Just for fun I removed the 2 screws on bottom of the washer. This machine was missing the pigtail, (I put a new cord on also, 4 foot 30 amp 3 prong) so I suspect Larry got it from an auction at the Wings of life. You yank downwards a hair then remove the panel to get to the washer innards. I also put a new belt on the dryer. Then it got dark on me. Tomorrow I take this puppy on a test run.
