Unplug the dryer,open the door,take out the four screws,2 holding the door and the other 2 opposite the door screws,remove the door and pull the front off, you should be able to get at the loose screws down in the right hand corner,if you want to open the top take out the screws on top and remove the brackets that hold the side and the top together

Remove loose change from washing machine


Depends where the loose change is? Some times it caught between the middle paddle and the basket.Tthat I just use a small flat tip screw driver and finger, trap it and lift carefully out. If the coins are underneath the basket then its more involved. First, tape the door down and lift top cap and prop up aside. Then remove tubs cap off of tub. Next inside basket in the center, remove center cap off of paddle. Then remove bolt from center. Remove paddle." This I use a screw driver small enough to fit in paddle holes, one on each side to lift equally,back and forth." You will find six phillips head screws under paddle you need to remove. This should be able to lift the basket out. Walla!! T
here's the bottom of the tub and anything lying there should be removed. If you want to really inspect it there are two 5/16th head screws that hold a protective plastic plate that should be removed and checked sense your there any ways. good luck to you and hope this helps.

It's like the motor is going in slow motion when kneading...only about 10 min into the process too...then it simply doesn't turn anymore, like the dough is too stiff or heavy to move...


Hi, It could be a few things. It could be the paddle is sticking. Take the pan and paddle out of the machine and see if you can spin the paddle freely by hand. If it spins freely that is great. If it sticks then the sealed bearing that the paddle rotates in is failing. If everything is okay, then the belt is slipping and is too loose or is worn out. The dough gets thicker and requires more work for the belt. If the belt is loose then the paddle won't turn. The belt and motor is located in the base of the machine. Be sure to unplug before you check this out. Also, make sure the pan is installed correctly in the machine. Good luck...Hank

I have a Maytag MD55 dryter and one of the paddles


You remove the door screws with the triangular plastic plates and screws for the door on the opposite side. pull front forward and down. Remove the two bolts at top corners to raise top (unplug machine of course). screws are on outside of drum. When reassembling, make sure that the right screws go with the right area (The wider screws go in the triangular plates and the thinner go in the door) Make sure the door hinges are put in their grooves before reinserting the front.

Fin / paddle has come loose in the drum.


Hi,


The paddles are the plastic things inside the metal drum. they are held in by tabs that slide into slots in the drum and a metal tab from the drum flips over a ledge underneath the paddle.
if its loose you may need to replace it, they are available as a spare part and come with instructions. you will need to varify which version you have by counting the bumps on the end of the padle, should be 2 or 3.
basically you put a small screwdriver down on of the holes in the top of the paddle, i think the 3rd one, to push the metal drum tab down enough to be able to pull the paddle towards you and out of it's slots. carefull not to push the tab down too far as it will bend inside the drum and isd pain to bend back again.

Any further help, Let me know.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Dryer Paddle Loose


Take the four screws, out of the door and remove it. The front of the dryer will fold down and lift off, you will be able to see in side the dryer. If you want to lift the top remove the screws that are now exposed. Along with the brackets the top will now lift up.

This should allow you to access the tumbler.
