ok facing the drier front open thee door and remove the bolts around the door panel there are four of them two on each side then grasp the front about 3 inches down on either side to disengage the side retain clips tilt the panel back toward you and lift it up to disengage the bottom clips remove the front panel and if you need to lift the top remove the screws on the hooks on either side at the top and take the hooks off then you can lift the top that should give you plenty of access to do what you need to do

take a screwdriver and push it in below the door at the top of the bottom panel, near each end of the panel, there is a springclip to pry on that that releases the panel and it will fold out and then lift off. then you can get access by removing a few screws.
BE SURE TO UNPLUG BEFORE WORKING ON IT.

Now on to your problem. While I don't know what model of maytag atlantis you have, these are the general guidelines for cleaning out under the lint screen area. The easiest approach is to buy a vaccume extension availible from appliance parts stores and some hardware stores. I have even seen a clean out kit for sale at bed, bath and beyond. Basically you fit the vaccume extension on to the end of you vaccume and feed it down to the area under the lint screen. To do a more efficent cleaning you would need to dis-assmble your dryer. If you can supply the model number located just inside the door, I could get you a step by step tear down to get to it from the inside.

Unplug first with a straight blade screwdriver, pry up on the top of the dryer where the front wall of the dryer and the top meet. there are 2 screws 1 on each side inside the dryer where the sides and front meet, remove them and unhook the wires from the door switch. the whole front will now pull out and up, now open the door remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the door opening and the whole lint tray will pull out. sounds like a lot but only takes about 5 minutes.

If the drying problem is caused by poor venting/air circulation, then things probably won't improve until that situation is remedied. Check out the link I am attaching. It contains dryer venting requirements. Hope this helped and I'm sorry for your trouble. Best wishes.

Testimonial: "Good info. System working okay now. I put 12 feet of flex pipe and then 25 feet of foil. The a/c ductwork prevents getting in to replace from dryer"
