Use manual screwdriver (not powered one). force edge of sharp knife under edge of screw head so as to 'lift' the screw up (out) and turn with screwdriver. The pressure exerted by the knife should lift the screw enough so the threads 'catch' allowing the screw to be removed. Once you get it out, throw the screw away.
If that doesn't work, then, assuming it is a phillips screw, it is easy to drill it out. Just use a drill that is smaller than the screw head, but larger than screw shaft. Be EXTRA CAREFUL to not get metal filings in the machine. I usually have a powerful shop vac right at the drill bit to suck away the metal filings.
Good Luck

My whirlpool washer won't drain and spin. It is 10 years old. Fix or repair? Please say fix!!!


In top load washers, if the machine goes through the cycles and then just stops at the spin cycle and leaves you with no noise and a tub full of water more than likely the lid switch is bad and not completing the circuit for cycle to continue. This is a safety precaution to prevent injury by reaching in the machine while at high speed spin. You can usually look and visually see the spot where the switch should be and if damaged. How to repair :
1) Unplug the machine. 2) At the head, or control panel, find the two screws that hold it to the case. Some are on the left and right front lower corners of the panel, and some are vertical facing s on the rear left and right side. Also on some models they are in the front but you have to pull the end caps off the sides of the control panel. 3) Remove the 2 screws and then pull the panel from the lower part of it towards you and roll it backwards. 4) Disconnect the lid switch connection in the the middle where the two grey wires and the green wire block connects to the body of the machine, usually near the middle under the panel. 5) with a flathead screwdriver pop out the two brass retainer clips on the right and left side. 6) Open the lid slightly where you can grab the case, not the tub, just the case, and pull forward and surprise!!! You just took the complete top, sides and front of the machine off. The lid switch will be attached to this portion so located it, remove the two screws that hold it in place, under the lid, and swap out with a new one. This is a cheap repair, just take your time and you'll be fine,

My Whirlpool Duet washer was out of balance and almost fell over during the spin cycle. The washer was shaking and the front door came open during the spin cycle. Now the front door will not latch and stay...


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.

My rca rs 1289 5- cd changer mini system will not play, open, close, or change cds. how can i fix this problem at home?


Remove the case screws on the left and right side panels. Pay attention to the long screws that come out of the middle of the panels to make sure they get back in the right spot. Remove one screw from the top rear back panel. Lift side panels of in a hinged motion from the bottom. Remove the top panel in a hinged motion from the rear. In the center of the disc tray remove 1 screw from center. Note the orientation of the tray for re-insertion. Lift the tray up and out. look for small dc motor and spindle. this motor is used to spin the tray. You should find a black belt2_bing.gif between motor and spindle. Make sure it is in good condition. Look to the right rear of the unit. there is a second motor and belt which drives the tray. This belt may be broken or off its spindle. repair or replace the belt as necessary. Plug the unit in and test the open/close function and ensure the gear train, belts2_bing.gif and carriage move smoothly. reassemble.

Will not spin out all the water from clothes


The pump could get foreign materials in it. This can cause all sorts of problems. This repair manual will show how to access. Page 75 says to tip back the machine and remove 4 screws after removing other items.

Washer is stuck on spin and the door wont open. It is locked.


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model front loading washers. If you experience a problem where the door becomes jammed and will not unlock or open, here's an easy way to gain access inside your washer WITHOUT calling the repairman.

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.

Sometimes these doors will not unlock for whatever reason. If there are no error codes being generated, this could have just been a momentary glitch. If you see "Fdl" "DLE" or "Fdu" error codes, these are usually indications of a failed door latch assembly and will require replacement.

Whirlpool Dryer won't spin


REMOVE THE LINT FILTER AND THE 2 SCREWS UNDER IT THEN PRY THE TOP UP AT THE EDGES WITH SCREWDRIVER AND OPEN TOP. NEXT REMOVE SCREWS ON THE INSIDE OF THE FRONT PANEL ON BOTH SIDES THEN UNDO DOOR SWITCH WIRES AND PULL FRONT PANEL UP AND OUT. DRUM MAY DROP A BIT. FROM THERE PULL DRUM OUT AND PUT NEW BELT ON AND REASSMBLE. IT WILL BE EASIER TO REMOVE THE REAR PANEL AS WELL TO RE-INSTALL THE BELT TO THE MOTOR AND TENSIONER.
