Question about Maytag Dryers
There is obvious heat damage on the lower left side of the back of the dryer--not quite scorch marks, but the paint has degraded, and the paint has peeled off the wall behind it. I need to get in there to see what's up, but don't know how to lift the top to start opening it.

The choice is yours. Money often motivates these decisions. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the top panel price is roughly $108 to $160 depending on the color you need. White or Bisquit is the cheapest, while Pewter is the most expensive. If you wish to replace it, appliancepartspros.com carries it for the cheapest price.
If you wish to paint it, remove the panel from the dryer first by locating and removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. This will allow you to work on it in a more convenient location and avoid any overspray from paint on your appliance. Make sure you clean the surface throughly to remove anything that may have caused the paint to bubble and peel in the first place (Ospho is commonly used to clean metal surfaces in preparation for painting - clean AFTER you sand). I would sand with a fine grit sand paper or emery cloth to ensure you don't leave any surface scratches. Prime the entire panel to provide a good surface for the new paint to adhere to. Once the primer is dry, apply a couple of good coats of appliance paint. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
