Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
My control board lights up but when you push the buttons nothing happens. It wont start or turn off, and if you unplug it and plug it back in it goes right back to the same settings. We were told it prob was control board. bought a new one and it does the same thing. we checked out the fuses, they all check out. we checked door switch, it seems fine. not sure what else can be checked. everything we check with ohm meter seems to check out fine. This just happened one day and i never had a problem before, its like the buttons are locked or something. thanks, jan
We had the very same problem. First I did the whole unplug to reset thing and nothing changed. Then I took the control panel loose and unplugged all the plugs on the printed circuit board to look for corrosion. The pins all looked fine as well as the female of each plug. I put it all back together and everything worked fine for around two months I reckon. Now the problem is back. Unplugged each plug and put a little bulb grease on all the pins and reassembled it. Seems the problem is fixed again. Time will tell for how long. Obviously it is a connection problem on the printed board.

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...
The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...
