The white washer goes underneath the counter (with the nut) and the rubber gasket on top of the counter under the dispenser head. You may find it easier to tighten the assembly with this configuration. As for filling the bottle, unfortunately it must be unscrewed from under the counter in order to refill it.

Hope this helps.

Soap residue left on dishes and hardened residue, water left in bottom of machine after cycle finished


Start by filling the soap dispenser with white vinegar and run on the highest/hottest setting. Most likely this will not work but you can be hopeful.
Next, remove the mounting screws above the front of the dishwasher and pull out of counter. Disconnect the drain line from bottom of dishwasher (usually a flat-head or squeeze clamp) and also from the bottom of the sink. Take it outside and blow the hose out with either an air hose or the garden hose and check for debris. Re-install and check for operation. Also check the drain for debris.
If this fails, then your best bet is to purchase a new dishwasher because the sump pump has gone bad.

The soap dispenser door will not open. How do I remove the top of the washer to access the soap dispenser? I know that the blue plastic piece for the fabric softener lifts up when I try to pull open the...


To remove top: Remove the bottom screw from the plastic clips on back of the washers top. next, stand in front of machine and, using the palms of your hands, sharply push the top back about 2 inches, allowin you to lift the top off.
Dispenser issue: you may have to drill a small hole in the plastic top of the dispenser to allow you to push the offending part down while pulling on the drawer. seal the hole with silicone or foil tape.

Received no instruction manual with tank and broken plastic nut


The piece you are referring to is the water inlet to the tank. go to your local hardware store and buy a new one. It installs on the bottom of the tank. Use an adjustable wrench. Nothing on the toilet needs to be extremely tight. In fact after you put the was ring on the bottom of the toilet. Drop in the closet flange bolts in the closet flange (brass bolts with a t on one end) do not tighten them extremely tight the toilet will break.

F35 & SuD error codes on Kenmore Elite Washer


F35 has to do with the pressure switch which is located under the top panel on the back right. It will have a little black hose hooked to it. This happens when SUDS or detergent somehow gets up into it and usually locks unit out. Only solution is to replace pressure switch. You can find the tech sheet behind the bottom front panel usually tape to the back side of that panel or taped to the bottom right side inside unit. Hope this helps

Cannot get front panel off to fix leak


jason, you dont need to take the whole thing apart to get at that, in a nutshell take the top cover off and take the nuts out that hold the detergent/fabric softener dispenser in, it has nuts on the front and on the top, once you get the dispenser out its a lot easier to work on that coiled rubber tube, you can at least get your hands in there to take it off, i hope you dont find the same problem i did, the plastic around the rubber hose was cracked meaning the tup itself is cracked. i filled the cracks in the plastic with jb weld and wait a while. ive had nothing but issues with this washer , very poorly constructed.

Whirlpool top load washer


Bill,

On most top load whirpool washers (not including the calypso or the cabrillo) there are 2 main styles for getting the agitator off.

The first and easiet are for the older styles. This will be easy to identify as there is a green ring around the fabric softner dispenser holding it on. Raise the ring up and the dispenser will come off. Underneath you will see a plastic cap. Pry this off with a small flat hear screw driver. Underneath there, there will be a 7/16" bolt. Take it off with a rachet and lift the agitator from the bottom and out of the way.

The second and slightly more complicated method is for the new style. This can be identified by the 4 evenly spaced slots just underneath the fabric softner dispenser. First gently rock the top of the fabric softner side to side. the white top should come off as well as a clear plastic cup underneath. You will be left with 4 white plastic shafts sticking up just above thse slots mentioned earlier. Taking care not to break these shafts, rotate the remaining top piece of the agitator counter clock wise. Once it rotates, pull/ pry it off. Underneath there will be a clear plastic cap with 2 tabs on it. Pull the cap off by these tabs. Remove the remaining 7/16 bolt underneath and lift the agitator off by the bottom.

There are many variations of agitators, but one of these 2 methods (or even a mixture) should get you taken care of. One other thing to mention. Once you take either of the perviously mentioned styles off, you may find a white square hole under neath the dispensers. With this style, you use a 1/2" rachet to unscrew it counter clockwise and the 7/16 bolt is underneath.

If this doesn't seem to match what you have, get me the model number (just underneath the lid to the center rear) and I can get you some step by step directions just for your model.

Maytag Washer: How to Remove Tub


Under the agitator is a flat nut with notches in it. this nut requires a spanner wrench that will fit into the notches. You can use a large channel lock plier. rotate the nut counter-clockwise. under the nut will be a seal. remove the nut and the seal and pull up on the inner tub. to replace you'll need to replace the seal. if the nut isn't too chopped up, use this to refasten the tub.
