Dryer continues to run when I open the dryer door.


The door lock is more than just a latch; it is an electrical interlock. From your description it is likely that the interlock has failed

My Dryer won't stop drying until I open the door.


If it does this in a Timed Dry setting the timer is bad. If it does this in an Auto dry setting it could be a bad moisture sensor or a bad timer.

Dryer stopped working, sounds like timer still running


I suspect it is the thermal fuse. Seen here. You will need to determine what caused it to blow. on these machines the blower wheel is notorious for getting loose and causing the element to over heat. This makes the heating element shut down faster and takes a long time to dry the clothes. 7fc125e.jpg

Maytag Neptune MDG 5500 AWQ heats sporatically


your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.

Timer runs continuously - Does not stop at all


There should be a timer motor on the timer. That is most likely burnt out and will cause the timer to not shut down. Just replace the timer and that will solve the problem

Whirlpool Dryer won't start


You probably had been using the dryer alot today. As long as the motor was running there was enough air flow over the motor to keep it just cool enough to allow it to continue to run. When you stopped the dryer the heat tripped the thermal protector in the motor. Let it sit an hour or so and it should restart. The motor is probably coated in dryer lint, and / or the motor bearings are getting bad. If you space your drying loads out a bit you can get by for a long time without having to do anything.
