Question about Maytag Dryers
One of the drum baffles inside the tub came loose and is catching clothes when it drys. I thought I would just pop up the hinged top and out some sort of fastener in there to hold it - but I can't get either of the front cabinet latches to release so I can open it to fix the baffle problem - any ideas ?
I had the same problem and just fixed it. First, open the door and remove four screws, two are holding the door on and the other two are in the same place on the opposite side. Lift the door up and pull it out to remove it. Set it aside. Pull the front panel down. Admire all of the **** that has collected inside the dryer. Next, there are two dark colored metal clips holding the top down on the upper right and left. Remove the hex head screws holding these on. Wiggle them to release them and take them out. Now the lid will lift to reach the screws holding the fins on. Tighten as necessary. Now would be a good time to get the shopvac and clean the lint and junk out of the dryer. Reverse the process to put it back together. Problem solved!
