Unplug power cord amd remove hoses. Remember or mark hot and cold. Remove screws (2), one on either side of control panel at the lower right and left. At the rear top remove two screws (one from either side). Slide control panel slightly forward (plastic feet attach it to top of washer). Pull up and lay control panel aside (still connected by timer wires.) Rear panel is connected by two spring clips under control panel. Slide screw driver under the middle of each and gently pry up.
