    Hi Samurai Repair Man

    Love your website. Also, truly appreciate your help in tracking down the noise at start-up and shut-down with our Maytag dryer (due to a faulty blower fan). However, I am having difficulty opening the unit. I have a Maytag Performa gas dryer (model # PYG2000AWW) and cannot find the front panel screws. I have found 2 clasps on the bottom which allows me to open up the front panel part-way by lifting up from the bottom. But this doesn’t seem to be correct as it bends at the top.
    Thank you!
    Best regards from a california dad

    I too have the same dryer – a Maytag Peforma PYG2000AWW – I opened the unit by popping the top – see Samurai’s tip on opening Admiral, Norge, some White Westinghouse, Montgomery Wards.
