  1. Hello StEVEN5. BlueCrewGuyInMA is correct about most Kenmore Elite front load washers having screws at the back of that top panel that need to be removed in order to lift off the top panel. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing internal components. If you need more help, post that model number for the washer and we will assist you further.

  2. Can you provide a model number? Depending on the model, the top may be attached by slightly different means. Generally, though, there will be screws on the back of the machine that attach the top to the cabinet.
