My Laundry Question

Maytag Performa - lid will not remain upright -

hinges on one or both sides of lid appear to have loosened -

how to fix???

Share a Little Background Info

the lid will not remain open - when you lift it up, it falls back down -

we have to prop it up - very annoying -

I've found parts lists but not quite sure what to order -

calling a repairman what seem to be more trouble and cost that anything -washer works well otherwise - no noise, grinding, etc.

about 12 years old - very few if any problems

Lessons Learned
