Those are them at the bottom. I think there are 3, one on each side and one in the middle then the kick plate pulls down.

Whirlpool front loader duet hd washer gets stuck in the wash cycle with the error code of F02. What is F02 mean?

Whirlpool Duet front-load washer F02 usually means it is taking over 8 minutes for the washer to sense that the rinse or wash water has drained, which either means that the drain/filter is clogged or the pressure switch/tube is clogged (causing both the washer to over-fill with water and not sensing that water has drained).

To clear out the drain/filter, tilt the washer backwards a little for easier to the kick-plate and support the front bottom with a wood block or similar, remove the front kick-plate's (3) retaining screws and swing the kick-plate up out of the way. The filter drain is behind the white knob in the center, be prepared with something to catch any remaining water and lots of towels to soak up any spills, and turn the knob counter-clockwise to remove the filter.

F02 error on whirlpool front load washer. How do you open the kick panel?

Depending upon what model you have, most kick plates are removed by taking the 3 or 4 (1/4 inch or torque) screws out located underneath the kick plate. Note that not all front load washers have a kick plate so be sure that there is a prominent gap between the upper most region and the small lower region being the kick plate.

Take off whirlpool duet front panel for filter

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.

During the final spin cycle, our front loading whirlpool is making a really loud noise - it sounds like a train is going through the house. It is in the basement on a concrete floor.

If the washer is brand new, look on the back panel and make sure the 4 transportation bolts have been removed. The bolts should be roemoved completely - they are only necessary to protect the washer during transportation.

If the bolts are removed, adjust the front two legs to be 1/4 inch higher than the back two. That 1/4 inch will balance the washer during the spin cycle, perfectly.

I have a whirlpool duet gas dryer. how do I open

1. Unplug the unit while servicing inside.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9400PWO, Front Panel comes off

There are no fasteners that I know of. I've worked on this model numerous times and have never seen any. There should be screws holding the front panel in place. Remove the lower panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Placing a block of wood under the bottom of the frame to elevate the front feet of the washer off the floor will make it easier to access the screws. The washer is heavy so it may take two people to do this. DO NOT push on the door or the control panel. Use the facing of the washer front panel for leverage. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. There should be a mounting screws for the front panel on each side of the washer. Make sure the screws are present and that they are tight. You may just have a screw loose (no pun intended). I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you need further assistance.
