Tip & How-To about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer

My maytag neptune dryer would not warm up

My 2 yr old Maytag dryer took forever to heat up. called the repairman and I found out that when the company I bought the dryer from installed it they kinked the duct hose. Solenoid was replaced but burnt out since the duct when obtructed. You might want to pull the dryer out and check the hose.

My 4 yr. old Maytag electric dryer stopped in the middle of drying towels and wouldn't restart. I called one repairman who told me it was my motor and I called another repairman closer to where I live and he came out and replaced my fuse. My dryer works fine now.

My Neptune dryer has stopped heating. Is there


Dryers are very simple. You probably just need a new heater element. Usually just remove the back panel, remove the element, take it to a appliance parts store, get a new one and install it. They don't cost very much maybe $20 or so...

maytag dryer performing inconsistantly


you either need a new heating element or you are not getting full 240 volts, im assuming its electric here. check your outlet to make sure both leads are hot.

Where can I buy the dryer belt?


I bought my dryer belt dirrectly from Danby. They first gave me the name of a company to get it from, when I called them, I was told they no longer handled Danby. So I called Danby back, the woman I talked with was very helpful. She ordered the belt and sent instructions on how to change the belt out myself, and said if I had any problems with the installation, give them a call. It took me about two and a half hourse to replace the belt. But if I had to do it again I think I could do it in 30 to 45 min. By the way I'm a 60yr old woman.
