Removing front contol panel

Maytag MF12569VEW2 refridgerator/freezer,in my previous post I thought the control panel could be removed by taking the 2 screws behind the tray out,but that's not the case,anyone have any insight on this?

I don't know anything about your particular refrigerator but I found out on my Whirlpool that in addition to visible screws there are often plastic clips that need to be depressed in order to remove parts.

I used plastic tools for removing automobile door panels, running them around the visible seams of the parts in order to find the hidden clips. Be careful as the clips can break rather easily.

Here is a break down of fridge.

Look under dispenser. I have never taken that one off but like Furd said a lot of them just pop off. Some will break before clips loosen.
