Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer

3 Answers

Wont run I have a 88 code on my display. no buttons work at all. sometimes after a couple hours it resets itself but when you hit start the moter tries to come on for a half a second then stops and back to 88 code. This code does not appear in the trouble shooting part anywhere. I have ran tests when I could get it working by hitting a combo of buttons and nothing seams wrong. I actually could get this to work if I put it on time dry 1 minute on low temp, then start and turn it all back up but that won't work at all now

    BB toast thanks for the input but that article isn't for a maytag, it's for a whirlpool. I accessed the service mode on this model. None of the codes or service codes are an 88. Nothing in the manual even says anything about 88

    Brian, I am almost sure this problem is a main control board replacement. Others on this site and another one have had the same problem and the control board fixed the issue. If you see anyone post this issue with the 88 on the display, it's more than likely a control board. They run about $160 and it's a easy fix that anyone can do.

If you place a heating pad over the display, the code will clear and the dryer will work. Sometimes it takes 10 - 15 min to clear. Sounds crazy, but it works for me every time.

    I appreciate you getting back with me on this! I did continue to look into this matter, but could not find anything "simple" which is what most people are hoping for their solution!



    I agree with your assessment, have a good day!

Samsung side by side RFG297AAWP display shows 88 88


Press and hold the energy saver button, and the lighting button at the same time until it beeps and clears, 10 seconds. When it goes back to normal panel do the same thing again which will put the fridge in a running diagnosis mode and see if any parts of the 8's are flashing, if so look on the back of the fridge at the error codes.

Our power went out due to the snow storm, and the display panel shows 88 on each side...how do I reset this...will this cause the fridge temp to go up?


From http://www.samsung.com/us/support/supportMain.do

Your refrigerator is equipped with an onboard diagnostic system. If the diagnostic system detects a fault, it will display a specific line segment on you refrigerators LED display. If your refrigerator is displaying an error code, please note the error code, and reset the refrigerator by unplugging the refrigerator for 30 seconds. When the refrigerator is plugged in, it performs a self diagnostic check of the various sensors and functions. If the error code reappears your refrigerator will require service. Please click the "Create Online Service Request" button below this article to initiate the service process. After a power outage the display panel may start blinking "88 88." If you unplug the unit for 30 seconds then plug it back in the display will return to normal operation after several hours. The power outage/surge can cause a communication error between the circuit boards in the unit. It can take several hours for these boards to stabilize.

If the display does not reset, go to the Samsung Support link above, enter your model number, and follow the prompts to request a service ticket.

Good luck, and if this helps, please rate my answer!

I have a calypso washer it seems to be stuck on the heavy cycle no matter what i dothe display says 53 mins it wont do anyhting wont start if i hit the button wont let me choose another cycle like quick...


I just ran into a similar problem. Ours was stuck on Normal with 42 min. Started beeping every couple minutes last night after bad rain storm. Couldn't get it to stop. it would turn off if I hit stop and a couple minutes kater (like 2min) it would come on by itself. Left it unplugged overnight until about 6:00pm. Plugged it back in and it wnt right back to the normal mode after about 2min. HOWEVER, I keft it sit with the lid open and it beeped every couple minutes for a while then suddenly stopped. I checjked it and it is off, hasn't come back on. I haven't tried to run a load through it yet, so I don't know if it is fixed or not..

I have a code 88 -What is the problem has ben 48 hours


This is an added extra and basically a new problem. Mine is brand new. I hold the left button down, and get the first beep, then hold the right button down, and it beeps multiple times, and stayes at 88. It took about 15-20 minutes of trying this before we got the 00. I think the lock mechanism is broken, as I can't get it locked either at the end, so I just let the system lock itself after 1 minute. We unplugged it and tried again, and still after multple time eventually got it to go to 00. I take it that this isn't normal.

Temp control moves on it's own


Mine was doing the same thing and it was really frustrating! I would come home and it would be 88* inside. I found out that this model air conditoner has had problems with moisture getting in the control panel and shorting it out when it's humid outside. I have the part number if anyone wants it. It cost me about $45 from Sears Parts.
