Could not get lower panel off. Took all screws out. Lower right corner has a triangle shaped plastic section which the drain pipe comes out of. There is also two plugs with square heads.
Expert:  airheatman replied 5 years ago.
The lower panel should come off without removing the litle corner piece.There should be two screws through the front lower panel and the little corner piece.With upper panel off and all srews removed from lower panel(leaving little corner piece in palce), the front panel should come off.You should be able to leave the left lower panel where tubing comes out, in place or just slightly pulled out as tubing will probably prevent total removal.If panel doesnt want to come off with all screws removed, try sliding a screwdriver blade beteen panel and cabinet as gasket may be stuck to unit.Let me know
