Is there a trick to getting the top off?

This is a coin operated dryer. From all I can find out so far, all you have to do is press in the clips, and lift. But...that dosent seem to be doing it on this one.

Get the entire model number and perhaps we can score some material for you.

That would be MGD26CSAAL. After looking at it a little closer, the front might have to come off 1st. If that the case that's all I need anyway. I'm just trying to get to the fan.

Thanks for all the help. I got the thing up and running, it's not right....but it will do till I can get the right parts. All the folks in the apartment complex that have been paying $3 to dry thier clothes seem to be happy too.
