Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.
To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

What you have is a obstructed dryer vent. If you remove the vent hose from the unit you will see moisture inside it. This is why your unit isn't drying. If the heater has no air flow the overload is tripped. Check your vent for any blockage most of the problem is at the outside end of your vent. there's a flap or chicken wire you may find the obstruction there. Or you can use a leaf blower connect it to the inside vent, cover the outside vent with pantyhose. ( so you don't get lint allover your yard ) and you can clear your like that way. Good luck hope this helps

Chances are the little plastic latch keep is broken. Look at the door and locate a peice that will press into the front area where the clothes go in.
Once you see it, check the keeper and see if it is broken. The door should not just pop open.

I have a maytag neptune dryer. When I open the door it doesn't turn on . What could be the problem?
This is normal! The dryer has a door switch that will prevent it from operating with the door in the open position. This is a safety feature and cannot be overidden.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Also remove the screws from the lint filter.
Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
I hope this helps
