    Two of the three paddles have fallen off. Is there a way to either raise the top or take off the back panel so I am able to get to the drum and screw the paddles back on. Thanks!

Take the four screws, out of the door and remove it. The front of the dryer will fold down and lift off, you will be able to see in side the dryer. If you want to lift the top remove the screws that are now exposed. Along with the brackets the top will now lift up.

This should allow you to access the tumbler.

Maytag dryer blade inside of the drum


Is blade loose or broken off? Either way, you must remove front panel (door panel) to expose the front drum end retainer brackets, which you must unscrew and remove to get at screws to tighten or replace missing paddle blade. You can get replacement part at www.repairclinic.com their very reasonable

The paddle has come loose inside my dryer how can I get the lid open to get to the back of the drum


take the 2 screws out of the door and take out the other 2 screws opposite the hindge screws,close the door,now grab the sides where you took the screws out of and pull forward and this will remove the front panel,take out the 2 top 5/16 screws one on each side that go through the metal holders,they are the screws closest top the top lid,remember how the holders hook into the top cover and the catch is in the middle of each piece,now lift the top and spin the drum so the baffle(paddle) is on the top and you can get at the screws to tighten them,the top doesn't lift to far up so you might have to lay down and tighten them from the floor,this is how i've done it ,hope this helps

Paddle in dryer tumbler broke off need to know how to attach new one.


Hi, UNPLUG the dryer. You should find two screws in the front lower part of the panel where it angels in. Remove those screws and pull the bottom toward you. The front panel should then release. Now you will need to locate the screws in each of the upper corners that hold the top to the cabinet. They will probably be 3/8" screws. The top should lift up. You can put the parts on this way. THe old screws are probably laying in the bottom of the dryer. You might need to add metal washers if the holes have longated. If I can assist you fyrther, please let me know.

Thanks

The paddle came off inside my Neptune Dryer


The screws for the paddle can be accessed by removing the small back panel. If they are stripped out you will need a new paddle.
