Removed about 8 screws. (Needed a "star" screwdriver for the screws.) Pulled the front panel off. It was stuck in places to the foam sound deadening instulation sheet, but taking the putty knife and sliding between insulation and old front worked pretty well. A couple of large pieces of foam cracked off, but once the front was off, I just used duct take and put them back together, then put on new front. One thought....if you want the old nameplate, which in my case was "KitchenAide" it would have been best to lay the old front on top of the new front to see where the holes needed to be drilled in the new front, and put the branded plate on before installing the new front. The name plate had two screws as part of the molded nameplate, which passed through the front and were held on with two friction nuts on the "inside" of the front. It isn't really needed, but it breaks up the solid front and looks nice. However, in my case, I didn't think to do that. So.....I cut the screws off with a hacksaw, smoothed the back with a file, and used epoxy to glue it on the new front once it was on. The epoxy seems to be holding just fine.
