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 :-)

Look at the front of the dryer. About 3 inches from the bottom of the dryer on the far left and far right are two philips head screws. Look real close as they are hidden. Take they screws out then the bottom pulls out towards you and the top slides down. After you get that off, taking the rest of the dryer apart is easy. NOTE: When taking the belt off note the postion and at which way the belt is sitting on the drum, also note how it goes around the pulley as you will catch heck putting it back toghter if you dont... GOODLUCK:)

Neptune dryer makes noise


Check the blower to make sure it is properly secured on the motor shaft. Also check all of the bearings: motor, tensioner pulley and drum support rollers or drum bearings. You may have to disengage the belt to check the motor and tensioner.

Model mde4000ayw wont heat up


Could be one of the limits on the heater housing or the element itself. To get to them on this dryer you must remove the door then you can get the goalpost shaped front panel off. Then the drum support can be removed and drum itself. The Applianceman has a marvelous youtube video which shows how to get into the dryer.

What causes my Maytag Neptune Dryer to squeak loudly when running?


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine.
Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical consol with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of 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, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

The beater bar in my Neptune dryer modeL # MED5500AYW has come off and needs to be replaced.


It sounds like you are referring to the drum baffles when you say "beater bar". If that is so, you need to remove the front panel then raise the top cover to access the baffles mounting screws outside the drum. Below is the link to the procedure I posted previously.

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.
