Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
Hello, This is somewhat involved and time consuming, but if you are handy, it can be done. First unplug the dryer then start with the two screws in the hinges of the door and then the door lifts out. Two
screws on the opposite side holding plastic spacers. Once these four
screws are out the front panel tilts right out. The front panel will come off then 4 more holding on the
front tumbler support and air duct. Removed wires from light and
dryness sensor and clips holding wires to panels. Pull out the
tumbler and removed belt. If your dryer gets a lot of use, then you might want to keep going and replace some more wear items while you have it apart. Remove the two drum support rollers and
shafts by removing a nut on the back side of each shaft. Remove snap
ring off each old shaft, install new rollers and fiber washers onto
new shafts, reinstall snap ring and replaced on brackets with the old
nut. Remove tension spring off idler pulley bracket and one screw
holding on the bracket. Install new pulley and fiber washers on new
bracket and reinstall bracket and spring. Placed new belt on tumbler
and reinstalled tumbler. Used drill and bit to drill out pop rivits
holding on the two front glides that are attached on the front tumbler
support and installed new glides and pop riveted in. Reinstall front
support and air duct checking that felt tumbler seal front and rear are in place. Placed new belt on motor pulley and idler pulley.
Reinstall front panel.
