I want to replace lid on my cabrio model wtw7800xw2 with a solid lid frame on glass lid keeps breaking

If all you want to do is to replace the lid, there are two TORX 15 screws on each side. Undo those and the lid should slide right off the pins. Be careful to not drop them into the tub or dispensers. You can then slide the new lid right on. Put the screws back on and test. If you lift the top cover off and mess with the springs, it is a PAIN to take off and put back on.

Glass separating from lid

Replace with steel lid. Parts below but first I have to get my 2 cents in!
I bought the replacement glass lid and it broke within the first week. Terrible design! They are using double sided tape to hold the glass to the hinge. There is too much spring tension to be held with tape. Way to go whirlpool engineers. I'm just a welder with 1 year of school and I figured that out? Hmmmm?

Steel lid retro fit
Whirlpool will tell you it can't be done. However I did and it works and looks perfectly.

here's the parts you need
All from a WTW8200 series washer
Part prices from Sears. I'm sure you can find them cheaper elsewhere if you look. I bought from sears to utilize the return policy while figuring out what parts to get. Thanks Sears! Give them the business if you can!!
1 pc 8572026 Steel lid $40.90
2 pcs 8563964 hinge $6.99 ea (hinge from the glass lid are different and the screw holes won't line up)
4 pcs W10119828 $3.99 ea (could probably get from the hardware store for half the cost.
Solution 2:
buy a replacement glass lid from whirlpool and send them your broken original glass lid and get a refund for the one you just bought. Repeat as needed until they figure out they need to produce a quality product.

How do I remove the scanning glass in order to clean it from the inside?

For some reason my scanner over the years has developed a film/residue from the off gassing of the plastic etc. on the underside of the glass. Even though it did not seem to affect the quality of a scan, it was something that should not be present.

Here are the steps that I went though to accomplish that....

1) lock the lamp (switch on the bottom)
Very good idea.

2) open the lid and at the hinge end there are 3 screws (2 are recessed) & another screw in the middle.remove the 2 screws that are recessed (The one in the middle can remain in place.)

Warning: This cable is attached to a little PCB that has two connectors. It is best that you remove the cable on the scanner base side, since it is easier to re-insert back into the connector.

Note: That there are slots in the PCB that are to align with slots in the plastic that make up the base (will talk to this later).

3) After removing the two screws, the tricky part starts - the lid and glass and framing around the glass ( 3

sides) can slide out toward the back (toward the screws (that you just removed), lid hinges). This should Only

slide out approx 0.75in before the glass & frame are free of the bottom assy.
Note: the glass continues under the front bezel for approximately 0.75" 18-19mm. This is the reason that you are required to slide the assy. off the base.

Note: near the hinges the lid assy. is rather flexible so the following is possible. This sliding process that I & the previous writer write about is extremely hard. What I did was to take a very wide flat screw driver and used it as a pry bar.

Note: that there are tabs that have to clear the opening that you create when trying to insert the flat screw driver.
This enabled me to get a great deal of mechanical advantage over the process. I placed the scanner on it side

with the bottom facing me. Then I placed the tip of the screw driver against the hinge ( inside the scanner, part of the lid assy.) and used the base where the hinge is normally located (when assembled) as the pivot point.

Note: Go from one hinge point to the other and continue to use this method until the lid assy. is free.

Note: I only slid the lid assy. out approx. 1/8" or 3mm or less before going to the other hinge & repeating the process.

Note: after the lid w/glass assy. is free pivot the whole assy. at the hinge side to gain access to the base cable & disconnect it from the PCB.

Warning: The cable from the base to the lid (PCB) needs to be disconnected since there is not a great amount of free length of cable to work with and this cable is a great deal easier to reconnect during re-assembly than the one from the lid.

4) At this point the glass & lid assy. are free of the base assy.

5) clean the glass. It is glass, so one can use isopropol alcohol or distilled water.
Use a lent free cloth and make sure all the dirt, and deposited vapor/off gassing is cleaned off.

6-9) Reverse steps 4 through 1 to reassemble.
Note: I did not reverse those steps since it was not necessary. What I did was at a very slight angle slide the glass under the front bezel.
Note: I first made sure that the cables (lid & base) were connected to the PCB, & as I was sliding the lid assy. into position. I also made sure that the PCB slots were properly aligned to the plastic slots in the base assy.

