Question about LG WM1814CW Front Load Washer
How do you get the front panel off?
Remove the top cover by removing the 2 screws in the back.
Remove the dispenser drawer completely.
Remove the 2 screws on front of the panel where the dispenser drawer was removed.
Remove the screw on the right side behind the front panel.
Disconnect the wire harness behind the panel.
Starting on the dispenser side with your finger, pry forward the top of the control panel until it unsnaps. Continue this all the way to the right and remove the control panel.
Go to the bottom filter door and remove the door. Unscrew the one screw below the filter cap. Remove the plastic insert covering around the filter cap.
Locate a small screw at the very bottom of the frame just below the filter cap and remove. Sometimes there may be 2 but usually there is only one.
Open the door and locate the spring clamp usually located at the bottom of the door seal. Remove the spring clamp. This will loosen the front of the door gasket for removal from the frame.
On the right of the door gasket is the door latch assembly. Unscrew the 2 screws and set the latch hanging by the wire harness.
Remove the 4 or 5 top screws holding the front panel assembly. Once they are removed, the front panel will lift up and out.
NOTE!!! THIS JOB REQUIRES 2 SPECIAL TOOLS FROM LG TO REMOVE THE SPRING CLAMPS ESPECIALLY THE REAR CLAMP. THE SPRINGS ARE SET VERY TIGHT SO IT IS NOT EASY TO REASSEMBLY WITHOUT THE SPECIAL TOOLS.
