Appliance deconstruction is a technique sometimes used in the ancient martial art of Fixite Do. Since deconstruction is terminal for the appliance, it is only used as a last resort.
An Apprentice Appliantologist at the repair forums posted a nice demonstration of appliance deconstruction using the Impact Technique. One thing to notice in this demonstration is that the washer has an electronic user interface board, which has been a troublemaker on this model and which was the problem in this case. It’s not surprising that it ended up in deconstruction since this washer model violates the 5th Law of the Prophecy.
The Percussion Technique is another method which is quicker and more thorough but requires a larger work area and some specialized appliance deconstruction tools.
