there are 2 or 3 screws behind the top cover,but this wont get you to where the odor exists,its in between the inner and outer drum,you need to also remove the front cover including the door then remove the inner drum pulley and belt and then split the outer tub to clean out old detergent and fabric softener if you use this as this is where the smell is coming from

Just need to know how to take front off of washer its a front load the tub is making a racket like something is in it


Do not remove front of this tub. You can remove the item by removing the inner tub fine to reach between the tubs, much easier. You can also remove items in the pump from a clean out if you remove the lower panel. This is also another way to get between tubs, by removing rubber bladder to pump at the bottom right of tub. Good luck, Mastatech

I have a Whirlpool Calypso and I have removed the washplate, lock nut using spanner wrench and u joint assy. I want to remove the metal inner basket so I can clean all the scum inside the outer wash...


Once you remove the agitator, then the nut with the spanner wrench, the basket should lift right out. It may need a little encouragement but it will lift out. I clean the out side tub with a putty knife to get the bulk of the scum off then use some cleaner like 409, or purple power to get the rest off. BE careful around the tub seal around the shaft, you don't want to damage it and have to replace it.

I am trying to clean out all the gunk that has built up between the inner and outer tub on my trusty Kenmore 60 series washer. I have removed the agitator and tried to life the inner tub out to no avail. ...


there is a special nut called a spanner nut. it is about 1 1/2 inches and needs special tool to remove it to get the inner tub out of the unit. you might be able to remove it with a pipe wrench and then you can get access to the outer tub.
i would recommend just using a washer cleaner and trying that first.
these chemical cleaners are designed to remove residues and are much easier then taking the unit apart.

Whirlpool top loader 9 kg - I can't see any serial no.


There are no lint filters on this machine. The lint is pumped out with the water. There may be a restriction in the drain line starting where it connects to the tub or the small drain holes in the inner tub may be clogged.

Lint Filter in Whirlpool Agitator washing Machine


I have a regular top loader and the lint filter is on the underside of the inner tub. You have to remove the inner tub to get to it. You might be able to find a service manual explaining this at appliancejunk.com.
