Why does my Neptune moder number mce8000ayw dryer not tumble?


If the motor runs, but the drum doesn't rotate, check the belt, part # 341241. It's probably broken and off of the drum.

HOW TO PUT MY DRYER BELT BACK ON TRACK


Go to Partselect.com. they will ask for model number and serial number of your dryer. They have every single little part for appliances but better yet they have video's on how to make the repairs. They also have schematics for every conceivable appliance made. the prices are very reasonable and the customer service is top notch!

Where can I buy a replacement belt for my Maytag Neptune MDG5500AWW dryer?


Nearly every appliance store and appliance repair shop sells replacement belts. Your area Sears / kMart retail store will have them, too. Many hardware stores sell them as well.

if you don't mind waiting, you can find them online, too. Here's a list of places that Google found for Maytag Belts. You should use a combination of Maytag dryer model number and the number that appears on the belt to obtain a replacement.

Good luck!

Need to change belt on maytag dryer but dont know how to do it on this model . any help would be great


Get the Model number and order a Dryer Maint Kit from either of these sites.
http://www.partselect.com/
http://www.repairclinic.com/

If you have the belt already then open the dryer door and there should be a couple screws in the opening where the door normally closes at the top. Remove those and then the door should be able to completely come off then you will have access to the belt area.
Good Luck!

Electric Maytag Neptune Dryer - rattling noise


Your probably going to have to remove the rear panel and take a look to see what is causing the noise.
Disconnect the power cord and exhaust tube, remove the rear panel and check for anything loose.
You can also pop the lid and fold it back to inspect the top of the tub and belt. Roll the drum all the way around and inspect the belt for "chunks" missing.
If you include your model number, I can send you a web site that will show you an exploded view of the dryer.
Regards,

My Neptune dry tub does not spin. I tried to spin it by hand and it was difficult. Can I repair this myself rather than have a repair man do it?


As you may imagine, a dryer is about the most simple household electric item there is. It is a gigantic tub that has a huge belt around it that attaches to an electric motor. The belt is rubber and subject to wear, as well as extreme heat caused by the whole process.

90% of the time its the belt, but unusually, your motor could be fried (which makes repair worthless). It's no wonder people make a living off of taking these units off the side of the road, replacing the belt for $20 and selling them on CL for $100.

You need to locate the model number and/or serial number for your unit. Also you need to open it up (which should be easy) and confirm the belt is mangled, and the motor spins fine. The belt could also just have jumped the track, and you can replace it. Replacing the belt is similar to putting a chain back on a bicycle. Usually if the belt jumps the track, it needs replacement anyway. Take the belt off/out of the way, and run the dryer to confirm the electric motor is running fine.

After that plug you model number and/or serial in google, with "replacement belt" and you should be able to find information on it.
