Well irishs, when you buy something used with no written warranty, its like the old Irish saying. "Ya pays ya money and ya takes ya chances." So!! You either bought a defective unit, or you delivered 120 volts to a 230 volt motor and damaged it. Bottom line is, you have no recourse. Don't feel too bad. I have done this myself on several occasions. The good news is that this is a great time to buy appliances. The stores are practically giving this stuff away! Write this off as a lesson learned my friend...

Screaming sound when dryer is on


Hi, W/D here.
Screaming dryers can usually be traced to the drum support roller and the roller shaft. Once the screaming has commenced, both parts usually are damaged beyond reuse. Check this link; it will give you a good idea of what you need, and what to look for. You can scroll over the diagram to view the parts and assembly instructions. A lot of information, if you need it. It will be best to use tha diagrams as a disassembly guide, and confirm that the roller and roller shaft is the issue. Since you're already down to the rollers, it would be wisest to change them both at the same time, if this is the issue.

Maytag neptune electric dryer MDE5500AYQ not getting hot


You should get a diagram of your dryer *(look on the exterior back panel and under the top lid to see if they put a sticker diagram there.

Your heating element can be shorted open so no heat can be made.

You can easily check the element with continuity meter to see if it's broken. Then, check the part number from the Maytag website and price up a replacement. I would also check Ebay if the unti is older and you want to save some money on the part.

Good luck and be careful...always do your continuity checks with unit unplugged.

Compare the wiring connections on both motors. They may be marked. They may be different. Careful examination will determine the start and run wires. Other wires turn on the heat once the motor reaches running speed. The thermal fuse for the motor is internal and unservicable. The hi limit sensor will control the heat, but will not necessarily turn off the motor.
