That's easy, just remove the Calypso Logo on the front of the machine, then there is a screw you need to remove. Then slide the top forward, then lift it up. Have someone else hold it up, and remove 4 screws on the top of the front panel, then lift it up about an inch and remove away. Putting it back on, try to get the latches back on correctly on the lower right and left, or it will stick out and look funny.

Water runs out underneath.

Pump is usually on bottom of machine towards the rear. Remove front panel or the back of machine. I think front is easier?

No power

You have this listed under a Calypso washer heading. The Calypso's don't have a latch mechanisim on the lid. To you have an Oasis or Cabrio? Those are top load washers by the some of same manufactures that do latch. If so, you would have to push the two green clips between the front panel and the top of the unit towards rthe back while lifting up on the top. You can get your clothes out that way if it is one of these models.

How to Open up a Kenmore Elite Calypso Wash Motion Washer

If this is a Calypso, there are retaining clips holding the top down in the front of the washer. You will need to look along the seam where the top meets the front panel the washer about 2 inches in from each side. Using a putty knife, insert into the seam and push straight in while lifting on the top. The retaining clips will release and the top lifts up. It may take a second set of hands to make this a little easier. When you get the top lifted up, there will be a couple of screws holding the front panel in place. Remove them and you have access to the interior of the washer. If this is not a Calypso, please post back so I can give you correct advice. I hope this helps you.

Calypso fl error

Look along the seam in the front of the washer where the top meets the front panel. About two inches in from each side is a retaining clip. If you take a putty knife and push in on the clip while lifting up on the top, the top of the washer should open up. You may need the assistance of another person and use two putty knives at the same time. It can be a bit tricky sometimes, but the top does open in this manner. Once you have the top open, carefully rest it against the wall behind the washer. There will be a screw holding the front panel on at each top corner. Once you remove the screws, the front panel should come off exposing all the internal components of the washer. You can also remove the back panel for additional access. I hope this helps you.
