Customer Question
I cannot find a...

I cannot find a video to remove the front cover of my Whirlpool WED9600TWO dryer, all them I find is not the same as mine and its enough different cannot figure out?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I need to replace drum roller from all i have read, thought would be a semi-simple task, and if i could figure out the next step after taking top cover off I think it might be?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I was planning too.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I just cannot figure out how to get the front panel started after getting top panel off? there are not plastic clips and its in separate pieces

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

The video below shows how to replace the heating element in a similar model, (the same build as yours). I know you don't need to replace the heating element but the video shows how to disassemble the dryer and remove the tub which is what you are trying to do.

Ok I did not say anything about the model number you listed. The model number you gave me was a good model number, the video I sent shows how to disassemble it to remove the tub, so not sure what you meant by your reply "That is the EXACT MODEL FROM THE LABEL "

On your model there are screws that hold the interface in. See number 11 in the diagram at the link below. The console is attached to that metal mounting plate and comes up with it. Once those are removed, lift the console up and off to set aside. The rest of the front removal is the same as in that video.
