How do you remove the front kick panel

Here are the steps.Hope this helps.
Insert a putty knife between the top of the kick plate and bottom of the front panel near the center of the washer, if you have an older model top load washer. Move the putty knife blade in and out in that area until you feel an obstruction. The obstruction is the kick plate retaining clip
Press the putty knife blade over the spring clip until you feel the clip disengage. Let go of the putty knife and grab both ends of the kick plate with your hands. Pull the kick plate away from the washer

ift the front of the washer with help from a friend, if you have a front load model Whirlpool. Slide a block of wood under the front of each side and gently lower the washer Remove the three hex head screws on the bottom edge of the washer kick plate with a Phillips-head screwdriver or nut driver. Pull the kick plate away from the washer.

How do I remove the front to check the insides??? I think the belt is broken

Place a flat blade metal putty knife on the right and left sides of the front at the top where the front panel meets the top panel. There is a metal clip on each side that locks the front in place. Push in with the putty knife between the top and front and you will feel these springs. Press in one at a time and pull out gently on the front and it will come off.

How do I remove the front panel of a ge profile washer wprb8050d

That may not be possible; many units have connected front and sides that are removed as one piece by removing hardware in the back and inside the washer.

Removing top cover to access switch

You have to pretty much use a putty knife to remove the front panel. Insert the putty knife into the edge of the front panel where it meets the top lid panel about and inch or two from the sides. One clip on each side. Push in the putty knife and give a little pull on the front panel repeat step for other side. That should get you into where you need to be.

Hope this helps you out. Feel free to ask any more questions about this if you run into anymore issues.

Will not drain

If your GE Washer is like mine all you need to remove the front is a 2 inch putty knife. Insert it in the seam between the top and front panel about 6 inches from the corner. You will find a clip there. Push the clip backwards with the putty knife while pulling gently on the corner of the front panel, the clip will come loose and the front panel will come froward on that corner. Repeat the procedure on the other side and the front panel will come right off. To put the panel back on just insert the bottom of the panel in the bottom clips and snap the top right back into place. This makes access to the inside of your GE washer a breeze. Before doing this always disconnect your electrical plug.
