SOURCE: Bravos Dryer blinking start button

Manual says it could be a number of things, and you should have a copy of the manual since you've only had the dryer 3-4 months. If not, go to the Maytag website and download.

Some things to check -

1) Press Start/Cancel if dryer was stopped in a middle of the operating cycle.
2) Check that one of the two breakers has not tripped or fuses blown (if an electric dryer) in your breaker panel.

Please reply the flashing code number so that I may can help you further.

SOURCE: Maytag Electric Dryer - Control panel doesn't light unless door is open

I fixed my own problem...I took the extra 4th wire(green) and attached it to the dryer body...There is a screw with the word ground stamped into the metal above it. This is right next to the panal where the cord goes into. I just unscrewed it and put my cable there and the dryer works perfect.....These things need to have a detailed diagram on the dryer....

Maytag gas dryer LDG7500AAL flame won't stay on longer than about 5 seconds.

The resistance is too weak in the hot surface ignitor to keep the gas valve open and requires replacement.

1 Answer

No dryer heat

If the coils are bad the unit will light with flame for 4 - 8 times then all of a sudden the ignitor will glow, kick off with no gas coming threw valve. it sounds like the high limit thermostat is short cycling the flame. This is the thermostat that sits on top of the burner chamber. remove 1 screw from the thermostat and blend it upwards away from the heat. Then plug unit back in and test to see if the flame stays on longer. Click here to see maytag dryer no heat posts. Contact me anytime here. Hope this helps..

My maytag neptune MDG5500AWQ will heat only on the wrinkle release button. How do I get the front off to clean out the lint. Can't get it with the vacuum. please advise
Here is a good link that will tell you what you need to know. I purchased and inexpensive kit from lowes that has vacuum attachments that will reach into very small cracks and crevices. It has been a very helpful item to have.
Make sure to check the vent on the outside, and the ducting that runs through the wall.
Be very careful, some of the places are very sharp, might be wise to wear some gloves, and be mindful of any wiring you could run into.
Hope that helps,

My Neptue dryer wont dry unless I run it more than one cycle. model no. mdg5500awq. all lights work and seems to run fine it just wont dry the cloths unless I run it at least twice and jeans are three or...

Turn dryer on and go outside to the vent and check for a good amount of air coming out. If you do not have a good amount of air coming out, take the exhaust tubes apart and clean.

Dryer is hooked up but it will not turn on; no lights, no beeps our Maytag Neptune is model number MDG5500AWQ please help

more then likely it is the thermal fuse:

here is a new one, may be cheaper on eBay or faster to get from a repair/service shop:

here is the location, it is on the bottom of this page, Good Luck Tim:

As a test you can tape the two wires together, make sure power is off and do not run dryer like this as it will cause a fire.

The dryer heats up but turns the heat and timing

Neptune won't dry clothes -

I would replace the solenoids. The gas valve is not fully opening. The glow bar may be failing but the coils on the valve are in need of replacing..
