How to Take Apart a KitchenAid Washer
The KitchenAid washer can have various problems over its life span. A broken washer belt can keep the washing machine from spinning. A clog in the drain tube can keep the washer from draining. If you are having problems with your KitchenAid washer, you can take it apart with a few tools found around the home. Once you have taken the washer apart, you can diagnose the problem and make the repairs as needed.
Unplug the washer from the wall outlet. Pull the washer away from the wall so you have complete access to it.
Press the end caps on the control panel in and pull the caps off. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws holding the control panel on. Push the control panel back so it rests on the rear hinges.
Unplug the lid switch connector from the top of the washer. This connector is on the back of the unit casing. Pry the metallic clips off the washer's top panel with a screwdriver.
Lift the washer cabinet off the unit base to gain access to the inner components of the washer.
