Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
The problem started few months ago but the dryer restarted itself after several minutes. But now we can't start it anymore and the creen is always showing 8.8.
If you place a heating pad on the panel where the 88 is displayed, it will be usable in a few minutes. Sounds crazy, but it works every time.

After having this problem I believe I found a solution. I think the problem is related to tha ambient temperture of the room where the dryer is located. If it's too cold, you get the 8.8 error. When I first had the error it was at 7:00 in the morning trying to dry some clothes that were in the washing machine overnight. I couldn't get the dryer to work and had to go out for a few hours. When I got back around 11:00, the dryer worked fine. The only difference I could think of was that it was warmer than before. So a few weeks later I rememberd this and tried to test my theory. I waited for a very cold morning and tried the dryer and got the 8.8 error. Then I took a small patio table heater and turned it on in front of the dryer for about 20 minutes. The dryer fired up right away. I've used the same routine whenever I get the 8.8 error and it's always solved the problem for me. Hope this helps
