FIXED Kenmore 90 Series Washer lint filter removal

I have a Kenmore 90 Series washing machine. I removed the tub to clean it and scraped off a ton of moldy soap scum from the inner and outer baskets. There's a large, round, plastic lint filter attached under the inner basket with four tabs. The disc has comb teeth all round the edge (see photo in the linked post below). It seems this part is unavailable and there are no instructions for replacing it. I need to figure out how to remove it safely to clean it. The tabs are require a wedge to pry open, so getting all four of them open at the same time seems impossible. Any tips on getting the filter off without breaking it? I want to clean it and reattach it.

This post includes a photo of the filter:
Its been more than 20 years since I removed that old style one, so I can't remember, sorry

But it seems like this is what I did too--->Read post #8 and #9 here:
Oh wait, your that same person in that other thread. LOL

Good job getting it off.(y)
