I ended up physicaly breaking the foam to gain access to change the part. It was also quite hard to align the door halves and foam to put the door back together. Lots of foam to clean up on completion. If it were not for this foam feature the job would have been much quicker. Also the video let you to believe than the outer and inner door halves were one piece each and with htis machine this is not so. The control panel being on the top outside of the door also caused confusion especially in comparison with the simplicity that was shown in the video. May not have done this project myself if I had known the complications that were to come up verces to simple video.
