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.

5.- there is a plastic clips but be careful not to break it.


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

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.

Tip

Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers Front Panel and Top...


Most of the internal components of Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers can be accessed with the removal of the front panel and lifting of the top cover. The top cover can only be lifted after the front panel is removed. Make sure that power to the machine is disconnected prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The first step is the removal of the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly. Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top cover lip. Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.

The internal components of the dryer can now be accessed. Reinstall the top cover and the front panel in reverse of the removal steps.

This procedure is also applicable to Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers. The only difference is the dispenser bezel removal.

Mdg9700 need to remove front cover, which does NOT match normal maytag type bottom held by clips not screws, first look is that control panel needs to remove first but if so these are concealed.


The top panel and the control panel need to be removed first before the front panel can be removed. Once the top panel is off, the screws attaching the control panel to the dryer cabinet are exposed. The screws securing the front panel to the dryer cabinet are exposed once the control panel is removed.

Disconnect power and remove the two screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the dryer.

Dryer runs but will not heat-vent and exhaust hoses appear clear.


Disconnect power from the dryer. Open the door and remove the 4 phillip screws from the inside lip of the door opening. Lift the door slightly and remove by sliding the hinge out from the slot on the cabinet. Grasp the front panel near the upper holes of the screw just removed. Twist from the inside out and pull away from the cabinet at the same time. Lift the front panel off of the bottom clips to gain access to the igniter. DO NOT touch the new ignitor surface as it is extremely fragile. The ignitor is attached by a single screw. Make sure the molex connector to new ignitor is secure.

Reverse the above procedure to reassemble.
