How do you remove the wash plate dome part number ap3177186? Dinner napkins are stuck under the wash plate. How do we remove them, why did this occur, how do we prevent in the future?
Answer Hello Barbara. 1. Disconnect power from the washing machine.
2. Raise the washer top to the service position.
3. Disconnect the fresh water inlet hose from
the tub ring. 4. Unsnap the tabs that secure the tub ring to
the tub. Lift the tub ring
from the tub. 5. Using a flat bladed screwdriver, release the
three (3) tabs to separate the balance ring
from the basket. 6. Using two (2) flat bladed screwdrivers, 90°
apart, in the notches provided, separate the
dome from the outer wash plate. 7. Remove the six (6) 3/8” bolts securing the
outer wash plate to the universal joint.
(Fig. 3-12) Remove the outer wash plate
from the basket. 8. Once the outer wash plate is removed, the
inner wash plate can be lifted out of the basket.
