Yes, I removed the bleach dispenser to clean it. I closed the compartment and now I cannot open it again to replace the bleach dispenser and put detergent into the cup.

The entire compartment will not open,

Appliance Technician: william, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

Ok you should be able to pop the top there should be 2-3 screws in the back take top off and you should see this big plastic box take off what you need to and jiggle it around until you get this out.

I was able to Contact Best Buy and my warranty is still good. They informed me that the only way to get the part out was to break it out and replace the part. They will do this fror me next week,

Thankyou.
