Why does my Neptune moder number mce8000ayw dryer not tumble?


If the motor runs, but the drum doesn't rotate, check the belt, part # 341241. It's probably broken and off of the drum.

I need to take off the lower front of the dryer unit to gain access to the igniter


Just remove the control panel. The screws are accessible from the drying cabinet. There will be 5 screws holding the bottom panel in place from the top. It tilts out then up off the clips.

Drying Cabinet above emits a smoky scent but there is no smoke


These cabinets seem like such a good concept.
While I have never worked on one, I would first take the back off (having disconnected the power) and look for a build-up of lint on the heat exchanger/heating coil assembly. Check that ducts are free of built-up lint and fans turn freely.
Lightly lubricate the motor shafts with a drop of machine oil. reassemble and run a test cycle monitoring carefully (keep a fire extinguisher at hand and a clear path to exit the building, have ready access to a telephone, know how to turn off the main power in your home). You will likely need none of these precautions but it's best to be safe and prepared.
Most dryer failures are related to lint build-up leading to excess heat. Clear vent ducts frequently, clean out the inside every few years, lubricate lightly at the same time.

Dryer makes noise like a bird chirpping.


You'll need to access inside the cabinet and oil the tires and belt pulley. Hope this helps!

Maytag Neptune Drying Center MCE8000AYW


Email me a response to robert_fawbush@yahoo.com and I will be more than happy to provide you with parts breakdown illustrations and possible part numbers and locations to replace. The service amount verses the do-it yourself amount will be well worth the savings. Typical labor cost on appliances are 75.00 per hour and a mark up on the parts. If you feel you can do it yourself after getting the photos e-mailed to you, it will save you approx 200.00 if not a lil less or a lil more.

Please rate this solution "fix-ya" if it seems to satisfy your question.

Maytag Neptune DC Model# MCE8000AYW leaks water from the right side of drying center unit while using the "Wrinkle Release Hanging Dry Only" feature. The leak happens during the steam portion of the cycle....


Stop using the water bottle because the water is overflowing the heater steamer pan and will short the heating element and the part is no longer avaliable and the top will stop drying.

Problem with upper cabinent of Maytag Drying Center.


Mine did same thing within warranty. There is a motherboard problem in them that is cause by power surge during an eletrical storm. First try unplugging for 10 minutes and see if it resets. If that doesn't work, you need to have the motherboard replaced that runs the unit.

Repair man took the front off my unit and replaced entire motherboard. He stated that it was a known issue with that motherboard. I have had no problems since my motherboard was replaced 18 months ago.
