How do you get the top off? Most of the online help indicates that there are usually two clips in the front that you can push down with a putty knife. However, my Kenmore model (it's a front loader, 700 series; the model number seems to be 110.67741600) seems to have brackets on the right and left sides, about an inch from the front, with nothing obvious to push or slide to remove the top.
I have gotten several coins stuck, presumably in the baffles, but I need to lift up the top first.

I would try searching on Google for the model number of the dryer. It all depends on the model of dryer but many times you can slip a putty knife in the seam where the top meets the front panel. There can be a catch in a couple of inches from each side that you can push back to release and the top should lift up from the front.
Depends on how old it is. Some will be screwed on usually with screws a the front bottom and some will have two screws top back and some appliances, usually washers though have clips in front that you need to locate near each side and slip a flat tool like a putty knife into to push back and release.
if the lint filter is on top then the top always pops up,unplug the dryer,pull out the lint filter and remove the two screws in front of the filter,now there are clips one on each side of the top panel,stick a putty knife or screw driver between the front and top panel and push the clip in,get a flash light and look in between the top and front panel near the corners around an inch or two in and you'll see the clips,push in on them one at a time and lift the top,hope this helps,if you live in mass and need an appliance repair tech peter de's is a good company,781-438-9442
there are 2 clips near the top of the front panel just below the top where theres a seam,insert a putty knife or something thin and push in to release these clips they are about 3' from each side,then tilt cover out toward yourself to remove off the catches at the base
Check behind the control panel for mounting screws for the top panel to the main chassis and remove them. Then using a putty or butter knife release the two clips inside the FRONT of the top panel about 3 inches from the corners by pressing FIRMLY against EACH clip and lifting EACH side of the top until it is free. After releasing the two clips the top should pivot up so that you have access to the drum.
Reassemble when complete and turn on power.
(Top locking clips.. just press down on the front corners.. if the clips don't quite clear.. depress them and push down on each corner to lock them.)
you can take the top off there are screws in the back and clips on the front if you push on the clips with a flat screw driver lift the front edge and push the clip the top will tip up when you free the clips
It would help us help you if you stated what model and brand you have. Many dryers use clips which hold the top of the dryer to the front panel. If yours has that, they can generally be released by using a putty knife to push back on them as you lift a bit on the dryers top. The clips are usually located a couple inches in from the sides, in the seam between the front panel and the dryer's top.
First before you you raise the top, open the cover on the back by the
motor and let the belt loose from the motor pulley unless the belt has
broken. If it has go to the lid. Slide a thin flat blade under the
front of the lid and feel for the two clips several inches in from the
corners. Push straight in on a clip while pulling up on the lid at the
front edge and it will release the lid at that point. Do the other
clip. Lift the lid. Three are usually two screws, one on each side
holding the front tight. With the screws removed, pry out by each of
the push clips on the side. The front should be come loose. Swing it
away slightly paying attention to the wires to the door switch. Slide
the new belt over the drum and work it to where it ran in the past. Put
the front back on and snap the lid down. When putting the front on
guide the front panel and the drum together at the felt seal. Open the
panel on the back near the motor. Reach in and spring the belt
tightener over and put the belt around the motor pulley. Let the spring
tightener tighten the belt. Put the cover back on.
Lifting the top should be pretty simple. There is an obvious lip that runs all the way around the dryer where the top hinges down and fits on the other body panels. Look between the lid & the front panel on the front of the dryer. A few inches from either front corner there is a metal clip that interlocks with the front panel (If the lip is squeezed together to tightly to see between, just get a putty knife or another thin-yet-sturdy object & work it between the two pieces until you barely see between them.). Once you locate the two clips, get two thin knives or putty tools & push inward from the front on both of the clips. When you have the clips fully disengaged you should be able to lift the lid by prying upwards very gently. Sometimes it takes a little wiggling to get them disengaged, so do not forcefully pry as this can bend the pieces, causing a poor fit or cosmetic damage.
It will be much easier to locate the noise if you take the front panel off as well. From the top your view is obstructed almost completely by the tub. There are normally only 2 or 4 screws near the top on the inside connecting the front panel. Just remove those screws & lift up on the front. Everything should be much easier to inspect. While you are in there, vacuum all the lint out (there's usually lots). Doing so will help airflow & lower the chances of an accidental fire.
I hope this helps you out. I have a similar model & it did not take me very long to figure it out. Hopefully you'll have the same luck!
