Easy as pie
First remove the top panel as it will make life easier.. there are 3 screws at the back sometimes you'll find that they only put 2 on. slide it back and it will come off

The remove the soap draw and you will see 4 screws remove them and pull back the front panel from the draw side and it will come off. You have some wires connected to it they are all numbered if you look closey.

Remove them if you wish to . (p.s. the control know will just fall out when you pull the panel off, there are no other screws)

Now the front panel is easy too you will c when you look at the top side of the panel there are three screws holding it in place remove them

there are three screws at the bottom of the panel behind the kick plate at the bottom of the machine.. Remove kick plate to access them.

Alos you have to remove the ring around the door rubber and the 2 screws holding the doorinterlock in place. Thats it. Ive done hundreds of these machines and they are easy as pie.. hey presto you can now pull of the panel.

Please please rate if this solution helps cheers

Big job.
The top comes open with a small screwdriver, or better yet a putty knife slipped to the right and left front corners and pried up. You have a plastic clip on either side of the front top which will snap open when pried.
Then, the front of the machine is usually held on with two screws that are inserted into the top front from the top sides, one screw in each side.
The bottom is easier, once the top screws are out, you lift the whole front panel off.
Down at the bottom of the front panel are two clips that go in two holes to hold the panel on.
You will also be unplugging the wire connector to the door switch.
We also had this happen, and if turning your clothes inside out or tying the strings doesn't work, we found to put such items inside a mesh "unmentionables/undergarments" bag stopped the problem.
Be blessed.

I did a load and then when turning the tub inside to see if a sock was stuck to the side, I heard something clunking around. it sounds like its between the tub layers. My handy husband Is trying to get the...


I don't know what machine you have but some have clips you can push back with a putty knife or flat screwdriver just put the putty knife in the crack at the top of the front panel & slid it over till you hit something that will most likely be the clip push it in. Some have screws 2 at the bottom take them out & pull out on the bottom that will let the clip come out at the top. I would check for the screws first. Some have 2 front panels the bottom has clips you might be able to just pull out on the bottom panel at the top or use a screw driver to pry out. then check or screws at the bottom of the top panel. I hope this helps these are some machines there may be others. Good luck

My boosh dishwasher is stuck in rinse and wont drain, but when i press cancel on the washer the water drains.... whats causing this????


There is a chronic problem with Bosch dishwashers where the heater relay is soldered to the printed circuit board becomes loose (actually it seems like the solder just disappears from the connection).
You may also note that the timer seems to get stuck and will not advance.
Remove the top front panel, the circuit board is on the right side as you face the dishwasher. You need to re-solder the heater relay terminal.

Probably a control panel error


The F70 and F71 error codes on this model of washer indicates a communication problem between the user interface control board and the central control unit (main control board). These error codes can sometimes be caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines. Try unplugging the washer to completely disconnect electrical power. Wait 1 minute and then plug the washer back in to the see if the fault code clears. If it does, then the washer may work normally.

If the code reappears, then you could have a wire harness connection problem, a failed user interface control board or a failed central control unit. I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair this type of problem so that the correct component can be replaced.


Be sure your unit is plugged into a 3 prong grounded outlet as well.


F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.

Motor Control Board test.


If you open the front door, you will see four screws along the inside seam. 2 where the door hinges are and 2 on the opposite side. I assume you already found the cheat sheet at the inside back of the controller. So, I'll defer to the cheat sheet for proper troubleshooting procedures... Hope this helps... Bill

Water wont drain /wont spin out


  • assuming it is a top loader
  • it sounds like something is stuck in the water pump.
  •  if the water does not drain then it will never spin.
  •  take off the front panel (with a butter knife, push in the two metal clips in the front seam between the top panel and the front panel. this will release the front panel from the machine. 
  • the water pump is located on the right side in the front. 
  • before removing the hoses attached to the water pump get as much water out of the machine as possible so it does not spill on the floor.
  •  then take off the hoses and check inside the pump thoroughly; even a string might cause the pump to get stuck.
  • let me know if you need more help

Speed Queen Top Loader heavy duty washer


First unplug the machine, now take off the front panel, two screws at the bottom of the front panel, front panel swings up and off.

check to make sure the six springs are still in place.

Under the tub is bearing housing between the tub and base usually white in color, under this is a plastic ring, does it seem to float easily when you move the tub. it could be broken. Also look around for loose or missing screws.

If all seems fine, make sure you have all four rubber feet on, level machine, in the front first side to side, then pull machine toward you to bring rear legs off floor, these are self leveling, have someone assist and make sure they are not stuck, use a pliers and break loose if they are. So with the machine on its front feet and the back feet off the ground set the machine down on all four feet check level front to back adjust as needed on the front legs. You should reset rear legs as you adjust the front. now with machine level tight the nut between the front legs and the base locking them.

This should help, if machine still shakes it could be the balance ring, has lost if solution its filled with a salt water solution, the hard part is you need to find it under the tub cover. we will go into the detail if we need to. ask more questions later

Hoover ultracare 1500 not emptying


Suggestion: First plug off the wall. Remove the back panel of the machine. Check to see it the thin tube going from the top control panel to the exit side below the machine is block free. To check disconnect this from the top and blow into it. It should not blocked, refit. This is the water level control. Secondly check out your pump.
