Hello Greyroom, sorry to be of bad news, however if this is the WFMC model washer, the only part for that window is the entire door assy. It isn't available as parts. Since there is a 2 year part warranty on the US product, you may explain your issue to customer support at the 800 number on the machine and they may help with the part.

Hello Ann Calk -Unfortunately depending on which part it is exactly since there is any adhesive available to glue it back together you need to purchase the entire door panel. I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair the window washer.

    How do you replace the Driver's side power window motor on a 2001 chevy caalier

    Before replacing the motor I recommend that you verify that the switch is functioning properly. Replacing the switch is considerably easier than replacing a window motor.
    Here is a description of what to do to replace the electric motor in the driver's power window on a Chevrolet Cavalier.
    1. Remove the interior door panel. There are two screws in the arm rest and four around the sides and bottom of the panel. Disconnect the window door lock cable from the switch on the door.
    2. Remove the sound system speaker by first disconnecting the electrical cable and then removing four screws.
    3. Remove the plastic water shield. The shield is held in place with an adhesive that behaves like bubble gum. Pulling the plastic shield away from the door causes the adhesive to become stringy like bubble gum. The nice feature of this is that some adhesive adheres to the door and some to the shield so that during reassembly the shield sticks well to the door. During removal use a razor blade to cut the strings to help reduce any mess. Some of the shield was caught under the door panel armrest support so that it was necessary to cut the shield to completely. Rather than cutting the shield just folded it up and taped it to the door. Be careful of what comes in contact with the adhesive because after a few hours of contact the adhesive sticks to almost anything. It even stuck to the wax paper placed over the adhesive to keep it from attaching to anything it came in contact with while removing the window regulator/motor assembly.
    4. Remove the window glass. There are two nuts holding the window glass to the window regulator. It is easiest to have the window positioned about half way up to allow access to the two nuts. The window glass can be pulled out of the door by lifting the rear edge of the glass first.
    5. Disconnect the electrical connector from the window motor.
    6. Remove the window regulator and motor assembly. This will require an electric drill and some drill bits to drill out the 5 rivets. There are two bolts that attach part of the window regulator to the door. These need to be removed as well. Once the rivets and bolts have been removed the entire assembly (window regulator and motor) can be removed through the large opening near the rear of the door. It may not look like it will fit, but it does. The most difficult part of this repair was locating rivets to replace the rivets that are removed. Be careful to find replacement rivets that are the same length as those that were removed because at least two of the rivets could interfere with the moving parts of the window regulator if they are too long.
    7. Remove the window regulator from the motor. There are three rivets that hold the window regulator and the motor assemblies together. Remove the rivets by drilling them out. These rivets can be replaced with screws from the local hardware store if you prefer not to use rivets.
    8. Attach the new motor to the window regulator assembly using rivets or screws. Use stainless steel machine screws and nuts along with a lock washer under each nut. Choose whatever attachment method you prefer.
    9. Lubricate the window regulator with white lithium grease.
    10. Reinstall the window regulator/motor assembly in the door.
    11. Plug the electrical connector back on the window motor.
    12. Reinstall the window glass. Insert the front edge first to make this easier. Reinstall the two bolts holding the glass to the window regulator.
    13. Test the new motor by opening and closing the window to ensure that it is operating properly. If not, resolve the problem and continue.
    14. Reinstall the plastic water shield.
    15. Reconnect any electrical connections.
    16. Reinstall the sound system speaker.
    17. Reinstall the interior door panel. Remember to reconnect the power lock connector.
    The job is complete.

    Glue on the face

    Try using a fingernail to pick at the area--does it affect the residue? If it does, try WD-40 oil and let it soak for a little while. If not and it does seem to be etched, then try baking soda, toothpaste, or auto body rubbing compound to rub it out--this requires pressure and some elbow grease! It would seem that "goo gone" would have damaged more than the area of the sticker if it truly affected the plastic (which is probably polycarbonate type similar to modern auto headlight lenses). If the plastic were that tender, then normal washing operations would probably damage the window.

    Remove bosch axxis 2060 washer motor

    Remove the back panel to get to the motor which is at the bottom at the back. Notice two bolts holding the motor into the mount. Remove these two bolts. Notice the back part of the motor is sitting in the mount with black rubber washers. Carefully, pull the motor forward, and this will be abit hard. You can take a flat head screw driver and tap down (in between) on each front plastic washer and the motor will slowly come forward. Becarefull because there is a wire harness still attached to the motor. You have to take wire cutters and clip the placstic band holding the wire harness to the motor. Then grip the harness and wiggle it free. Then remove the single wire also. Putting the belt back is a bit tricky too. Make sure you put back the two black rubber washers and the two front plastic washers.

    Liquid between the plastic window of the door

    Well now the fun begins. The plastic window won't come off without breaking it. However you can seperate the door. Open the door to the stop and with a t20 torx bit remove the 4 screws that holds the door to the hinge. Then as you close the door it will come off. Lay the door on a towel with the face down. With a putty knife along the inside outer edge stating at the bottom of the door, you can divide the door in 1/2. Now you can get to the panel you want to clean. Use care when doing this as it is possible to break the door. The top (handle) of the door will be the last piece you pull out. You reassemble in reverse order.
