Open the door, remove the two screws holding the hinge and on the opposite side, pull the front panel towards you then lift off. you will then see two 5/16 screws holding the lid down.

How do you install the belt on a Maytag Atlantis Dryer?

Ya gotta remove the front panel to get to the innards on this beast.
Take the door off. Opposite from the door hinges is 2 more screws that are used to hold the goalpost shaped front panel on there. Once them screws is out the panel pops off and you raise the top after removing the holddown hooks.
Then you gotta remove the front shroud and get the drum out. Give it a good cleaning. Oil the rollers.

Maytag Atlantis dryer no heat

The heating element and thermostat are located behind the front panel of the dryer. you will need to remove the door, then the retaining screws. the heater / element is located on the left side as you are facing the front of the dryer and has to sheet meta screws (upper back top / and front bottom) which will need to be removed. the unit has several colored wires for the thermostat and switch. remove these (remember which goes where) and the enitre unit will come out easily.

Maytag Atlantis Model 6400AEW Dryer bought 2003

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
