I located a video on youtube.com free of charge. I removed the lint screen, and removed the two screws located in the lint screen housing. Then I pryed the top off near the front of the dryer, which has two clips. Then I remove the two screws locate on the top of the front panel, but they are located on the inside. I removed the door lid swich by removing the two screws. Lastly, I pulled the front panel outward and pulled up lightly. The front panel was off. The issue I had was the dryer would heat up and then got cool after five minutes. The solution was to replace the coils. Important point is that the coils ohm readings were within specifications, but I did located information on the web that indicated this was a potential solution to the issue, and I replaced the coils even though the resistances were within specification. Total cost $22.95 plus tax.

Removing the lower front panel would help immensly in determing where the leak is coming from. Most commonly, the leak is caused by the door bellow (gray rubber boot) leaking. If you pull back the rubber folds in the door seal and inspect around the perimeter, you may find that it has become ripped or torn. This is normal as they do wear out with age. If you determine the door bellow to be leaking you will need to replace it. The following link explains:
The instructions to remove the lower panel are included in the link I provided. Another common symptom of a leaking bellow is the front counter weight on the drum will be wet.
If the bellow is intact, with no obvious signs of holes, check the water inlet tube that is located on the left hand side of the bellow to ensure it is fully inserted through the bellow properly. The inlet tube, if not inserted through the rubber correctly, will cause the water to run behind it and out the bottom of the cabinet. Push the tube through the rubber until it reaches the flange on the inlet tube.
Also check the following:
1. Check the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump.
2. Make sure the drain pump reservoir cap is secure and not leaking.
3. Check the along the seam of the wash tub as well. There is a tub gasket that holds the two halves of the tub together that can develop leaks.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
