Compare the wiring connections on both motors. They may be marked. They may be different. Careful examination will determine the start and run wires. Other wires turn on the heat once the motor reaches running speed. The thermal fuse for the motor is internal and unservicable. The hi limit sensor will control the heat, but will not necessarily turn off the motor.

My dryer bips Problem with the Maytag Neptune MDE5500AZW, SER N 73252332JX Electric Dryer. It bips all the time. Some times don't want to start. Please let me know what is the problem. Thanks! Reema...


Mine does the same thing (it's doing it right now!). I had it looked at and they said I have to replace the mother board. It's going to cost me $300! It stops beeping and works normally most of the time. When the house is humid, it starts beeping again.
Maytag is total garbage. Our Maytag fridge had to have a new compressor installed after only a few years. Our washer and dryer are only a few years old as well. Never buying Maytag again.

Maytag neptune electric dryer MDE5500AYQ not getting hot


You should get a diagram of your dryer *(look on the exterior back panel and under the top lid to see if they put a sticker diagram there.

Your heating element can be shorted open so no heat can be made.

You can easily check the element with continuity meter to see if it's broken. Then, check the part number from the Maytag website and price up a replacement. I would also check Ebay if the unti is older and you want to save some money on the part.

Good luck and be careful...always do your continuity checks with unit unplugged.

Control panel is dead


Well irishs, when you buy something used with no written warranty, its like the old Irish saying. "Ya pays ya money and ya takes ya chances." So!! You either bought a defective unit, or you delivered 120 volts to a 230 volt motor and damaged it. Bottom line is, you have no recourse. Don't feel too bad. I have done this myself on several occasions. The good news is that this is a great time to buy appliances. The stores are practically giving this stuff away! Write this off as a lesson learned my friend...

Maytag neptune dryer wont restart mde 3000 aya


Your dryer needs a new motor. It should cost about $200-250 including labor. Call a local repairman - not a national company. Give him the model number and ask him to bring the motor with him.

Good luck!
