Theres two spring clips about 2 in from each corner, use a flat screwdriver and push in at the clips , now lift the top , remove the screws that hold the front on , now you should be able to clean out the lint.

I removed the torque screws in the front but there is something holding it in place still. I am affraid of breaking the lint trap
Expert:  John replied 6 years ago.
All it shows are the two clips at the bottom if the screws are taken out that hold the front on you should be able to remove the front.you can clean the lint once the front is removed.

Expert:  John replied 6 years ago.
