Question about Maytag Neptune MDE4000 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I just installed power to my dryer from the electrical box. The dryer turns on but the element does not work. I checked power everywhere. I have a double pull breaker and a seperate line running to each side of the 220 power. I check the element for continuity and it is good. What else can I check?

Check the thermal fuse located on the blower wheel housing,if it's round it's a 3390719 or if it's not round it's a 3392519,while your in there,take off the front panel of the blower wheel housing,it's located under the lint filter,clean the lint out of the duct,vac the inside of dryer and when you have it running go outside and make sure the flapper is blowing open,you could have a blocked vent line,the lint buildup is usually what pops the thermal fuse,also when you read out the part you are checking always pull one of the wires off or you'll get a false reading

Electric dryer will not heat,everything else is working


Unplug power cord & pull the back off and use ohm meter to
to check the heating element also check if the element is ground to the heater box. Check the thermal fuse, the cutout fuse & thermostat on the heater box. Check the operating thermostat and any others you see. Last check the centrifucal switch on the motor the heating wire goes through it. To check this switch connect ohm meter to terminals it will show open unless motor is running so take a screwdriver & lift up on switch button then it should show continuity. Hope this helps

Dryer is not heating up.


90% of electric dryers emitting cold air need a new heating element installed. If you've checked the thermal fuse, and verified the unit has around 220 volts of power, then the only thing left is the heating element. Typically costs around $40-$60. Can be done by you if you have basic electrical knowledge, otherwise call an electrician.

The old element has 3 wires the new element only


You need to take the high limit thermostat off of the old element. It sits over one of the terminals of the heating element, and has two termnals on it. It should just be one screw to take it off.

If this is a new element, this is normal until it has been used a few cycles. Use it and watch it carefully for a while. If it continues have a competent person to take the rear panel off and check for burnt wires or lint inside the unit.

Disconnect the dryer from your vent completely,. pull dryer out 3 ft. from wall and test to see if the smell continues, You have to test for a few minutes to clear out any burning lint from vent restrictions. If the smell hoes away then you know you have venting problems. Also check on the grate that covers the element( the part you look through when you see the orange glow from the element) sometimes plastic or clothing burns onto this grate and needs to be cleaned off. I the smell remains, you will have to tear down the dryer to see if you can find the cause of the smell.

No heat will come from the dryer


Check the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical box. Push off, then on. If the breakers trip immediately, then you have a direct short circuit in the dryer, usually the heating element which involves removing the drum to get at the element(s). If the breakers hold, then try the dryer. If you get heat--ok. If drum turns, but no heat--check with a voltmeter across the two slanted slots in the power socket. You should read ~220 volts AC. If near zero, then one of the breakers is probably bad. Get an electrician to replace the breaker pair.

Dryer will not produce hot air. What could be the problem? I opened the back panel and there is a square shaped box that was hot. Is that the heat element?


The heating element should be nearly the diameter of the drum and is generally round. If the box of which you speak is about 4 to 6 inches square, it is probably an electrical connection box and shouldn't be getting hot. If this box has a removable cover, unplug the power cord and remove the cover--look for loose connections. If all ok, replace cover. Does the drum turn? Start the dryer and check for air blowing from the outside vent. If not, check for plugged lint filter (wash with hot water and detergent) and lint plugging the flex-hose between the dryer outlet and the outside vent. After running for a little while, feel the back of the drum to see if is generally hot--if so, then the heating element appears to be working. Hope this helps.

First you need to know if the element is heating up. Are the clothes hot? If so, you need to check your vent hose and duct. A clogged vent will not let the moisture out and will cause long dry times.
If the the element is not heating or barely heating, you need to check your wiring. Make sure the power cord is properly installed. If you have 4 wires in the cord, you will have black and red on the ends with white in the middle and green to cabinet.
If you have a fuse box in your house instead of a breaker box, check the fuses. There are 2 fuses for the dryer. The element needs both fuses to work but the motor will still run if one blows.
Post back if you have any questions.
