Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

PS Comes up on Display

Over the past couple of weeks, when I go to turn on my dryer, I hit the start button, the machine makes a clicking noise, a PS comes on the display and then it goes blank. When I go to the breaker - it has not tripped. I trip it myself and then go back in and restart the machine. sometimes it starts and sometimes it doesn't. I also noticed that when I hit the start button, my ceiling light dims slightly and then comes back on. I have had my dryer since 2000 and I love it. I have never had a problem with it. I can't figure out why all of a sudden its having electrical problems. Or, maybe it's my house???

    could be your motor is going out the PS i belive is a power failure code and has nothing to do with the unit not starting the motor could be getting hot and tripping a thermal overload in it after it cools down it will reset and start again until it overheats ..Just my 2 cents worth

Lg DLEY1701V not running but has power to display and controls.


If the belt is not routed properly then the motor will not get power. From the front: belt comes down then around the tensioner, then back to the motor. The tensioner also trips a power safety switch.

The machine will not start. You hit the power button in comes on, but when you press the start button -- nothing happens. You can hear the clicking while pressing it - but it doesn't start drying.
