Hiya,
Unfortunately, there are no instructions on how to do this.

What is the problem you are having with it?

Thanks

Hiya,
OK, the seal onto the front has a retaining ring, you take this out and the seal just peels off the front panel.

Does your machine have a removable rear panel or is it a split casing machine?

Machine has a removable rear panel

Hiya,
OK, not an easy job then as the tub assembly has to be lifted up through the top of the machine.

Basically, you disconnect everything attached to the tub.
You take the dispenser out and anything else in the way.

Take the facia panel off.
Take the upper weight off.
Take the motor off.
Take the pegs holding the suspension to the tub out. (there's barb you press in so they can be pulled through).
Take the sump hose off.

Whatever you do, don't lay the machine over, tilt it if you have to but keep it more or less upright.

Once everything is disconnected, you lift the entire assembly up through the top.

Start dismantling it and just post if you get stuck.

Let me know how it goes or if you need more help.

If you post the product number (PNC) of the machine, I'll see if I have a service manual for it, there may be something in there to help, if I do.
The number begins with 9 so you need to prefix it with A to prevent it being crossed out when posted.
eg. A914941419 00

Hope this helps
Thanks

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.
Hiya,
Not the drum number I need, it's the product number of the appliance.
It's on a label in the door recess.

Thanks

Hiya,
Thanks for that.

Unfortunately, there's nothing in the service manual to help.

The exploded view of the appliance does show the front is removable.

If you find the tub won't come up through the top, you'll need to remove the front of the machine too.

It does involve removing everything on the front of the machine.

Thanks
