Kenmore washer 110.27612600.

I searched throughout this forum for help on removing the control panel plastic end caps from this POS. I tried the putty-knife-under-the-cap-trick to no avail.

There are/were 1/4" self-tapping screws on the rear that went from through the metal back and into the rear of the the cap(s) and they have been removed.

Any help would be much appreciated. I humbly await for the dojo (mojo... GoJo... whatever the frick it's called....). I've attached a picture of the machine in question. Thanks in advance.

Looks like the end caps do not remove on this model, there will be two clips on either end that is holding the console to the case, ref. # 8 in BREAKDOWN OF THE CONSOLE  Going to have to release these with some sort  of padded putty knife or screw driver....the console should then hinge up and over the back panel of the washer assuming you have not removed the hinge screws...

Yep, you're right... the end caps do not come off this model. I was able to shine a flashlight between the top of the cabinet and the console to see where the clip was (I missed it completely when I tried it earlier). Those screws I mentioned previously do indeed have to come out, and there is no hinge action on this model's console either... the console has to drape over the back of the washer.

Thanks for your help!

I myself would like to shoot the Sears engineer who thought up this clip design. I thought Whirlpool was bad for taking the two front console screws and moving them to the back of the console was a stupid idea, but this clip idea is even worse.  Heaven forbid there should still be visible screws on appliances. :soapbox:
