If you mean that you want to take the top off, first take the back off and see if there are any screws from the back that hold the top on. If there are you remove those and the top should pull off from the back towards the front. BUT make sure the wiring harness is disconnected.

Cant remove top of front loading washer

Remove the four screws at the top rear of the top panel that go through the hinge brackets(bare metal in color), then lift up the top panel and push toward the front of the washer while lifting, it may take a firm lift and push, work with it and observe how the top and sides are connected once you have lifted the rear of the top panel. Good luck !

The codes are called error codes. They indicate a malfunction with some process with the washer program. There is a tech sheet inside the washer that explains all these codes and how to troubleshoot them. If this is a Cabrio, the tech sheet is affixed to the inside of the washer on the front panel in between the front and the wash tub. You will need to lift the washer top panel or reach up behind the front panel from underneath the washer to access it.

If you wish to lift the top panel, you will need to insert a putty knife in the seam where the top panel meets the front. About two inches in from each side is a retaining clip that you must push in on while lifting up. Release each side and the entire panel lifts up. Make sure you hold the lid closed while doing so, or it will fly open when you lift the top up. A good idea is to tape the lid shut if you want to open the top.

If you wish to reach up from underneath the washer, use the assistance of a sencond person to tilt the washer back. Its not recommended to attempt this on your own.

If you have any questions about any of the error codes you are experiencing, or if your model number is different, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Washer manual

If you are looking for an Owner's Manual, go to and type in your model number in the following format: "110.28032700" under the "Manuals" link. Your owner's manual is available in a .pdf (adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

If you need technical data sheet to troubleshoot a problem, the washer comes with a tech sheet inside the cabinet. It is located between the wash tub and cabinet in the front of the washer. The tech sheet includes all diagnostics procedures, fault codes and technical data to troubleshoot any problems you may encounter.

You can access it by lifting the washer top, or by reaching up from the bottom of the washer. If you choose to open the washer top, you need to locate the two retaining clips along the front of the washer in the seam where the top panel meets the front of the washer. Push in on the retaining clips and the top panel will pop free and can be lifted up. Make sure you hold the lid closed while lifting, so that it does not fly open when lifting the top. I recommend taping it closed.

If the tech sheet is missing, you can order a new one. The part number is W10026628.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do you get inside a Maytag washer? Does the

I think the top lifts up. There should be two spring clips under the front edge of the top which you can pry out with a screwdriver wrapped in a wash rag to prevent damage to the finish of the washer.

How does the top come off ge washer model wjxr2080t6ww

Use a putty knife to push the spring clips in where the top of the front panel meets the washer top, about 2 or 3 inches in from each side. Front panel pulls forward and lifts off pegs, revealing two 1/4 inch drive hex screws holding top to side panels. If your washer has the lid switch near the front, push the tab on the back side toward the center of the switch and push switch up, then twist 90 degrees and pass switch back through the opening. Now lift washer top at the front side. Most washer tops will unhook from the back side now, but some need to be slid an inch to the side yet to remove once the top is lifted a few inches. If you model still has the lid switch near the back of the washer opening, lift the top at the front and unhook the back of the washer top, pull the top forward a few inches and unplug the lid switch disconnect block. (two wires)

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.
