THE FRONT OF THE DRYER IS REMOVED BY OPENING THE DOOR AND REMOVING THE TWO SCREWS HOLDING THE HINGES TO THE FRONT PANEL. ALSO, REMOVE THE TWO SCREWS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE OPENING. PULL THE FRONT PANEL TOWARD YOU AT THE TOP. IT WILL BE HINGED AT THE BOTTOM. ONCE YOU HAVE IT TILTED TOWARD YOU, PICK IT UP OFF THE BOTTOM HINGES.
THERE ARE TWO RETAINING CLIPS HOLDING THE TOP DOWN AT THE FRONT CORNERS. THESE CLIPS ARE HELD ON BY A 5/16TH HEX HEAD SCREW. REMOVE THE SCREW AND CLIP AND YOU CAN LIFT THE TOP. IT IS HINGED AT THE BACK AND YOU CAN RAISE IT UP AND BACK OUT OF THE WAY. YOUY NOW HAVE ACCESS TO THE OUTER SIDE OF THE DRUM. ROTATE EACH OF THE BAFFLES TO THE TOP AND TIGHTEN EACH SCREW AS THEY COME TO THE TOP.

I have a maytag neptune dryer and the drum is loose how do i tighten it?


Why do you say that the drum is loose? Are you able to wobble it by hand? If so, that is evidence of a bad roller that the drum sits on.

If the drum doesn't turn as fast as it did, that is probably a loose belt, which would indicate that the belt tensioner is not working or belt has jumped the tensioner.

Yes - right where the front panel meets the top panel of the dryer on both sides there are two clips. Insert a screwdriver into the clips and push up on top panel. You'll see the screws that hold the fins on the dryer. Tighten these screws or replace. Good luck...

Loose fins


Hi, Unplug the dryer. Remove the screws on each side of the door opening. The front will pull toward you and lift off the clips at the bottom. You have the option to take the door off or leave it hang there. With the front off, you should be able to reach in and tighten the screws that hold the [addles in place. Just turn the drun by hand to get to the next paddle. You will need a 5/16" or 1/4" nut driver/socket.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Press a putty knife in at the top front corners. That will release the spring catches.
