***** ***** :

The side panel will have screws at the back

***** ***** :

It will slide on clips at the bottom

***** ***** :

One through the plastic cover at the top front

***** ***** :

Another one behind the plastic front at the bottom

JACUSTOMER-gfh2ibrb- :

I have done all that but there are more screws attached to it behind the front panel

***** ***** :

You normally have to take the whole of the front off to get the side off

***** ***** :

At the bottom or top?

JACUSTOMER-gfh2ibrb- :

I realised that hence my question 'how do you remove the front panel'????

JACUSTOMER-gfh2ibrb- :

almost in the centre 2 screws I can see

***** ***** :

Screws at the top and remove the plastic cover and display unit

JACUSTOMER-gfh2ibrb- :

I have tried that too

***** ***** :

There will be additional ones at the bottom of the plastic top or clips depending on the model

JACUSTOMER-gfh2ibrb- :

there are no clips just screws the model is W2241

***** ***** :

Have you undone the rubber door seal from the front also?

JACUSTOMER-gfh2ibrb- :

No not yet but I cannot get to the front panel screws even if I do that

JACUSTOMER-gfh2ibrb- :

You obviously do not know and I have wasted my money - will not be using this service again

JACUSTOMER-gfh2ibrb- :

Are you going to reply or is this it???

***** ***** :

I am just looking at the instructions

***** ***** :

Are you able to remove the screws from the inside of the machine?

JACUSTOMER-gfh2ibrb- :

cant you mail me the instructions or tell me where I can get some technical instructions then I can help myself?

JACUSTOMER-gfh2ibrb- :

No one cannot remove the screws without removing the front panel !!!!!

***** ***** :

With the top off you should be able to get the display off and get your hand inside to get to the screws?

JACUSTOMER-gfh2ibrb- :

no - you obviously have no idea - so I have wasted my time and money - must go now
