1st remove the door by removing the 2 screws on the hnges 1 on each hinge. Lift the door off and set aside. Then where the door closes you will see 2 more screws. Remove these and you can then pull the front panel off and set aside. Now you will have to use 5/16 nut driver or socket to dissassemble the rest to get back to the rollers. Good luck but 1st send the wife shopping so ya'll don't argue. Just kidding. Good luck and don't forget, take your time and don't get frustrated. you can do this job.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much. Nowhere else mentioned the door screws. It wasn't the rollers, but the drum slides on the front panel; belt was bad,too. Simple fix!"

Replacing pulley on Blower Housing


If there is no access panel on lower right side behind machine, you will have to lift the top of the machine from the front and remove the front panel to access the inside of the machine. While there it would be a good idea to check out the drum rollers if present and drum glides for wear. Also make sure that the blower wheel is not loose on the motor shaft. All of these will cause noise issues and are common.

How to remove top and front panel on Maytag Dryer model MDE9206AYW


To access these parts you first need to first lift the top up. This is done by pressing the clips inward. These are located on the left and right side in between the top and front on the dryer. When this is done the top will left up and backwards. Next, on the upper inside there are two screws, usually 5/16" bolts, that will need to removed to take the front off. Now you'll will access to the inside of the dryer. The belt will have to be removed to to take the drum out to test the rollers.

How do i access the back of a Model #MDE8600AYW - MAYTAG Dryer. i think i need to replace the drum rollers but dont think i can from the front panel.


yes it can be accessed from the front panel as it is located on the back right inside of the dryer.
1) unplug dryer
2) open door remove screws
3) with a flat tip screw driver pry gently up on the top corners it will pop
4) move front panel forward and disconnect door switch
5) sit panel aside
6) lift top lid of dryer 90 degrees it has clip/hinged on back
7) look to the right back of dryer, it looks like a spring in a metal box disconnect and replace.
Hope this helps Tim

How do I access the drum to tighten the dryer fins


Disconnect power to the dryer !!! Remove the 2 screws holding the door hinges on and remove the 2 screws opposite the door hinges . This will let you pull the top of the front panel outward and lift off the bottom clips . If you have enough room , slide your arm thru the front opening to tighten the screws . Otherwise , remove the 2 screws holding the clips for the top , 1 on each side , and lift the top , to get better access to the screws .

it could be your drum glides in the front of the drum or the rear center bearing or rear rollers, or the belt idler pulley or motor end bearings going bad,you will need to remove the front cover by removing lower kick panel screws near the floor and lifting upward on front cover,then remove top cover screws located under top cover and lift up and secure so as not to break wires to control panel,then rotate drum by hand and listen for noise location

My dryer is making a high pitched squeal?


it could be the rear drum bearing,the front drum glides/rollers or the drum belt is glazed,or the tensioner for the belt needs replacement,all of which require you to remove the front cover by removing the lower front panel screws near the floor, then lift up front cover like a car hood and there are spring clips that will let go, then remove top cover these screws are underneath top cover in front and you can replace those items

I HAVE A THUMPPING NOISE AS THE DRUM TURNS.


your thumpin noise is most likely a flat spot on your drum rollers. open the door and remove the 4 screws ( 2 on either side ). this will allow you to take the front panel off. after that is removed, there are 4 3/8 nut screws that hold on the front bulkhead. remove those screws and lift up on the bulkhead to remove ( note: you may need to remove the 2 nuts screws and brackets that secure the top so you can lift the top up ). after removing the bulkhead, you will need to undo the belt ( easiest if you do it from the back ) and take out the drum. your drum rollers are on the back of the dryer on the bottom. you can visually inspect them and if they are bad, they will need to be replaced.

Changing the drum rollers on a Maytag MDE4000AYW Neptune Dryer..


The instructions above are perfect for most Maytag Dryers, but the Neptune MDE4000AYW is built differently from most. To open it, undo the two screws that run through the door hinges, and remove the door, then undo the two other screws that are on the opposite side of the doorway. With these four screws out, you can lift the front panel UP and out. Make sure you unplug the dryer first :-)

Change rollers on a Maytag Neptune Dryer


You have to work from the front. Pull the top then the front then you will be able to see everything. Pretty self explanatory.
