Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers Front Panel and Top Cover Removal


Most of the internal components of Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers can be accessed with the removal of the front panel and lifting of the top cover. The top cover can only be lifted after the front panel is removed. Make sure that power to the machine is disconnected prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The first step is the removal of 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 machine.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by 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 cover lip.

Remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off. Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the machine.

The internal components of the machine can now be accessed. Reinstall the top cover and the front panel in reverse of the removal steps.

This procedure is also applicable to Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers (Maytag Neptune Dryers). The only difference is the dispenser bezel removal.

Washer leaks after it starts to agitate. It seems to be coming from the front of the washer. Thanks for any help.


To find where the leak is coming from, remove the 2 bottom bolts on the lower kick panel and remove panel. Next, remove the 2 bolts holding the upper front panel and remove it also. Now, with the front panels removed, run the washer and look for where it is leaking from. Repost your observations.

How can i lift the top of the washer to clean around the top of the tub


Hi, thanks for using FixYa.com! It depends on the model you have, but most newer style Maytag washers have a clip on each side between the front panel and the top assembly. With a putty knife, depress the clips and the top should hinge up. On older Maytags, there are 2 Phillips screws at the bottom of the front panel to remove and the front panel comes off. Once removed, there are two 3/8" bolts that secure the lid to the cabinet. Good luck...

My maytag washer stoped during the cycle with 8


You may have blown the internal fuse located in the lid switch. Could be you over loaded the washer and blew the fuse.
Unplug the washer and remove the four screws holding the control panel front in place. Two screws on top and two screws under control panel.
Remove the control panel and tilt forward.
Locate the lid switch assemble and remove glass fuse and inspect.
Door switch assembly should be replaced. When you order the proper fuse it should come with the door switch assembly.
Replace assembly. Reinstall the front control panel and four screws.
Plug machine in and test.

How do I take the front cover off a Maytag MAV4755AWW washer to change the belt for spinning the drum?


Although I'm not familiar with that particular model, most Maytag washers have the belts under the washer (no need to remove the front panel) --- just tip the washer back and check to see if the belts are underneath.
