Pop the top, remove the front, the drum will come free. Take pictures of how the belt goes around the motor. Fix your "fin" and reverse.



The top is held down by spring clips.

Maytag atlantis dryer all the sudden will not turn on or make any noise.


I suspect the door safety switch is broken. If not check one, some dryers have two, high limits. These are safety switches that keep the tumbler from spinning when door opened, and prevent the dryer from overheating

Maytag neptune dryer has three tumbler arms and one is loose. I can see set screws but do not know how to get to them.


Unplug Unit.

Refer to pages 5-2 and 5-3 of the manual below (Should be similar to yours) to see how to expose the drum by lifting the top of the machine. Then turn drum very slowly and only until the screw holes for the missing fins are within your reach. Most of these dryers have two sizes of fins make sure you order the right one if you need to replace them.

Good Luck

Loose Tumbler Fin In dryer


most maytag dryers have push type clips that hold the top to the front. look between the top and front with a light and find them about 3-4 inches from the outer edges. once you get the top up then there will be screws that hold the drum baffles to the drum. just put a new screw in them and all will be ok. no need to replace them, just use new screws.

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.

Red silicone glue will not hold the "fin" under operation. You will have to access the outside of the drum to reattach the fin Avoid removing the drum unless you have the equipment to re-install the bushing that holds the drum. Make sure you disconnect the power and gas.

A tumbler fin


This isn't much help, but those fins will break off. I have had them break off. I am ordering some new ones, called "baffles" and will be installing them. I hope I can the top open on the machine.
