Question about KitchenAid KAWS850L Top Load Washer
Still trying to figure out how to open the top of the kitchenaid washer, its leaking? help
To open the top of the washer, you must first open the console. Where the bottom of your console meets the top of your washer, you should find a screw on both the right and left hand sides. After removing these screws, pull the bottom of the console to you then rotate it up. Where the back (dull silver) panel meets the top, you should see two brass colored clips. The trick to getting these off, is sticking either a screw driver or pair of needle nose pliersdown where the clip goes into the top. While simultaniously pushing down, push the top of the tool towards the rear of the machine. Once you have the clips off, the front, sides and top will all come off as one assembly(your cabinet). Slowly start to pull the cabinet towards you grasping it at the top. You will have a couple of the small black hoses at the top still connected. Since it is difficult to describe, as you are pulling the top of the cabinet towards you, look for the hoses that start to get tight. A pair of pliers or channel locks will squeeze the clamps enough to allow you to get the hoses off. After you have these disconnected, slide the cabinet slightly forwar and you'll be able to lift it out of the way. A common source of leakage on these is one of the black hoses that goes down to the tub. If it pops off, you will get water on the floor nearly every cycle. Check your dispensers to make sure they are not plugged and causeing an overflow leak. he remaining clprits are your pump (white plastic on the bottom center, the hoses going to it and possibly the tub itself. Good luck and message me back if you need anything else.
