I'm not too familiar with the model but you either have screws that are just above the door (open the door first) or two metal tabs in the front that hold the top on the dryer. The two metal tabs can be seen if you take a flashlight and look where the top meets the front about 8" from each side roughly. A flatblade screwdriver inserted at the top of these fasteners will release them from the top. Next have a 5/16 nut driver to remove the two screws on each side holding the front onto the sides. There may be screws at the bottom as well. You may not have to remove the front at all. Also HAVE THE POWER DISCONNECTED! Don't want ya to get fried. Remove the leads from the door switch on the right and remove.
