Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer

3 Answers

I have a Maytag Neptune model MDG5500AWW gas dryer that won't shut off. Here is the scenario:The dryer runs continuously and dries the laundry but will only stop when you open the door or unplug it from the wall. If you press the stop button the LCD display will turn off but the dryer continues to run. When the dryer is plugged in, the LCD panel is lit and you can set the timer but the timer will not count down.Again the dryer works fine, except the only way to turn the dryer off is to unplug from the wall or to open the door. What can be the problem?

A couple of issues occur with this particular dryer. One is that the use of dryer sheets can cause a film to cover the sensor bar tricking the control board into thinking that the contents have not dried yet causing the machine to run continuously. Some have fixed this by cleaning the sensor bar with alcohol; others had to replace it Part #33001809 for about $21. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/33001809/0026/464
The second common problem is the control board itself part #33002576.. There are no serviceable features about it (other than check for loose connections) and the price is around $100 re manufactured at http://www.partsimple.com/33003028r-may-r-12.html?gclid=CKL9ssmvq74CFQET7AodAjMA6w
Sears Parts direct will not sell you one without one of their technicians installing it. The reason is that this is a substitution part and may require some wiring changes. Good luck.

On the face of it it sounds like the timer motor is not going and has stuck in the on position, but I would seek further advice. Someone competent and qualified should check whether the timer motor is getting any voltage and is working

Maytag mdg5500aww gas dryer sensor


First of all shut off the power by pulling out the plug.

If you are sure of the sensor issue then you need to remove four screws on the inside of the door. Two screws are located on the left and two on the right, look at the hinge and you will find two. The door will lift out when you remove the screws. When the screws are out of the front, the front panel can be remove by pulling on the outside surface.

Heats upon start-up then heat shuts off


This could be caused by a partially burnt heating element or a faulty high limit thermostat. The more likely cause ( I think) would be the high limit thermostat. It is a small round black device mounted on a metal plate. It is usually attached to the internal ductwork with two screws. You can test it with a multimeter for continuity. It should have none. If it has continuity, then it is stuck open and is defective. Hope this helped and best wishes.
