26U, pump

I know the water pump is under the closet. Does anyone know if the access is by removing the blank panel on the front or lifting the closet floor up?
I checked the parts manual and it's vague.

If it's the front, how is the panel held in place? Velcro?

Pull the furnace outlet panel under the closet straight out (there are two nonlocking catches); the pump is just inside to the left. The furnace hose can be detached to access.

Thanks! Just what I needed to know.

If you have twin beds, full pump access is really nice because you just take off the plywood panel the mattress sits on. You can get to the front of the pump from the furnace vent panel, and in a pinch can swap the pump that way but your back and arms will thank you if you go in from the top. This MAY also be an option w/ the queen but I don't know that for a fact.

I have the queen, but I don't think there's access from under the bed. I'll pop the vent panel off and see what it looks like there. I'll probably swap the pump, then rebuild the old unit as a spare. I think it's the diaphragm, because it started doing the 1/4 second "brrrp" every 20 seconds or so. I tried all the Ninja Mind tricks to see if it was just some debris, but no joy.
Here's the parts manual diagram. If I'm reading it right the wardrobe floor is screwed to the sides, the the access is in Panel #16. I think the clips are shown but not identified.
