We have an MDE6800AYW. One of the paddles has come lose. How do I get in to be able to secure the paddle with the bolts?


Hello Kenneth, welcome to FixYa.

I'll start by saying your post indicates it is a MDE6800 Maytag dryer. I believe based on your description, t
his is similar to what you'll be looking for...

If you'd like to post back with an email address I can send you a repair manual that can guide in the tear-down process. Let me know and we can go from there.

Once you've gain access to the inner cabinet you'll have little trouble replacing the tumbler/paddle...gaining access is the "need to know" part or hard part...though not that hard. If this isn't the part in question, let me know...it's just my interpretation based on the description.

**unplug the appliance and turn off the gas supply before attempting any service...safety first**


Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance and I'll do whatever I can. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

How to repair paddle inside drum paddle that fell off


To replace this "paddle" (It's callde a baffle), you'll need to access the outside of the tumbler (drum), by lifting the top.

Begin by removing the door. Remove the two hinge screws. You will then be able to rock the door and hinge out of the slot in the front panel. Next, remove the cover plates just opposite the hinges.

Now you can pull the front panel off the retaining clips and rock it downward, away from the rest of the cabinet. Once it clears the top, you can lift it off the bottom hooks. Just set it aside.

You will now see two screws (hex-head, 5/16 inch), just under the corners of the dryer top. Remove them and rotate the brackets that hook into the top. Removing the brackets will allow you to now swing the top upwards to expose the tumbler.

Just turn the tumbler until you can see the screw holes for the babble holding screws. You may get lucky and find the three baffle screws in the bottom of the cabinet. Re-install, check the others, and re-assemble the dryer in reverse order, and you're done!

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.

My affinity washer (front load ATF6000ES) is leaking detergent


are you using he detergent?. if what you see on floor is pure detergent then look at dispenser housing for cracks. remove drawer, open, depress lever in back and pull out, to see inside housing. If the screw or mounting for the loose paddle (baffle) broke and slammed housing in some way then you would also have a hole in the tub. You can easily remove top, 3 screws in back to check this. If tub is broke, buy new machine!
baffles are usually attached with screws from outside basket, requiring removal from tub

The paddle came off inside my Neptune Dryer


The screws for the paddle can be accessed by removing the small back panel. If they are stripped out you will need a new paddle.

Metal noise under tumbler


You can try to locate the stuff by removing the bose right under your tub; of course by disconnecting all the wall electrics. Access to this is by removing the back panel.
