Hi, this is Bryan, heres all the diagrams for your dryer. click here. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5168909 you need to remove the front panel to get at the blower assembly thats probably where the apron is stuck in this. diagram # XXXXX shows the blower assembly. this is what the apron is stuck in. check the rest of the diagrams for screws to remove the front panel and get at this area of machine, hope this helps. thanks, Bryan

ok first you need to pop the top up. look for clips about 2" in from each side where the top meets the front and push the in with a screw driver and lift the top up. then you will see screws to remove the front panel. let me know if you get that far. thanks, XXXXX XXXXX you do this is your control panel on the front or up on the back? its hard to tell by the diagrams, you may need to take screws out of the back along the top back and slide the top off towards the back out from under the front control panel. then you will see screws to take the front off, some of these machines are very hard to work on so bare with me. thanks Bryan
