How do you remove the top cover

Jay for Model Number MDE5500AYQ

ANSWER Jay, To remove the dryer top cover, First disconnect power to the dryer, or unplug the power cord. Open the dryer door and remove the center screw of eachhinge secured to the inner flange of the front panel in the door opening. Grasp the door with both hands and lift the door in the hinge area and draw the door assembly away from the machine. This will disengage the hinges from the slots in the front shroud. Once the door opening screws and door are removed, the front panel is held to the cabinet by means of clips secured to the front shroud. Small slots in the front panel engage the clips and hold the front panel in place. To remove the front panel, grasp the "goal posts" of the front panel 3/4 of the way down and pull the front panel away from the dryer. Tilt the top of the front panel away from the machine and lift the panel off two clips retaining the front panel to the base frame. Set the front panel away from the machine. Locate and remove two 5/16" hex head screws securing the two hold down brackets for the top cover. To remove the hold down brackets, swing the bracket to the outside and unhook the bracket from the slot in the top cover lip. If the door is still positioned on the front shroud, open the door prior to lifting the front of the top cover and tilt the top cover towards the rear of the machine. Good Luck and Thanks
