On this model you will see 4 phillips screws in the recessed area when the door is open. 2 on each side. Take the 2 on the right out and then the 2 holding the hinges to the cabinet. Remove the door and then pull the front panel off by pulling toward you. Then you will see 2 screws holding the top down. 1 on each side near the top. Remove these and the top will lift back resting against the wall. From here you can get to the baffles. Good luck and thanks, Rick

You can pop the top with a drywall putty knife there is two tabs on each side. This will allow you to access the drum. Then tighten the screws holding the baffle in place.

How to fix a drum baffel screw on a maytag dryer


This is an easy fix. You need to pop the top of the dryer up to do so. Depending on the model you may have to take the front off (older models), or just locate the clips located on the left and right side under the lid, and with a flat head screw driver push them in and lift up. (newer models). After you have the top up, located the baffle thats broken and install. Keep in mind that if the baffle is loose its more than like the hole where the screw goes is stripped and the whole baffle should be changed.

Baffle loose (Can see hole when moving baffle)


Hi there :)

The baffles are held in by 2 quarter inch screws per baffle. The only way to get to them is by taking off the top lid of the dryer.

Good luck.

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.

Fix Loose Baffles


The two screws that hold the door door hinges and the two on the opposite side of the door opening hold the front panel in place. Once you remove the door and the other two screws the front panel should swing down to access the screws that hold down the top. But you may be able to reach the baffle screws once the front cover is removed.
