Remove the top of the dryer by removing the four screws in the back. the entire top should slide forward an inch allow you to lift and pivot the top off to the side. it will not come off entirely because of electrical wires. with that moved off to the side you should see the top of the drum. reach in the front door of the dryer and rotate the drum so that the loose blade is at the top. in that position you should be able to tighten the screws.

The passenger side windshield wiper stopped working but the motor is good & driver side works


the wiper arm may have come loose from the motor linkage , where the arm joins the linkage outside of bonnet/hood there is a flip up cap , under there is a nut that holds the wiper arm in position , this may be loose so remove completely then remove the arm as the splines may not be in the correct position, replace the arm so that when it is laid back down on windscreen it is level with the bottom and tighten the nut , you must tighten the nut with the wiper arm raised so as to get a good fit , this may require a couple of attempts to get in the exact position when wiper arm is laid back down, hope that makes sense

How to remove arm wiper arm


sound like it needs tightening. flip up wiper arm end cover (at base of wiper arm) tighten nut. If its not loose the splines may have shredded. If this is the case a new arm might be needed but you can also use a twin pack chemical metal or devcom typ putty to make the difference. mix some up place it in the wiper arm, fit the wiper arm and remove excess putty, semi tighten arm and allow to go off. Then tighten arm when its fully cured

Replace belt


  • Disconnect the power source from the dryer. You can unplug from the wall outlet, remove the fuse from the fuse box or flip the breaker in the panel box.

  • 2

    Pull off the front panel of the dryer. Remove the screw in each corner at the bottom of the dryer's front panel. Lift up the front panel until the two clips at the top disengage. Remove the two screws that are found beneath it at the corners to remove the cabinet top.

  • 3

    Remove the belt by releasing the tension applied by the movable idler pulley wheel. The belt loops over the drum, under the idler pulley wheel and then around the motor's drive pulley.

  • 4

    Discard the used belt. It is fine to just throw it in the trash.

  • 5

    Install the new belt by pushing in on the idler pulley arm. Make sure the new belt is placed flat along the exterior of the drum.

  • 6

    Replace the screws back into the dryer's front panel. Screw them in tightly so that the panel will not fall off or jiggle loose.

  • 7

    Reconnect the power source back to your dryer. Either plug it back in or flip the switch in the breaker box.

Same issue....wind flipped passanger wiper over


Most likely the nut that hold the arm at the pivot has come loose, pop the cover off, out the arm back in poisition and tighten the nut down, should be a 13mm nut.

Maytag neptune model MDE5500AYW loose tumbler in drum


I had the same problem but it's the FRONT Panel you need to remove. Before you start, unplug the thing first. BTW I did the whole proceedure in 10 minutes using an electric screwdiver / philips bit and a socket set with an 8mm socket with my leg in a cast. You can do better, I'm confident!

Two 8mm hex head bolts hold each fin on the drum. They can be tightened. You need to open the dryer front since they bolt from the outside of the drum. To open the dryer front you first take the door off by removing the two philips head screws, then slightly lift the door and pull toward you (the door hinges have little hooks on the end that inserts into the slots (this little design keeps the door from falling off during removal and install-nice). Then remove the two philips screws on the other side of the door opening (opposite the door hinges). These screws hold two plastic brackets (be sure to see how they are aligned before you remove them so you know how they go back on.

Now the front frame panel looks like an "H" . Grab the top two arms of the 'H" and give a quick pull. The top arms of the 'H" will come loose. The bottom part is held by a couple of clips, just pull up and the front panel comes off.

You will be able to spin the drum until the hex bolts for the fin(s) in question are visable / reachable from the right side (just above the heater unit-hope you unplugged the dryer earlier). I tightened it using an 8 mm socket.

Now reverse your steps: put the front panel back on the bottom clips and snap the top "H" arms back in place. Reinstall the plastic clips / screws and then put the door back on.

Tightening windshield wipers on 2002 aztek


Try flipping it (the cover) up from bottom end with a screwdriver or something, and you'll probably find nut underneath it to tighten. Loosen nut off first, pull arm off, blow out shavings, put back on and snug real good but don't get carried away, they'll snap pretty easy if you reef too ******* that nut. Make sure wipers are off, and in park position before, so that you can tighten them in the position that they normally are when not in use, down at lower part of windshield.

Blower wheel on dryer is loose


Jclay, you are in for a little work here partner. On this model the blower is up-front. The dryer is going to have to come apart for you to tighten or replace the blower wheel. The end caps on the consol will pull off. Remove the two screws on each end securing the consol. Flip the consol up. There will be 3 quarter inch screws under the consol, in back, holding the top on. Remove these and the top will slide off, forward. Remove the bottom panel by the blower. Remove the lint filter. Remove the 4 screws attaching the front panel and door to the front of the dryer, remember to unplug the door switch cable. The drum now can be removed after removing the belt. Take the tension off the belt by moving the pulley over. Remember the belt configuration so you can put it back on right. Once the drum is removed you will now be able to get a wrench on the motor shaft itself so you can tighten or replace the wheel. Reverse the above steps and your back in business. Im going to attach a picture of a rear blower system and the way to take it off. Yours is up front but the removal will work the same way. Sometimes you have to cut the old blower wheel off because it's fused on with heat. Your part number for the wheel is 697772. Remember to unplug the dryer during this work..Catriver..post back.
