How to open the top lid of the Cabrio WTW660sb3
« on: September 24, 2016, 06:42:36 PM »
I am trying to open the top lid of my washer and can't get the lid to release using a putty knife to release the clips. Am I missing something?

I meant the Cabrio WTW6600, not 660....

Front spring clips probably rusted.  Spray with penetrating oil, wait then take a stiff putty knife & tap sharply with a harmer 6 to 8 inches from side.  Inline with lid edges.
Also you can take screws from hinges off & slide lid forward

I may be wrong but this model may not have front clips . On some of the newer models you need to go around behind the machine ,remove the 2 ,1/4 screws from either side of the hinge and push the top forward about 1/2 an inch ...then lift the top slightly and reinstall the back hinges .

you were right first time. Two spring clips about 3-4inches in from each side that requires a putty knife to be pressed in(twards back of machine)so the lid can be pulled up.
