The drum on our Neptune Dryer has stopped turning. It still heats up, but the drum just won't turn.


If the heater and blower work then th eprblem is with the drum turning system
This includes the motor ( which we will presume works because the blower does),the belt (Item #25 in the Cylinder, heater and bulhead diagram) and a spring and idler pully (Items 20 and 21 in the Base, Motor, and blower diagram)
Most likely problem is the spring broke releasing tension that halds the belt to the motor pully and drum. Second most likely is the belt has stretched.
You need to open the unit to determine where the problem lies.
Here are diagrams and parts listing for that machine.
Good luck!

Maytag Neptune MDE3000AYW. The start button on my dryer went out. It tried to start and then died and smelled burnt. I am guessing the switch burned up. Any thoughts on how to fix it? Thanks


sounds like motor is in a bind see if you can rotate drum by hand if you cant then your belt is hung up,or a belt pully is bad,if drum turns freely,sound like motor is going bad

ANt diagram of how the belt goes on the Maytag


pull the loop on the bottom of the tumbler once you have it warped around and hanging free
pull that loop twords the motor under the idler pully
both side of the loop
pull the loop twords the motor hub, you may need to left the idler pully to gain a liitle slack
once on the motor let go of the idler and it should tighten the belt

Belt won't stay on the pulley


These belts are really sensitive. Try messing around with it. Making srue that the belt isnt coming off the big tub pully. You tub pully isnt loose is it. Make sure the bolt that hold the pully onto the tub is tight on. Make sure the pully isnt loose. Inspect it for any small craks where that boltt tightens up. If the pully check out ok. Check the small motor pully as well. Make sure that isnt loose or anything. Pull on it if if its loose then thats you problem.. Inspect both pullys good. I would assume belt is in good shape right? If both pullys check out ok, then i would try to get the belt on and just mess around with it, spin the pully and if you se the belt starting to slip off adjust it as you keep spinning the pully....hope this helps

Very loud spin cycle


The link below, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, shows that the rear bearing comes with the outer tub only and is very pricey! I have been unable to find a service agency that offers just the bearing. Very aggravating. www.maytag.com would be a good place to define your issue.

Belt Tension


If you are sure the belt is slipping, you need to replace the belt. Mine was making a growling noise that sounded like it might have been a slipping belt but it turned out to be a motor drive problem. I fixed mine with a motor/control board kit (ebay) for $155.00. However, there was a note with the kit that indicated that the symptom on that particular model might have been simply a bad cable connection at the motor end of the cable. The wire lugs are crimped-on in the motor connector and could work loose - the motor jumps around quite a lot during spin start-up...
