The front panels of our Duet washing machine are coming off. Please have a look at the following picture. Could you please let me know what the part number of the fasteners is? It feels like one of them snap in fasteners. I can push it the panel in but within a few seconds it snaps out again. Could you please let me know what needs to be done to replace them.
In advance, thank you very much for your help.

Re: Whirlpool Duet GHW9400PWO, Front Panel comes off
There are no fasteners that I know of. I've worked on this model numerous times and have never seen any. There should be screws holding the front panel in place. Remove the lower panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Placing a block of wood under the bottom of the frame to elevate the front feet of the washer off the floor will make it easier to access the screws. The washer is heavy so it may take two people to do this. DO NOT push on the door or the control panel. Use the facing of the washer front panel for leverage. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. There should be a mounting screws for the front panel on each side of the washer. Make sure the screws are present and that they are tight. You may just have a screw loose (no pun intended). I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you need further assistance.

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier. 2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.

Hi, If you remove the lower half of the front panel, you will be able to see the pump and hoses. Another option is the bellows around the door. Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.
The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath.The panel will drop and come off.Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.Check your pump too, comes after the filter.
you can remove the lower access panel of unit ( 3 screws across the front bottom of unit), behond there directly in the middle of machine yuoll see large plastic turn screw. that s teh pump housing "filter cleanout". unscreww and clear all debris. be aware however if theres water in machine it will come out on you when you release teh turnscrew
