For the model dryer you have listed, the dryer cabinet can be removed for cleaning by following these steps:
1. UNPLUG the dryer and remove the lint screen.
2. Remove the two screws that were under the lint screen and lift the top panel.
3. Unplug the door switch connector plug and any ground wire that may be installed on the casing.
4. Locate the two screws that hold the front panel in place. There should be one screw on each side in the cabinet interior.
5. With the door shut, lean against the front panel and remove the two screws that hold it in place. Once the screws are removed, grasp the front panel at the top center and lift straight up to remove.
You should now have complete access to the dryer interior. Once you have completed your inspection and cleaning of the dryer interior re-install the dryer front panel by holding it as you did previously. Line up the holes on the inside bottom edge of the front panel with the small mounting cleats on the front edge of the side panels. This can be done by yourself, but an assistant may make it easier. Once you have the front panel in place, lean against it to hold it in place and install the mounting screws.
NOTE: Don't forget to reconnect the grounding wire and door switch connector plug. Without the door switch connected, the dryer will not run. Lower the top panel back in place and reinstall the two screws.
NOTE: Placing a piece of duct tape over the dryer vent chute will help safeguard against dropping anything down in the blower fan assembly. If you drop any screws down the chute, you will need to remove the dryer back panel to retrieve them. If you have any questions about this repair, or if the model number is different, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
Remove water collection bucket. Remove two screws now visible (previously covered by top edge of bucket). Front panel now has to be flexed a bit on the side to release it from the metal side panels, near the lower portion of the front panel, then panel swings up and un-hooks from top.
The switch on the outer plastic front panel is usually just a plastic peice with a spring, it pushes the button in on the inside metal housing of the computer case, therefore not really much to worry about, you just need to remove the front panel to free up the plastic so it dose'nt get stuck in the hole, this is normally just caused through dust or resadue build up from your fingers when turning the computer on and off. To get the front panel off you will have to remove the side panel, have a look to see if there any screws holding the front panel on, if not then it is just held on by expansion clips that expand with inserted into the metal houses of the case, just gentle ease away from the inner housing. When you have removed the front panel just fiddle with the switch a bit and try to free it up, whilst the front panel is off you could try pressing the button on the front metal housing to ensure the computer does turn on. when you have done this just replace the front panel and and put the case back together and you should have solved the sticky switch problem.
I just did this one myself, You've done most of the hard work already.Be sure your holding tank is out and not in the way.Double check the down front screws are still out since you sent in you question. Now tweak the front section (the business end) a little up, down, back and forth to help break the suction on the seal. Grab the clear plastic front piece-just the front lip near the floor and gently lift up. If it doesn't come up easily try tweaking it or running water through it to break the seal of whatever detritus is inside which is acting like a paste and holding it together.
If lint has gotten past the lint trap, you can attempt to use a brush just like the previous poster suggested. If that doesn't work you'll have to disassemble the unit. You only need to lift the top up and remove two screws on each side that connects the front to the side panels. The front should then swivel outward. Be sure to detach the door switch and wire guide from the front panel before completely removing it. You can then lift the front panel up and away. You'll need to clean the opening in the bottom of the front panel and also the entrance to the blower.
I being a previous repairman, would not suggest to go ahead with it, the drum is a tough thing to work with and even I woud sooner live with the noise than go get it out,the drum is supported by a rear bearing that should not be effected by a marble,< best advice for you to try is unplug unit and tip forward until drum is level, with door open and shake drum to try to get it to fall into drain hose> if marble moves freely between drum and tub this will work,< the drain has a catch to prevent it from getting to pump. If you succeed at this then remove lower panel below door and there is a removable cap on drain to clean it out, remove cap< twisting it > and retreive marble. if marble doesn't move freely damage to unit may happen due to constricting movement of drum,< call repairman because it will require complete disassembly of the unit and not inexpensive either.
Not sure if this machine is similar to the WM2277, but here is the procedure for that - my leak was in the "baffels" hose that connects the drum to the drain pump:
1. Drain the machine - pry the panel at the front left lower corner to get access to a stoppered tube. drain as much water from here as possible. 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 (there is a wire connecting the door to the machine on the right)
