Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
I am trying to dismantle front without breaking anything , how do i go about this ? is this thw way to access dryer baffles to tighten them
Hi Nick, welcome to FixYa!
1. Open the door and remove the two screws that secure each of the door hinges to the dryer frame. With the door open so you can take a hold of it, simply pull the whole door out of the notches that the hinges fit into.
Next, remove the two screws on the opposite side of the frame where the door closes to. (along with the two white plastic trim pieces the screws go thru) Once the door is off and the screws are out, pull the entire front panel forward and then it will lift off the tabs at the bottom and you can set it aside.
next, look up near the top of the cabinet, on each side, for the metal hooks that secure the top to the cabinet. Remove the screw (5/16" nut driver) that secures each hook to the cabinet. Take the hook off, repeat for the other side.
Now you can lift up the top of the machine, and rotate the drum so that the loose baffle is at the top so you can work on the baffle easily. Rotate the drum to the next baffle, etc.
I hope you find this answer helpful.
