I downloaded the Whirlpool Calypso repair manual which is supposed to be common to the Kenmore brand as well.  Many of the instructions are the same as the Kenmore Elite Calypso we own, however, the instruction on how to remove the top panel don't work.  Specifically, the Whirlpool instructions indicate that the front emblem should be removed and the screw underneath it removed so that the panel can slide forward.  It is clear on the Kenmore that the panel will slide forward, however, there is no emblem or item to remove which could be hiding a screw.  It is therefore not clear what screw (or where it is) to remove to allow sliding the unit forward.

If anyone can help with this it would be appreciated...

My apologies....

According to the documentation I have the model number is written as follows:

Model number 110 22062101

Note that the words "Model number 110" are printed as part of the manual and the "22062101" was written in by the service people.  Also the "220621" is clear, however, the final "01" may be a "9". 

The manual calls it a sears kenmore elite automatic washer with Calypso Wash Motion.

Thanks...

That got it.

That piece on the Whirlpool-branded washer you mentioned is purely decorative. Removal of the top panel on your washer proceeds in exactly the same manner, sans decorative trim piece. The top panel is fastened to the front panel by two clips (item 21). HINT: use a putty knife.
