Whirlpool washer door wont open


1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

How do I get the front off of Kenmore 24962 washer


You may not need to remove the front. Unplug the washer and remove the control panel (there will be some screws set in the trim at the bottom front of the control panel and some more in the upper back corners). The panel should lift off about a half-inch. You may be able to see the fill valves through the hole where the wiring harness goes up to the control panel. If you can see them, start a fill cycle and watch for stray drips or spraying (lime streaks, corrosion or wet spots on the outside are also evidence of the leak location). If you can also see the hose going from the tub to the water level switch, check that.

Some washers have removable backs; others require removing the top before you can get the front off. Still others have a narrow panel at the bottom front that comes off by removing several screws down near the floor or at the top of the panel (often matches the corresponding panel underneath the door of a front load dryer in a set). On most washers, the front and side panels are one piece of metal, so you have to remove all of the other covers to get it off and you probably will have to tip the machine in order to get at screws in the bottom. In other words, unless you are one of the lucky people with the panel at the bottom front, look for an easier place to watch for the leak.

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.

Water is leaking out of the machine Im not quite sure where from.I guess pouring out would describe it better .It`s not coming from the door.


leaks are usually from valve /dispenser area on top left or from door boot. to check valves open top cover by removing 2 or 3 torx/ 1/4' screws at rear and slide back. check underside of dispenser for cracks, check rubber hose connecting valves to dispenser.
to open front and check around boot, remove top cover, remove screws beside dispenser opening (remove drawer) snap control console off starting at dispenser side. On older non teardrop front disconnect and remove interface cables from ccu at rear (ribbon cable in clips on right side. On new teardrop models remove teardrop by unsnapping at top then work down carefully, then unclip console starting at left, disco cables at right side of interface. remove lower kick panel with 3 screws on bottom. then remove 2 front panel screws. remove 2 door lock asm screws and spring clip around boot, then 2 front panel top screws. panel comes right off, carefull of boot. door lock stays behind.
