Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about having to remove the mouse from the drain pan. To access the drain pan, the unit will need to be tilted backward. Remove everything inside the cabinet and when the unit is tilted back, you will be able to remove the screws holding the drain pan in place. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
