You have to remove the back bottom skirt from television in order to get to the screws for the front bottom panel. When the front bottom panel is removed there will be more screws visible, for front screen. After an afternoon of trying to get it apart, just to clean the mirror on ours, we finally got it.

Removal of rear door lift hatch interior plastic panel on a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan to push out dent in metal door from the inside.


The rear door panel is secured to the door using screws and clips. The screws will be in the handle used to close the door and there may be plastic plugs in the handle hiding the screws. Once these screws are removed, the handle will come off. Look for any more screws along the panel. If there are more, they will be visible. Once the screws are removed, pull on the panel to release the clips that secure it to the door. These clips will require some force to release them and will make a snap/pop sound once released. You may have to put a screwdriver/wedge between the panel and door to start the process of releasing the clips

My LG is a few years old, Model WM1832CW and seems to work in all modes except rinse. It just started this morning and sounds like its slipping and grinding and won't pump the water out. any suggestions....


Replace the pump motor. On your model, it can be done without removing the front panel. Open access door at bottom left of front panel. drain water out small hose. remove screw from plastic recess and use putty knife at side of recess to remove plastic recess. remove screw holding pump. pull machine out 2 feet from wall and tilt it back to rest back edge against wall. depress plastic tab in base to release pump. remove hoses and unplug electrical connection to pump. remove 3 screws holding pump motor to pump housing. install new pump motor and re-assemble.

Cant remove door pannel on driver side 04 gmc seirra


1. Remove the door handle bezel.

2. Insert a flat-bladed tool between the door handle bezel and the trim panel in order to release the handle bezel tab retainers.

3. Remove the door trim panel upper extension.

4. Release the upper extension by pulling outward on the front edge in order to release the upper retainer clips.

5. Remove the upper extension from the trim panel by lifting up and out.

6. Using a suitable flat bladed tool, gently pry the manual lock lever from the door trim panel. Remove the trim panel screw.
*Remove the screw (2) from within the opening where the manual door lock lever resides.
*Remove the screw (3) from the opening in front of the armrest.
*Remove the screw located beneath the map pocket, if equipped.

7. Carefully slide the trim panel up in order to release the retainers from the door. Disconnect the electrical connectors.

Note: the top part of the door panel is not separate from the bottom. The "upper extension" is just the small triangle piece directly behind the mirror on the interior.

Simplified instructions
Remove the bezel around the door handle.
Pry out the manual lock.
Remove the 3 or 4 screws depending on options
Slide the door panel up off of the engagement tabs.

On an LG 2277 washer. I try to start a load. I get error message: "de"- door not closed. It looks to me that there must a switch to sense if the door is closed. Where is this switch located and how do you...


The switch is behind the front panel - to remove it, unplug the machine and:

1. Open the panel where the drain filter is (lower left side of the front panel)
2. Remove screw visible inside this area and remove the white molded plastic - also remove the screw behind that plastic.
3. Open the washer door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door gasket. Carefully pull the door gasket away from the panel push inside and then reclose the door.
4. Remove the detergent drawer and the two screws visible behind it.
5. Pull the top of the electronics panel away from the machine and lift up - place on top of machine or hook it out of the way
6 Remove the 4 screws that are visible holding the front panel to the machine. Left the entire front panel up about 2 inches and swing to the right

The wire connecting the panel to the machine on the right leads to the switch and door lock mechanism

Lg front load washer leaking from bottom of machine


I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)
  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
  3. Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
  4. If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
  5. Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
  6. Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
  7. Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
  8. Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
  9. Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
  10. Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
  11. Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
  12. There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
  13. There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
  14. Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order
