If you already have the front panel off, you just need to remove the belt from the idler by pulling the idler (spring loaded) in the opposite direction that it is pushing on the belt, then remove the top-left screw that is attaching the water dispenser housing, then you can force the plastic flange of the housing to the right and remove the drum by pulling it straight out. It will be slightly against the water dispenser housing as you pull it out but you dont have to continue removing that housing if you dont want to, you should have plenty of room.Thats it! Please let me know if you need more information!
