Take a flat-blade screw driver and stick it in the seam between the top cover and front panel at one corner and pry up. The top panel will pop up from the catch - then do the same for the other front corner.
You can then tilt the top up towards the back of the dryer because there are hinges in the back. Spin the drum to where the holes for the baffle are and screw the baffle back on. If you are missing the screws, they probably fell to the bottom inside.
You can take off the front by unscrewing the two screws that hold the top of the front panel to the outside panels. Once those are off, just lift the front panel straight up and pull away. There are two holders towards the bottom that the front panel slides into.
Once the front is off you should be able to find the screws below.

The dryer baffle mounting screws are located around the outside perimeter of the drum. You will need to remove the top panel of the dryer to access them. The panel comes off by locating and removing the three 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. CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer prior to servicing. You should be able to manually rotate the drum to get to all the bolts you need to tighten.
If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.
To remove the dryer drum baffles on a Whirlpool Duet, follow these steps:
1. UNPLUG the dryer.
2. Remove the top panel of the appliance by 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.
3. Locate the bolts that hold the baffles in place on the outside perimeter of the drum. There should be 2 for each one.
4. Remove the screws for the baffle and it will come off.
1. Remove ONE baffle at a time so you can use the remaining baffles to turn the drum manually.
2. Drum rotates in a clockwise direction.
3. When removing or reinstalling each baffle, duct taping it place will keep it from flipping around when you get to the last bolt holding it in place. It will also keep it from dropping in the drum when removing, and help you hold it in place to reinstalling.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
HOW DID YOU DETERMINED THE IGNITOR WORKS? DID IT GLOWS REALLY RED? IF IT DID, MEANS YOU HAVE GOOD FUSE AND YOU SHOULD CHECK THE RADIANT SENSOR(NEXT TO IGNITOR) AND THE COILS.IF THE IGNITOR DID NOT GLOW AT ALL, THEN YOU HAVE A BROKEN FUSE. IT IS LOCATED IN THE BACK. ABOUT AN INCH LONG AND IT'S NARROW. CHECK FOR CONTINUITY. OPEN MEANS IT'S BAD. OHM READING MEANS GOOD.
Pull the dryer away from the wall, there is no bottom on the dryer, so the screws should be on the floor.
You can then pop the lid up from the front and fold it back. When you do, you will see the drum. Roll the drum around until you see the holes and reattach the tumblers.
You can also access the drum from below. Tip the dryer on its back and you can see the drum from the bottom.
Just get the filter out and remove the 2 phillips screw init's housing on top. Then use a putty knife to press against the spring clips that hold down the top Then just roll the drum around to the top where the holes are to reattach the baffle, get some screws and put it back.
ok here is the best way to describe it you will need to get around the back there are two torks screws remove them and slide the top panel back to you ..OH I FORGOT unplug the machine first !!!....Ok now with the top off you will see the drum.. slowly hand rotate it until you see some screws that are lined up with the baffles inside the drum You will need to remove just a few screws on one side (the baffle that has the coins) dont take them all out or the baffle will fall inside the drum and it will be a pain to get back on9u will need 2 people) and that should do it you will need to rotate the drum around until the correct baffle ...ie ..the one with the coins in on top at the 12 o'clock position.. let me know if this works our for you
