Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
Well, ours just caught fire.. Horrible noise and flames shooting out from the bottom! don't think i'll ever buy anything Maytag again. Parents' had their Neptune dryer die even sooner--3 years! yet we replaced the WORKING 20 year old Kenmore with this Maytag POS--mostly because we wanted the air/cooler drying.

Warning, I have a Maytag Drying Center with the same problem, the problem is the heater element. Hold on to your hat, It is backordered till September 2008. If you can pull the element, you will probably see the coils burnt in two in at least one place. My Unit started this prior to the warranty running out but I did not take heed and really check it out till it TOTALLY quit heating. It is not the thermister!!! We tried that first! Good luck getting a replacement heater element. Bad design......on a side note make sure you clean out the lint area. Not just the lint screen but below that if you remove the front panel it looks like someone put insulation in that area. That needs to be cleaned out!!!!
