Hello,  Is it hard to replace a broken baffle on this dryer?  Any ideas on how to take off the top, or does this need to be repaired from the front?  Thanks for your help.  Karen

To lift the top and access baffle screws, proceed as follows;
1. Remove door hinge screws from cabinet. Door can remain in place.
2. Remove screws and plastic retainers opposite door hinge
3. Grasp each side of the top front panel and pull forward. Lift to remove panel
4. Remove lid retainer clamps from each front top corner.
5. Lift top to access drum baffle screws.
