Here is how to remove the front and the top.

-Open the door, remove the 4 screws, (2 from the hinges and 2 from the open side of the door that are opposite the hinges)

- Pull on the front top of the front panel from both sides it will release and then lift the entire front panel off

- you may be able to get to the belt from here, but if not remove the two screws close to the top that hold the green clips from the front to the top and remove the green clips The top should be free

-lift the door off the frame and set aside.

- you should be able to see how the rest comes apart from there

Machine will not start


THE MOST COMMON THING WITH THIS WASHER IS THE LID SWITCH. THERE IS A TEMPORARY & EASY WAY TO FIGURE THIS OUT. FIRST OPEN THE LID. LOOK AT THE BOTTOM JUST A LITTLE RIGHT OF CENTER WHEN THE LID IS UP. DO YOU SEE A LITTLE WHITE PLASTIC PIECE? THIS IS THE STRIKE FOR THE SWITCH. IF IT IS MISSING YOU NEED THAT. IF IT IS THERE LOWER YOUR LID SLOWLY UNTIL CLOSED ALL THE WAY. LISTEN TO HEAR A CLICK WHEN DOING THIS. A CLICK WILL DETERMINE IF THE SWITCH IS BEING ACTIVATED AND THE POSSIBILITY THAT IT IS GOOD. IF YOU HEAR THIS CLICK AND THE WASHER WILL NOT START THEN YOU MAY HAVE A TIMER ISSUE. IF YOU HAVE NO CLICK THEN CONTINUE. UNPLUG WASHER. REMOVE THE 3 SCREWS AT THE TOP OF THE CONSOLE. WITH ONE HAD ON THE CONSOLE TOP CENTER STARTED TO PULL FOREWARD. PUSH BACK AT THE BOTTOM CENTER WITH THE OTHER HAND. THE LID SWITCH HAS 2 RED, 2YELLOW, 2 WHITE AND 1 BLACK WIRE TO IT. UNPLUG THIS. ON THE BACK LEFT CORNER OF THE LID SWITCH THERE IS A LOCK TAB. WITH ON HAND LIFT THE WASHER LID UP 3 INCHES OR SO. WITH THE OTHER HAND LIFT THE LOCK TAB ON THE LID SWITCH WHILE PULLING FOREWARD ON IT. PUL LID SWITCH OUT AND PUSH THE PLUNGER IN. DOES IT CLICK? IF YES THEN FIND A VERY TINY SCREW TO SCREW IN THAT END OF THE PLUNGER. YOU ONLY NEED TO EXTEND THAT PLUNG LESS THAN 1/8 TO 3/32NDS OF AN INCH. YOU CAN ALSO GLU SOMETHING TO IT. REASSEMBLE ONCE THIS IS DONE.

Maytag dryer LDE5004ACW not turning how do I open to check belt? Solution #1 doesn't explain how to ''pop the top'' ? There are tabs underneath lid in the front but pushing them in doesn't allow lid to be...


Yes, on your model, the front comes off first. Check the front of the dryer for two phillips head screws, about ankle high, one on each side. Remove them and pull front panel up from bottom, then un-hinge it from the dryer's top. Dryer top will not have to come off. After you take the front panel off, you will be able to take four screws out of the front drum support frame to allow that to be removed if tyou want to change a belt (or remove the drum).

I have a Neptune model MDE9700AYW dryer that wont start


Check to see if the little tab in the door jam, which causes the dryer to turn off, is broken or bent. If its bent you may just need to bend it back.

Maytag Electric Dryer Stopped Working


Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

Maytag stacked washer/dryer Model LS7804


OK it may be one of 2 things. I would check the lid switch first. On some maytags the have a lid switch that if it is not working properly it will not let the washer fill. If it will not fill the washer will not wash because the pressure switch did not activate the timer to wash. If the switch checks good you might have a bad timer. If you open the control panel you will find a tech sheet with the wiring diagram. I would follow the fill cycle and check the components. You might also check the water valve to make sure its ok too. But its very rear that both the hot and cold would go at the same time. Good luck!
