I need to change the Ring Balancer, or at least check it and its clips. How do I 1) remove the top cover to get to the balancer OR is there a reference manual somewhere? 2) check to see if the balancer is working ok? What would the balancer look like if it were not working correctly? 3) how many clips is the balancer supposed to have? I think I see two Thanks.

ANSWER Hello Wes, There are 2 different ways to get the control panel off. 1st is by releasing 2 screws at the back of the control panel. The second is releasing 2 clips that are under the ends of the control panel. Once you have control panel off then you would disconnect the lid switch and release the 2 clips holding the back of unit to the cabinet. Take cabinet off and this will expose the tub assembly. The ring would have broken clips or maybe a hole in it if it is bad.
