Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
My Maytag Neptune Dryer won't start. The timer screen says 8.8. I have tried unplugging it and pressing off and on and all of the buttons. It won't work. I have looked in the manual and done everything it says. The dryer is 5 years old. But the washing machine works fine. This has happened before but it started working again. What whould i do?
Hey all neptune stricken owners - I removed the circuit board which was darkened substantially in the resistor area, but the maytag repairman got no money this time!! . . . And the cold is no longer the problem it has been for the past couple of years. We replaced the 3 main capacitors(blue) and the cluster of four resistors(brown) - and voila - the dryer works like new!!! It only cost a few bucks ($.67, $.92 etc etc) as opposed to the $151 a new board was going to cost!

Just a quick question before I look at the control board myself. What are the values/ratings for the capacitor and resistor (ex. farads for cap, ohms for resistor, and volts/amps for both)? Or give me the Vender Part Number so I can look this information up. Thanks!

This also happened to our dryer recently(our dryer is 6 yrs old). My husband replaced one of the capacitors along with a resistor(I think that's what it's called). If you don't know what you are doing then you can purchase on new board on ebay. My husband checked on there and they run about $90.

I have had the same problem over the past several months. Typically it would clear itself out (clear 8.8. on display) after several minutes. Today it reoccurred but this time it would not clear. I knew it was a problem with the control board. So I removed the control board and discovered that the capacitor for the 5VDC power had ?popped?. I replaced the capacitor and every thing worked! Hope this helps.
