SOURCE: How to remove a back panel of maytag neptune dryer?

Catriver was right on the mark. Took a little bit of doing but I was able to fix the problem myself within 30 mins, and saved some money. Many thanks. I'd like to expand Catriver's solution a bit.























I found a layer of lint on the inside bottom of my dryer. With the face off of the dryer, it proved to be a good time to vacuum the lint out and reduce the potential of fire.

SOURCE: remove front panel of maytag MDG7400Aww gas dryer

You have to remove the front panel first to access the clip that holds the front of the top down. Instructions:

crosstip medium screwdriver
1/4 inch socket
5/15 inch socket

  1. UNPLUG DRYER
  2. TURN OFF GAS
  3. Disassemble by taking apart the FRONT of the dryer:

    a. Remove the door and opposite side door plugs (crosstip screws)

    b. Remove the front panel - this exposes sheet metal bolts (5/16 inch) some with crosstip on left and right of unit. Set panel aside (right side) WITHOUT unplugging wires

    c. Unscrew all the exposed bolts.

    d. Top bolts left and right secure the unpainted metal hooks which secures the top of dryer. Unscrew these bolts and wiggle the metal retainer hooks off. Lift top and support to create 6 inch gap in the front (top unit hinges in back and has electrical connections - do NOT disconnect wires)

    e. Release belt from pulley by reaching left and under drum (this is out of sight)

    f. gently lift out drum and belt and set aside
  4. This has exposed the interior.

Your ffeed back and ratting are so important for me. thank you

Was this helpful?

The knob breaks when it has been turned in the wrong direction several times. It's a safety device so as not to damage the main timer.

SOURCE: How do I remove the front panel on a Maytag

Remove the two screws holding the lint filter in. Then slip a putty knife in the top edge and pry up and the top will lift up. You may have to take out a couple screws on the control panel too, not sure

How to remove the front panel of a maytag neptune gas dryer


Removal of the front panel requires the removal of the top cover and the console. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the 2 screws attaching the top cover to the rear of the dryer then slide it rearward to clear the screw head from the top cover flange and lift the cover off the dryer cabinet.

Remove the screws securing the heater PCB board and disconnect the black and white wiring harness connectors from the board.

Remove the four screws attaching the console to the washer cabinet and rotate the console down to remove it from the dryer.

Remove the four screws attaching the top of the front panel to the cabinet and the two screws at the bottom of the door opening.

Pull the front panel forward and disconnect the interior light wiring harness then lift the front panel off the tabs across the bottom and move it away from the dryer.

Reinstall the front panel, the console, and the top cover in reverse of the removal steps.

How do i remove the drum on a maytag top-loading washer.MAV 7000aww


If you want to remove the drum of your maytag wahser follow this procedure:
  1. Disconnect the power supply to the Maytag dryer by unplugging it from the wall outlet.
  2. Use a screwdriver to remove the three screws located at the top of the control console.
  3. Pull the control console forward to release the tabs that hold it to the Maytag dryer top. Maneuver the control panel out of your way without disconnecting any wires.
  4. Use a putty knife inserted between the top and front panel to disengage the retaining clips that secure the top panel of the Maytag dryer. Lift the top panel up, and remove it from the dryer.
  5. Use needle nose pliers to remove the wires from the door switch terminals. The door switch is located just inside the front right corner. Grasp the wire leads with the pliers and pull them off the terminals.
  6. Use a screwdriver to remove the retaining screws that hold the front and side panels together on the Maytag dryer. Lift the front panel up and out of the work area.
  7. Use a screwdriver to remove the Maytag dryer drum light lens screw. Press the locking tabs on the light socket, and remove it from the cavity of the drum.
  8. Use a socket wrench to remove the four retaining bolts that secure the drum bulkhead to the sides of the Maytag dryer.
  9. Reach your hand beside the drum and the motor, and push the idler pulley forward to release tension on the belt. Make notes of how the belt is routed on the pulleys, and then remove the belt from the motor pulley and idler pulley.
  10. Grab the belt with one hand, and the Maytag dryer drum with the other. Pull the drum out of the front of the dryer.

Drum Will not turn


you probably have a broken drum drive belt. They are not a difficult do-it-yourself job.

Your local appliance parts outlet should have the belt.

Dryer belt routing on Maytag dryer model MDET236AYW


With the drum removed, loop the belt around the drive motor an run both strands of the belt under the tension pulley. You have to be carefull on getting the drum back in place while working the belt back on a LITTLE AT A TIME. Once installed verify the belt is not caught on anything and you should be good to go.

Dryer not venting properly


Unplug the dryer.
Raise the top lid.
Remove the front panel.
Inspect the blower wheel attached to the motor.
It is probably turning on the shaft.
If so, replace the blower wheel.

If not, dig the lint out of the vent between the wheel and the rear of the dryer.
