This article extends the nonparametric EM (npEM) algorithm of Benaglia et al. (2009a) and describes a method to select the bandwidths used in this extended algorithm. The extension allows for a distinct bandwidth for each mixture component and each block of conditionally independent and identically distributed repeated measures, and the bandwidth selection method is a generalization of Silverman's rule of thumb.
