Maytag Bravos Mod. # mvwx500xw0
« on: March 02, 2014, 01:08:52 PM »

I've brought this crazy bravos washer in for repair on a water leak. I can't seem to get the (top) tab locks to release. I've done my share of repairs, this is got me stumped! The diagram shows two tabs 10'' in from side. No matter how I press, lift, push or what ever maneuver. top will not release. Any one run into this before, or am I having a major brain fart? Machine 2011 I believe. :D

Remove top screw from each hinge ,remove harness cover on back of washer just below console,slide top forward about 1/2 inch,raise top 1/4 inch ...while keeping top lifted push top back about  1/4 inch .Then tilt top on rear hinges .
