Unplug your GE Washing machine
This may sound very logical but some of us forget to this. This is extremely important as you can harm yourself given the tools you are using for this purpose. The current flowing through the washing machine may hurt you so it is vital to take precautionary measures before you start your work. Unplug the switch of the GE washing machine before you start to take the front off.
Use the knife
You can use a variety of tools for this purpose but the putty knife is a relatively better option. The thinness of the knife will help you in reaching the clips which you may not be successful if you use a screw driver for instance.
Pull the clips with the knife
The next thing you need to do is to locate the clips of the front panel in the washing machine and pull them off. This will release the front panel so that you can pull it out. However, you need to be careful doing this as you may harm yourself or you can break the clips if more force than usual is applied.
Pull out the front panel
Once the clips are released, you can pull out the front panel of the washing machine. Make sure you do this carefully as doing your work quickly may break the clips of the panel.
