Question about Maytag Dryers
Usually there are two spring loaded clips that wedge into slots located toward the front edge of the "top" of the dryer. The rear of the top is usually held in place by a hinge that allows the consumer to lift the lid and prop it up like a car hood. Sometimes these clips can be very stubborn or even rusted a bit since they are usually put in a dark damp room i.e. wash room. You may need a large flat screwdriver or other similar prying device. The more you can spread out the area of prying the less chance you have of denting the side/front panel. Once the clips come loose you should be able to lift the top section up enough to access the screws that attach the fins inside the drum.

Step 1: To remove the back panel, remove a series of screws or bolts that hold the panel to the top and sides of the cabinet.
Step 2: To remove the lower front panel, pull it away from the bottom of the cabinet. Lift the lower panel up and away. Remove the springs under each side of the lower panel.
Step 3: To remove the top panel, wedge a stiff-bladed putty knife under the rim of the top and pry the top off. The putty knife helps release several spring fasteners at the top of the cabinet sides and front.
Step 4: To remove the dryer's control panel, remove the screws that hold it to the cabinet top or front. These screws may be under a piece of metal or plastic trim; pry off or unscrew the trim. Most knobs are friction-fit; pull them straight out.
