Door handle latch broken / front panel broken
Maytag repair man 1 year ago caused most of the damage after I took the front cover off - the repairman broke off most of the screws holding the front panel in place leaving me to replace the front assembly.
The repair was easy - save yourself and do it yourself vs paying someone alot of money to only make it worse in the long run...
