Well, I am back, as Arnold says. This time, I have a long distance problem...daughter is in Denver and I am in San Diego.
Something busted with lid switch/latch assembly. I see the parts diagram, etc. Question is....how to remove the top to fix that. I see on the forum here a manual for the Maytag L84 series vertical modular machines. It does not list this model, but looks similar. Would that procedure ( page 4-6 of the manual) be how to get the top off?
Thanks once again for your help!
