Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
I had the same issue and it is not a big job. You just need to take the front off and then take the brackets off (2 screws) to pop the top. At first I was hearing a scrap and then it was rubbing on the side of the dryer. I pop the top off and tightened the screws and the noise went away and it worked like a charm. Of course I always like to tighten things real tight; which was a mistake. I had tightened so hard that one of the baffels broke about 3 months later. I called the applicance store and they got me a replacement for like 3 dollars. Took off top, unscrewed the old baffel part that was still attached. Screwed on new one. It has worked great. below are instructions I would not recommend putting in oversize scres or putting filler in; if the baffel will not tighten because screw is stripped out of baffel, I would go on line or call local service center and see if you can order a new one, as they are really inexpensive to purchase.
You take off the door screws and the screws on the other side. This will allow you remove the front of the machine. Pull forward at the top front, it will pull out and then you can lift up to get the bottom out of some clips. You will have access to most of dryer from here, but if you want to pop the top, it pops up like a car hood. There are 2 brackets/bolts in the upper corners that need to be removed. You can then pop it up.

Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,
You said, my Neptune dryer sounds like screws are tumbling, one of the 3 dividers connected to the drum inside the dryer is loose and it is leaving black marks on clothes
Those are the screws that hold the dividers to the drum.
The drum ha to come off to replace them. Big job!
