Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Electric Dryer
How do I access the bottom of the fin to tighten the remaining 2 screws?
Access to the bottom of the baffles for tightening the screws requires the lifting of the top cover which also requires the removal of the front panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.
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.
Rotate the drum until the baffle screws are positioned on the top for tightening.
Reinstall the top panel and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.
