Q:

How do I get the front cover off? Model mdg4000bww MDG4000BWW Maytag Dryer

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. I regret to hear that you are having issues with your dryer and do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number mdg4000bww and you will need remove the front part of the dryer. With the door open you will need to pry the lid up and it will open up and lean to the back like the hood on a car. Once the top is open and standing facing the machine there is a connection that you will need to disconnect. Rght next to the wire is a screw holding the panel that you will remove and another on the opposite side. With the 2 screws removed you need to gently pull up and out of the security hooks each side has. There is a connection to the right of the lower vent that you will need to disconnect. There are 2 screws at the top of the panel that you only need to loosen up enough to get the panel out. The other 4 screws under that will need to be removed completely. 2 screws each side of the duct at the middle bottom. The burner is to the lower left of the cabinet and will need to remove the 2 screws on the rightside of the bracket that hold the burner tube to the duct tube. Once the 2 screws are removed the burner tube which the ignitor is mounted can be replaced. Hope this helps. If you have further questions please let me know. Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

Q:

Maytag Timer 33001730

A:

 Hi,

Thanks for contacting  ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

I would say yes, if the shaft is not threaded where it joins the body of the timer.  If the outer shaft is threaded the timer is the incorrect one for your model. 

 

 

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Thanks Bill! The photo you provided is exact to what is not working, the part they sent me has mounting tabs that can't be used because there is no place to connect them. The 2 screw holes is how it connects to the control panel and the new piece has little nubs where the screw holes should be, do you think they sent me the wrong timer? My dryer is model MDG4000BWW and they sent me timer part # 33001730.

Pete, I stumbled across this post and wanted to offer my two cents on it. I took the model number you gave in your response and it looks like for model MDG4000BWW, there are two different options for the timer based upon your serial number.

The one you received would correspond with a serial number starting with 10, whereas the other timer, part number  33002676 would correspond to a serial number starting with 41. That very well could be the issue here. 

I know that I am responding late on this topic, but if you don't have it resolved yet, I would check your serial number to identify which one you need. However, they are both model specific timers, but there are differences based upon serial number.

Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
