Question about Crosley Dryers

Control panel does not respond on Crosley Dryer Model CDE4205AYJ

None of the buttons respond on this Crosley HE Electronic Dryer Model CDE4205AYJ. The control panel lights up but nothing else. The control panel doesn't have the usual knobs, but it has one of those electronic bubble-type switch panels, like the ones on many microwave ovens. I opened up the back of the top console the control panel is on and found a schematic and troubleshooting guide. It says how to access the diagnostic mode. Most times the buttons don't respond to get into diagnostic mode. The few times it did go into diagnostic mode (I could see a "d" on the display, as per the troubleshooting guide) I couldn't get past that point because the buttons don't respond. Do I have a bad control board, the one all the cables plug into? Could this be caused by a bad high limit thermostat, door switch or anything else? Thanks!

Don't you just love electronic controls. On the inside of the dryer is like it always was back in the day with mechanical timers. The same old problem the old ones had is the blower wheel slips and causes overheating or a ball of lint at the base of the filter chute. This eventually blows the FUSE. Their is 2 of them fuses so look close one is usually behind a shield out of sight and may have been overlooked. DIAGRAM

SOURCE: Follow up on an earlier problem

I have had the same problem over the past several months. Typically it would clear itself out (clear 8.8. on display) after several minutes. Today it reoccurred but this time it would not clear. I knew it was a problem with the control board. So I removed the control board and discovered that the capacitor for the 5VDC power had ?popped?. I replaced the capacitor and every thing worked! Hope this helps.

Problem resolved. Although the membrane control panel passed the diagnostic test, it was defective. Probably a low voltage conductor went to ground, allowing the buttons to operate but throwing the control board into error mode.

SOURCE: Maytag Electric Dryer - Control panel doesn't light unless door is open

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....

Bad control panel. Replace the control panel at When your control panel clicks like that it means that a resistor or solder joint has gone bad and it is cheaper and easier to just replace the board

Crosley gas dryer will not work

Probably caused by failure of a cheap chinese control board. In fact, failure-prone chinese control boards are at the heart of virtually all premature failures of modern appliances. They usually only last just long enough to span the warranty period.

Crosley CAWC529PQ1 won't turn on.

First, you'll need to make sure you have the proper voltage at the outlet, and the power cord terminals fit tightly into the outlet slots. Based on your post, you most likely have a faulty electronic control board.
Here is the board to order.

Is there a reset code for maytage neptune MD55?

There is not a reset button but you have a control board that controls all the commands and functions on this model.

You can contact us at: from 7 AM until 9 PM CST and we can overnight the correct parts to you after we know what your dryer is not doing right.
We hope to get you drying clothes ASAP.
Thanks, Ella
