My washer is leaking during the fill cycle.  I need to find out how to disassemble it so that I can troubleshoot the problem.  Looks to me that the rear panel should just lift up and off, but after removing the top and bottom screws and aligning the bottom clip, its not moving easily.  I don't want to force anything so I'm looking for some help.

Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated.

First of all put all the screws back that you took out. This machine is serviced from the front.Standing in front of the machine you will need to insert a putty knife under the front of the left and right side control panel end caps and push straight back. Do one side at a time..you may have to push pretty hard and you should feel the clip spring back...at that time you can pull that side of the control panel forward and up. Repeat on the other side. Roll the control panel back and remove the 2 gold clips that hold the cabinet to the back wall of the machine. unplug the 3 wire harness that go to the lid switch. At this point you can lean the entire cabinet forward and off to service.

Thanks! Got it apart and no leaks so I'm thinking it was a misalignment between the filler spout and tub. Will reassemble and see what happens.
