You have to remove the front panel first to access the clip that holds the front of the top down. Instructions:
crosstip medium screwdriver
1/4 inch socket
5/15 inch socket
a. Remove the door and opposite side door plugs (crosstip screws)
b. Remove the front panel - this exposes sheet metal bolts (5/16 inch) some with crosstip on left and right of unit. Set panel aside (right side) WITHOUT unplugging wires
c. Unscrew all the exposed bolts.
d. Top bolts left and right secure the unpainted metal hooks which secures the top of dryer. Unscrew these bolts and wiggle the metal retainer hooks off. Lift top and support to create 6 inch gap in the front (top unit hinges in back and has electrical connections - do NOT disconnect wires)
e. Release belt from pulley by reaching left and under drum (this is out of sight)
f. gently lift out drum and belt and set aside

When you open the door of the dryer you will find screws on each side. First remove the screws that hold the door on, then move to the next side. Once the screws are out you should be able to lift the front panel right off. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help.

The top panel can be lifted only after the front panel is removed. Open the door and remove the four screws located vertically along the
inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to
the front shroud assembly.
Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.
The top panel is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top panel lip.
Open the door then lift the front of the top panel and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.
Reinstall the top panel and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

SOURCE: how do i access the
yes it can be accessed from the front panel as it is located on the back right inside of the dryer.
1) unplug dryer
2) open door remove screws
3) with a flat tip screw driver pry gently up on the top corners it will pop
4) move front panel forward and disconnect door switch
5) sit panel aside
6) lift top lid of dryer 90 degrees it has clip/hinged on back
7) look to the right back of dryer, it looks like a spring in a metal box disconnect and replace.
Hope this helps Tim

Remove the power cord from the wall outlet.
Open the dryer door. Remove the screws located along the inside of the doorway with the Phillips screwdriver.
3Pull the top part of the front panel away from the MDE5500AY dryer to disconnect it. Lift the front panel up to disconnect it from the metal clips on the dryer cabinet.
Unplug the wire connector leading to the door switch.
Unscrew and remove the four screws connecting the front panel to the rest of the cabinet. Lift the front panel up and away from the dryer to remove it.
Pull the idler pulley toward the left to relieve tension in the belt. Slide the belt off of the idler pulley and the Neptune dryer drum.
Route the new dryer belt around the drum and along the pulley system. Release the idler pulley to restore proper tension in the belt. Rotate the drum to ensure the belt is positioned properly.
Replace the front panel onto the dryer cabinet. Replace the four screws that connect the front panel to the cabinet of the MDE500AY dryer.
Plug the wire connector into the door switch assembly. Lower the front panel down into its original position.
Replace the screws along the inside of the doorway.
