  1. If the tumbler won't spin when it operates, unplug it and try to move the tumbler by hand. If it won't budge, then something is jammed. If it turns with no resistance at all, you may have a problem with your drive belt. If it turns with consistent, minor resistance then the problem may be electrical. Follow the instructions of your user's manual to remove the tumbler so the belt drive and motor are visible. Inspect the drive belt. If it hangs loose, it needs to be tightened. If it is frayed or has worked its way up the drive shaft, it should be replaced. Try to turn the driveshaft leading from the motor by hand. If it won't budge, then your motor is seized and needs to be replaced. If nothing is wrong with the belt or the motor, then the problem is in the control circuit. It may be damaged, preventing the motor from engaging.
  2. If the dryer stops working mid-cycle and will not respond to any of the control functions, unplug it, empty it of clothing and pull it away from the wall. Remove the service panel on the back and open it. Be mindful of smoke and the smell of burnt plastic; these are good indications that something carrying electricity has just died. This particular model of dryer is notorious for its electrical plug and power block, which should be the black box near the bottom in the back. If there are any signs of charring, melting, or discoloration, the power cord and block are your culprits. These can be replaced with a new power cord and terminal-connection wire kit obtained at any hardware store. If there is no indication of electrical damage, the problem is likely the control circuit set underneath the control board on the face of the dryer. Such boards can't be fixed, only replaced--a task best left to a certified repairman.
  3. Ultimate Car II Dryers are fitted with a mechanical timer that sends an impulse to the control circuit board to stop running once the set amount of drying time has elapsed. This is because, should an electronic timer fail, this would necessitate the replacement of the entire circuit board. Confirm that the mechanical timer is indeed broken by opening the dryer's door. If the dryer stops, the circuit board is working fine and is not the problem. Simply slide off the protective faceplate of the dryer, unscrew the control board beneath, and flip it over. Connected to the back of the timer's knob should be a small round device with two wires running to the circuit board within the body of the dryer. Unscrew this device from the back of the knob and disconnect the wires. A replacement timer costs a few dollars and should screw into place without trouble. Reconnect the wires and put the dryer back together. It should work fine now.
  4. please comment on these solution staying on how it help.

SOURCE: I have a Maytag Neptune model MDG5500AWW gas dryer that won't shut off

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.

  1. Power the dryer OFF and unplug it from the electrical outlet (You can also trip the circuit breaker if that's easier).
  2. Press and hold the START/PAUSE key for 5 seconds while the unit is without power.
  3. Turn the breaker back on, and power on the unit.

Does the maytag dryer have a reset button. The dryer was working fine then just stopped turning on.


No, they typically don't have a reset button. But they do have safety switches which can fail. Usually there is a microswitch on the door. When the door is open the dryer won't start. Do you have power at all to the dryer? Do any lights light up? If not, you may have tripped your circuit breaker to the dryer and need to reset them. Typically there will be two breaker switches tied together to move as one in your power panel for your house or apartment. If you are not sure the breaker has tripped, it won't hurt anything to switch them off and then back on again. If this does not help, you likely have a failed switch or relay in the dryer that will need to be replaced. Also check that your lint trap does not have a switch which will prevent to dryer from running if you have too much lint in it.

Neptune dryer has power but will not spin.I hear a faint click comming from the left side. model#MDE9700AYM


An electric Neptune clothes dryer, like most electric clothes dryers, has two circuit breakers: one for the drum and another for the heating element. Both breakers need to be in the "on" position for it to run properly. Go to your main circuit box. Reset both of the dryer's circuit breakers to the "on" position. If one of the breakers trips again, there's a problem with the dryer component that it operates. Contact a dryer repair technician to evaluate the machine's condition.
The lid switch is a small latch located on the interior of the door frame on your Neptune clothes dryer. It keeps the door securely shut when the dryer's on to prevent injury should you open the door and reach inside while it's turning. If the lid switch becomes damaged, the dryer won't turn on even though its lights might work. Run your finger over the lid switch and listen for a clicking sound. If you don't hear a sound when the latch is compressed, it's faulty and needs to be swapped out.

The thermal cut-off is a heat-sensitive safety feature on a Neptune clothes dryer that shuts off the heating element if the dryer overheats. After it activates, it can't be reset; you must replace it. Until it's replaced, your dryer might only partially function, so while its lights might turn on, the dryer might not spin or heat. Don't exchange an old thermal cut-off for a new one until you first determine what promoted it to trip, otherwise your dryer likely will overheat again.

Kenmore dryer 70 series 66722690 - has power but won't start (no humming noise, no ticking noise from timer, and no light when you open door) nothing!


I would check the breaker before you go any further. Here are some things to remember when you do this. 1) The breaker for the dryer is generally located outside on the side of the house somewhere near the electric meter. Most 220vac breakers are, which include any electric range, cooktop, wall oven, etc. 2) When your checking the breaker, actually physically touch it. Sometimes breakers can trip a but the spring that actually pulls the breaker to off position is weak and by visual inspection would appear on. Just simply reach in and tap the bar lightly in the off direction. If it pops over to the off position, turn it back on then go check your dryer. If the breaker passes inspection, I would unplug the machine because there migfht be a short at the terminal block where the plug connects to the dryer. After you've unplugged it, remove the back and check to see if everything is ok. I have a strong feeling that you won't need to get to this point cause I'm betting on breaker.

2year old ge dryer trips breaker when it's turned on, but sometimes will run a complete cycle before it shuts off.


HELLO THERE
Electric dryers require the use of a 220 volt line. The dryer heating elements run off of 220 volts. An excessive draw of electricity, or a short in the wiring can blow a fuse or trip a breaker. This happens to protect sensitive components from damage, and to help prevent fires. Every other dryer component operates off of 110 volts, the timer, motor, etc. Usually when a fuse blows or a circuit trips, it's because there's to much draw on the power line.
It is very possible for one part of your dryer to work fine, and yet another to have a problem, such as a short circuit. A short circuit may be caused by the heating element, internal wiring, or the main power cord.
To troubleshoot this problem, unplug the dryer and check to see if the circuit breaker or fuse remains on when the dryer is unplugged. If they stay on, it's more than likely the problem is somewhere in the dryer.
If your fuse blows, or the circuit breaker trips when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the circuit breaker, fuse box, or house wiring; contact a professional electrician.

OK I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael
