I have ordered a new heater element and have read that on these newer Whirlpools that you replace them from the front. That is great, yet this model does not have the "lower panel" that I have read about a few times and has a full one piece front panel from the floor to the top of the unit. Does this whole piece come off somehow or do I need to get to the heater element via the back panel (the dryer is only about two years old)? Thanks!
ANSWER Hello Chris. You will release the clips and flip the top panel back. Then remove the screws and remove the front panel to access and replace the element in the unit.
