There is not a reset button but you have a control board that controls all the commands and functions on this model.

You can contact us at: from 7 AM until 9 PM CST and we can overnight the correct parts to you after we know what your dryer is not doing right.
We hope to get you drying clothes ASAP.
Thanks, Ella

SOURCE: My maytag neptune dryer will

Try this (you may need two people):
1. Open the dryer door and locate the door switch. While pushing the door switch in, have someone else push the start button.
2. You'll hear the noise. Keep pushing both buttons and take your other hand, reach in side and grab one of the drum fins and manually push the drum in a clockwise direction.
If it does not start, the motor needs to be replaced. If it is still under full warranty, simply call a repairman.
If this works, turn the dryer off, close the door and try to start it again just by pushing the start button. If it works, it may have been something obstructing the drum from turning. OR, the motor could be going out. It may continue to start on its own for an unkown period of time, a day, a week, and year. But eventually it will go out and will need replaced.
Replacing the motor is a bit involved, but if you want to attempt it I can walk you through it.
There should be a 5 YEARS warranty on the motor, so you might consider a repairman. Make sure they are Amana certified and there will be no cost to you for the motor. The labor, however, may be up to you and could be expensive.

I'm willing to assist you on whatever you decide.

Best, G

SOURCE: I have a 6 year

Did you also clean all the internal vent duct work inside the machine? You will get lint buildup on the thermostats that act as a blanket and will cut the heat prematurely causing the unit to run at a cooler temperature. What is the model number that is listed on the dryer? Look in the dryer door for the number.

Why is my Maytag Neptune Elec Dryer MD55 chirping? How can I fix it?

Could be a bad spot on the drive belt. Each time it moves over the motor pulley it slips. If the chirp is happening at the same interval over and over I would check the belt.

The Neptune can sometimes be reset. God knows the repairman for Maytag really needs to get back to work, yet to reset the cpu on your washer/dryer just unplug the unit for 60 seconds. I hope this helps you out.

Need to reset the program of our maytage neptune TL ver: FAV6800AWQ

""need to reset the program of our maytage neptune TL ver: FAV6800AWQ ""

The only hard reset to the Control Board is to unplug your FAV6800A from the 120VAC service outlet then reconnect.

I feel this will not clear your machine issue. What do you mean by reset the program of our maytage neptune TL?

Don't...Unless you have a concrete floor you will never be satisfied with the pedestal. Your front loader will shake a lot more. People buy these things then I go to there house with a "shaking" problem and then they get mad at me because I tell them it's because of the pedestal. Front loaders were designed on concrete floors so they're only going to work like they say on concrete floors. Do a little research before you make that decision please. Not to mention they're about 200 dollars or more. Just a heads up I don't mean to bring ya down.

I have a Maytag MD55 dryter and one of the paddles

You remove the door screws with the triangular plastic plates and screws for the door on the opposite side. pull front forward and down. Remove the two bolts at top corners to raise top (unplug machine of course). screws are on outside of drum. When reassembling, make sure that the right screws go with the right area (The wider screws go in the triangular plates and the thinner go in the door) Make sure the door hinges are put in their grooves before reinserting the front.