Note: I did not worry about if the clips on each side were engaging or not. This enable me to make sure that the cables were attached & that the PCB was positioned properly. After everything looked good I pressed the Lid assy. & base together so as to engage the clips on both sides. This does not require a great amount of force/pressure to accomplish.

Warning: Do not forget to unlock (the slide switch for) the lamp.

10) Clean the top surface same as step 5 (prior to plugging it back in of course).

Hope this helps.

I can not get to the scanner glass. I don't know how to lift the second compartment to reveal the glass it only opens a little.

Make sure there is no shipping tape still holding it down. around the edges.

If you can see inside, see if there is some thing on the glass that has melted or looks like it is holding the lid down. You can take a plastic or wood piece to stick under the lid so as to not scratch the glass to see if there is some thing on the glass holding the lid down.

Usually there is no problem with the hinge of the lid unless the unit has been dropped on the floor or crushed in shipping.

Hope this helps -greatcir_0.jpg

Must certainly be frustrating.

How to clean the underside of the scanner glass on an HP4400C flatbed scanner.

This is acutally easier than it looks. I just had the same problem with a cloudy film starting to form underneath the glass on my older HP 4400C scanner.

First completely remove the hinged top lid by lifting straight up on both long ends of the lid - notice the 2 hinges on the back end of the lid will come straight up and out of the body of the scanner, still attached to the lid.

Next look down inside the 2 hinge holes (on the main body of the scanner where the lid hinges just came out of) and you will see a screw in each hole. Remove both screws using a phillips screwdriver. This will allow the rear end of the scanner to come apart enough so you can now lift it up a few inches to separate it and get your hand inside there to clean the underside of the glass with a soft cloth - BUT JUST REMEMBER THE FRONT END OF THE SCANNER WILL STILL BE CONNECTED, so don't pull it too far apart because it could snap and break something that is still holding the front end together. (I could not figure out how to separate the front end piece, and then I realized I didn't have to).

So on the rear end of the scanner, now carefully pull the light upper colored plastic apart from the lower dark plastic just enough so you can get your hand inside the compartment and use a soft cloth to clean the underside of the glass. I just used a small piece of an old cotton t-shirt with a couple little dabs of water on it and then just kept rubbing the dirty areas on the underside of the glass over and over until all the dust film/streaks disappeared and the glass was once again clean and all clear.

Then gently lower the glass back down and line up the plastic pieces together on the rear end and put the 2 screws back in the hinge holes, and then reinsert the hinges in their slots and lower the lid back on top of the scanner glass and it is ready to go again !!

Hope this works for you like it did for me.

Cleaning underside of glass on 610 scanner glass has mildew on underside

Ok. Found this question on-line as I also wanted to know the answer. Couldnt find an answer so I just decided to have a go myself. It was quite easy really. Lift the lid upwards and gently push it backwards from the hinged end and it will unclip. With the scanner facing away from you, undo the only 2 screws visible at the back. Then gently lift up and push forward towards the front. You can see thru the glass 3 plasic lugs holding the front down. With a little wiggle the cover with the glass attached will come away from the slotted holes where the plastic lugs go. Clean glass an carefully replace lid in the reverse order. Pete

How to pick off glass of canoscan 9950F I want to clean the dirt on the lamp and the inner side of glass please HELP

Unplug power source.

Disconnect cable connecting the lid to the base.

Remove the lid by pulling straight up.

Using a phillips head screwdriver, remove the two screws that can now be seen at the bottom of the slots into which the lid hinges were inserted.

Starting near the hinge slots, pry the black plastic frame up and away from the gray plastic body.

Slide the glass panel and its gray plastic frame towards the back of the scanner and lift off.

Here are the steps:

Remove and set aside the scanner cover

With printer facing away from you, remove the screw from under the right-hand corner of the lid at the very back behind the hinge. Then remove the two (shorter) screws from the top of the lid, in the square openings.

Turn the printer around, and carefully raise the entire lid. At this point, it is advisable to place a cloth over the printer innards, in case you drop a screw. Remove the three screws along the front of the lid, inside the round recesses, pointing upwards.

Remove the two screws on each side of the lid, pointing upwards.

Gently coax the dark gray cover away from the lighter gray base of the lid. It is probably easier to do this by pulling the front corners slightly outwards, and sliding a finger in between. The top of the lid should come off easily, exposing the underside of the glass.

After cleaning, replace the cover carefully. The lid must be up, and the posts of the hinges must align with the holes at the back. In stall the two (short) screws in these locations first, then replace all the remaining longer screws.

Good luck!!
