How do you get the top off? Most of the online help indicates that there are usually two clips in the front that you can push down with a putty knife. However, my Kenmore model (it's a front loader, 700 series; the model number seems to be 110.67741600) seems to have brackets on the right and left sides, about an inch from the front, with nothing obvious to push or slide to remove the top.
I have gotten several coins stuck, presumably in the baffles, but I need to lift up the top first.

Don't know if they are all the same, but I remove mine by sliding a putty knife in between the top and the front panel about 6 inches in (should feel something stopping the knife on both sides) push the putty knife against it hard and the metal clip holding front panel on should come off.
Unplug the dryer. Failing to do so could result in electrical shock, injury or death.
If the lint screen is mounted on the top cover, remove the lint screen from the lint filter. Once you remove the screen, you will see two screws that hold in the casing. Remove the screws and set them aside.
Wrap a putty knife in masking tape--to avoid scartches on the machine that may result from the knife-- or use a flat object to insert into the gap between the top and front panel of your dryer.
Move the putty knife to the right of the dryer. You will run into a spring clip. Push back on the clip with the putty knife to release the clip. Now, move the putty knife to the left and push back on the clip to release the left clip.
Lift the top panel up. Some washers will have hinges on the back which the top panel can rest on. On some, you will have to remove the panel completely.
Take 2 screws out of the top where the filter goes in so the top can lift up. Slid the top forward to get to get the front of the top off the clips on the top of the front panel. If that don't work use a putty knife to push the clips back. Slide the putty knife in the crack to find the clips. Lift top up and secure it. Mark & remove the wires from the door switch . Remove 2 screws holding the cabinet to the front panel ,pull forward and lift on front panel to remove from bottom catches. Set front panel aside, remove old belt & replace. Grooves in belt go against drum.
Two clips on the front under the top panel, use a putty knife to find each one, then push the putty knife in firmly square to the front of the machine in the middle of the clip. Stick a pencil or something small to hold the top up so it doesn't just fall back down and reclip itself. Move to the other side and repeat. When both clips are unclipped, the top panel will open like a trap door.
Insert a putty knife along the front seam of the washer where the top meets the front panel. About 2 inches in from each side, you will find a retaining clip. Push in with the putty knife and push down while lifting up on the top panel. Repeat this on each side and the entire washer top will lift up, allowing access to the washer interior. Remove the screws holding the front panel in place and remove for full access.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

In the split between the top and the front, insert a stiff putty knife in, about 2 inches from the side. There are spring clips that hold the top down. Push in on the putty knife while pushing upward on the front edge of the top.
use a small putty knife move in 4-5inches from each edge of the frount push in the putty knife to the top release clip . it will feel springy when you have found the clip. push in the putty knife and pull out on the side of the panel, do the same process on the other side and it is loose
You have to pretty much use a putty knife to remove the front panel. Insert the putty knife into the edge of the front panel where it meets the top lid panel about and inch or two from the sides. One clip on each side. Push in the putty knife and give a little pull on the front panel repeat step for other side. That should get you into where you need to be.
Hope this helps you out. Feel free to ask any more questions about this if you run into anymore issues.
