    The lights on the control panel come on when the door is opened. When you close the door none of the buttons will do anything. I have tried shutting off the power to the dryer and then turning it back on, but did not accomplish anything.

This brings us to the last problem could be the blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time.To check this grab the wheel and see if theres any play .

MDE5500AYW Maytag Neptune not heating. Heating Element, both high limit thermostats and thermal fuse have been replaced. What could be the problem?


Firstly, you have not mentioned that you have verified the presence of a power source of 240 volts, so make certain of that issue. If you have proper voltage, then the motor centrifugal switch could be at fault
Below is a link for trouble shooting your model.

The lights on the dryer work it wont start it didnt have any problems drying before this happened no odors or smells i have a maytag MDE5500AYW. please help. thank u


If the display on the dryer reads '88' then place a heating pad over the display. After a few minutes, the '88' code will clear, and it will work fine. Sounds crazy, but works every time for me.
