Tip & How-To about Dryers

Maytag Neptune Dryer Lights up (8.8)

Last week i had my Neptune dryer come up with this 8.8 error code and wouldn't start. so i called the Maytag people and they claimed there is no such error code so they sent out a tech (free of charge ) :) and he tested it and found nothing wrong and i had remembered that last week it was working fine when it was warm outside but now that it is cold below 40 deg. it does not want to work so i thought that this has something to do with the the dryer sitting in the room outside where it is cooler that it is inside so i got a heating pad and i placed it under the sensor that sits on the bottom of the dryer to see what would happen but no avail
so then i moved the heating pad to the control panel area on the back and turned on the heating pad for 20 minutes on high and came back and tried the drier and wow it now works so called the Maytag people back and they sent out a rep and i showed this to them and they were amazed on how this worked they are currently working to solve this issue
Hope this tip will help
Best regards Mike

Extremely loud noise during spin cycle of my Neptune dryer--just started happening in the last month. The dryer is probably 7-8 years old, so it's not the newer Neptune model.

Maytag Neptune gas dryer beeps.


NO RESETS OTHER THAN TO UNPLUG THE DRYER FOR 5 MINUTES, THEN RECONNECT POWER. ON ANY ELECTRONIC CONTROL, THIS WILL RESET THE CONTROL'S MICROCOMPUTER. IF THAT DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM, THE TOUCH SWITCH MAY BE FAULTY.

My dyrer just stopped working one day. I've had the heating element checked, both boards and my electrical outlet checked but my dryer still doesn't work. All I get is a troubleshooting code that looks like an upside down F with a 5 behind it. If you have a solution to this problem please let me know Thank You.
