SOURCE: Model MDE5500AYW Maytag Neptune Dryer showing code 8.8 and won's start

Look at this link... it worked for me!!! Basically,
1) Use a heating pad and warm the display.
2) Open the dryer door as well to let the warm air in.

It took about 15 min for me and saved me a over $100 in repair costs.

SOURCE: How do I remove the lint housing of Maytag Neptune dryer

Hi Kate,

Gaining access to the lint housing sounds more difficult than it is. As a matter of fact, I could get to it and have it back together in the time it takes me to type out the instructions!

Tools needed;
1.) Phillips screwdriver
2.) 5/16" nut driver or socket

UNPLUG THE DRYER FIRST!!! Or risk a funky new hair-do...

Open the door and remove the four screws at the hinges then remove the door. Opposite the hinges, you'll see 4 more screws, remove these too. Now grasp the front panel on both sides near the top and pull it toward you. Lean it out to about a 45 degree angle and lift it off the clips that are holding it (at the bottom).
Now you'll see the lint trap housing. Look around the housing, you'll probably see a yellow wire near the 5 o'clock position, remove it. Now, on either side, you'll see four 5/16" screws... Don't remove the top ones, just remove the three below the top ones. You can now pull the entire panel off of the frame for cleaning.
Rebuild in the reverse order (and don't forget to re-connect that yellow wire!)

There ya go! Please don't forget to rate this as "FixYa", OK

SOURCE: Maytag MDE5500AYW 220V Electric Dryer. Makes a

Your dryers uses rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. Idler pulley your dryer has a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it. Rear drum bearing. There are videos of the testing and replacing of these parts at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the troubleshooting and replacement of these parts Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. This brings us to the last problem could be the blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time.To check this grab the wheel and see if theres any play . But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you need to replace it. If you need diagrams or illustrations of your specific model you can also enter your model # there.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MDE5500AYW panel lights work but not dryer

inside the control panel is a tech sheet that has some diagnostics on it . there is a membrane button test or something to that effect. I suspect that the start/pause button is the problem and you would need to replace the console w/touchpad.about $130-140 new. there are some used ones on ebay.

MDE5500AYW Maytag Neptune not heating. Heating Element, both high limit thermostats and thermal fuse have been replaced. What could be the problem?


Firstly, you have not mentioned that you have verified the presence of a power source of 240 volts, so make certain of that issue. If you have proper voltage, then the motor centrifugal switch could be at fault
Below is a link for trouble shooting your model.

Where is the heater relay located. The part is accurate but I cannot find to replace


The circuitry does not have a relay, so to speak. The wiring goes from control,panel to 1 side of element and through a centrifugal switch built in to the motor. The only relay would be on a circuit board if it's an electronic model, You would need to replace the board if it's defective.

Hello, my dryer MDE5500AYW won't dry on a cool temperature. It is an electric dryer


You buy no parts

You diagnose the problem
to find something wrong

How about looking in the owners manual
& follow the trouble chart

I do not know about Maytag Dryers, but the washers
have a diagnostic manual in a bag under the cabinet,
they don't want you to find,your dryer may also.

My maytag neptune MDE5500AYW will not stop unless it is unplugged


if you have it on time dry and it counts down but won't shut off you most likely have a bad computer board,part number 33003028 and it's around 180 dollars.on older machines it would be a problem with the timer not going to off but you have a computer board in your machine and it takes the place of the timer and other functions,just about everything runs through the computer board.

Can i change which side the driver vent is located?


Hello Laurie. Your dryer allows rear vent, left or right vent. Here is a diagram which shows you all three http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-MDE5500AYW/3048/0151200/M0606011/00002?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

Just pull the dryer out from the wall to access the rear and sides. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!
