Re: change rollers on a Maytag Neptune Dryer

You have to work from the front. Pull the top then the front then you will be able to see everything. Pretty self explanatory.

Maytag performa electric dyer makes dragging noise drum turns but acts like something catches and makes a dragging or scraping sound

assuming nothing is stuck around drum pull off the front and check the fan. If it is noisy for a few seconds after you stop the dryer then the fan may be stripped on motor shaft. while off you can check the front glides and the rear rollers

I have a Neptune electric dryer model MDE4000ayw. The clothes keep getting stuck around the barrel as the dryer is operating. What is the problem? It also makes a very loud noise as it operates.

You need to disconnect the dryer from power source, open the unit, it sound like the drum has holes on it that stucked your clothes when turning. this problem common to all maytag dryers. The front support glide had chop up . You might likely change the drum or tumbler.

Comment if the solution solve your problem

Hi I have a Maytag MDE4000AYW dryer. It is making a squeeking sound off and on when it runs. I took the front off and kinda lifted the drum up and down and it made it without the belt actually turning,...

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
You did the right thing by removing the front of the machine, that is how you check the drum rollers, idler arm with pulley and the motor.
Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Neptune MDE4000Ayw squeaking when running

if its squeaking it means that in wants to be grease or lubed
all mechanical devices need some form of maintence to run properly lube the motor the drum the track wheels but not with wd40 use appliance lubericant or call your local maytag man to come out and do routine maintenance on your neptune

also to the guru if there was a foreign object stuck between drum and body it would be like throwing a monkey wrench into a clock towers gears it would slam to a hault so i dont believe in the object stuck theory

Changing the drum rollers on a Maytag MDE4000AYW Neptune Dryer..

The instructions above are perfect for most Maytag Dryers, but the Neptune MDE4000AYW is built differently from most. To open it, undo the two screws that run through the door hinges, and remove the door, then undo the two other screws that are on the opposite side of the doorway. With these four screws out, you can lift the front panel UP and out. Make sure you unplug the dryer first :-)
