Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer has power but will not start.

Dryer will not start...everytime I press Start, the digital readout changes to "88" and then back to the default settings. I've tried to change outlets, flipped the breakers many times, and still can't seem to get any setting to actually start the dryer.

    Same power problems. I unplug the power, it comes up with 88 and none of the controls respond to touch.

You might have a wiring issue in the dryer or a bad control board.

How to reset codes on a yl88 keyless electronic digital door lock lost the manual and cannot work it have no emergency module


Okay Guyz n' Galz...Finally I solved this by lot of iterations. I have YL-88, YL-68 and D77 Digital locks. They are all made by Yili from China with buttons placed circularly. Warning, to reset it might not work on button placed in square pattern (YL-99).

Default master code is 0123# all the locks mentioned above.
Now to reset the master code, press and hold the reset button(red) for 2-5 secs on the battery pack, and remove one battery. Release reset button. Give 5 to 10 secs. Then press and hold reset button first, put back the battery into it.
Now the lock is reset to factory default. i.e., 0123#.
Warning: Make sure the default works before you close the door and lock.

Now to apply new master code: Enter default 0123# and wait till the sound is gone and the light is still lit. Start your new code starting with '0' and end with * key (not the # key). It will beep twice. Your new master code is ready to use. Now if it does not beep twice. Try from the begining with default code.

Enjoy

I'VE HAD MY DRYER 3 YEARS. POWER COMES ON BUT WHEN YOU PUSH START BUTTON THERE'S JUST A PAUSE AND THE ERROR CODE " F". PLEASE HELP!!


Select any one button (except POWER, START, and STOP) and follow
the steps below, using the same button (remember the button):
Press/hold
3 seconds
➔ Release for
3 seconds
➔ Press/hold
3 seconds
➔Release for
3 seconds
➔ Press/hold
3 seconds
All indicators on the console will
momentarily turn off, then turn back on with 88 displayed. After
5 seconds, the Automatic test begins.
Use the tech sheet info on page 2 as a starting point

Note to get the exact tech sheet or manual for your machine go to ServiceMatters and post your model number.

This is the 3rd time I have had this problem, my Neptune sensor touch pad dryer will not start, it reads 8.8 on the display. If I unplug the unit so that only one side has power (110), when you open the...


We have the same Maytag Dryer MDE5500AYW and after reading a few posts of possible fixes--Turn Power Off them back On to reset---Replace Control Board-- Then I saw APPLY HEAT to the panel control area AND IT WORKS. I put a small heater on the dryer top in front of the Control Board Panel Readout and after it warmed up the 88 went out and when I pushed Start It Works.

I think that cold weather has something to do with the problem. In Dallas it is 42 degrees outside and 70 degrees inside But the dryer vent is connected through the outside insulated brick wall and the cold air coming forom the outside vent makes the inside of the dryer COLD until the dryer is in operation.

Long story short--I will keep the heater handy in case It is needed until the weather warms up.

Change the digital read out for time and charge.


There are actually two hidden buttons that you cant see below the start button... Change the amount to what you prefer and press the hidden button across from the low temp. button twice.
Hope that helps, Mike

Error code DR


Pull the tech sheet out of the dryer ( behind the lower front access panal ). The lights flashing are trying to tell you a fault code.

A copy:

MODEL DIFFERENCES: • Better models have a digital readout display
• Good models do not have a digital readout display
READING ERROR CODES 1. Position cycle selector knob to the 3 O’clock position.
2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.
3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.
4. Rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O’clock position.
On better model dryers, the error code will appear in the digital display. On good models, the five indicator lights of
Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid, and Clean Lint Filter Spin will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code
and the START indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit. Take separate counts of each indicator
light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code. The code is obtained by counting
the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: The five indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the
START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The five indicator lights and the START indicator light start
flashing at the same time. The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.
Note: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine.
A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15
Example Code E4A: the first digit would be 4 and the second digit would be 10. If this code would appear on a dryer in
the Good model line, the five indicator lights would blink four times and the START indicator light would blink ten times.
Troubleshoot problem by using chart below.
To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button. To clear code, press the Select button.
To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons for six seconds.

3 beeps mean what


If the only thing that happens is three rapid beeps when you select a feature from the console this is usually a symptom of a defective door switch.  The door switch must be closed to complete the circuit from the timer to the heating circuit and drive motor.  If the switch is bad, or the wiring is broken, the dryer will not run.
