Question about Washing Machines
There' s three reasons I can think of for removing a facia plate.
1- replacing a damaged original
2- accessing the control module
3-changing the language
On older models you may have to unplug the unit and remove the top to access screws that hold the facia housing. Then remove the housing to access the facia.
On newer models the screws were placed under the facia so the techs' don't have to remove the top.
Use a plastic paint scraper thin enough to get in between the facia and the housing. Pick a spot along the top or bottom and push straight into the gap. You can only go in about 1 mm until you stop. While still holding pressure inward pry the tool's back end away from the facia - up if your in the top edge or down if your in the bottom edge, until you access the inner step of the housing. Once your tool slips past the step, slide the tool left or right to find the locking tabs and pop them open. The facia will bend a bit. Watch that you don't drop it or it may scratch. The first is the hardest so be vigilant.
If you bought a new Miele Facia panel you should call their customer service support team. That's what they are for. They will be glad to guide you by telephone.
If your just curious to see what's underneath don't bother, unless you like looking at mounting screws for the plastic housing.
