Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
We bought a used maytag neptune electric dryer model #MDE5500AYQ and I needed to install a 3 wire plug
so i did not realizing that the plug on the wall had been wired incorrectly ground and hot where switched so the dryer got 120 olts to ground when i plugged in cord, then it popped the breaker i relized right away what it was and corrected the problem but the dryer does not turn on is there a breaker or fuse inside the dryer to protect against this and if not what are the likley parts that would be damaged when this happened. Im not even sure if the dryer ever worked or not it wasent hooked up when i bought it from the seller
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...
