The beater bar in my Neptune dryer modeL # MED5500AYW has come off and needs to be replaced.


It sounds like you are referring to the drum baffles when you say "beater bar". If that is so, you need to remove the front panel then raise the top cover to access the baffles mounting screws outside the drum. Below is the link to the procedure I posted previously.

My Maytag dryer has a loose dryer drum baffle. How to i get to it inorder to tighten the screws? Do I remove the top


unplug Dryer, open door, Remove two door hinge screws going into front panel, remove two screws on opposite side. Grab front panel on upper sides and twist and pull front panel out. Panel sits on two clips at bottom so you have to tip panel out to unhook from the bottom. You will see a metal hook with two screws in it that holds down the top of the dryer on each side. Remove the screws and hook bracket. Make sure you note how it reinstalls. Top will now lift up and lean back against a wall. It is hinged in back. You can now easily get to the drum baffle screws. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

BAFFLE INSIDE THE DRUM IS LOOSE. HOW DO I TAKE FRONT OF CABINET OFF SO THAT I CAN GET TO OUTSIDE OF DRUM TO TIGHTEN SCREWS HOLDING BAFFLE?


Open the front door where you load the machine.
Look towards the top where the door normaly closes, there ususualy two screws that you can unscrew there.
Once loose the top pannel should come off, which allowes you to remove the front panel with 2 screws as well.

Good luck!

Baffle loose (Can see hole when moving baffle)


Hi there :)

The baffles are held in by 2 quarter inch screws per baffle. The only way to get to them is by taking off the top lid of the dryer.

Good luck.

Baffles are loose on my dyer maytag neptune mde5500


Hi Nick, welcome to FixYa!

1. Open the door and remove the two screws that secure each of the door hinges to the dryer frame. With the door open so you can take a hold of it, simply pull the whole door out of the notches that the hinges fit into.
Next, remove the two screws on the opposite side of the frame where the door closes to. (along with the two white plastic trim pieces the screws go thru) Once the door is off and the screws are out, pull the entire front panel forward and then it will lift off the tabs at the bottom and you can set it aside.
next, look up near the top of the cabinet, on each side, for the metal hooks that secure the top to the cabinet. Remove the screw (5/16" nut driver) that secures each hook to the cabinet. Take the hook off, repeat for the other side.
Now you can lift up the top of the machine, and rotate the drum so that the loose baffle is at the top so you can work on the baffle easily. Rotate the drum to the next baffle, etc.

I hope you find this answer helpful.
