Question about Washing Machines
HOW DO YOU GET THE TOP RAISED ON A 2 YEAR OLD KENNMORE WASHER. WATER INLET VALVE NEED TO BE REPLACED. THEIR ARE NO CLIPS BUT SCREWS ON THE BOTTOM SIDE OF WASHER. HOW DOES ONE GET TO THESE SCREWS TO GET THE TOP OF WASHER TO RAISE.
You start out by taking the screws out of the console. These screws should be located under the snap off caps on either side of the console. Pop off these caps (front of the console, on either side) and you will see the two screws in the bottom corners. After removing these screws, pull the entire dash unit lightly towards you, the swing the console up and over the back of the unit. You will see 2 gold colored clips on either side of the unit top. Remove these clips by placing a screwdriver in the front most area (area closest to you) and just pop the up, the swing them out of the retainers in rear of the machine. Unhook the set of wiring that goes down into the unit (lid switch wiring). Swing the cabinet at a 45 degree angle towards you, and then lift the hole cabinet off. You will have total access to the interior of the unit. Installation is the same as removal, just be sure you get the front of the cabinet under the lip in front, and the rear of the cabinet gets placed back in the small notches when you fold it back. Let me know if you need further help. Good Luck!!!!!
