The two screws are on the control panel, one on each end. some are on the front and some are on the back. they hold the control panel to the case.
after you take those out then flip back the control panel (it has two hinges on the back so it wont fall).
then you will see the two metal clips, use a screwdriver to release the pressure and take them off.  you will immediately be able to remove the entire case from the front by tilting it back toward you.
or you can just lay the machine down on its side and look under it.
if the leak is coming from the front center then it is the water pump.

Do you have a clue why my washer fluid is leaking? when i woke up this morning i just saw my parking lot wet, and when i checked it, its the washer fluid leaking. anyone?


The washer fluid is held in a plastic tank, which can crack and leak. It is carried to the sprayers by rubber hoses, which can crack, split, and leak. You can try to take a peek up under the car and see if you can see a disconnected on ruptured washer hose. Try filling it back up with regular water and you should be able to tell where its coming from.

Pro Line Kitchenaid appliances have a 2 Year Warranty on them from the date of purchase. Parts for the espresso machine, because they are considered "non-repairable," will be difficult to find. I would contact Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what they could recommend for you.

LG WM2487 Leak Front Left


Not sure if this machine is similar to the WM2277, but here is the procedure for that - my leak was in the "baffels" hose that connects the drum to the drain pump:

1. Drain the machine - pry the panel at the front left lower corner to get access to a stoppered tube. drain as much water from here as possible.
2. Remove screw visible inside this area and remove the white molded plastic - also remove the screw behind that plastic.
3. Open the washer door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door gasket. Carefully pull the door gasket away from the panel push inside and then reclose the door.
4. Remove the detergent drawer and the two screws visible behind it.
5. Pull the top of the electronics panel away from the machine and lift up - place on top of machine or hook it out of the way
6 Remove the 4 screws that are visible holding the front panel to the machine. Left the entire front panel up about 2 inches and swing to the right (there is a wire connecting the door to the machine on the right)

KitchenAid Dishwasher Leaking from under Door


I had a similar problem with a KUDM25SHWH1 dishwasher. Rubber seal looked fine. I found an incredible tip on another fixi it site. One possible problem iss the pump cover screws may have worked loose and is squirting water directly on the door seal. Man that was it! I saw a couple of looses screws and a small portion of the pump cover gasket showing. I loosened the pump top, reset the gasket tightened it all down...no leaks! The pump I refer to is located directly below the spray arm inside the washer. Easy to get to. Another tip was to look for a split sspray arrm that may spray water directly into the door seal.

Water under front loading machine


you really have to open up anything that you can see the inside to watch where the water could be dripping. check if you can open the back panel or the top cover, just to peek inside.

could be on a loose hose or a broken hose or a water pump seal leaking.

tnx 4 using fixya,

How do i open top of kitchenaid washer


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.

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.
