SOURCE: I have a Maytag Neptune

This is your complaint;
"I have a Maytag Neptune MDE4000AYW Dryer. The internal light is on but the control panel will not start the dryer. The breaker did not trip, i have full electricity to the dryer. My settings work but will not preform when i press the start button. Is this an internal electrical problem? Can i fix this myself?"

Thank you for providing a valid make and model number!

Tip: A volt-ohm meter is a valuable tool for diagnosing problems.

My Solution:
!. Sometimes a breaker will only trip 1 side of the 2 sided breaker. Reset the breaker by flipping it off then back on to remove any doubt!
Note: This is not 100% positive, as a breaker can fail on 1/2 the sides, so you will need a meter to test voltage, if you have ruled all else out.

2. Sometimes a thermal fuse in the dryer will open due to a venting issue. The fuse is mounted on the blower housing
or on the element tube. See links for part diagram: http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=516650&PPStack=1

http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=1660&PPStack=1

See this link for diassembly procedures:
http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_18.asp

Inspect your vent thouroughly for obstructions. Also, inspect your lint filter if you use fabric sheets, by holding the filter flat under running water. If the water beads up and does not strain through the filter screen, replace the filter and avoid using fabric sheets.

3. The door switch may have failed, see link for part diagram.
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46718, See item no.6.

4.Wiring: The wiring at the dryer terminal block may have burned up. See link for diagram:
http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=516193&PPStack=1


5. Push to start switch failure. See link below:

SOURCE: My LG gas dryer Model#DLG2102W is not heating up.

Its most likely in your ignitor or valve and flame sensor. You can test the ignitor to see if it glows and sends amp signal to valves to open them.

To see the diagram and parts follow this link. Parts are # M110, M160, M240. Also check M220 to see if its still good.

Replaced starter button and it worked for awhile. Now it doesn't. If I keep it pressed, dryer runs. If I release, it stops. wedged screwdriver beneath button and that works


The bad news is your switch spring isn't working or is broken. The good news is that you already know how to replace the switch.

Only a few buttons on my key panel work, example the start/ clear button does not work, a few numbers do work. I think its from condensation. How can I dry this out? Can I use a hair dryer?


Yes you can use a hair dryer but the power should be off so that you don't short it out any more than it already is. Most likely the keypad has been ruined and will need replaced., Once these go bad there is no fix except to replace the keypad.
