Question about Maytag Neptune MDE4000 Electric Dryer
The top panel can be lifted only after the front panel is removed. Open the 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 panel 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.
Reinstall the top panel and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

SOURCE: Replacing belt on dryer
FIRST, OPEN THE DOOR AND REMOVE TWO PHILLIPS HEAD SCREWS ON EACH SIDE OF THE OPENING. TWO GO THROUGH THE HINGES, AND TWO ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE OPENING. THEN, PULL THE OUTER PANEL FORWARD FROM THE SIDES NEAR THE TOP. IT IS HINGED AT THE BOTTOM. LIFT IT OFF THE HINGE WHEN YOU HAVE THE TOP EDGE PULLED FORWARD. YOU WILL HAVE ABOUT SIX OR EIGHT 5/16 HEX HEAD SCREWS TO REMOVE
AND THE FRONT BULKHEAD WILL THEN COME FORWARD TO REMOVE. AT THIS POINT, THE FRONT OF THE DRUM IS EXPOSED AND YOU CAN SLIP THE NEW BELT ON FROM THE FRONT. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE DIAGRAM ON THE BAG FOR PROPER ALIGNMENT AROUND THE IDLER AND MOTOR PULLEYS. IT WILL BE EASIER TO INSTALL THE BELT IF YOU LAY IT IN THE GROOVE NEAR THE REAR OF THE DRUM, BUT THAT IS NOT IT'S FINAL RESTING PLACE.
AFTER YOU HAVE THE BELT AROUND THE PULLEYS, REPLACE THE FRONT BULKHEAD WITH FOUR SCREWS, ONE FOR EACH CORNER. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T FOLD OVER THE FELT SEAL AROUND THE FAN HOUSING. SLIDE THE LINT DUCT PORT INSIDE THE FELT SEAL. ONCE THE BULKHEAD IS IN PLACE, PULL THE BELT OUT OF THE GROOVE AND SLIDE IT TOWARD YOU UNTIL IT LAYS ON TOP OF THE MARKS THAT THE OLD BELT LEFT BEHIND.
ROTATE THE DRUM MANUALLY COUNTER CLOCKWISE TO BE SURE THE BELT IS ALIGNED AROUND THE DRUM.
IF IT IS NOT, THE BELT WON'T STAY ON THE PULLEYS.
AFTER YOU ARE SURE IT IS O.K., REASSEMBLE THE REST OF THE DRYER IN REVERSE ORDER.

ngfam1 At your service!
There are many variables!
Every year thousands of people die trying to repair electrical appliances them selves!
You are worth more than that!
Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505 near me they only charge $75 service call which is reasonable in today s market!
Unfortunely, another point to consider!!
How old is the appliance?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!
You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

U might want to look on the back of the dryer to see if there is a panel to take off. If not the hole top will have to come off. Is the top made on the rest of the dryer or is there a split between it.
