I have a maytag dryer that sometimes when I hit the start button will start and run for only a few minutes and stop and wont start again for a while and does a humming noise when it does star why?


Sounds like the motor is going into thermal overload (Getting hot) it may be caused by the motor itself, or could be overloaded by bearings or fan etc

I have a maytag Neptune NDE3000AYW and the dryer turns on, runs for a few seconds and stops. took it apart and cleaned all the lint and dust. after a while it will run again for a few seconds and stop. ...


Check the door switch. It may be at fault here. Open the door and hold the switch by hand and start the dryer. The switch should have a firm resistance to it when you push it. If you should find this bad, here is the replacement switch. If the switch is ok, then the motor is bad. Here is the motor to order.

Keep me posted!

Replace the cord first. You won't be able to tell for sure unless it's replaced. Dryers pull so many amps and the dryer cord becomes hot while running it. The heat causes them to break down over time.

Timer runs continuously - Does not stop at all


There should be a timer motor on the timer. That is most likely burnt out and will cause the timer to not shut down. Just replace the timer and that will solve the problem

Maytag 5806 Gas Dryer starts and suddenly stops.


You may have a problem with a thermal overload sensor. Since it runs and then shuts off, this sounds like the problem.

Dryer not working but the light is on


Add peanut butter for better taste. lol... but seriously, the dryer should be be disassembled somewhat so that all the chocolate (or the residue it left) can be completely cleaned out. Unplug it of course. Get a can of electrical spray cleaner from an auto parts store and squirt off everything electrical inside.
