Unplug the unit.
Remove the top panel(two bolts in the rear metric 10 or Phillips will work) There are four screws across the top front of the control panel remove those and the panel will swing out and down,move it back and forth while pulling upward it has plastic clips on the bottom that keep it in place.follow the wires from the panel to the control board and unplug them or you can just lay the whole panel on top of the unit.
Open the dryer door and remove the two phillips screws on either side at the bottom of the door opening,then remove the four screws across the top of the panel it will lean out toward you,unplug the door/light switch and lift the front panel off the bottom clips.
You're probably looking for the thermal fuse located in the plastic elbow of the blower housing at the bottom of the unit it will be the round metal disc with a brown or black plastic backing.check your vent going outside and make sure it is completely clear/open doesn't have to be spotless clean but if it gets restricted in any manner it will blow this fuse.

Maytag Neptune Dryer, Light inside with door open, but no lights up on top and does not run, can you please help me out, or where to start?


Check the breaker or fuse box. Sounds like one leg of the 220 volts is tripped. Reset it or replace the fuse if so.

I have a maytag neptune model mdg5500aww gas dryer. the light comes on but it wii not let me program it to start or stop what could be wrong? is there a way to troubleshoot


1) The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.
Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.
2) Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
it is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
3) Timer may be defective

How do you get inside a Neptune Dryer. and then i have to figure out why the dryer is not heating?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair.It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel (which comes apart for testing thermal fuse) to the exhaust duct. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hi,
When the dryer wont heat it is the thermal fuse that is bad, you can test it with a voltmeter before replacing. This fuse is located inside the rear panel and it cannot be reset.
