Maytag Neptune MDE5500AYW Dryer wont start

The lights are lit but none of them do anything. If I hold air fluff it does an LED light show thing. I have had this problem before and was told to hold a couple buttons down and i think put it to service mode or something and it worked but I dont remember what it was... Please help I need clean clothes >< It seems to do this after a power failure while its running and it beeps everyonce in a while. i dont have money for a repairman and really need a quick fix for right now. Thank you for any help you can give me

This dryer has 2 fuses, one behind the filter housing under a shield and another on the heater element. To get to them you first have to remove the door and then that will allow for the goalpost shaped front to come off. Then you can remove the hooks and lift the top. Then the front glide panel can be removed then the drum and then you can access and clean the innards.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Dryer humming but not running

This sounds like the motor is siezed or burned out. I wish I knew how much a motor is, but the Neptune is a good dryer so it would probably be worth it to get a new motor if indeed that's the problem.

pf means power failure. your dryer uses an extra boost of power on start-up and your is failing to get this boost you need a repair person in your area

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Dryer making vibrating noise while working

a bearing in the back for your drum sounds like what you describe. It needs to be taken apart and the bearing lubricated with high temp grease

SOURCE: The dryer won't run. Dry, extra dry, and coold down process lights are lit.

Hi, the lights are signaling a control fault the is concerning the logic sector of the control board/timer. you will need to make sure that the wiring harness is connected to all points and it should be in good condition. if there are no apparent issue with the wiring harness, replace the control.

Maytag neptune mde5500ayw chirping, buttons wont do anything. was told to replace control board. that did'nt help at all. any ideas?


The blower wheel on these tends to wallow out. That makes the dryer overheat and take twice as long to dry the clothes. Lint begins to build up in the filter housing. Finally the temp exceeds 350 and the round white fuse on the blower housing melts. Boom you has got a dead dryer. To get into the slopefront type dryer seems a bit intimidating bit really is not. Remove the door. The door is reverseable so 2 more screws opposide need to also be removed. Then the goalpost shaped front pops off. Then that reveals the top hold down straps. Remove them and top can be popped. Next you remove the front shroud the drum rides on. then get the drum out. Did I mention you do not work from the back at all on this model? Do not try to fix it in the wash room. Take it ouitside and put it on the picnic table or a tailgate to repair it. You will need a phillips head screwdrivers pliers 1/4 and 5/16 nutdriver and snapring pliers.
Shopvac to clean it up and probbaly a new fuse and blower wheel.

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.

Maytag neptune dryer will not start


Ok here is what I would do. The first thing I want to do is check the door switch. If that switch is broken the dryer won't go BUT the lights would all be on and the duct fuse intact. If that turned out to be ok, I would remove the ducting60b599d.jpg in the rear and look for excessive lint and fluff in the vent hose and the vent pipe to outside. I would look next at the filter and inside the filter housing for fluff and lint. If I saw something I thought might be causing an air restriction I would then guess the duct fuse was blown. Does that make sense to you? I Would need to unplug the machine and move it to a work bench lift or tailgate. b5d8bb1.jpgIf the top pops i would pop that top Note( if the dryer is a slopehead I would start by removing the door and goalpost front d2679bf.jpgthen pop the top and remove the shroud and drum) I would look2849823.jpg for a loose blower wheel and fluff. I would check the duct fuse

The lights on the dryer work it wont start it didnt have any problems drying before this happened no odors or smells i have a maytag MDE5500AYW. please help. thank u


If the display on the dryer reads '88' then place a heating pad over the display. After a few minutes, the '88' code will clear, and it will work fine. Sounds crazy, but works every time for me.

My Maytag dryer model number MDE5500AYW has lights on, but won't switch settings. It is stuck in time dry at 18 minutes. Yesterday it was on sensor dry 47 minutes. Do I need a new control board inside...


OK, your control board and LED are integrated, so you will need to just replace the control board. I would try a hard reset before replacing the board. Pull the plug or, shut down the appropriate breaker switch for 5 minutes. Re apply power after the 5 minutes are up. if you continue to experience this fault, replace the control board asap.
