Whirlpool Cabrio WTW8200YW
« on: September 09, 2013, 03:52:30 PM »
Hello,

I have a model 8200 Cabrio washer that is leaking from around the fabric dispenser. I'm trying to open the top and cannot locate any sort of top lock clips. I've seen a service manual and videos for older models, and all of them show retaining clips that you push with a putty knife. I don't think the 8200 has these... I've inserted a butter knife where I believe they are located, but no clip. I can't find any information about this model online regarding service.

Does anyone have any experience with the 8200 washer?

Thank you!

- Josh

UPDATE: Got it fixed. I wound up removing a screw on the back hinges, and pulling the top forward to lift it up. There are locking clips, but for whatever reason they weren't disengaging when I pressed them. Anyhow, problem solved. And there was buildup of fabric softener in the drains in the dispenser, so water was overflowing from the dispenser. Cleaned it up and everything it good!
