I have a Whirlpool GEW9868 series (circa 2001) dryer. The door pops
open after a few minutes of drying time.
It feels like a latch on one side has either broken or come loose from
its support inside the front panel.
I checked the Whirlpool web site, but found no assembly instructions
for this kind of dryer. Does anyone know how to remove the front panel
from this kind of dryer?
Not familiar with this particular dryer, but most have two screws
along the bottom front. Remove the screws, pull out at the bottom.
The panel will pivot on little brackets at the top.
Unplug the dryer first. You will probably have to disconnect the door
switch to completely remove the front panel.
