Hi,

Had what seems like a pump malfunction during a wash cycle and heard a scraping noise from an object under the inner tub basket. Checked the pump and there was no obstruction but saw a paper clip in the outer tub. Got the agitator removed but I'm not familiar and couldn't find any info on lifting the top panel off on this particular model so I can remove the inner tub basket to get the paper clip out.
Washer has two hex screws on the front and the outer tub rods seem to be connected to the top panel.
Thanks for your help.

Correction, those are torx screws.
I assume I need to take those off? I'll have to get some torx bits or wrenches in that case. I wish this was like most older washers or at least like the few I have seen in the past. Ugh. And I know this washer has a tricky tub basket to lift out so I may use the scissor jack and 2×4 trick to lift it out. Any tips on getting it back in? Thanks.
