SOURCE: maytag gas dryer
This is valid for a Maytag Neptune MDG3000AWW Gas Dryer (I am responding to a problem which was mis-identified as a MDG5500AW Gas Dryer)
NOTE: Motor problems begin intermittantly. They can be temporarilly fixed by blowing out the motor with compressed air. Eventually ALL motors fail. In my case, with six kids it took 10 years for our Maytag motor to fail. YMMV.
crosstip medium screwdriver
1/4 inch socket
5/15 inch socket
a. Remove the door and opposite side door plugs (crosstip screws)
b. Remove the front panel - this exposes sheet metal bolts (5/16 inch) some with crosstip on left and right of unit. Set panel aside (right side) WITHOUT unplugging wires
c. Unscrew all the exposed bolts.
d. Top bolts left and right secure the unpainted metal hooks which secures the top of dryer. Unscrew these bolts and wiggle the metal retainer hooks off. Lift top and support to create 6 inch gap in the front (top unit hinges in back and has electrical connections - do NOT disconnect wires)
e. Release belt from pulley by reaching left and under drum (this is out of sight)
f. gently lift out drum and belt and set aside
Observe the motor. Listen and smell. IF you see smoke from the motor, or IF you hear a "starting sound" but the motor itself doesn't spin, is very slow to start spinning, or makes racket, or it made a noise and then stopped... THEN your motor is burned out. Confirm by sniffing the motor. IF the motor smells burned, THEN your motor is burned out.
NOTE: If your motor is burned out it CANNOT be fixed because it is a "double wound motor." The motor must be replaced.

SOURCE: Maytag Epic dryer won't start
if it beeps it means that the keypad is sending a signal to the control board to start it but it doesn't. since the control board sends a signal to the motor to start the dryer to spin. does the dryer hum?

There are several things that can cause this. 1 st the thermal fuse(white plastic piece with 2 wires attached to it, then the igniter, is it glowing orange when you start the dryer, then the flame sensor located on the side of the burner assembly and finally the gas coils located on the gas valve close to the burner assembly. If the igniter is glowing orange and then going out without ignition change the gas coils, Hope this helps,

first check and make sure the power breaker is on. next the door when it closes there is a safety switch normaly there is a small hole around the frame of the door. when you push on it, you shoud hear a clicking noise. if you don"t, that switch will prevent the tumbler from turning another thing is the belt that goes around the tumbler if it's loose or broken the tumbler will not turn. that can be checked by accessing the bottom panel in the back the belt should be tight. good luck!

If your unit is not drying well or slow dry it is being caused by poor external venting rather than internally. first make sure you are not crushing the vent hose behind unit then next clean venting in wall and make sure outside flaps are opening and closing properly before opening up dryer. Easy way to tell if it the machine or venting is to take vent hose off and connect a pair of sheer pantyhose to exhaust port on back of dryer and run a few loads if all works well your issue is in the wall not the machine
