Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
One possible solution:
My (ongoing) theory is that these dryers develop CONDENSATION in the electronics located in the control panel. I seem to be able to "cure" the problem, but it will eventually return and require another dose of "cure." It seems to me that it is a DESIGN DEFECT from the factory.
The "cure" (and I can't speak for all similar problems, but since this is easy and free, worth a try) is to take a BLOW DRYER and BLOW DRY THE CONTOL PANEL. Use HOT, but don't FRY the plastic of the control panel, but you will have to get it HOT, not just lukewarm. And it may take a while. At the moment, I have a small "office" style heater oscillating on the control panel because my arm got tired. However this SEEMS to solve the problem, temporarily, and makes the dryer work again.
I am working on a PERMANENT cure for this and will update everyone when I have established whether my proposition will actually work. But understand this: the actual cure will likely cost $0 and be able to be performed with common household items, if my intuition is correct on this. I will let everyone know when I do.

Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry,Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
