Question about Maytag MDE2400AYW Neptune Electric Dryer

Neptune dryer I have an early model, first or second year they were sold. It appears that the back is one piece with the sides. How do I access the interior to replace the drive belt and refix one of the "paddles" inside the tumbler ?

You have to tear the whole thing apart. when the last screw comes out make sure you have some extra hands to help.

When the dryer is run on high it shuts off early and a PF is displayed on the panel.

Could be your circuit breaker is bad, I had this problem awhile back. Or the thermistor could be bad. Easy enough to order parts and replace yourself to save money. Just google it for your type and model of dryer to get parts.

How do I access dryer drum for neptune dryer

take the door screws off and take the opposite side screws off lift out the door, grab the vertical pieces of the front panel and twist them away from the opening while you pull out, then lean the panel forward about 2 feet and lift the panel up and out, this gives you access to the lint screen housing and the blower wheel and housing and eventually the entire heating element and belt, drum, motor etc. unplug this thing before you work on it !!! it will zap you !!

Maytag neptune dryer making load noise seems unbalanced

Sounds more like the dryer drum seal is deteriorating.
If the dryer tumbles the belt is intact.
To access the belt.
Open the door.
Remove 4 screws on right and left side of the door opening.
Raise the door on the hinge side and remove it.
Pull the front panel forward and remove it.
From there you can see what to do next.
