To perform this repair do the following:

3.) Remove screws (2) from underside cabinet, remove kick plate from bottom by removing two (2) screws there, pull out washer gently providing slack to drain hose and water line
4.) Gently place washer on side, do not invert or lean on the front side, water may enter control panel and damage it
