I'm trying to remove the front cover of my new GE dryer (dcvh640...). Wife dropped a paper towel while cleaning the lint trap and it fell in. Tried to get it blown out by turning dryer on and removing the flex exhaust. I remove the two screws near the floor, however the cover seems to be hinged or there are another set of screws. I also remove the plastic 2in cover plate that sits behind the top of the electrical dials. Did not want to force anthing. Is there a trick or method to remove this so that I can look down the 4in exhaust pipe that runs down the middle.
Seems like GE would have included a schematic or breakaway so that one could clean out all the lint that gets inside the motor area or starter. I tried contacting the GE online with no luck. Anyone know the answer. My other choice is the leave it in and at some time, the towel may break apart and blow out. I did check outside for the one sheet paper.
Send me a pic too....Thanks
