Awesome thank you

kell kg - Replica

Thank you. the WM2240CW model lower panel screw is a tough fit for a screw driver. I had to tilt the front panel to access the lower panel screw.

Nathan Lee - Replica

Or you could just flip unit on it's side and access it underneath in about 15 minutes....

Kale Martin - Replica

While this is a speedy way to gain access, it is not what LG recommends. (Not that every manufacturer's recommendation is the only way to go, but in this case...) Front-load units have shipping bolts that are supposed to be installed so they can be shipped or moved to a new location. They hold the tub in place so the suspension can't shift in ways it isn't designed to accommodate (on its side is one of those directions). Several potential issues can arise if they aren't in place. Suspension springs can come loose if the spring retainer isn't fully in place. You might also have a hose pull loose from the tub. The suspension dampers aren't meant to bear the load of the tub and drum laterally. The front tub boot may be pulled loose. So, if you choose this access route, strongly consider installing the shipping bolts, tipping the unit to the rear, and securely supporting it from underneath in that position. Since the temperature sensor is on the bottom of the tub, it can be reached this way.
