Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
My Maytag Neptune Dryer electric dryer seems to work fine with one important exception -- whenever I run it, the laundry room fills with the strong smell of burning rubber or plastic. I do not see actual smoke. The vents are all clear. I'm afraid to run it anymore until I get it repaired. I'm pretty handy, but I've not ever cracked open an electric dryer. Thoughts? Clues? Questions? Help?
I had this exact problem, same model.
It's the door gasket !
I ripped it off, threw it in garage.
Problem solved !

Could be the board, could be a motor, could be a belt but i would run it intill something just stops or try your best to take it apart and look through things and see if you can see an indication.

The drum belt could be rubbing on something inside. Does the dryer make a squeeking noise? Se if there are small rubber particles on the bottom, this will indicate a deteriating belt.
