This is either your start switch or your motor that is bad. I would suggest you begin with the start switch. We love Maytag appliances and we also love the moisture monitor on this model of dryer.

Just contact us at:

We look forward to working with you and hope to get you back to drying right away.
Happy Holidays to you!

My Maytag Quite Plus clothes dryer gets warm but not as hot as it use to. It seems to take a very long time to dry clothes. Vent is clear. The moisture gage seems to flicker lately.


most dryers have two heating elemts and when one goes out this increases the drying time and could cause a elec. short and trip a braker can be replaced.. There is also a saftey switch that goes bad and will not let the heating elemt work properly ?

Remove the rear vent and run a load. If it dries correctly, repair the vent blockage.
If not, replace the gas valve coils.

You need to do a continuity check on the dryer cord. Also manually reset the breakers and make sure you have power (both legs). After this and you still have trouble, do a continuity test on the door switch. The door switch will keep a dryer from operating. After that, you will need to check that your motor is being called to come on. Also check the capacitor and that it is reading the correct microfarad's with in 5%.

This is your complaint;
"I have a Maytag Neptune MDE4000AYW Dryer. The internal light is on but the control panel will not start the dryer. The breaker did not trip, i have full electricity to the dryer. My settings work but will not preform when i press the start button. Is this an internal electrical problem? Can i fix this myself?"

Thank you for providing a valid make and model number!

Tip: A volt-ohm meter is a valuable tool for diagnosing problems.

My Solution:
!. Sometimes a breaker will only trip 1 side of the 2 sided breaker. Reset the breaker by flipping it off then back on to remove any doubt!
Note: This is not 100% positive, as a breaker can fail on 1/2 the sides, so you will need a meter to test voltage, if you have ruled all else out.

2. Sometimes a thermal fuse in the dryer will open due to a venting issue. The fuse is mounted on the blower housing
or on the element tube. See links for part diagram: http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=516650&PPStack=1

http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=1660&PPStack=1

See this link for diassembly procedures:
http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_18.asp

Inspect your vent thouroughly for obstructions. Also, inspect your lint filter if you use fabric sheets, by holding the filter flat under running water. If the water beads up and does not strain through the filter screen, replace the filter and avoid using fabric sheets.

3. The door switch may have failed, see link for part diagram.
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46718, See item no.6.

4.Wiring: The wiring at the dryer terminal block may have burned up. See link for diagram:
http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=516193&PPStack=1


5. Push to start switch failure. See link below:
