Maytag Neptune dryer heat stops after a few minutes

My Maytag Neptune dryer stops heating after a few minutes when operated on the moisture sensor setting. The dryer works fine when operated on the timer setting. The vent line is clear. Should I replace the moisture sensor? How would I diagnose and/or replace the moisture sensor?

Jeff, almost sounds like a timer issue, but I was fooled on this once. Under the consol is a inline resistor from the main plug. If this resistor is bad, dryer keeps running in timed dry. Part number for the resistor is 3401076. Look it up on the web so you know what it looks like. Just splices in.. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Dryer Timer Won't Advance in Auto Mode

Inside the dryer there should be two small metal strips (about 6-7 inches long and about 1/4 inch wide). These are the pieces that detect how much moisture is in the clothing. If possible, unscrew the plastic piece that they mount to, and see if the wires are still attached.

Bear in mind that "auto dry" doesn't usually work well unless you have a well filled dryer (one or two items may not come in contact with the sensors enough to tell the machine to continue heating— since it isn't coming in contact with wet clothing, it thinks the load is "dry".

The problem could also come from the circuitry in the control panel, but I would check these first. The fact that the machine works fine in regular timed cycle indicates that the upper limit and multi temp thermostats are working correctly.

As always, unplug the unit before unscrewing anything.

SOURCE: maytag atlantis gas dryer, will start, heat up but then no heat

Try running it with the vent disconnected and feel the air coming out of the dryer. It should have good flow. If it dries good, your pipe may be clogged.

The gas dryer heats then does not heat. The sensor says 99 minutes to dry close. Tried it on timed heat and it dries then stops drying. Sometimes shutting off completely!


Hello,Cheack to make sure your venting is clean and clear..If its blocked the safty thermostat will shut the heat down to prevent overheating.. If the vent is clean i would check the coils.When they start to fail it will heat then not cycle back on..

Problem with the Maytag Neptune MDG6700A Gas Dryer WHEN STARTED HEATS UP THEN NO HEAT AT ALL. MAYTAG MDG6700AWW


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the dryer heats for few minutes and then it won't work it means that the thermostat is bad and needs replacement. This part is located on the blower wheel housing inside the duct, you can also check this part for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer heats up for a few minutes then stops heating. any ideas? thanks!


This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video on replacing the dryer coils.
You will also find videos of disassembling most style dryers at the same site.

Maytag Neptune MDG 5500 AWQ heats sporatically


your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.

Maytag Neptune Dryer-stopped heating


first, check the exhaust, make sure every inch of it is clean on the inside. if there is any blockage, the heat will build up in the exhaust and a sensor will shut down the heating element.

Check the lint tubing and also for lint underneath the dryer. There is a blockage somewhere for this to happen. This is a built in safety feature for gas dryers that others don't have.
