So to remove the top and front panels you start at the lower front panel. There is a seam between the lower front panel and the upper front panel. Inside this seam are 2 hidden metal clips. Use a flat head screwdriver and slide it over top of these 2 hidden metal spring clips and pry down so that the lower front panel can unclip and hinge forward and down. Then you can remove the screws in the bottom right and left of the upper front panel. Next, unplug the the dryer if you haven't already. You'll need a putty knife to hinge the top panel up and backwards. There are 2 more clips between the top panel and the upper front panel about 3-4" from the side walls in the seam. Push back on these clips and the top panel will hinge up and backwards. Now you can remove the screws coming in from the inside of the dryer on the right and left side going into the front panel. Remove these 2 screws and the front panel will pull off. Then you can disconnect the belt and pull the drum out. We are on the honor system here.
