How to open a Maytag A183 top loading washer

(1/1)

JSG:
Hi,
I am new to appliance repair.  Could someone give me a hint as to the correct way to open a Maytag A183 top loading washer?  Generally do they open by popping clips in the front with a putty knife or is there an easier way?  The machine has started leaking and I am trying to figure out where.

Hi JSG

There are a couple screws the hold the front of this washer on.
They are located near the bottom. I have them pointed out in the attachment.

You may not be able to see them until you get down on the floor as there is a little lip on the front of the washer that they hide under.

Remove them two screws and then pull the front off from the bottom.

JSG:
Thank you very much for your help!   Somehow I missed those 2 screws at the bottom.   Once I had the front off I saw the leak was at the hose connecting the bleach fill line to the bottom of the tub.  Very nice web site too.

AJ:
People miss them two screws all the time. It's easy to do. One of them simple things that once you know it easy.

Glad you like the site.
