You just need to remove the two small bolts at each bottom corner of the panel.

I've searched around for DIY instructions, but those are exceedingly difficult to locate. It seems that Whirlpool wants you to buy their Door Reversal Kit for 11.99 in order to accomplish this.

SOURCE: Whirlpool duet electric dryer, not getting any power

Mine shows a faint light behind the control locked indicator and the timer is dimly lit on the two middle horizontal bars (middle of the eights). They go off by pushing various button combos. If I unplug it for a week I can get the control to work for a few minutes.

I replaced the control board, it worked for 5 minutes, then back to nothing. I want to replace the interface but would rather not waste any more money.

I dont want to check every wire for continuity. If someone has fixed this problem, please let me know.

Whirlpool duet dryer ring around the door keeps u hinging. They are metal and what I've tried is pushing them back in.

The clips are first secured to the ring. Then, the clips themselves go into holes around the door.

They are somewhat spring loaded and you'll need to compress the fingers on the clips to remove them from the holes. Then, position the clips properly on the ring and push the slotted section (on the clips) onto the plastic tabs around the inside of the ring. Then, use a soldering iron to melt the tab heads so the the clips will stay on the ring. Then, just line up the holes on the dryer with the clips and start pushing them back into the holes.

Remember, make sure the clips are aligned properly, else they won't line up with the holes.

Good luck!

Removing rear door panel 2004 subaru outback

Remove the trim ring around the inside door handle by pulling it up and towards you first, then downwards.
Remove the switch panel. There are two spring clips holding it. Lever up carefully on the top end edge first, then push the panel towards the car floor. Disconnect the electrical connector.
Remove the screws behind the door handle, under the switch panel mount, and on the armrest.
Dislodge the 7 trim clips around the edge of the door trim, starting at the lower edge and working up. Lift the door trim out of the top channel.
If you remove the plastic sheet, take care not to tear it, a spatula is handy for this.

This was a very poor design from the factory ..The clips attach to the trim ring at the factory by plastic welding (MELTING) them in place to the stanchion's, in working on many of these sometimes you can super glue them back in place, but you will have to remove the trim ring completely to do it. other times i had to just replace the entire ring as it was to far gone to repair Just a bad design guess they didn't think it would ever have to be taken apart

Where on line do i find how to get the door panel off to repair the window regular

If this is a front door.. There is one screw in the top in the triangle covered by a plastic circular cover. The rest of the door is held on by plastic push clips. Use a trim panel pry bar to remove the panel. Stick the pry bar between the door and the trim panel around the clip when prying. The clips break easily so use caution. They are a dealer only item and cost about $2 each. Be careful when removing the panel, I'm fairly certain there aren't any other screws but it's been a while since removing one on a Grand Cherokee so don't go yanking anything too hard. Once the panel is hanging there just unclip the door handle and lock rods and any electrical connections.
If this is a rear door it should be very similar except for the screw in the triangle.

Changing door speakers

The clip behind the handle requires a specialty tool available at any autoparts store. it is shaped like a U, but has little tabs on it to catch the ears of the clip.
After removing the clip, remove the plastic trim by the mirror... and a little trapdoor inside the door handle cup will have a screw in it.
The rest are just push-clips, so start at the bottom, and pull toward you... working your way around the door.

The tool looks like this...

Exterior door trim

The molding in the middle of the door clips on. Remove interior door panel to access the clips, they usually break off. Or do you mean the black tapes (stickers) around the window opening, they are just stickers. Take a heat gun to loosen glue and peel off.
