Need to change belt on maytag dryer but dont know how to do it on this model . any help would be great


Get the Model number and order a Dryer Maint Kit from either of these sites.
http://www.partselect.com/
http://www.repairclinic.com/

If you have the belt already then open the dryer door and there should be a couple screws in the opening where the door normally closes at the top. Remove those and then the door should be able to completely come off then you will have access to the belt area.
Good Luck!

You dont need to check motor first. start from door switch. check the continuity of the switch if not making a peep sound when you press the button replace the switch button.

Neptune dryer model 4000, <10 y.o., hums, but won't start.


I wouldn't know about the warranty, but the dryer motor may need only a start relay, which is usually attached to the motor. Usually, this is a centrifugal device. By that I mean the contacts on the relay are normally closed to give the motor extra starting capacity when you first turn it on. The contacts open after the motor get up to full speed.
