Question about Miele Washing Machines

What is the minimum space I need at each side of a W5873WPS washing machine (which is built into a cabinet)?

I am hopeful that a 615mm wide space (that is 650mm deep) is sufficient?

Is there a standard size for a kitchen countertop?

A linear foot is 12 inches wide and 25 inches deep because the standard depth of kitchen countertops is 25 inches.
The Americans with Disabilities Act Accessible Guidelines state that space at least 30 inches wide should be accessible, meaning that wheelchair users can roll up to the counter to perform tasks. The counter should be between 28 and 34 inches high and accommodate a minimum 27-inch knee clearance below the counter, sink or cabinet space. Anything beyond the first 16 inches of counter depth, from the front edge, is considered dead space for wheelchair users.

Can't get the back panel back on the whirlpool built kenmore top loading washing machine

I think you might have removed the back in error. This is a common mistake. Since you have the back off, you need to remove the cabinet as well to replace everything correctly. If you can attach the head to the back before pulling the cabinet away, this will save you some trouble later. Remove the head from the cabinet with the two screws on either side. Now pull forward, up and away. Now reattach the head to the back. The white or black hinges need to be inserted on the inside part of the panel, then onto the back side of the head. If they are still attached to the head itself, you need to remove them to get them onto the back first, then reattach to the head. This should leave the back and head as one unit and the cabinet should be another.

Now you can maneuver this back onto the slots that hold this piece in place on the bottom of the washer's base. There may or may not be screws down there where it attaches. Usually on the back of the base, there is a plastic stablizer that fits into the slot about one third of the way up the back panel. This will hold the back up to help get the cabinet back into place. If this is missing or broken, you will still be able to get the cabinet back on, it will be a little trickier tho.

Now you will see two little tabs on the base where they go into the front of the cabinet. There are two on the back of the base as well. You can straighten them with a small screw driver to make them perpendicular. Place the slots in the cabinet onto those tabs, then lower the cabinet onto the rear tabs. Pull the back panel towards you as you set the cabinet down, getting the strips on either side to align with the back and cabinet. Now reassemble anything that may be loose inside before lowering the head, such as hoses or electrical connections. Pull the head down, and set the 'hooks' into the top, and push back. Rescrew the head back onto the cabinet and you should be all set.

I hope this is sufficient for you to repair your machine correctly. If I've left anything out or it's unclear, I apologize but I think you should be ok :)

The machine will not agitate

Hi, The coupler has gone bad. This part connests the motor to the transmission. Here is the instructions on how to change the Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. There are two 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 wil 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 hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

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.

Kenmore Model 20722990 broken coupler

Stand it back up. Remove the end caps on the front of the control panel, (there is a screw under it). take out the 2 screws. The control panel will come forward then flip up. Next use a screwdriver to pop out the spring clamps that hold the cabinet onto the frame. They are about 3/4 of an inch wide and about 3 inches from each side. Disconnect the lid switch. Now you can tilt the cabinet away from the back of the machine, while tilting the bottom front of the cabinet will slide out and the cabinet can be set aside. now you will have access to the motor etc. Release the clamps holding the pump onto the motor. Now you should see two screws that hold the motor clamps, one above and one below the motor shaft, remove those. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pop off the clamps holding the motor. pull motor out to expose coupling. Make sure to use part # 285753A. repair sould take 10 minutes.
