Yes - right where the front panel meets the top panel of the dryer on both sides there are two clips. Insert a screwdriver into the clips and push up on top panel. You'll see the screws that hold the fins on the dryer. Tighten these screws or replace. Good luck...

My Maytag neptune dryer was tripping the circuit breaker. Then it just lost power and quit. What could cause this and how do I fix it.


This could be a bad breaker or a loose connection in the dryer plug/outlet. If the dryer just will not work at all and there is voltage at the dryer's outlet, then the dryer is defective. I would then suspect the motor as the culprit.

One of the tumbler blades is loose. How can I tighten the screws? I can see there are two screws holding the blade to the drum. What is the best way to get to the screws so I can tighten them? thanks


There are two clips that hold the lid down. they are located about one inch in from either side of the machine you can use a flat tip screwdriver and push them in and the lid will come up giving you access to the drum vein screws.

Our Neptune gas dryer seems to work fine but suddenly produces no heat. The vent is clear and the gas line attached and open.


Look at the glow ignitor. If it is broken then it needs to be replaced. About 20 dollars, and a 5/16 wrench will fix this issue, just make sure that you unplug the dryer before you start touching the electrical. This piece is located in the bottom of the dryer behind the back panel.

One of the dryer "blades" on the inside fell off


you just need to remove the front panel and then take out the drum. While the drum is out check the rollers and replace the skid pads.

Kenmore HE2 Dryer Blades Loose


Yes. Depends on your model. The top, front and rear come off of some. Very easy fix. Your screws should be on the floor under the dryer.

Neptune Dryer PF Error Code


PF is a 'Power Failure' code meaning the dryer power may be interrupted. The plug receptacle may be bad. Check the plug for proper tension. If feels loose, have the receptacle replaced. Inspect the plug for discoloration. (a sign of a bad receptacle). If all looks OK, Check the power connections at the dryer. If looks OK the electronic control may be defective.
