Way to go Brian!
You're a true handyman at heart.
Start off by unplugging it. Work safe or watch TV!
Many dryers have a hinged top that lifts up at the front. You have to slide a thin blunt blade like a drywall knife into the little gap between the top and the front. a few inches from both sides there will be an obstruction that is the latch device. Use your blunt blade to gently push this towards the machine, and lift the top at the same time. It should come up. Same thing for both sides and the top will lift.
There will be screws visible on the back. If you undo them, parts will separate from other ones so keep track of what you're doing.
It's usually easier to take things apart than to put them back together, so take your time and enjoy the adventure.
Message me to let me know how it's going.

How to disassemble hair dryer

I don't have any indication of what model or brand of hair dryer you have, but a lot of portable electric accessories have one or 2 hidden screws under a brand label or some stick-on instructions. If not, need to know brand and model #'.
To answer on your comment about "dryers" instead of "hair dryers", I assume that the incoming messages are scanned quickly for key words and slated in the most likely category. That's my take on this. Good luck and let me know if you found any screws.

Need to change back exhaust to side on model wed5500bw

There is a knock out on the side and you will need to get the elbow from the appliance parts store near you. If you need more help let me know. You will have to disassemble the dryer to do this.

The Caster is warn beyond repair and i cant seem to find anyway to replace it and was wondering if i could Order this older part from somewhere Directly

I have found that has parts for most appliances and thier web sit is easy to navigate. The last time I had to work on our dryer (whirlpool) I had to dis-assemble it from the back. A little advice. figure out how to get it diis-assembled before you order the part you think you need, with me, I innevitably find more parts that are worn out as I'm disassembling. I normaly try and ket on the Mfg web sight and print off a technical manual.

Good Luck with the Project.

Jura F9-inside part fell off while pulling the tray. Cannot fix.

Kris I have this same problem. Did you figure out how to replace the flap or did you have to take it in for repair.
Does anyone else know how to replace this plastic flap?

The stainless steel drum/tub has a large tear in it. We have been trying to patch it until we are able to figure out if the drum/tub can be replaced. Does anyone know if it can be replaced & is it...

That sucks. I've been informed by LG technical support this is a non serviceable part. what that means in short is, the part is not available thru LG.

If anyone knows of another fix, or an aftermarket part they may be able to point you in that direction.

I've come across this only once with a client of mine, and we could not repair her 3 yr. old dryer. needless to say she was very upset with LG. Look around at some local used appliance parts outfit if possible, otherwise it's a new dryer.

sorry I couldn't actually provide a "fix".

good luck
