Your problem is most likely an issue with the start button. if it is stuck, the dryer will keep running even though it has passed the off position. your start switch probably needs replaced. Joe

Maytag neptune dryer model mde3000ayw wont start


If it only runs with start button held in then you have a problem with the door switch. Check to be sure the wires are on it. Here is the switch to order in case it is bad.

Maytag Neptune dryer timer won't stop


If the timer is not stopping as it goes around then it's for sure the timer. The timer does pretty much all the work with controlling the dryer. And if it's physically not stopping going around then it has broken.

The neptune dryer timer doesnt work at all, it dryer fine just the timer button never moves and doesnt shut off.


Hi gordydugg...

Replace your timer it is defective and non repairable...
When you go to replace with your new timer, I would recommend that you remove and replace one wire at a time.

Maytag Neptune MDE3000AYW. The start button on my dryer went out. It tried to start and then died and smelled burnt. I am guessing the switch burned up. Any thoughts on how to fix it? Thanks

My Maytag Neptune Dryer (MDE4000) won't stop. The timer advances right past the "Off" position and keeps on going around and around until we open the door to stop it. The dryer gets very hot.
