MDE5500AYW MAYTAG DRYER WON'T START

I have a maytag neptune dryer. I put a pair of basketball shoes in it with some sheets and now it stopped working. All the lights go on, but it won't start a cycle. when I push a button it beeps but won't start. I tried unplugging it for a while and when I plugged it in it said "PF" for a second. Any ideas?

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

My maytag neptune MDE5500AYW will not stop unless it is unplugged


if you have it on time dry and it counts down but won't shut off you most likely have a bad computer board,part number 33003028 and it's around 180 dollars.on older machines it would be a problem with the timer not going to off but you have a computer board in your machine and it takes the place of the timer and other functions,just about everything runs through the computer board.

I have a Maytag Neptune clothes dryer and have had it for years with no problem, love my dryer!!! However, this morning I tried to dry some towels and a code 8.8. displays on the display screen.. Please...


There is a technical sheet inside your dryer's cabinet. You can usually find it by accessing the rear of your dryer. All the fault codes should be explained in this paperwork.

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.

Dryer just stopped working in mid cycle.


Verify there is still power at the wall and check the thermal fuse.

Maytag Neptune dryer won't start/


I do not have that specific dryer but try these simple steps.
Maybe they will help you.
1. Shut the electric breaker off to the dryer for about 30 seconds and and back on.
2. Open the dryer door and inspect the switch that tells the dryer the door is closed. work it by hand just to make sure it is not stuck.
3. Spin the timer controls to another setting and see if the other setting will work.

That's all I've got for now...
