Question about LG WM0642H Front Load

1 Answer

LG WM0642H* I stupidly removed the two screws (thinking I'd reverse the front-loading door) at the point where the door latches to the housing. Something fell. A strike plate of some kind? Anyway, I cannot get to it now. How do I access the interior to retrieve the missing piece?
