S.E.Thomas :

hello, welcome to just answer. my name is XXXXX XXXXX and i will be happy to assist you with your problem. in the crease between the top and front panel there are two clips. use a butter knife to locate these and push them straight back and lift the top. then you will find 2 screws holding the front on just down the inside, one on each side.

JACUSTOMER-0o3jdggd- :

Where are these creases in the back of the machine

S.E.Thomas :

no no, between the top panel and the front panel. there is a small gap where they meet

S.E.Thomas :

the clips are 1-3 inches in from each side

JACUSTOMER-0o3jdggd- :

I am upstars I will run down and try this and get back with you ASAP

JACUSTOMER-0o3jdggd- :

Is that ok

S.E.Thomas :

yes

JACUSTOMER-0o3jdggd- :

I got the top lifted off how do I lower the front so I can reach the hoses

S.E.Thomas :

look in side the washer about 3 inches down on each side. there is one 5/16 screw on each side that removes the front panel.

JACUSTOMER-0o3jdggd- :

I'll be right back

S.E.Thomas :

once these are removed the top will pull out and then lift off the clips at the bottom.

JACUSTOMER-0o3jdggd- :

Ok those screws will take a bit to reach will thhe door lower after I take them out

S.E.Thomas :

the top of the front will tilt out and then lift off the clips

JACUSTOMER-0o3jdggd- :

S.E.Thomas :
