Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I was fixing my Maytag Neptune dryer model no. MDE3000AYW. It had been making a knocking noise and I followed the instructions to repair this problem. I believe I've fixed that problem, HOWEVER, I cannot get the drive belt back on to check it out. In reassembling it, I simply looped the belt around the drum and reassembled the entire dyer with the exception of the front pannel. I've followed the instructions from the maunal which was sent to me, but I still can't figure it out.

Have you loosened you belt adjustment bolt all the way? I have never had a problem. Are you sure you ran the belt properly? You have the manual already. There is not much of anymore info that some one here could give you. i could send you a PDF of my manual but you said you already have it. Sorry not to be of more help. Best of luck.

Just brougth used maytag neptune dryer.model MDE3000AYW


If you are connecting a power cord with a 3-wire configuration, you match the corresponding wire colors from the power cord to the wires on the terminal block in the back of the dryer. The correct color-code is as follows:

RED - HOT (120VAC)
BLACK - HOT (120VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0VAC)*

*There should be a ground strap or ground wire connected to neutral at the terminal block in a 3-wire configuration.

NOTE: If the wires are not color-coded, the outer two wires (Left and Right) are the HOT leads. The center conductor is Neutral.

If you have any questions, you can refer to this link for further explanation:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575913-installing_a_220_vac_appliance_cord

This explains the difference in 4-wire and 3-wire configurations. I hope this helps you.

- very loud squeaking sound


Hello JewettKann,

Typically, on the Maytag Neptune dryers, it is the felt gasket that is the cause and source of the noise you're hearing.

There is a felt gasket that runs all around the front and rear of the dryer drum and cabinet door edge (on the backside lip). As the dryer ages, this felt wears out and needs to be replaced to prevent the awful screeching sounds you'll experience, once the metal to metal contact becomes constant.

You can view the parts that need replacing at the following link (Item #17B on the drawing) Called a sound damper pad on some models.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=MDE4000AZW&productCategoryId=0151200&brandId=3048&brandDescription=MAYTAG&modelName=MAYTAG-LAUNDRY&diagramPageId=00004&componentDescription=DOOR&documentId=M0402169&blt=06


This was a fairly common problem with the Neptune line. You can see for yourself by simply turning the drum with your hand and feeling and listening for the rubbing/grinding noise, along the top of the door opening.
If you can get the complete model number off your dryer, you can select the exact line drawing and parts list at the link below to make sure you're looking at your exact model.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Maytag neptune dryer making load noise seems unbalanced


Sounds more like the dryer drum seal is deteriorating.
If the dryer tumbles the belt is intact.
To access the belt.
Open the door.
Remove 4 screws on right and left side of the door opening.
Raise the door on the hinge side and remove it.
Pull the front panel forward and remove it.
From there you can see what to do next.
