How to remove the front panel of a maytag epic z dryer


If your unit is not drying well or slow dry it is being caused by poor external venting rather than internally. first make sure you are not crushing the vent hose behind unit then next clean venting in wall and make sure outside flaps are opening and closing properly before opening up dryer. Easy way to tell if it the machine or venting is to take vent hose off and connect a pair of sheer pantyhose to exhaust port on back of dryer and run a few loads if all works well your issue is in the wall not the machine
