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.

Drier noise

Lifting the top should be pretty simple. There is an obvious lip that runs all the way around the dryer where the top hinges down and fits on the other body panels. Look between the lid & the front panel on the front of the dryer. A few inches from either front corner there is a metal clip that interlocks with the front panel (If the lip is squeezed together to tightly to see between, just get a putty knife or another thin-yet-sturdy object & work it between the two pieces until you barely see between them.). Once you locate the two clips, get two thin knives or putty tools & push inward from the front on both of the clips. When you have the clips fully disengaged you should be able to lift the lid by prying upwards very gently. Sometimes it takes a little wiggling to get them disengaged, so do not forcefully pry as this can bend the pieces, causing a poor fit or cosmetic damage.
It will be much easier to locate the noise if you take the front panel off as well. From the top your view is obstructed almost completely by the tub. There are normally only 2 or 4 screws near the top on the inside connecting the front panel. Just remove those screws & lift up on the front. Everything should be much easier to inspect. While you are in there, vacuum all the lint out (there's usually lots). Doing so will help airflow & lower the chances of an accidental fire.
I hope this helps you out. I have a similar model & it did not take me very long to figure it out. Hopefully you'll have the same luck!
