Default hotpoint washing machine: how do I remove front panel?

I have a Hotpoint 9536 which I bought in 1994.
Does anyone know how to remove the front panel - with the door in it.
Thanks
Paul

Take the top off (two screws at back, then slide, can't remember if it's
forward or backwards).

Remove soap tray (pulls straight out but can be a struggle) and remove
four screws beneath on plastic fascia. Loosend screw hold on control
knob (convenient hole in top edge). Remove fascia taking care with
plastic clips that hold indicator neons.

Remove screws at top and bottom of front panel. It will now pull away
but won't go far until you remove the wire ring that holds the door
seal. To do that, open door and prise the plastic clip towards you (it
fits over a pin). It will come in two and release the wire. WARNING:
this wire fitting seems to vary so try to check before applying force!

Bob is spot on here, but another warning - that clip has a tendency to ping
across the room & get lost! If that happens let me know - I bought a spare,
then found the original, then bought a new machine!
