I just moved and had to replace the cord on my Maytag dryer. It worked yesterday but today the panel lights are dark. Only the light is on when the door is opened. Any ideas?

Did you wire the 4 wires to the 220 properly?

Posted on Feb 15, 2012

Testimonial: "This answer was helpful and led us in the right direction. Though the instruction given and found said the black and red wires could be attached on either side the dryer ran but did not heat. Our next step was to check the wall socket. The outlet tested fine. However we noticed the black and red wires on the outlet were connected the opposite as what we had connected the cord to the dryer. Once we changed sides on the cord connection and then plugged in the dryer everything worked fine and the dryer heated up."

    Thank you for the testimonial. The 220 volts is only meant to regulate the heating element. The 120 will operate the dryer with no heat.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MDE5500AYW panel lights work but not dryer

inside the control panel is a tech sheet that has some diagnostics on it . there is a membrane button test or something to that effect. I suspect that the start/pause button is the problem and you would need to replace the console w/touchpad.about $130-140 new. there are some used ones on ebay.

Why did the control panel go dark on my Maytag side by side refrigerator for a couple of hours?


Ron,
You're right to be concerned but I'd just keep an eye on it for the time being - if it ain't broke, don't fix it!! It's entirely possible that it's throwing a hissy fit after the power outages and it just needs peace and quiet so it can settle down!

May Maytag dyer Performa Model number PYE3300AYW will not start the light in the dryer is off i turned to turn off and on the breaker but nothing happens. My question is that if the light needs to be...


no the light has nothing to do with the dryer not running, sounds like a breaker issue. You will need a multimeter and some screwdrivers. first make sure that the breaker has power, you will need to take the front panel off, then with the meter check for your 220 volts at the breaker(where the wires are hooked up), next check for voltage at the outlet, if all these have power then it is in the dryers cord, you will need to move the dryer out and remove the plate and check for voltage, if it does then you will have to trace it into the dryer. Good Luck Tim

My Maytag dryer model number MDE5500AYW has lights on, but won't switch settings. It is stuck in time dry at 18 minutes. Yesterday it was on sensor dry 47 minutes. Do I need a new control board inside...


OK, your control board and LED are integrated, so you will need to just replace the control board. I would try a hard reset before replacing the board. Pull the plug or, shut down the appropriate breaker switch for 5 minutes. Re apply power after the 5 minutes are up. if you continue to experience this fault, replace the control board asap.

Dryer will not work, has electrical power, but does not light up


look for a fuse mounted beside the heater element. small black with 2 white wires attached, open and the dryer don work, but wait thers more... look into the blower assembly for blockage of lint or loose blower.
