Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

Maytag Neptune Dryer

I have a Maytag Neptune Dryer that I purchased in 2005 that just quit. I unplugged it and plugged it back up once and about 15 minutes later the lights on the control panel came back on and the dryer worked for about 30 minutes and that was it. Now the light inside the dryer comes on but the control panel doesn't do anything, no lights or anything.
My wife is wearing me out about fixing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Maytag neptune dryer pf code

it sounds like you have a bad computer board if it's stuck on 19 minutes and the pf is for power failure,this is only a guess,the best thing would be to call in a tech to check it so you know what the problem is,the board is expensive or you can order the board from repair clinic,if it's not the problem you can send the board back to them.did your power go out for some reason like a storm or something?this can take out any computer board

I have a 10 year old Maytag Nepture MDE5500ay with a membrane control panel. When I touch any button on the membrane it immediately indicates a 8.8. on the display. I have unpluged the machine and waited...

The 8 code generally means a stuck keypad which can only be resolved by replacement of the keypad.

The service manual at the link below will give you some guidance in section 9. Good Luck

Maytag Neptune Dryer taking hours to dry a load

Hello Friend, Your solution is simple. It sounds like your dryer is working properly, and your actual problem is a blockage somewhere in your 4 inch exhaust tubing. Check it and make sure it is not clogged up with excessive lint. Also if your tubing is clear you need to check your connection where it travels thru the wall etc. It would be a good idea to find the actual location where it exits to the ouside and check for good airflow. Your dryer is equiped with a safety thermistat and if you are not getting the proper exhaust flow the burner will cut off and restart in the manner that your's is doing. I Hope I have helped you, Tim. And please don't forget to give me your rating for my help.

Maytag Neptune MDG 5500 AWQ heats sporatically

your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.
