    How do you get the dryer open? I've got a thumping or banging noise when the drum rotates, both when the drum is loaded and when it is empty. I need to get inside to find the problem, but can't figure out how to open the cabinet. I'm sure there's an easy way, but I can't figure it out.

    I need to tighten one of the fins on the dryer drum. To do so I need to lift the top of the dryer up for access to the drum. How do I lift the dryer top up? I see a plastic latch mechanism just back from the front corners of the dryer when I pry up on the dryer lid. How do I unlatch them?

    Mine went loose too. I bought mine in 2002. I have a warranty, but who wants to pay $50 service call for a fin being loose?

On my 2006 Maytag Atlantis the top is held down by 4 screws 2 under the front and 2 on the back.
To remove the 2 on the front you need to remove the screws in the door and remove the door and front panel, than remove the 2 screws. The 2 screws on the back hold a white plastic fastener. After removing the screw, pry the bottom of the plastic fastener with a flat head screwdriver. Than with a very thin screwdriver or a thin pry bar wedge it under the top cover and just pop it off. Take care to not scratch your dryer while prying the plastic piece off.

Good Luck

Inside the drum, one of the metal things is loose. It appears that it is held on with screws, so they are probably loose. Could you tell me teh easiest way to access the outside of the drum so I can...


The top cover needs to be lifted to the rear of the dryer to access the outside of the drum and tighten the baffle screws. But before the top cove can be lifted, the front panel must be removed first. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Open the dryer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top panel lip.

Open the door then lift the front of the top panel and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.

Rotate the drum until the baffle screws are on top to tighten it. Reinstall the top panel and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

1 of 3 fins on inside is loose & hanging by 1 screw.


Access to the bottom of the baffles for tightening the screws requires the lifting of the top cover which also requires the removal of the front panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The top panel can be lifted only after the front panel is removed. Open the door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

The top panel is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top panel lip.

Open the door then lift the front of the top panel and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.

Rotate the drum until the baffle screws are positioned on the top for tightening.

Reinstall the top panel and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

Need to repair loose Baffle on Maytag Electric Dryer MDE7675AYW


On this model you will see 4 phillips screws in the recessed area when the door is open. 2 on each side. Take the 2 on the right out and then the 2 holding the hinges to the cabinet. Remove the door and then pull the front panel off by pulling toward you. Then you will see 2 screws holding the top down. 1 on each side near the top. Remove these and the top will lift back resting against the wall. From here you can get to the baffles. Good luck and thanks, Rick

Inside of drum baffles coming loose on maytag neptune dryer


Hello.

Remove the door and the plastic pieces on the opposite side. Take the front panel off. There will be one metal bracket on each side holding the top panel down. Remove those brackets and lift the top. Turn the drum where the loose baffle is up top and tighten loose screws or replace missing ones.

Scraping sound on left side as it goes around


You need to replace the tumbler guide rubber wheel. I would suggest to avoid further issues, replace all base guides.

It requires dismantling the Dryer.
