If the machine was made AFTER Jan. 1, 1995, than there are two "squeeze" point on the bottom of the front panel one is on the left and one is on the right you have to "squeeze" these points to loosen the panel, than on the top of the panel there are two clips that hold the panel from the top.

Ge front load washer do not drain


Disconnect power to machine. Remove bottom front panel by removing one screw from each lower corner of panel. Have a few old towels ready to catch water, and remove clamp at pump inlet. Fish out all the coins or other objects from the rubber boot pump inlet. Reassemble and test with the panel off first. If all OK and no leaks, replace panel.
