Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
I have a neptune gas dryer and it started to not dry very well and i noticed the timer was at like 40 min on sensor. I found a way around this by unplugung it and then pluging it back up and it would go to 60 min and after about ten drying cycles it would need to be reset again. I decided to repair this so i bought a new control board and installed it. the fires cycle was at 62 min and from there on it has gone down to 48 min. and when i unplug it it stays at 48 min. The dealer i bought the board from did not have the newest number as the part number has beed changed and he still had the old part number and thought it would be ok. I did check the Maytag website and my number is still a good number 33002959 is the part number for the board bought. Would there be another reason for this? I looked at the sensor inside the dryes with the two wires on it and did not see anything wrong with it. I think mine is a mdg5500aw can look for sure but pretty sure. Thanks for any help you may provide. Jack
Jack, the difference between the new and older board is that they added a capacitor on the new board to allow the removal of the capacitor on the radiant sensor. Sometimes a build-up of fabric softner on the sensor bars prevents detection of moisture on the clothes. I usually use a light sandpaper and go over the bars lightly. Give this a shot...Catriver...post back.
