There are small clips between the top and the front cabinet. You need to use a bright light to find them, then use something like a small putty knife to go in between and release them. After that you will see how to take off the front. Hope this helps.

    On Maytag dryer model # MDE9316AYA how do I get the top off? One of the fins inside the drum is loose, and I hope I can reach the screws to tighten it up by removing the top, but it won't budge and...


    Opening the cabinet of these machines begins with the cabinet top. There are two spring catches located just below the cabinet top that secure it to the rest of the unit. These catches are located towards each side edge. Use a putty knife (or some other thin and flat object) to slide in under the cabinet top to disengage each of the clips. You can now lift up the cabinet top.
    With the cabinet top lifted, you will see two screws located inside the top of the cabinet front. Remove each of these screws and lift the front panel to disengage the two clips found at the bottom. As you remove the front panel, disconnect the door switch and any other wiring, taking careful note of which wires are to be reconnected where.

    The washer filled up with water but wont turn on


    This is a clear evidence of a broken lid switch. Power to the drive motor is routed through the lid switch. The machine, therefore, will not turn on when the lid switch is not working. Manually activate the lid switch and if still doesn't work, bypass the lid switch. Disconnect power then jump a wire between the outer terminals of the disconnected connector from the cabinet top then reconnect power. Replace the lid switch to address the problem if the machine works with the lid switch bypassed.

    Release the console from the top of the cabinet depending on the model of your machine then pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.

    Kenmore model 110 top load washer water drips out slowly, takes a long time to fill tank


    Either the inlet hose screens or the water inlet valve screens or the the water inlet valves not opening completely. Check the screens and the water flow from the inlet hoses by removing them from the water inlet valves. The water valves are not opening properly and needs replacing if the screens are clear and the water flow from the inlet hoses are good.

    The top cover is held by two hold down brackets hidden behind the front panel posts. Lifting of the top cover requires the removal of the front panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

    Open the dryer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening and securing the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

    The front panel is held to the cabinet by clips on each side secured to the cabinet front flange. Small slots in each side of the front panel engage the clips and hold the front panel in place. Grasp the sides of the front panel near the top cover then pull the front panel away from the cabinet.

    Tilt the top of the front panel away from the cabinet and lift it up to release it from the two clips retaining its bottom to the base of the dryer, and then move the panel away.

    Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screw attaching each hold down bracket to the cabinet. Swing each bracket to the outside then unhook it from the slot in the lip of the top cover. Lift the front of the top cover and flip it to the rear of the dryer.

    Reassemble the front panel and the top cover by reversing the given disassembly steps.
