The best tool for getting the top off of a Cabrio, Oasis, or Bravos washer of this type is a putty knife. There are two spring clips located about 4.5 inches in from the corners that you depress with the putty knife through the seam in the front. The trick is that there are two plastic posts with ribs next to the clips that will impede your lifting of the top- so you have to get one side's clip to let the top up about 1/4 of an inch, then brace it with a screwdriver while putty knifing the other clip. Eventually, awkwardly, whispering expletives under your breath, you will get the lid up.... Now for the fun of troubleshooting that thing!

I would like to know how to take the cover off of my Roper RAX7244KQ Washer. I have 2 clips that came out of the balance ring that need replacing. Thank you for your time in this matter!

2. Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the two screws from each rear corner of the console in the back
NOTE: On some latest models there are no screws (big saving for Whirlpool). Instead there is a console clip on each side of the console which should be carefully released by inserting a putty knife under the console from the front on each side.
3. Pull the console forward and up to remove the tabs on the bottom of the end caps, out of the holes in the top.
4. Lift the console up and lay it on its back.
5. Unplug the harness connector for the lid switch.
6. Insert a flat screwdriver into the front edge of the clip (located on both sides), and pry back. Remove both clips from the holes in the cabinet and slide down the other end of the clips and out the slot in the rear panel.
7. Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening. Be sure when tilting the cabinet that the back edge clears the vacuum break.
8. Tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling on the lid and opening of the cabinet. This releases the back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the back of the base
9. Carefully pull the cabinet away from the base of the washer and set it aside.

Kenmore 400 washer, model 110-29422 801: How do I get at the attachments for the electrical power cord - my puppy chewed it in half, and I must replace it. Do I remove the top, or the back, and how,...

Use a putty knife at the base of the control console about 2 inches in from the right and left sides.
Lay the putty knife flat on the top of the washer and push it in under the front corner of the control console to depress the clips on the right and left side.
Then fold the control console panel towards the rear of the washer.
Then you can see the cord and how it attaches.
The cord part number is 285800 and cost about $30.00.

How to remove the control panel on a whirlpool washing machine

If this is a TOP LOADER, the operator console comes of in various different ways:

1. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer. The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer. There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.

2. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up. There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.

3. On some consoles there will be a screw located in the rear on each end that you need to remove in order the lift the console.

Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

If this is a FRONT LOADER, the console is removed in the following way:

1. Unplug the washer.

2. Remove the washer top panel by removing the three torx-type screws (or 7mm) where it attaches in the rear of the washer. The panel should slide back, and then lift off.

3. Remove the operator console2.gif by removing the dispenser and the scew(s) behind it. Take a putty knife and insert it under the console seam right above the door. If you push in slightly while pulling outwards the panel pops off. Use care not to pull or damage any of the wiring. You can leave the wires attached and simply lay the console across the top of the washer out of the way.

If you have any questions, or need further assistance, please let me know. please include a model number so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance.

I hope this helps you.

I can't get to the timer to replace it Kenmore110.24982300

Disconnect the power. There are two clips to release, one at each front corner of the control console. Use a putty knife, push it between the machine top and the console in from the corner about 3/4". Push firmly but carefully. you will feel the clip pressure. Push slightly and it will release and the corner of the console will be free to lift slightly. Repeat at the other corner. With both clips released you can roll the console over the back to have working room to change the timer. The timer control knob has to be released from the back side of the timer. Look in the center of the timer from the back side and you will see that the stem on the timer switch is held in a groove by the timer case. Release the stem from the timer case and pull out to the front.

To access the lid switch, REMOVE POWER, lift the console by one of three ways.
1. Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward.
2. The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
3. insert a putty knife under each corner, push to release a latch. With console lifted:

1. You will find a lid switch connector (white or gray in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.
