We moved our neptune dryer to our new cottage and it needed a new hookup. It worked for a while-but now it reads 88 and won't work. Is it the dryer or the electrical?


When the 88 displays, put a heating pad over the display - it will be ready in just a few minutes. Sounds crazy, but it works every time. May take up to 30 or 40 min.

It takes the dryer too long time to dry the laundry even on 80 degrees.


I took my dryer apart and found the vent shoot and exhaust needed cleaning. Also the exhaust vent pipe going out side should be cleande.

There is a technical sheet inside your dryer's cabinet. You can usually find it by accessing the rear of your dryer. All the fault codes should be explained in this paperwork.

Maytag Neptune Dryer is taking over an hour to dry a load


Check the exhaust vent out back of dryer to see if exhaust pipe going outside is crimped or blocked. Let me know if air flow is better if pipe is pulled off back of dryer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Dryer screen shows 8.8. when I go to dry a load of clothes and won't work


We had the same problem - you might try and hit the panel with a blow dryer to heat it up if it's in a cold garage - it may buy you some more time - It took mine 2 yrs to go out completely - when it finally did - I took out the curcuit board and found dark discoloration around the cluster of four resistors - after reading dozens of posts from multiple sites, decided to replace those four resistors and the three main capacitors in the same area just to cover all bases. And for only a few bucks - it works like new again!!! A service call could cost you @$300 - $500 from what other are saying! eek if that's really the case!
