Finding gas burner access to Whirlpool WGD9400 dryer

I just purchased a new Whirlpool WGD9400VE1 gas dryer. It shipped for use with natural gas. I need to convert the burner fittings so it can burn liquid propane.

I'm sure I can install the 8576846A kit. I just need to know how to get at the burner without tearing up the dryer's exterior.

There are 4" circular indents (look like knockouts, though really solid) on the lower rear sides of the dryer. I don't think those are the items to remove to access the burner.

Any hint(s) on how to access the burner or a web site that might enlighten me?

Many thanks.

Bingo, David.
4 screws removed and got the panel off.
Thank you very much.

I just hope I plugged in the white-blue-black wire connector going to maybe a relay which is on the end closest to the front of the dryer. I removed it to put in the blocking pin and didn't check which way it came off, thinking it would only clip on one way.
