Depends on the model. The easiest one's you will be able to insert a small flat head screw driver between the front and the top panel and push on the green clips (a flashlight makes a world of difference here). With this style you just need to install a screw back in the loose fin that keeps it tight. The slightly more difficult style, you have to remove the 2 phillips screws from the door hinges and the 2 screws straight across from them. This will let you get your front panel off (remove by twisting the tops of the panel slightly and pulling) There will be 2 5/16" screws to remove that hold the top down. Same procedure, install screw in the fins to keep them tight. How do I tell which style I have you ask? Simple. If the front panel goes all of the way across at the top, it's the first solution. If the front panel goes about 2 " then the door, then another 2", it's the later plan.Message me back if you are still having trouble.

Fin that tumbles clothing inside dryer coming loose, how can I tighten it?


These fins are usually screwed on from the outside of the drum. If you're up to it this is a simple but time consuming fix. Take the cabinet off the front of the dryer, the top will come off as well. be careful of the wires from the control console, they will stay attached to the dryer. Tighten the tumbler fins on the drum and then re-assemble the cabinet. Typically the screws you need to access are the same used for the door latch and hinges. They go back together easy ........

Fins inside drumare loose


Open the top ... held down with spring clips ... remove the front panel ... probably 2 to 4 screws ... be careful of the wires ... unplug the machine of course. Remove the drum ... but first observe the belt arrangement so you can reinstall. Tighten the 'fins'. Reverse the procedure.

You can use a pry or large screw driver to pop the top. Be careful of the finish.

Loose vane/fin on the Maytag LDE8406ACE


On almost all dryers the top will release by itself without requiring you to remove the front. There are two small clamp-like mechanisms under the top on the front side. They can be released easily by sticking a flat-tip screwdriver straight into them and pushing in. Once you open the top you can spin the drum by hand and tighten the screws on the fins. Take not however that some fins are only placed in by plastic snaps, and if it is loose it probably means that it is broken and will require repairs.

I have an LD9334 Dryer with a noise when the drum turns. One of the fins inside has a loose screw and is hitting the top as it goes around. Does the top of the dryer come up or do I have to fix from the...


I fixed mine it by opnening up the gray vent panel in the lower right corner on the rear of the dryer. By spinning the drum, I was able to loom inside with a flashlight and see the loose screws holding the loose baffle in place. I was then able to tighten it.

FIn inside neptune md55 dryer came loose need to remove side pane


I had the same problem but it's the FRONT Panel you need to remove. Before you start, unplug the thing first. BTW I did the whole proceedure in 10 minutes using an electric screwdiver / philips bit and a socket set with an 8mm socket with my leg in a cast. You can do better, I'm confident!

Two 8mm hex head bolts hold each fin on the drum. They can be tightened. You need to open the dryer front since they bolt from the outside of the drum. To open the dryer front you first take the door off by removing the two philips head screws, then slightly lift the door and pull toward you (the door hinges have little hooks on the end that inserts into the slots (this little design keeps the door from falling off during removal and install-nice). Then remove the two philips screws on the other side of the door opening (opposite the door hinges). These screws hold two plastic brackets (be sure to see how they are aligned before you remove them so you know how they go back on.

Now the front frame panel looks like an "H" . Grab the top two arms of the 'H" and give a quick ****. The top arms of the 'H" will come loose. The bottom part is held by a couple of clips, just pull up and the front panel comes off.

You will be able to spin the drum until the hex bolts for the fin(s) in question are visable / reachable from the right side (just above the heater unit-hope you unplugged the dryer earlier). I tightened it using an 8 mm socket.

Now reverse your steps: put the front panel back on the bottom clips and snap the top "H" arms back in place. Reinstall the plastic clips / screws and then put the door back on.

DRYER FIN IN DRUM IS COMING LOOSE


Unplug the dryer, remove the door hinge screws that go into the cabinet and the two screws on the opposite side of the door opening, then the front panel can be removedby starting at the top. Once the front is off, there are two screws, one to each side that hold the top on, remove these and raise the top. You can rotate the drum by hand and the baffles are held on by the screws on the outside of the drum. Reassemble in reverse order.
