Removing the bottom front panel from my duet washer

How do I remove the bottom front panel from my whirlpool duet washing machine? I cannot locate any screws to remove. When I pry it a little I can see where it is stuck, but still can't find where to release it.

Thanks for you help!

I have a F6 code problem with my Whirlpool Duet FL Washer, any ideas?

F6 is an issue with the motor drive tachometer. Most often this is caused by poor connections at the machine control or motor controller. Locate the main machine control by removing the top panel and the motor control by removing the rear panel. Remove each connector, ONE AT A TIME, and reinstall. If this does not work, you likely have a faulty control.

Washer is flashing f2

F2 on a Whirlpool Duet means their is a problem with the Drain Pump or Drain Pump Filter. The Drain Pump and Filter are located at the bottom of the Washing machine. You must remove the front, bottom panel to gain access to the Drain Pump and Filter. Disconnect the Filter and Drain Hoses and clear them out. If they are clear, you may need to replace your Drain Pump.

F21 clogged line on a new Duet Sport less than a year old???

Hi, regarding the F21 Error on the Front End Whirlpool Duet, I was able to resolve the problem with the instructions from here, just want to stress cleaning out the filter by removing the front panel. Very easy and the error code is now gone. (screws are underneath front panel at bottom, remove stacker drawer for easy access, remove screws, pull panel off, remove the filter cap, turn to the left and pull out-that's where you will locate the clog.

If the model number is correct, the Motor Control Unit (MCU) is located in the bottom of the washer on the right hand side (as viewed from the front). You can access the MCU by removing the lower toe panel under the door, or by removing the back panel of the washer.

The access screws for the toe panel are under the bottom front edge of the washer. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access (a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

The removal of the back panel should be self explanatory. Just remove the screws around the entire perimeter of the back panel and remove.

HINT: It may be easier to remove the front and back panels to have full access to the MCU from both sides.

The following websites have excellent exploded view parts diagrams of your washer to assist you in locating and properly identifying the components of your appliance:

The MCU is listed as item 1 under the "Pump and Motor Parts" section.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

My Whirlpool duet washer is not draining. I am

If you hear the pump running and not draining, then take the toe panel off. Should be 3 1/4" screws on bottom. Remove the "coin catch". It looks like a BIG screw and it's white. Turn counterclockwise. There may be a sock, change ect...clogging it up. Dump it out and run machine. Have towel or bucket ready when removing coin catch.
