Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
Hi and welcome...
You don't want to pry on anything, that top is secured by hooks and you have to do some dis-assembly to get the top open.
1. Open the door and remove the two screws that secure each of the door hinges to the dryer frame. With the door open so you can take a hold of it, simply pull the whole door out of the notches that the hinges fit into. (This is a reversable door designed for easy removal by the customer)
2. Remove the two screws on the opposite side of the frame where the door closes to. (along with the two white plastic trim pieces the screws go thru)
3. Once the door is off and the screws are out, pull the entire front panel forward and then it will lift off the tabs at the bottom and you can set it aside.
4. Look up near the top of the cabinet, on each side, for the metal hooks that secure the top to the cabinet. Remove the screw (5/16" nut driver) that secures each hook to the cabinet. Take the hook off, repeat for the other side.
Hope that helps.
