SOURCE: Dryer Paddle Loose

Take the four screws, out of the door and remove it. The front of the dryer will fold down and lift off, you will be able to see in side the dryer. If you want to lift the top remove the screws that are now exposed. Along with the brackets the top will now lift up.

This should allow you to access the tumbler.

SOURCE: breadmaker paddle rotor falls out, letting liquid

Hi,
Looks like you need a new bread pan. Try looking on Ebay. They are expensive. I just bought a new one at walmart instead.

SOURCE: drum paddle keeps coming off had machine blocage

Are you sure you have got the correct paddle, as there is more than one version, and also there is a right and wrong way to fit them.
Make sure you push it hard into the locating slots, you should feel it click into place, to be sure it is located properly, lightly pull it, and it should remain in position.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: One of the paddles inside the drum has come loose

you have to start by taking off the door at the hinges, then the front panel will twist off at the smaller raised portion, about 2 inches wide. once you have the front off, you will see the screws that hold the top to the front.
the drum baffles are held in with screws and if you can just use a bigger screw or just tighten the ones that are there.

SOURCE: Drum paddles keep falling out (Hotpoint BWD129 washer/dryer)

I had this problem, and I was advised by the guy who has apparently 'replaced hundreds of these bloody things on this housing estate' to never buy this machine because 'its cheap and ****'

However, if you bend the long central tab ,the one that looks like it does bugger all, upwards into the drum (carefully though, only bend it a little) this will increase the tab tension, and your lifters should last for over six months instead of the previous couple of washes mine was doing.
As for the comment on washing trainers, I put a single towel in my machine and the lifters broke...

Is blade loose or broken off? Either way, you must remove front panel (door panel) to expose the front drum end retainer brackets, which you must unscrew and remove to get at screws to tighten or replace missing paddle blade. You can get replacement part at www.repairclinic.com their very reasonable

Change has gotten in the drum and is making noise as it spins. How do I get to it?


Take the top off the dryer and remove (or loosen) the screws that hold the paddles in the drum
The change will slide out of the paddles inside the drum as you revolve the tub.

I have a Maytag MD55 dryter and one of the paddles


You remove the door screws with the triangular plastic plates and screws for the door on the opposite side. pull front forward and down. Remove the two bolts at top corners to raise top (unplug machine of course). screws are on outside of drum. When reassembling, make sure that the right screws go with the right area (The wider screws go in the triangular plates and the thinner go in the door) Make sure the door hinges are put in their grooves before reinserting the front.

I HAVE A MAYTAG NEPTUNE GAS DRYER MODEL 3MDE3000AYE. ONE OF THE THREE PADDLES INSIDE THE DRUM CAME OFF. I AM TRYING TO REATTACH IT TO THE DRUM, BUT THE SCREWS HOLDING THE PADDLE ARE INSIDE THE DRUM.


unplug the dryer,open the door,remove the two screws holding the door on and remove the other two screws opposite them,take off the door and pull the front panel off,spin the drum until the baffle you are trying to repair is in the bottom right hand corner and you can get at it like that

Baffles


Hi,
These are the paddle bits that are inside the drum? If so I had the same problem and I found that the lugs that hold them to the drum were broken.

I fixed mine by using plastic cable ties (=tie-wraps) passed through the slots in the paddles and through holes in the inner drum. It's fiddly getting the ends back out of the space between the outer and inner drums - I used another tie-wrap bent into a loop and stuffed into a suitable hole to "catch" the end of the tie I was fitting. It's not a pretty solution but it works and it is almost free!

If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.



Thanks, D
