Belt came loose

Dear Sirs,

My wife started our Neptune Dryer, came back in the room to check on it and the dryer stopped spinning, I removed the door, removed the two 5/16 screws, lifted the top like a car hood and found the belt just loose in there, I am not sure how it goes back on correctly... Could you please direct me?

BELTS DON'T JUST FALL OFF THERE MUST BE AN UNDER LYING PROBLEM.WHEN YOU FIGURE THAT OUT TO PUT THE BELT ON GET ON YOUR HANDS AND KNEES
REACH IN ONE ARM ON EACH SIDE UNDERNEATH THE DRUM WITH YOUR RIGHT HAND GRAB THE BELT (BE SURE ITS NOT TWISTED) WRAP IT AROUNG THE MOTOR PULLEY.
HOLD IT THERE, NOW WITH THE LEFT HAND PUSH THE TENSIONER PULLEY TOWARDS THE MOTOR
THE BELT SHOULD GO OVER THE MOTOR PULLEY FROM THE RIGHT SIDE. SO IF HOOKED UP CORECTLY THE BELT WILL GO DOWN THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE TUB-AROUND THE LEFT SIDE OF THE TENSIONER PULLEY TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE MOTOR PULLEY THEN BACK UP THE LEFT SIDE OF THE DRUM
GOOD LUCK=)

My Maytag Neptune dryer doesn't stop unless I open the dryer door.


You will be needing to replace the timer assembly, which is the part that has all the wires attached and is found inside the top of the machine. It is what the dial is fastened to.
Be blessed.

Grinding noise. How do I open top?


disconnect power and then you will need to start by taking the door off, open door and remove the four screws holding hinges on, lift up and out once screw are removed from hinges, then take the other four screws off on the opposite side as these are fillers(if you want to reverse how your door opens) remove front panel, then on the top corners remove the screws, top will lift up just make sure you have enough room so that the top can rest against the wall. Good Luck Tim. I would check the drum rollers and glides:

The fin on the Neptune Dryer has come loose and I need to remove the side panel on the dryer to replace the two screws that hold one of the three fins in place. It would be simple if I knew exactly how to...


Remove the 2 screws holding the door and the 2 screws on the other side of the door opening . Pull the front panel foreward and lift off . If still not enough room to reach under to tighten , remove the 2 screws (1 on each side , holding the top down , then lift top . DISCONNECT POWER BEFORE DOING ANY WORK .

Maytag Neptune dryer won't start/


I do not have that specific dryer but try these simple steps.
Maybe they will help you.
1. Shut the electric breaker off to the dryer for about 30 seconds and and back on.
2. Open the dryer door and inspect the switch that tells the dryer the door is closed. work it by hand just to make sure it is not stuck.
3. Spin the timer controls to another setting and see if the other setting will work.

That's all I've got for now...

Neptune Dryer Time keeps going forever


your problem is most likely an issue with the start button. if it is stuck, the dryer will keep running even though it has passed the off position. your start switch probably needs replaced. Joe

Neptune Dryer


My maytag neptune dryer quit heating, after my wife changed the temp setting on the console from regular, to extra low drying temperature. The heating element reads 10.5 ohms. The thermal cutoff reads 0.02 ohms. The hi-limit thermo reads 0.02 ohms. The power coming into the dryer is 240 volts. What can I check or need to replace.
