Problem with upper cabinent of Maytag Drying Center.

I have the Maytag Neptune Drying Center and have a problem. The lower unit works fine, but the upper cabinet is not working right. All the conrols light up but the unit is not drying clothes. The display came up with a PF notice (power failure). We have restarted it and the timer counts down the time, but the unit is not working. Help.

Re: Problem with upper cabinent of Maytag Drying Center.

Mine did same thing within warranty. There is a motherboard problem in them that is cause by power surge during an eletrical storm. First try unplugging for 10 minutes and see if it resets. If that doesn't work, you need to have the motherboard replaced that runs the unit.

Repair man took the front off my unit and replaced entire motherboard. He stated that it was a known issue with that motherboard. I have had no problems since my motherboard was replaced 18 months ago.

Top works fine, bottom no heat, does this unit have seperate heating elements or could it just be the internal fuse

Are you talking about the element you where looking into the element shroud and that is what you saw? If so your element is gone you can buy a complete element at your local parts depot.The element is fused on to the shroud makeing a dead short. Hope i fixya :)

Maytag Neptune DC Model# MCE8000AYW leaks water from the right side of drying center unit while using the "Wrinkle Release Hanging Dry Only" feature. The leak happens during the steam portion of the cycle....

Stop using the water bottle because the water is overflowing the heater steamer pan and will short the heating element and the part is no longer avaliable and the top will stop drying.
