Disconnect the power cord. There is either two screws, one at each front corner, holding the control panel in place or hidden clips. 1. If you see the two screws remove them. If no screws are visible you have a clip at each front corner of the control panel. The best tool to use to unhook these clips is a putty knife. Push the putty knife between the machine top and the control panel at either outer corner. You will feel a spring tension. Push firmly, but not to forcefully toward the back. When the spring releases the corner will lift easily. Repeat at the other corner. 2. Now, if there was two screws holding the panel, remove the two screws at the top on the back of the control panel. If just clips, simply and carefully roll the control panel over the back. 3. Unplug the wire that connects the control panel to the top. Stop here and take note as to how the case connects to the back panel. There is an aligner there that will be your hardest part to deal with later. This will help when reassembling. 4. OK, Put a slotted screw driver into the clips at the back corners on the top and release them, once again take note to their positioning. The outer case hooks under the front of the frame and the sides have a slot that goes over a pin near the back of the frame side. (Front under, sides on top of frame)Tilt the case up on back and pull forward. Congrats you are there. Make needed repair and reassemble reversing procedure. Allow 30 to 45 minutes for the first removal. Good luck.

How to take the outer door skin off


If you take off the outer door skin you will have to replace it. They are folded the welded around the inner frame. Generally a door skin removal tool is used to cut/grind the skin off. There are several youtube videos on this process as it is difficult to explain step by step.

Can I safely use my washer if I hear something metal scraping during spin cycle?


You can, but I wouldn't. The outer skin of the drum is made of plastic. If it is a coin, it could dislodge, get caught again in mid spin and punch a hole straight through the plastic.

Get a flashlight and look between the seal and the outer drum when you open the door.

2006 F-150 DOOR SKIN REMOVAL


If you're referring to the outer skin, you have to drill out the pinch welds and bend the outer skin away from the inner structure. You should see the pinch welds on the inside of the door. Your best bet is to remove the door altogether and place it on a couple of saw horses face down to drill the welds off.
