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 !!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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 :-)

Our maytag neptune dryer is squeaking. Can u please tell me the part needed? thanks


Hello,

the most common problem on this unit is the rollers, one sits above the heater and the bearing dries out. I provided you with two links one where you can purchase the drum rollers you need two, the other link explains how to access the dryer to repair it.

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.

How do I gain access to the motor on my Neptune dryer


Open the dryer door.
Remove four screws - two are holding the door and two are holding plastic pieces opposite the door.
With the screws released, the front pannel of the unit will tilt forward and can be removed.
With the front pannel out of the way, two metal retainers found at the top front of the dryer can be released which allows for the top of the unit to be lifted up and removed if desired.
From this point, four more screws found on the front face were removed which allowed the front ducting and front part of the drum to be removed.
The drum was pulled out (work the belt to the rear of the drum while extracting it - optionally, you can release the belt tension by reaching in and removing the belt from the idler)
The motor is accessable.

Professionals may want to pull all the screws from the side pannel and remove it for easier access.

How do you remove the top off of a maytag neptune dryer 5500 series?


Take off the 4 phillips head screws around the door. the 2 sides will fold out, pull and the bottom panel will follow. after you have removed the panel you will have access to the frame. you will need to remove the top 2 5/16th screws. you will then lift the top panel and have a access to the top of the drum.
