Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
I have a bad heating element on my performa dryer. I am not having any luck on getting to it. How does the top of the cabinet release so the element can be accessed.
You need a putty knife you need to stick it in between the frount and the top abot 3 inches in from the outside edge of the machine, push in and a spring clip will release do the same on the other side and the top will lift up

Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet before servicing the Westinghouse dryer.
Insert the putty knife into the gap above the front panel and below the top panel. Lift the putty knife handle up to unfasten the internal locking clips.
Lift the top panel from the dryer cabinet. Rest the panel on the wall behind the dryer.
Remove the two screws on the top border of the front panel. Lift the front panel straight up to unhook it from the dryer cabinet. Unplug the connector leading into the front panel. Set the front panel aside.
Move the idler pulley arm toward the front of the dryer cabinet to loosen the belt. Remove the belt from the drum and pulleys.
Lift the drum out of the dryer cabinet.
Disconnect the electrical plugs leading into the heating element. Unfasten the screws securing the element to the inside of the cabinet. Lift the element out of the cabinet.
Place the new heating element inside the dryer. Connect the screws holding the element to the cabinet. Plug the electrical connectors into the element.
Reposition the front panel. Plug the door switch connector into its socket on the front panel. Press the panel straight down into the base. Reinstall the screws along the top of the panel.
Lower the top panel onto the dryer. Press down on the panel to lock it into place
