You will need to remove the front panel and the front bulk head. after that you will see that there are clips that need to be pushed down to hold the fabric (felt) down. You need to make sure that the felt isn't torn. If it isn't torn then all you need to do is take a flat head screw driver pry the clips up and put the felt back on and push the clips back down

Repair loose tumbler fin


Pop the top, remove the front, the drum will come free. Take pictures of how the belt goes around the motor. Fix your "fin" and reverse.



The top is held down by spring clips.

What is the correct belt routing for a maytag MDE6000AYW dryer and should the groove side or smooth side be on the drum? Thanks. dave


groove down. around the drum. near the motor you will find a tensioner. Through the tensioner then around the pulley on the motor. Have your assistnnt hold the drum up while you get up and prepare to put the front back on. You know the rest.

They call it a tensioner for good reason ... you may want to lift it using the length of a screw driver against the floor of the machine.

Watch your fingers.

Felt insulation around drum is loose?


This is not a serious problem, but it should be fixed. It probably just came unglued and can be reattached.

Inside of drum baffles coming loose on maytag neptune dryer


Hello.

Remove the door and the plastic pieces on the opposite side. Take the front panel off. There will be one metal bracket on each side holding the top panel down. Remove those brackets and lift the top. Turn the drum where the loose baffle is up top and tighten loose screws or replace missing ones.

Scraping sound on left side as it goes around


You need to replace the tumbler guide rubber wheel. I would suggest to avoid further issues, replace all base guides.

It requires dismantling the Dryer.
