Move the front to the side ... the drum will almost take itself off. Normally, the drum rides on the front door opening.

There are nornally two wheels in the rear

good luck ... it is easher than you think. tuff part is getting it back together without a band aid :-)

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.

My dryer is making a high pitched squeal?


it could be the rear drum bearing,the front drum glides/rollers or the drum belt is glazed,or the tensioner for the belt needs replacement,all of which require you to remove the front cover by removing the lower front panel screws near the floor, then lift up front cover like a car hood and there are spring clips that will let go, then remove top cover these screws are underneath top cover in front and you can replace those items

Sounds like I have a coin in the neptune dryer under one of the fins inside the drum. how do I get it out?


Disassembly of the front and top of your dryer can be found in the Service Manual at the link below beginning on page 9-1. Once the top is raised turn the drum slowly clockwise until the screws for the vane you wish to remove are at the top. Loosen the screws just a few turns and turn the drum until the coin or article falls out. Repeat for each vane until you find the noisy object. Reverse the disassembly to reassemble.

I HAVE A THUMPPING NOISE AS THE DRUM TURNS.


your thumpin noise is most likely a flat spot on your drum rollers. open the door and remove the 4 screws ( 2 on either side ). this will allow you to take the front panel off. after that is removed, there are 4 3/8 nut screws that hold on the front bulkhead. remove those screws and lift up on the bulkhead to remove ( note: you may need to remove the 2 nuts screws and brackets that secure the top so you can lift the top up ). after removing the bulkhead, you will need to undo the belt ( easiest if you do it from the back ) and take out the drum. your drum rollers are on the back of the dryer on the bottom. you can visually inspect them and if they are bad, they will need to be replaced.

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 :-)
