The top panel and the control panel need to be removed first before the front panel can be removed. Once the top panel is off, the screws attaching the control panel to the dryer cabinet are exposed. The screws securing the front panel to the dryer cabinet are exposed once the control panel is removed.

Disconnect power and remove the two screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the dryer.

Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers Front Panel and Top...


Most of the internal components of Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers 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 dryer.

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. Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.

The internal components of the dryer 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 Neptune Front-Load Washers. The only difference is the dispenser bezel removal.

Dryer front panel


I just had to do this on my dryer. So without knowing your dryer type, I did the following:
1) pop the top which is held down by two fasteners in the front. I used some plastic pry bars used to remove door panels in cars. Basically you just jam something in the front on both sides under the top lid and force it up.
2) Then with tilt the top back and there is a screw on each side from the inside that holds on the front cover.
3) Once these two screws are removed you lift up on the front cover as the other point of attachment is two clips on the bottom that the front cover then lifts out of.

How do I get the top off


The front panel needs to be removed first before the top panel can be lifted. This is due to the top panel hold down brackets hidden behind the front panel posts. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Open the dryer door and remove 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 dryer.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by two 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.

Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer. Reinstall the top cover and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order. Click on the link below for more detailed disassembly procedure.

The top cover is held by two hold down brackets hidden behind the front panel posts. Lifting of the top cover requires the removal of the front panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Open the dryer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening and securing the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

The front panel is held to the cabinet by clips on each side secured to the cabinet front flange. Small slots in each side of the front panel engage the clips and hold the front panel in place. Grasp the sides of the front panel near the top cover then pull the front panel away from the cabinet.

Tilt the top of the front panel away from the cabinet and lift it up to release it from the two clips retaining its bottom to the base of the dryer, and then move the panel away.

Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screw attaching each hold down bracket to the cabinet. Swing each bracket to the outside then unhook it from the slot in the lip of the top cover. Lift the front of the top cover and flip it to the rear of the dryer.

Reassemble the front panel and the top cover by reversing the given disassembly steps.

Maytag mce8000 ayw. Want to remove plastic cover


The font panel must be removed. This may be done by removing the control console (open upper cabinet doors to find screws behind the console). After you remove the control console, the screws along the top of the lower front panel are easily accessible. Disconnect the two interlock switches, remove the grounding clip attached to the bulkhead & lift the panel off the two lower clips. Inside the panel is the housing that leads to the exhaust blower. Just clean out the mess & reverse the process to replace the parts.

Gas Dryer LDG7304AAE making horribly loud noise while drying


Solution for the Maytag model is most likely to replace the blower wheel. Remove the two screws on the front panel (just a couple inches off the floor) and swing the front panel up to allow you to unhook the top side of the panel from the clips at the very top of the front panel. You do not have to remove the wires, just set the front panel to the side. Blower wheel is at the lower left. The old wheel most likely no longer has a D shaped hole to match the motor shaft, and spins freely. Remove cover. Replace the wheel part number Y303836 for a LDG7304AAE which is held on the shaft with a spring type clamp. Reassemble. Not really very hard to do. On a difficulty scale or 1 - 10, I'd rate it a 3.
