    Default Maytag console removal

    Is this not supposed to just tilt back after the screws along the top are removed?

    I did remove the 5 screws and dispensor. It feels as though something in the middle iss till holding it on. Made wonder if there was a clip under the door housing or the boot. Page 29 just says to remove 5 screws and dispensor, rtight? Then what??

    Do I have to remove hoses and wires mentioned on 28?

    Okay that is what I did except for removing the wires. Didn't think I had gotten that far as the console does not want to roll out or lift off. I might check it again. Almost like detergent and or softener has the plastic clips stuck. So tight in the middle, I can get a putty knife in it to try to work it loose.

    The problem with the washer is one corner og the fron is loose and someone had put double sided taped on it. Trying to get where I can if maybe a metal clip is gone where a screw might go.

    Thanks Jeff.

    Then I thought I would try the console again. I did get it to come loose from the machine without breaking.

    Yep, a little bit. Something gets on my mind, and I can't let go sometimes. Did do the Father's day thing though this evening. Hope you had a good one too.

    Frustrating thing was it would not let water in. Worked fine a few days ago. I actually posted this on the last entry. Did a little research etc.. Ohmed the valve...Fooled with the lock lid switch assmebly..

    Then I had the bright idea of pushing the dial! Yeah Push to Start! Makes sense to me.
