Removing Washer Cabinet (2 parts)
Whirlpool® washing machines (direct drive)

Part 1 - Removing the cabinet (previous page)
Part 2 - Re-installing the cabinet (this page)

I'm guessing the washer is fixed and we're ready to put the cabinet back on. Well, here we go:
Re-installing the Cabinet (Part 2)
Instructions Illustrations
Note: Be careful when moving the cabinet, as it could fall and injure your toes.

Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening.
2. Tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling on the lid and opening of the cabinet.

Using the side of your leg and/or body as a support for the front of the cabinet, carefully walk the cabinet to the base of the washer.
3. Place the bottom front flange of the cabinet under the front flange of the base.

The slots in the front (on each side flange) of the cabinet should fit over the tabs on the front sides of the base.

Note: Be sure when tilting the cabinet that the back edge clears the vacuum break.
4. Carefully lower the cabinet so the rear slots (on each side flange) of the cabinet fit over the tabs on the rear sides of the base.

Move the rear panel so it fits up against the rear of the cabinet.
5. Using one of the clips, insert the end of the clip upward into the slot on the rear panel.

Press down on the other end of the clip until it snaps into the hole in the top.

Do the same thing to the clip on the opposite side.

6. Reconnect the harness plug.
WARNING: Electrical shock hazard. Do not pinch any wires. Doing so can result in death or electrical shock.
7. Roll the console forward and down onto the top.
8. Place the tabs of the end caps into the slots in the top panel, and slide the console toward the rear.
9. Using a phillips screwdriver, insert the screw in each end cap and tighten.

Plug the washer back in and turn on both hot and cold water lines at the wall shut off valve.
