Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
8.8. code on dryer display
We had a very similar problem. Replacement of the control board seemed to have fixed it.
Before replacing, you might want to visually examine the capacitors and resistors located onteh board. One of the two capacitors was leaking and the resistors had overheated.

The machine control electronics monitors the
exhaust temperature using the thermistor, and
cycles the heater relay on and off to maintain
the desired temperature.
Begin with an empty dryer and a clean lint
1. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
2. Set the following configuration:
? Door - must be firmly closed

? Check wire connections at the machine
control electronics and thermistor. See
