Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I cannot change the different settings in the panel. It just takes me to options and the only way to get out of there is to press back. I can't change the time try, dryness level, or anything. Is there a reset button someplace?

Take the metal panel off the back of the top control area and find the service papers there. The papers will tell you which combination of buttons to push to troubleshoot different problems. Of course, unplug machine first and leave off awhile before opening the unit to prevent electric shock. Hope this helps.

My dryer drum will not turn...."how to change your dryer belt"


There are many styles and different models of dryers but the one thing they all have in common is the dryer has a belt that turns the drum.In the procedure below we will show you how to take apart your dryer,change your belt,and show you the correct threading of your belt. Here is a typical Kenmore dryer idler pulley(it has a plastic wheel on it) motor/pulley (the pulley is attached to the backside of the motor) and the belt configuration.Note the picture below.

Each different model dryer also has a different lint trap location. This location will have a bearing on how your dryer is taken apart and how to change your belt.

Note the location of your lint trap and choose the correct video on how to take your dryer apart. There are two different locations,on top,and in the door.

Error code LOC ?


LOC means that the control lock has been engaged. (This feature also keeps a child from changing any setting when a load is in progress or starting the dryer with the cat in the unit.) On at least one Frigidaire dryer, press and hold the Options and Select touch pads for at least 10 seconds (until the display changes) to toggle the lock on and off.

Usually, the two keys to press for the Control Lock will have a line between them with a padlock symbol in the middle of the line. (This symbol will be in a very small font.) This may help you find the keys to press if other models of Frigidaire dryers use a different combination of touch pads.

I hope this helps.

We have a whirlpool duet gas front loader dryer and one morning the front panel says control lock?? What's solution for that??


The Control Lock is a child lock option. This prevents the dryer being started or the cycle being changed when it shouldn't. To toggle this off, you need to press and hold the Control Lock button on the WGD9550WL for 3 or more seconds. Other dryers use pressing and holding Cancel or two separate buttons for the feature. The appropriate button or set of buttons will usually have a Hold for 3 seconds label below or on the key in a small font.

The manual will also have the information on toggling the control lock on and off. Most Whirlpool manuals are available here: https://www.whirlpool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchView?catalogId=10561&langId=-1&storeId=10211&krypto=5QgxQhneFliXuEuX564wSQ%3D%3D&ddkey=http:OCManualsLiteratureSearchView . Put your model number in the search box and press the right arrow. For dryers the model number is inside the door on the rim of the dryer. If you add a comment with your Whirlpool model number, I will be glad to check if there a different Control Lock option for that Duet model.

I hope this helps.

How do you shut off the annoying Bosch Nexxt 500 Dryer wrinkle guard?


Click HERE to get the Users Manual for your machine, from what I can see, it's in the selection option of the machine.
From the manual:
Select the option to be changed with the "Menu" button. Press the button to move to the next option on the display. The active symbol starts flashing.
The current active option setting is displayed on the right. These settings can now be changed with the "Select" button. Press the button to jump to the next possible setting. Pressing the "Menu" button again saves the setting. If you don't press any buttons for 10 seconds the settings are saved automatically.
Hope this answers your question. Please rate and comment. Thank You

Asko Dryer t760 program menu won't change or is frozen The program menu is stuck on one setting, and the P1, P2, P3, P4 buttons don't change the program. When I try to reset the program (by pressing...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

By stating "the dryer does work" indicates it is likely an issue with programming.

What are the chances you have the menu lock-out option turned "on"...also referred to as "child lock".

You may quickly rule this out or confirm it is the problem indeed, by trying this.

CHILD-SAFE START

1. Turn the machine off then on.
2. Press ENTER five times, then press P3 five
times. (This must be done within 15 seconds.)
3. “Delayed start” displays with “0” flashing in the
lower right corner. Press the Right Arrow button
to toggle the display to “3.”


**NOTE: Child-Safe Menu Button**
Please note that when you set the child-safe Start
button, the Menu button is automatically
programmed to delay for three seconds before it
becomes active. This prevents a child from
accidentally changing the program settings.
When you want to change a program, press the Menu
button for three seconds to activate the menus. The
Menu button will work normally (without the
three-second delay) until you have completed your
changes. If it is not pressed for two minutes, it will
automatically revert back to the child-safe mode.

Let me know if this indeed solves the problem but either way please keep me posted.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Touch screen


As a thought you may want to re-initiate the electronics. Don't know if this can help but it might:

It's called "Field Service Mode"
1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.
This takes you through a processes of initializing the touch screen. I have a different problem on my Harmony dryer but I've used this to check diagnositcs.

Regards,

Robert...
