You only need to gain access to the drum which is pretty easy.

  1. Unplug the dryer or turn breaker off.
  2. Remove the lint filter.
  3. Remove the two screws from under the lint filter.
  4. Pull the entire top of the dryer forward to release the front retaining clips and the top will hinge up.
  5. Rotate the drum to the left only to access the screws at the top outside of the drum for removal of each drum baffle.
