OPEN THE DOOR. INSIDE THE OPENING ARE FOUR SCREWS 2 ON EACH SIDE. REMOVE THESE. EACH SIDE OF THE FRONT PANEL KIND ROLL OF FROM INSIDE TO OUT AT THE TOP. OR JUST PULL. BRING THE FRONT PANEL OUT TO A 45 DEGREE ANGLE. CLOSE THE DOOR AND LIFT UP ON THE FRONT PANEL. AT THE FRONT OF EACH TOP CORNER THERE ARE HOOKS HOLDING DOWN THE TOP. THEY ARE SCREWED IN PLCE WITH A 5/16 TH HEX HEAD SCREW. REMOVE THOSE AND THE TOP CAN LIFT UP.

Squeak coming from the rear center of the machine while running. Tempo of squeak is fast ... 4 per second. How do I get inside to tighten a belt or WD40 the drum wheel?


to remove the front panel, remove the four screw on the inside of the dryer, two on the left white plastic pieces, two on the right the door hinges, the hinges lift up and out once screws are removed, panel lifts off, you will see how the top is held down, two screws one on each side. Here is a web site that will help with the rest, Good Luck Tim

Inside the dryer there are 3 bars that stick out to help tumble the clothes. One of them has come loose and I'm not sure how to tighten it. It appears to be attached with screws that come thru the drum...


With the front off look up in the top left and right corners for some screws that hold the top of the dryer to the side panels. Depending on your model, there can be different styles. The old maytags used 3/8 in screws up inside the corners and the newer models had 5/16 screws right up front.
Once you get the front of the top loose you will be able to lift it like the hood on a car to gain access to the drum.
Rotate the drum by hand to put your loose fin at the top and tighten up your screws. Sometimes the screws will round out the holes on the drum too much and you may want to put a washer on the screw to secure it better.
Good luck!

Inside the drum, one of the metal things is loose. It appears that it is held on with screws, so they are probably loose. Could you tell me teh easiest way to access the outside of the drum so I can...


The top cover needs to be lifted to the rear of the dryer to access the outside of the drum and tighten the baffle screws. But before the top cove can be lifted, the front panel must be removed first. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Open the dryer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top panel lip.

Open the door then lift the front of the top panel and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.

Rotate the drum until the baffle screws are on top to tighten it. Reinstall the top panel and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

The paddle has come loose inside my dryer how can I get the lid open to get to the back of the drum


take the 2 screws out of the door and take out the other 2 screws opposite the hindge screws,close the door,now grab the sides where you took the screws out of and pull forward and this will remove the front panel,take out the 2 top 5/16 screws one on each side that go through the metal holders,they are the screws closest top the top lid,remember how the holders hook into the top cover and the catch is in the middle of each piece,now lift the top and spin the drum so the baffle(paddle) is on the top and you can get at the screws to tighten them,the top doesn't lift to far up so you might have to lay down and tighten them from the floor,this is how i've done it ,hope this helps

Inside of drum baffles coming loose on maytag neptune dryer


Hello.

Remove the door and the plastic pieces on the opposite side. Take the front panel off. There will be one metal bracket on each side holding the top panel down. Remove those brackets and lift the top. Turn the drum where the loose baffle is up top and tighten loose screws or replace missing ones.
