SOURCE: Whirlpool dryer front panel
I located a video on youtube.com free of charge. I removed the lint screen, and removed the two screws located in the lint screen housing. Then I pryed the top off near the front of the dryer, which has two clips. Then I remove the two screws locate on the top of the front panel, but they are located on the inside. I removed the door lid swich by removing the two screws. Lastly, I pulled the front panel outward and pulled up lightly. The front panel was off. The issue I had was the dryer would heat up and then got cool after five minutes. The solution was to replace the coils. Important point is that the coils ohm readings were within specifications, but I did located information on the web that indicated this was a potential solution to the issue, and I replaced the coils even though the resistances were within specification. Total cost $22.95 plus tax.

Be sure to unplug the machine from the mains,
1.-Remove the top cover of the machine, very straight forward.
2.-Unclip the universal coupling from the main timer to the back of the knob.
3.- The whole knob assembly is held in place by a backing plate.
4.- There are 2 clips at the top of this backing plate raise them and the backing plate and knob can be pulled out.
5.- there is a plastic clips but be careful not to break it.
Your ffeed back and ratting are so important for me. thank you

The knob breaks when it has been turned in the wrong direction several times. It's a safety device so as not to damage the main timer.

Hi, If the lint screen is at the top of the dryer, remove the screws located at the lint screen. Then pry the top by inserting something flat into the gap between the top and the front panel. Now locate the screw inthe upper inside corners and remove them. Now the front will lift up and release from the cabinet.
If the lint screen is inside the door, the lower half front panel will release and let you see under the drum.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
