How to get into dryer to convert to LP

I just purchased a GE DBXR46366WW gas dryer and have ordered a conversion kit for LP (WE25X0217) but cannot figure how to get in to the orifice. There are 2 screws inside up above the dryer opening. But is also connected at the bottom in some fashion. How do I get into the dryer to swap parts? Any other tips on replacing these parts?

Disconnect power. Turn off gas.

Open the door and look along the front upper edge of the door opening. In the top left and right rounded corner of the door opening you will see screws going upward into the top. Remove both screw and raise the top.

Look down inside the open top dryer from above on each left and right edge there will be a screw holding the front assembly to the case of the dryer. Remove 1 on each side.

The dryer front can now be pulled toward you about 3 inches at the top and then lifted off the bottom clips and swung away to the right from the case. Be careful not to strain any wires connected between the case and the front.

This will expose the underside of the dryer along with motor, Gas valve and venting for checking and vacuuming. Be careful of the ignitor. It is very brittle and can be easily broken

Gas service should should be done by professionals only as improper servicing can cause fires, explosion or death from asphyxiation. TEST for leaks after reassembling gas parts.

Perform thorough vacuuming and reverse the above process for reassembly. Good Luck
