Hi
Im sorry to say no the front panel doesn't come off these are they are a wrap around cabinet.
If it has a loose front weight then what I do is pull the washer out and lean it backwards against a wall as this allows the drum to drop back a bit and gives you more room.
Then open the door and remove the door seal clamp around the seal at the front and then unlip it.
Now you can get your ratchet down there and tighten the bolts up from there.
The bolts are Torx bolts (star shapped) and from memory its size T45 or 40.
That's the way you tighen the bolts on these washers.
If you need anymore info just get back to me.
