Question about Washing Machines

How do you remove the panel to change the lock mechanism in the washer body of a kenmore front loading washing machine, model 42822? NOTE: this is the lock mechanism on the washer side itself, not just the plastic hook piece on the door?

    I want to change the seal on my Bosch w/m and have managed to locate all of the screws on the top panel, the control fascia and the bottom panel but I can't work out how to get at the screws which clearly hold the front panel on, above and below the door lock. There are what look like two plastic tops, possibly with the screws underneath them. Do I prise these off or are they some special kind of screw? I'm nervous of breaking the plastic tops if I use force. Help!

F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

This is a very simple repair, if you follow the step-by-step instructions. Take your time and if you have questions, let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS An alternative method is to work through the door with the front panel in place, but this limits access. To make things easier, it is strongly recommended that you remove the front panel.

You need to get access behind the front panel, taking the top panel off is probably best. Then you can see the the door release mechanism and release it.
