Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
After dryer starts and runs one load it will not start up, when you push button a loud humming noise and overheating smell results.(like wiring).
Sounds like the motor is failing. The main cause of failure is overheating due to clooged venting. Is the dryer taking more than 60 mins to dry?? If so then the vent is clogged. Its likely too that the motor is covered with lint and not being able to properly dissipate its own heat, you could clean it and see if it helps but usually once they are shutting down overheated (the burning smell is the motors' internal windings being very hot) they need replacement.
