Using a flat screwdriver or putty knife, press in to release the top clips. The top panel will tilt towards the back of the unit.
The top of the front panel will tilt out towards you, the front panel can be lifted off of the clips on the bottom. Many have male-female wire connectors that can be undone if you wish to totally remove the front panel.
The drum can be lifted up and out of the rear bearing socket if need to remove the whole drum, disconnect the belt first. Do not touch these screws to remove the drum!!

Many of these front consol dryers have an end of cycle buzzer. There have been some complaints about that and Frigidaire has come out with a quieter 74 dba. buzzer that can be installed in place of the original 87.5 dba. one. The replacement is part number 131981300 and can be ordered.....or you may be able to access the consol and disconnect and tape one of the wires from the buzzer itself. Some dryers have the buzzer built into the timer, for this style you will need to jam the buzzer to stop the vibrating plate from moving on the buzzer.
If your front consol dryer is stacked on top of the washer and you want the dryer taken down. There is 2 small plastic plugs on the front bottom, remove the plugs and the 2 screws. Lift the front of the dryer up and the whole dryer towards the front to disengage the brackets at the back and the dryer can be lifted down. Don't forget to disconnect venting and power plug first! Two people is safer as well!
