Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Maytag Neptune dryer and it is only about 2 years old. I have several animals and yesterday, I opened the dryer and smoke started to come out. It was clearly the smell of burning hair and there was charred hair on the heating grate. We vacuumed it out and cleaned the lint screen and vent. Now it is either not getting hot or, if it does get hot, it still smells like burnt hair. Also, it gets warm rather than hot. Is there a way to fix that and is there a safety feature that is making the dryer not get hot b/c it senses the problem? I am assuming it is a clog of hair. Please let me know what I can do to fix it.

My dryer bips Problem with the Maytag Neptune MDE5500AZW, SER N 73252332JX Electric Dryer. It bips all the time. Some times don't want to start. Please let me know what is the problem. Thanks! Reema...


Mine does the same thing (it's doing it right now!). I had it looked at and they said I have to replace the mother board. It's going to cost me $300! It stops beeping and works normally most of the time. When the house is humid, it starts beeping again.
Maytag is total garbage. Our Maytag fridge had to have a new compressor installed after only a few years. Our washer and dryer are only a few years old as well. Never buying Maytag again.

Maytag Neptune Dryer with strong "burned electrical wiring" smell


Sounds like the motor went out. Before trying to start it it needs to be inspected. If you are not comfortable opening up the cabinet then I would would recommend calling a service tech. If you need further assistance please let me know.

Maytag Neptune TL clutch problems- Class Action Lawsuit??


I sounds like this is a common problem with the Maytag Neptune TL after about 3-5 years. Mine finally went out yesterday after several months of bearings getting louder all of the time. It looks like the bearings and the controller are gone. What happened to washing machines that last 15 - 20 years?

Dryer drum wont turn


These units use two circuits to operate. It is entirely possible that the circuit breaker for one is open. The breakers are linked units...generally 30-40 amperes. Turn both off and then on.

Maytag neptune dryer won't start


Just a quick question before I look at the control board myself. What are the values/ratings for the capacitor and resistor (ex. farads for cap, ohms for resistor, and volts/amps for both)? Or give me the Vender Part Number so I can look this information up. Thanks!
