The videos make it look simple...remove the top, disengage the tabs holding the top edge of the control panel, and rotate it away to remove from the dryer. But there's something retaining the bottom edge that prevents it from lifting free. Two grey tabs inserted in two sheet metal slots won't disengage, and I'm afraid I'll break them if I force it. There's an identical post here:
bsaucer was advised just to pull harder on it and it'd come loose. He eventually broke the tabs. There MUST be something else holding the bottom center of the control panel in place?! I don't want to break the tabs off as bsaucer did. There must be a trick other than just forcing it. HELP!!!!!!I need to disassemble this dryer to repair it, but I can't get the front user panel off. I can pull the upper clips off the top, but there are two lower plastic clips that are hooked into metal holes, and I don't want to break them. They are in the middle about two inches apart or less.
