Thanks for the photos on how to lift the top off a Maytag Neptune dryer! This save me hours of guess work & a $200+ repair bill to tighten two (2) screws!

Hey Sam, you saved me a bunch of work! My 2-year old daughter stuck her pacifier down the lint trap of my Maytag Neptune dryer, and it was making a heck of racket as it was partially stuck in the fan blades.
I thought it was a problem in the drum because she had climbed in the dryer earlier in the day. I started to take the back apart (because that's the usual access for dryer problems from my past experience), but then I decided to try and google the problem. Your site was the top link. The first page had a picture of exactly how to get inside the box (from the front!), with some clues about the always tricky clips.

Anyway, you saved me at least an hour of wasted time and frustration.

Thx! Keep it up!!

Thanks you so much. The instructions here saved me lot of effort. The screws which hold together the triangular structures in the drum had become loose and the dryer was making lot of noise. There was a real chance that clothes would get stuck in this loose part and get torn.

I searched on Google and came across this site. The instructions here let me open the top cover and tighten the screws for all 3 parts. The dryer is good now. How can I thank you enough...!!

Looks like I had the same problem as anonymous and gupta regarding tightening the screws that hold the vanes in the dryer drum. I was ready to take the back off or something until I read your instructions. Took about 15 min. total. Thanks so much.

Thanks much for the photos showing how to get into the Maytag Neptune dryer. Things are so simple once explained. I know Maytag and repairmen would love to charge us, but information as this should be shared! Thanks for you doing this!

You are a life saver! Thanks for taking the time to post this! A screw came out of the dryer tumbler blade and I was determined that I should take the top of the dryer off. Thanks for saving me time, money and a lot frustration... you are the man!

One of our dryer tumbler blades was hanging on by one screw. Without the information on this website, we would never have been able to access the area to quickly re-tighten the screw. You saved us time and money. Thanks.
