How do I clean the coils underneath? They are filthy with dust and I can't get in with a vacuum far enough to clean them ?

There are long brushes available that will let you get in at them.
Something like a swiffer would also probably work.
Part number: AP4320046

The way I clean mine is to remove the rear cover and the kick plate.
I then foll the unit over to an open kitchen door and blow it out with a compressor. A leaf blower will also work.
Most of the dust ends up outside.
But you may not be able to do this due to your kitchen setup or there is a high risk that you will tear/scratch you kitchen floor.
