Question about Maytag MDE2600 Electric Dryer
I have model MDE 6657 BYW and when it is running it is making noises. I would like to know how to take the top off so I can take a look to see what might be making the noise.
On this model there's a little work to do to get the top open.
1. Remove the two screws that secure dryer door hinges to the frame.
2. On the opposite side of the door frame there are two screws also. Remove them and the plastic parts the screws go thru.
3. Remove the door by pulling it off with the hinges still attached to the door itself. The door will come right off for you if you took out the right screws in step one and open it and then pull away from the dryer (This model has a reversible door, designed for the customer to easily do themselves).
Now with the door off, the entire front panel pops loose, it is "ninged" at the bottom by two clips. The whole front panel will lift right off. Set the panel aside.
At the top of the edges of the cabinet, there are two metal hooks, one on each side, that are held in place with a 5/16" screw (use a 5 1/6" nut driver to remove)
After you remove the screws on these hook brackets, remove the brackets themselves. They are hooked into the top on either aide.
Now you can lift the top off sir...
Please rate my answer if this is helpful to you. I need to work my way up to be able to help via chat...

Thanks for the info. on this dryer. I saved at least $200 by not calling a technician. My problem was simple to fix once I knew how to take off the top on the dryer. One of the plastic fins inside the tumbler came off so I had to screw back on from the outside of the tumbler. I was able to take the top off in 10 mins. and put two screws in to re attach the fin.
Thanks again and happy holidays.
