Roper washing machine-unbalanced spin always-how to remove panel

The roper washing machine is 5 years old. When it spins, the tub rocks back and forth making a loud noise. Have stopped it and repositioned the clothes and it still does it. I want to open the front panel to see if there is a hook broken that attaches to the tub but can't figure out how to get the front panel off. You use to be able to just pry the top up a little and flip down the front panel, but that doesn't work on this model. Suggestions?

Making loud noise in the spin cycle and now does not spin at all

Sounds like the tub bearing is gone. Get it checked out though. It could be the pump bearing, a cheaper fix. Or as bad as the tub bearing, a motor bearing.

Tub makes loud thumping noise when spinning

Good morning! It's common to hear a loud thumping noise during spinning because the load (clothes) are not properly place in the tub. Please try to put the load in order & compress it down. best regards.
