Control panel not lighting up

Maytag Neptune Electric Dryer - Model # mce8000ayw
I'm not getting power to the control panel...I checked to make sure that it's getting 110 on both sides of the outlet. I do get lights in the upper cabinet but that's all I'm getting. Is there possibly a fuse or reset switch anywhere on the dryer? I checked all through the owner's manual and couldn't find this problem listed under troubleshooting. I appreciate any input.
Thank you! Rick Kuelker

    I tried unplugging it for about 30 mins. and plugging it back in but that didn't do the trick. My wife said she used it Saturday and it worked fine. We a little bit of water in the basement Saturday night from a heavy rain from but I don't think enough to be a problem. I'll leave the dryer uplugged until I get home from work this evening and try again.
    Thank you! Rick Kuelker

Hey, there should be a fuse, 20amps possibly, in the back, there may be a metal cover with a screw ontop to keep it closed. Look in the back I have seen a few pictures, but im perfectly sure where it is in your model.

Why does my Neptune moder number mce8000ayw dryer not tumble?


If the motor runs, but the drum doesn't rotate, check the belt, part # 341241. It's probably broken and off of the drum.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
