It helps to know how to remove the top of a Maytag dryer if you need to repair yours. With the Maytag dryer top removed you will be able to access most parts within the cabinet. Maytag makes many different models with different methods of removing the top panel. Your model type will determine which method you will need to use.

Things You'll Need
  • Plastic putty knife
  • Screwdriver
  • 10-mm nut driver

Instructions

Maytag Centennial Cabinet Types

  • 1. Unplug the dryer from the wall outlet. If you have a gas dryer, turn off the gas shut-off valve.

  • 2. Insert the blade of a plastic putty knife under the corners of the control panel. Slide the putty knife over the retaining spring to release the control panel. Push the top of the panel back to unhook two catches and locking tabs. Position the control panel out of your way without disconnecting any wires.
