuneately, I think you have two seperate problems. Fortuneately, this is easy to verify. As far as the not spinning, it is generally caused by loose hinge screws on the lid. There is a arm that sticks off the back of the hinge to press on your lid switch. If the screws are loose, the arm generally wont be able to press the switch. Just tightening ther screws on the right and left hand sides of the lid corrects this. You can verify this has corrected the problem by setting the washer to spin without adding any water. As far as the leaking. Well, there are multiple sources for this, but the most common is the water pump. To verify this, unplug your unit and pull it out from the wall. Tilt the top of the washer back towards the wall until it rests by itself at about a 45 degree angle. You are looking for a white peice of plastic towards the bottom front of the machine. There will be 2 black hoses going into it. run your finger across the front side of it feeling for bumps. You may have had something get lodged in there and poke a hole. If you can not find any moisture on the pump (yes it can leak from the hoses of back of the pump also)look for any signs of water having leaked. (you generally get water spots just like in your dishwasher when you don't use a rinse agent). If you still can't see anything, tilt the unit back forward and add 1 cup of water to the machine. Tilt it back again and see if it's leaking. Continue adding water until you can get your leak then trace the water back. However, if you do in fact have a bad pump, they are availible from local appliance parts suppliers (in the phone book) or on-line from the maunufacture. Any troubles or other problems? Drop me a line back. Otherwise,
