Title: Samsung front load. Is there some trick to getting the control panel off?
Post by: tcarmen on September 06, 2019, 08:57:11 PM
I've done a bunch of these and normally, the panel just tilts forward and lifts off, but the other day I had one where somehow the sheet metal from the cabinet had cut into the plastic tabs and wasn't letting go for anything.

After spending an embarrassingly long time trying to get it off, I finally took out the screws from the top of the lower cabinet front with a flexible screwdriver and took off the whole front (top and bottom together)

Is there some other trick I'm missing? It seems like there should be a better way.
