This is driving me insane! After about 3 years of service I thought it would be a good idea to clean the lint in the dryer. The heater element at the back of the unit was a piece of cake because it is easily accessible. I also vacuumed the lint from the bottom of the machine accessing it through the vent exhaust opening at the back, which was not great but OK. Now I want to open the unit to vacuum it and clean it up inside around the motor and the drum. This is where I got stumped. How do you remove the top lid? I cannot find that info on the Web and calling to Bosch asking for service manual was futile exercise. I think they automatically assume that all their appliance users are idiots and therefore don't have the right to open their own dryer? Anyway, what I found so far is that the lid is held at the back by 2 brackets that look like a hinges so I am assuming the lid should open from the front. By peaking inside, it seems to be held in place by some plastic bracket on each side, about 5 inches from the front. So guys, what is the trick to release this?

 

Thanks for the help.

The top panel comes off by removing the clip screws in back the screws under the white covers in front.  But the rest of the teardown is best covered in the training manual for this dryer:  http://appliantology...raining-manual/
