Is it hinged on the back? If it is then it should flip backwards, There are couple of screws in the front or side of the control panel that have to be removed and this will release it so you can tilt it back.

    You might also ave to take the end caps off the control board to get at the clips that hold it on, apperently they have gone to clips now instead of screws. You can pry the clips off with a screw driver.

Remove cabinet

First and foremost, unplug the washer. Philips screw driver, look behind the control panel, far left and right. Unscrew those and flip up the panel. Unplug the panel from the cabinet. Next take a flat tip screw driver and remove the clips that hold the cabinet to the rear panel. Once you do that tip the rear of the cabinet towards you and there you go. the easy part is now done, When putting it back be patient with lining everything back up. A video to demonstrate these steps can be found online mentioned in several solutions here. I apologize the site escapes me. Good luck.

My p990i phone the fip is broken and it is remained as if the flip is closed and i cannot use the other can i flip open if the flip is broken.....

You need to dismantle the back panel and unscrewing 6 screw using a T6 precision screw driver to be able to release the front panel,but be careful cause the keypad flex connector is attach on the board interface and be careful cause touchscreen and LCD is also connected. On the upper panel,remove the keypad panel by inserting a flat screw driver on each side at the bottom of the front panel.if done,remove the adhesive at the back of the keypad interface and you will see the keypad flex connector,if the parts is still ok,gently remove the flex cause it is fitted by a strong adhesive.the you can replace or if not put an adhesive on a broken part.

good luck....

The Washing Cycle has halted with water in the cylinder and "F04" flashing on the micro monitor in the control panel. I have mislaid my manual and request advice please

This error indicates an obstruction in the water pump. Tip machine back so you can fit a bowl under the bottom right hand side. Flip back cover at bottom right to reveal pump filter access - unscrew (quite a bit of water comes out so have the bowl ready).

Bottom right on the front of your machine is a small door that flips down.
Open this and you'll find a drain tube.
Drain the water off into a dish.
Then remove the filter and clean it out.

Good luck.

How to replace a inlet water valve on top loading whirlpool washing machine model wtw5200vq2

These aren't to bad but hopefully I can clairify well enough for you to follow. You will need a phillips screwdriver, a flat head screwdriver and a 1/4 inch driver (or socket). Slide the unit out and disconnect the water lines and unplug the washer all together. Now stand directly in front of the washer and look at your control panel. That whole console with the 3 selector switches and timer are going to be flipped upside down, backwards off the cabinet. If you look to the left and right of that console you will see a plastic end cap (or ears) on each end of the panel those knobs and the timer are stuck in. You need to look to the backside of the washer at both of those plastic end caps and you will see a phillips screw pointing towards the ground at a slight angle. They should be the only phillips screws in the end cap and they have a special tab right above them to keep them from coming out with vibration. Use your phillips to push in the tab while unscrewing these 2 screw (one in each end cap). Once unscrewed pull the whole panel forward about 1/4 inch and it should release and flip backwards.
If you got it then hard parts over. K, now we work on the area you just exposed by moving the console. Unplug the connector to the lid switch by pulling up locking tab and pulling out the wire connector. You should see 2 brass clips locking the rear panel to the cabinet. Examine them before taking them out so you will be able to pop them back in the same way they are coming out. Use the flat head to slide into the cabinet part of the brass clip and pry to the back of the washer. It should go down straight and pry to the back. You have just freed the whole cabinet front but don't take it all the way off because it can be tricky to get back on. Just lean the back panel out so you can access the valve for replacing and you got it.

Washer filled with water but will not start the cycle

Sounds like you have a bad timer, not too hard to fix. Just get yourself to an appliance parts store and give them the model of your machine and tell em that you want a timer. They should be knowledgeable on how to install it but if not its a pretty simple task. Just unscrew the control panel from in back so that it can flip up. Then pull the knob off the front of the timer and unscrew it. Next move over the wires one at a time being careful to put them on the same prongs as on the original one. Then screw the new timer in place being sure that its going in the same way the old one came out. Then screw it in, put the knob back on, screw down the control panel and you should be good to go.

Star TSP700 Receipt Printer cutter doesn't stop

What you need to do is flip the printer over. Look to the right of the label with the model number on it, you will see a panel with one phillips head screw. Unscrew that screw, remove that panel, and look at the 2 sets of dip switches. For standard operation all of the switches should be flipped to the right. Chances are your number 1 switch will be to the left. Flip it to the right, put the panel back on, screw the screw back in, plug everything in, turn it on, install drivers, and you are good to go.

Kitchenaid superba washer stopped working while in use. possibly timer. not sure how to remove timer box.

The timer knob on the front of the panel have to be removed. It unscrews, counterclockwise. If there are any plastic discs behind it, they will also have to be removed (by pulling off). This will expose the two screws which hold the timer in place.

If the timer knob doesn't unscrew and spins freely, the shaft leading into the timer is dislodged (permanently). You will have to destroy the timer to get to it. Remove the backplate by twisting straight the bent metal pieces which hold the cover in place. When you get to where you can see the shaft you will have to destroy the plastic which surrounds it to get to the shaft ifself. A pair of vice grips and a "I don't care if I destroy it" attitude is helpful. Once you get to the bare metal shaft you can hold it with vice grips and unscrew the knob to expose the two screws which hold the timer in place.
