Hello I am Appliance Guru, If you have the back screws off check under the back edge of the panel for any other screws and make sure you have them removed if so these panels often get stuck hard on the units....If you have a RUBBER glove or gloves put them on and you need to simply strike the top of the unit hard straight back from both sides and it will slide back and off sometimes they can get really stuck, but it will slide back with applied force the rubber gloves will give you the grip you need. All I ask is please use the star rating system at the top of your page before leaving thanks

I have unscrewed the 3 screws in the back, and hit the top from the front towards the back with a hammer. and it did not push back.

Take a picture of the back edge for me so I can see it to make sure you have everything removed
