Its a weird clip ill give you that, theres a side with a 90 degree angle to it?? that end will hook up and into the **** cut in to the rear panel of the unit. then the 2 curved humps should kinda sorta line up with the 2 small rectangle cut outs in the cabinet, they should just about line up and witha slight push down with the heel of your hand it will snpa in, if it doesnt line up just right it means thecabinet is not on correctly]

Hello Bobbie,
Place a putty knife in the small gap between the top and the top of the cabinet at the left&right end and depress the clip that attaches the top to the cabinet they will pop up about a inch once both sides and free pivot the top back (dont worry its hinged in the back and wont fall off)

How do i reinstall the 2 clips that hold the machine to the back pannel


Assuming that this is a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load.

Looking at the clip from the side there are two hooks. One goes into slots in the washer back and the other snaps into the cabinet.

Starting with both tabs on the clip facing up, the tab with the longer end hooks into the back. The shorter end lays on top of the holes in the cabinet.

Smacking the clip down seats it in the cabinet. It will only go in one way.

1

Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
#
2

Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.
#
3

Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
4

Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.
#
5

Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.
#
6

Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.

Remove the washing machine cabinet. Tilt the cabinet towards you, and then lift the entire cabinet up and off of its platform.

Need to Know how to remove top and cabinet


first, do you have phillips screws on back of console at bottom goin down or in front bottom? one or the other remove these then slide console forward and fold back on hinge on top. if no screws then clips are hidden on front edge on end plates. use putty knife from front to push and release lifting console at same time. fold back.
use screw driver to pry and release brass clips holding top to rear panel. unplug lid sw connector and pull cabinet body away from machine. top and cabinet is screwed together and removed as one piece. cabinet hinges under base on front and sits on top of sides.

Whirlpool Washer stopped agitating and spinning


the most common problem after a large load is the motor coupling has broke. it is what connects the motor to the transmission. it is not hard to replace if you can get the cabinet off the unit. you have to take the control panel loose and "hinge" it back to get access to the clips that hold the cabinet on to the frame. once you remove the cabinet, then take off the pump clips, the motor clips and then the motor. that will allow you to get to the coupling and replace with a new one. sounds easy but its not for a first timer. good luck and hope you can find this of some help.

Cant get the back panel off the washing machine


If it is a top loading washer the cabinet itself is actually removed from the back panel and base frame.

1. Remove two trim caps on either side of the control panel, they are just plastic, and clip in place, either remove by hand, or if they don't come right away you can pop them off with a flat blade screwdriver.
2. Remove two screws (now visible with trim removal) that secure the panel to the cabinet.
3. Panel should now be able to pull up and out, flip it back on it's hinges.
4. Disconnect the wire harness from the lid switch connector, this should be the only place (on most models) where wires connect from the control panel to the cabinet top.
5. Remove the two gold clips that secure the cabinet to the rear panel of washer, they snap into the cabinet, and should pop out easily with a flat screwdriver, this can be difficult to figure out which way to go with the screwdriver, the best I can describe it would be to slide the blade of the screwdriver into the front of the clip (about 2 inches below the cabinet top) and then press the screwdriver back over the top of the clip for leverage. It should pop right out.
6. With the clips removed, you should now be able to simply tip the cabinet towards yourself and pull it right off of the frame. The washers "guts" should all be accessible now.
Hope that helps.

RE: Putting whirlpool washer back together


I would agree with you, it sounds like it isn't going back together correctly. When I put the cabinets back on them, I first make sure all 4 of the spades sticking up from the base are straight and not bent over. Next I grasp the hole the lid covers towards the front and lift and pull it towards me so the bottom of the cabinet is closer to me than the top. Next, I use my foot to push the bottom of the cabinet under the bar that goes across the base of the machine. Then I tilt the top of the washer back towards the machine. I wiggle the sides, until the cabinet seats into the spades coming from the base. After it seats properly, the clips should be lined up properly to be installed.
