Hi, UNPLUG the dryer. There are two screws on each side of the door opening. Remove them screws and the front should pull toward you and release.The door can either lift off or remain on. You can reach under the drum and tighten the screws.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Thanks
Vic

Fin that tumbles clothing inside dryer coming loose, how can I tighten it?


These fins are usually screwed on from the outside of the drum. If you're up to it this is a simple but time consuming fix. Take the cabinet off the front of the dryer, the top will come off as well. be careful of the wires from the control console, they will stay attached to the dryer. Tighten the tumbler fins on the drum and then re-assemble the cabinet. Typically the screws you need to access are the same used for the door latch and hinges. They go back together easy ........

Inside the dryer there are 3 bars that stick out to help tumble the clothes. One of them has come loose and I'm not sure how to tighten it. It appears to be attached with screws that come thru the drum...


With the front off look up in the top left and right corners for some screws that hold the top of the dryer to the side panels. Depending on your model, there can be different styles. The old maytags used 3/8 in screws up inside the corners and the newer models had 5/16 screws right up front.
Once you get the front of the top loose you will be able to lift it like the hood on a car to gain access to the drum.
Rotate the drum by hand to put your loose fin at the top and tighten up your screws. Sometimes the screws will round out the holes on the drum too much and you may want to put a washer on the screw to secure it better.
Good luck!

Maytag neptune dryer making banging noise on each rotation on the left side facing the front. its almost like a thumping noise what do i need to do please?


The drum baffle screw has unscrewed itself and the head is thumping against the inside top panel. Pull door, lift lid, rotate drum to find screw sticking out and tighten.

One of the three things that tumble the laundry in the dryer is loose--it is making alot of noise--how do I tighten it


Hi,
I think you are talking about the large ribs that prevent clothes from just sliding in the drum.
They are available as a spare, so are usually screwed in from outside the drum.
To fix your problem, turn off and unplug dryer.
Remove back pannel screws holding the lid on, and slide back the lid.
Rotate the drum by hand internally untill the faulty blade is at the top. You should be able to see the screws that need tightening.
Replace parts when finished.

Maytag dryer won't rotate after blower wheel replacement


Check the drive belt and belt tensioner. From the way you describe it, the belt is loose and with a load in the drum, it will not rotate due to belt slipping.

Maytag dryer making clanking noise


I had this problem and the cause was a loose screw holding on one of the "paddles" inside the drum. I removed the door, front panel, lifted the top, manually rotated the drum until I saw the screw head which had worked loose and was slapping the side of the dryer. A quick tighten of the screw and the noise was gone.
