Tip

Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers Front Panel and Top...


Most of the internal components of Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers can be accessed with the removal of the front panel and lifting of the top cover. The top cover can only be lifted after the front panel is removed. Make sure that power to the machine is disconnected prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The first step is the removal of 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 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 cover lip. Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.

The internal components of the dryer can now be accessed. Reinstall the top cover and the front panel in reverse of the removal steps.

This procedure is also applicable to Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers. The only difference is the dispenser bezel removal.

How do i take off top of dryer to change belt


Unplug the dryer! My dryer top is hinged in the back, so I just gently pry up the front of the top after unscrewing the lint trap. Then there are two screws near the top of the front panel holding the front panel to the sides. Remove screws, then the front panel lifts up. The drum will drop down. You can now remove the drum since the belt is broken. Check the back rollers, clean the motor, clean out the inside of frame, replace the belt - making sure it is fed through the idler properly, install the drum- working the belt around the drum, making sure the belt is not twisted and in the correct position on the drum. Reinstall the front panel, making sure the drum is seated properly on the back panel and on the front panel, now you can lower the top and have at it. Your dryer may be alittle bit different but a dryer is still a dryer.

How do you remove cabrio front panel


Hi


To remove the front panel, there are hidden clips in between the front panel and the top. Use a putty knife in the corners of the crack and push the tabs. Then lift up on the top panel. Now reach in the dryer and remove the screws that hold the front panel on.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Should the dryer be placed on the front to make it easier to take the back off? That's what a repair person did and when they turned it back on it made a serious screaching noise.


There's no such instruction from the manufacturer to lay the dryer on its front when removing the back panel. The back panel can be easily removed with the dryer in upright position. Only leaning the dryer a few degrees is advisable by propping up the bottom edge, not laying it on any side, when access to the inside of the dryer is necessary. Otherwise, the internal moving parts will likely dislodge and cause problems like yours.

How to remove the front panel of a maytag neptune gas dryer


Removal of the front panel requires the removal of the top cover and the console. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the 2 screws attaching the top cover to the rear of the dryer then slide it rearward to clear the screw head from the top cover flange and lift the cover off the dryer cabinet.

Remove the screws securing the heater PCB board and disconnect the black and white wiring harness connectors from the board.

Remove the four screws attaching the console to the washer cabinet and rotate the console down to remove it from the dryer.

Remove the four screws attaching the top of the front panel to the cabinet and the two screws at the bottom of the door opening.

Pull the front panel forward and disconnect the interior light wiring harness then lift the front panel off the tabs across the bottom and move it away from the dryer.

Reinstall the front panel, the console, and the top cover in reverse of the removal steps.

How to I get to the drum? The fins in the drom have come unscrewed and fallen off. I need to get to the outside of the drum and screw them back on.


Access to the outside of the drum requires the removal of the front then the top panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

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 screw holes appear at the top of the drum and screw the baffles back into position.

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

Note: This guide is for Maytag Sloped-Front Dryers.

My Maytag dryer Model DE308 is very noisy. sounds like something is catching or grinding. can I fix this?


most common cause is the failure, or wear of the rollers at the rear,
the drive belt places a lot of torque on the drum, and it has rollers to support this force, in addition to nylon guides as the front has

good roller
620711e.jpg
worn roller
360f8b6.jpg

most dryers access from the front, the front panel and door come off,
here are generic removal instructions

with dryer unplugged examine lower front panel.
If there are two screws at lower corners
  • remove screws
  • swing front panel up from bottom
  • unhook top clips
  • undo door switch wires
  • set panel and door aside
If there are no screws
  • remove llint screeen from top
  • remove 2 screws from under lint screen
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade
    push spring clips at front top corners
  • tilt top up
  • remove 1 screw each side 1/3 way from top of dryer
  • tilt front panel down
  • undoor door switch wires
  • set front panel aside
Common to both types
  • reach under drum to belt tensioner, pull tensioner to end of spring travel
  • unhook belt from motor and tensioner
  • withdraw drum forward
  • examine rollers felts nylon guides
replace rollers in pairs if worn
replace nylon glides if worn
replace felts if worn, the back one may wear before the front one,
if the dryer is the open drum type,
