How do you remove the control cover panel on the dryer? We need to replace ours due to bubbling of the plastic surface and the "start" button has caved in.
Answer Frank, here's some help : " Unplug dryer or disconnect power. Remove the two rear screws from the top panel, and slide the top panel to
the rear to remove. Access the machine control electronics (on the left side of the cabinet) and disconnect the P5 ribbon cable.
The console panel must be removed to access the console electronics and housing assembly. Remove the knob from the front of the console panel. The console panel has two locking tabs on the left and right rear, one locking tab on the bottom (hidden), and three
snap releases across the top. Press the locking tab on the right rear, and gently rotate the console panel up as you pull the top free of the
three snap releases, finally pressing the locking tab on the left, and lift the console panel off. The console electronics and housing
assembly is held to the console panel by seven locking tabs. Press each of the locking tabs while gently lifting the console electronics and housing assembly out of the console panel."
Our washer's front panel which is plastic is bubbling up around the control buttons, can it be replaced? It is about 4 years old.
