    I have the same problem. Bought mine about 5 years ago as well. The lights on the control panel blink and it beeps 3 times. Did what you suggested and it did not work.

    I think I just had the same problem. I pressed the start button, the drum rotated briefly, and then the dryer froze up. The display reads 88 and none of the buttons have any effect. I tried unplugging and plugging back in but no change. Is this suggesting a motor failed?

    My Maytag Neptune dryer ( 3.5 yrs old) was working with no problems until the Start button would not operate. All other functions and lights were
    working fine. I hoped it was just a fuse replacement..I just had a repairman here today and the whole control board will need to be replaced at the cost of $200 plus the labor call fee of $ 160!!
    He suggested that I should just buy a new one for that price. I have the Neptune washer also and the repairman says those go more often than the dryers.

    My machine continued to run all night overnight, and the next AM I shut the machine off and unplugged it. When I got home I plugged it back in and had nothing on the digital control panel. I have tried the sensor dry and damp dry buttons and it goes into advertising mode. I try it again and it does nothing. My machine is also 5 years old. Any other ideas on how to correct this problem. - Frustrated mom of 4 very active and messy kids!

    All of the lights are on but nothing is starting the dryer. Multiple "reboots" at the power box to no avail. I remember how excited I was when my new Neptune pair were delivered. No more of the 3 Maytag appliances I purchased for my in new home on 2005 only one the washer is working. Service man just left will call me with the news. Dryer first call. refridgerator 7th call so far I have lost 5 refridgerators/ freezers full of food. Where did the reliable appliances Maytag used to be known for go??? Overseas?

My moms machine had the same problem.

I took it all apart,

checked all the fuses and thermostats in the machine.

plugged it back in.

pushed the damp dry and sensor keys,

advertising mode went off.

put it all back together.

works great.

.8.8 error message on my neptune electric dryer


sounds like a serial connection problem or glitch in the c.c.u.,first try removing power to the unit for 5 to 10 minutes to clear the memory on the c.c.u.,if this doesn't resolve the issue you may need to replace this board you can power it down by unplugging at the wall or if not easily accessible,then at the power panels breaker or fuse

Maytag Neptune Dryer -5 years old squeeks Now it wont start.


There are four small plastic guide wheels that surround the drum in order to keep it aligned. These will wear after a period of time. The wheels have no bearings, they just ride on a metal shaft. You may either try lubricating the rollers or replacing them. Thank you, Dana

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.

Maytag neptune dryer won't start


Just a quick question before I look at the control board myself. What are the values/ratings for the capacitor and resistor (ex. farads for cap, ohms for resistor, and volts/amps for both)? Or give me the Vender Part Number so I can look this information up. Thanks!
