Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.The filter light issue means that the dryer doesn't think it's venting properly as you know. Now this could be a bad thermistor or a faulty control board. you'll need to take the dryer apart and check the resistance of the thermistor which is mounted to the vent on the dryer below the drum. It should be about 10,000 ohms at room temperature and if it's not, you'll want to replace it---otherwise you'll want to order and replace the display control board. Below is a link to the thermistor you're looking for to test. You'll need a multimeter to test resistance and if you don't have it, just replace the thermistor as it's the most likely culprit.

I guess it depends on how handy you are, but as long as you can follow the video it shows you how to take it apart so you should be able to put it back together. You'll just have to use your best judgment if this is over your abilities or not.
Unfortunately not, the unit is really too new for any videos yet.
The front procedure should be the same but to remove the entire top panel with control and display you just slide a putty knife into the front crease below the top panel. There are 2 hidden metal spring clips you push back on and then the top panel will unclip and hinge up and backwards to get out of your way. Then you can work on removing the front panel and such.
Unfortunately I don't have that ability.
You should just need to pop the springs yes. Attached below are the picture of where the springs are.
