Removed the inside door panel using a power screw driver and torque bits. (5min) Removed the handle and latch assembley from the door. Door and Latch assembly was removable after the inner door panel was removed as 2 of the torque screws that held the panel also held the assembly. (1min) Removed the remaining 7/16 hex head screws that held the power and operators panel assembly to the outer door frame. (2min) Removed the electrical ribbon tape that supplies voltage and electrical functions to the rest of the washer so the panel could be physically be removed as the tape recipitical is attached to the door harness. (1min) Also be aware that the ribbon reciptical requires a small plastic clamp ring to be pulled forward to allow the ribbon to be reinserted. Put back together in reverse order. Use caution not ot over tighten screws that are use in plastic or vinyl materials. (20min)
