Expert:  Papatrexas replied 10 months ago.

Or how about a good clear picture of the controls behind the door?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No you can't the water is leaking out on the other side towards the bottom
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I'm thinking the only way to find it is to remove the wood skirt or stand it up and look on the bottom to see what I can see
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I just don't know for sure what to do
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The controls have nothing to do with the leak
Expert:  Papatrexas replied 10 months ago.
