I have a amana washer it runs fine but I have aleak, I am not sure if its the hose or pump. But need to find out how to open it up so I can check.
Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX you for choosing our service.

At the top front there are 2 retaining clips. About an inch from the edge on the right side between the top and the front press in with a putty knife. Shining a flashlight will help you locate where to press while pulling on the front.

Repeat for the other side and the front will then tilt top first toward you and out. That will get you in there.

Thanks,
Barry

Tom that may be correct to the point of instead of pulling on the front lift on the top while pressing each point. It is difficult to tell from the diagram which it is but it will be one or the other. The clips are there.

If the top lifts then look down inside to the right and left corners, you will see a screw on each side. Remove those and then the front will come off.

Thanks,
Barry
