Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
I have a Maytag Neptune dryer (MDE5500AYW, SN 10485819ZB). Went to press start button and heard a click and then the control panel went blank. Dryer light still comes on and checked both phases of incoming power at the power wire terminal on the dryer and they look fine. Took cover off back to look at the back of the control board - I don't see anything that looks burned up (didn't smell anything either) and I don't see any kind of fuses or anything that might have opened. Seemed like something just tripped out when it happened. I assume that something on the control panel board failed but I have no experience with this type of equipment. Based on my description, what are the likely culprits? Thanks.

SOURCE: Where's the power source...
He most likely want you to check the power at the wall plug...Red to white 120v black to white 120v and Red to black 240v... if you have it at the wall check the other end of the pig tail .. make sure a wire is not burn off at the terminal block...

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....

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.
