How to remove the front panel of a maytag neptune gas dryer

Removal of the front panel requires the removal of the top cover and the console. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the 2 screws attaching the top cover to the rear of the dryer then slide it rearward to clear the screw head from the top cover flange and lift the cover off the dryer cabinet.

Remove the screws securing the heater PCB board and disconnect the black and white wiring harness connectors from the board.

Remove the four screws attaching the console to the washer cabinet and rotate the console down to remove it from the dryer.

Remove the four screws attaching the top of the front panel to the cabinet and the two screws at the bottom of the door opening.

Pull the front panel forward and disconnect the interior light wiring harness then lift the front panel off the tabs across the bottom and move it away from the dryer.

Reinstall the front panel, the console, and the top cover in reverse of the removal steps.

Take off the 4 phillips head screws around the door. the 2 sides will fold out, pull and the bottom panel will follow. after you have removed the panel you will have access to the frame. you will need to remove the top 2 5/16th screws. you will then lift the top panel and have a access to the top of the drum.

Maytag neptune MPG5500AWW loose baffles but can't figure out how to lift top or front

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

Can't figure out how to get the top off This one looks like a real puzzle. Open the door and look for screws holding the front on, the top seems to lift up once something is released.
