Maytag Dryer Not Tumbling - Can't find the access door!

Hello all,

My maytag dryer, model # HYE3658AYW, is not tumbling. I can hear the motor run, but no tumble. I think it's a broken belt, since the dryer is still producing heat. Trouble is, I can't figure out how to get to the motor, is there a way to take off the back? I can't find any screws? Help please!

you'll need a putty knife prefferably but a butter knife or a long thin straight blade screwdriver will work as well.
From the front look where the top of the dryer meets the front, there is a small crack. You need to push in on the spring clips in there. If you can see them great push in on them while pulling up on the dryer top. Once the top flips up you just screw the front off the dryer and away you go. Yours may be the style where you need to open the door and start taking out screws from there. It's not a big deal just start taking off screws from the front and panels and there she be ( The guts of your dryer )

There are several types of Maytag dryer out there. one is like other post other is look at front panel toward bottom in fold there might be 2 screws there. Take these out and panel will swing out to take off.
