How do i remove the back of my 5500 neptune shell?


you dont. it is serviced from the front. open the door, there are two screws on each side in the door frame, remove them (the door will stay without the screws until pulled up and out). pull the front panel toward you from both sides, then pull up out of the brackets on bottom. you can service any part in the cabinet from there. if you are removing the drum, youll see one screw on each side holding the top down, remove and top hinges up and out of the way. shane

My Maytag Neptune dryer suddenly quit working. The light comes on inside, but it won't start.


This could be several easy fixes. Check to see if the door switch is working if it is not clicking when pushed this could be the issue. try resetting the breaker, if it's not getting both legs of the 240v it won't start. or the start button could be defective. This is where I would start (and most of the time finish) looking. With some common tools and an ohm meter you should be able to find the problem.

I have a Maytag Neptune dryer that has one of the agitators? that have come loose and am trying to figure out how to get to it to tighten it back up. It's an MDE5500AYW. Thanks


THE FRONT OF THE DRYER IS REMOVED BY OPENING THE DOOR AND REMOVING THE TWO SCREWS HOLDING THE HINGES TO THE FRONT PANEL. ALSO, REMOVE THE TWO SCREWS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE OPENING. PULL THE FRONT PANEL TOWARD YOU AT THE TOP. IT WILL BE HINGED AT THE BOTTOM. ONCE YOU HAVE IT TILTED TOWARD YOU, PICK IT UP OFF THE BOTTOM HINGES.
THERE ARE TWO RETAINING CLIPS HOLDING THE TOP DOWN AT THE FRONT CORNERS. THESE CLIPS ARE HELD ON BY A 5/16TH HEX HEAD SCREW. REMOVE THE SCREW AND CLIP AND YOU CAN LIFT THE TOP. IT IS HINGED AT THE BACK AND YOU CAN RAISE IT UP AND BACK OUT OF THE WAY. YOUY NOW HAVE ACCESS TO THE OUTER SIDE OF THE DRUM. ROTATE EACH OF THE BAFFLES TO THE TOP AND TIGHTEN EACH SCREW AS THEY COME TO THE TOP.
