Customer Question

Hi! I literally just had a whirlpool dishwasher installed and forgot to ask the technician a question. I have two big dogs - who shed alot. With the old dishwasher I had, the fur would get caught under the small panel below the door., so we had to remove it and sweep so it wasn't a fire hazard. How do I remove the panel on this dishwasher? The model number is *****
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: it's brand new - and the model number is ***** - Serial number F71302710
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: well - if it's just lifting the panel I will? Just to sweep under it
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I think that's it....

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

on the outside of the very bottom panel / toe plate you will see two black nylon panel retainers one on the left and right side that look like the image below:

just loosen those and the panel will pull off.
