If it is that old, look at the bottom of the front panel, about three inches off the floor for a phillips head screw on each side. Remove the screws, swing the front panel up a bit and unhook it from top and set to the side. Now, you can remove the screws holding the top onto the side panels and swing the top back.

Maytag bravos gas dryer exhaust belt came off

Probably because the exhaust ducting is clogged. A common problem on these.
Pop the top just like the old models and remove the front then the shroud and then clean her up.

push it back with the putty knife
when both have been popped, the top will pop open
onecs inside you will see two 5/16 bolts holding the front on
2 things, remember how the tumbler sits on the back of the door, for reinstall
unplug before you open

The on line instruction for replacing Maytag dryer belts say " insert a flat screw driver under the top panel and it will come off. Problem is: on my older model, there are two large metal screws...

My 1955 edition of the Maytag top popped off because it used the spring clamps you refer to. If there are screws there, you will have to remove them. Once the top is up, you will see how to remove the front. If you can get this far, the rest of the job will become self evident (I think) .If you need more help, let me know

Maytag electic dryer noise

First, pop up the top of the dryer -- use a large slotted screwdriver under each corner of the top. There will be screws holding the front of the dryer -- take these out and take the front off. The squealing is coming from roller bushings which need lubricating. Apply machine oil to all the axles/bushings -- this most likely will stop the squealing -- and don't forget to unplug it first.
