Removing the Cabinet from Your Whirlpool or Kenmore Direct Drive Washer

Most repairs on this washer require that you remove the cabinet. It's really easy to do and makes working on this washer a real pleasure. That's what I love about Whirlpool--their stuff is generally very technician-friendly.

The picture below shows all the steps involved. I'll just give a few extra tips.

removing the cabinet from a whirlpool or kenmore direct drive washer.

Ok, start by unplugging the washer and then removing the two, #2 phillips screws holding down the console.

Unclip the 3-wire harness, shown above. HINT: If you're going to run the washer with the cabinet off, then you'll need to jump out this harness to makes the washer run. Also, a very common re-assembly mistake is to forget to re-connect this harness. No connect == no run. If the washer doesn't run after you re-assemble it, this is why.

Awwite, next take out those two curly clips, shown below, that connect the cabinet to the back panel. Remember how they go in 'cause if you don't, it can be a moron's IQ test to get 'em back in (voice of experience talking).

Ok, it's victory street now, just pivot that cabinet toward you and give a little USMC Ooo-RAHH to lift that sucker right outta there. Nice job, Slick, now go to work.
