Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

No heat. My Maytag dryer works but does not generate any heat, and therefore does not dry the cloths. What part do you think is the problem?

Also you might want to turn off the breaker and back on it could be a missing leg as Tech 17 said if this is ok and the power at the plug is 220v then you will need to get inside the unit to see whats going on Do you have a electrical test meter??

Run the dryer for 2-5 minutes. Check to see if it has heat inside. If not, you have an internal problem.
If heat is generated, check your dryer lint trap. It must be clean before every dry cycle to dry properly and efficently. If the trap is clean and heat is generated, check the tubes behind the dryer for disposing of the lint.

Dryer heats up and tumbles but doesn't dry


This caused by one of two possible things. Either you have poor air flow, or a clogged vent preventing air from flowing freely and therefor making the dryer short cycle, which in turn will take you two or three times to dry yor clothes, or the heating element has gone bad, burnt in half and is making contact with the case to provide it just enough power to barely heat. The second thing is a very rare occurance. I would turn the dryer on, find out where the air vents out to, and with the dryer running, go to where it vents and check to see if there is a strong flow of air. 9 times out of 10 that is going to be your problem. Another way to check air flow is to just pull the vent off the back and let the dryer run and see if your clothes dry faster. If you do it that way and they still take a long time to dry, then you'll probably need to replace the heating element

The dryer wont heat up the clothes dont get dry everything eles works on it the drum turns ok the timer works also it just wont dry the clothes


Hello,Sam

The usual reason a dryer will heat yet not dry the clothes is going to be a air flow problem. What ya need to check is for a blocked vent and or lint build up in the blower assambly.

By far though a leading cause of that on Maytag dryers is a broken blower wheel and therefore no warm air is being drawnthrough the clothes,to check that remove the front panel and the front drum support and in the lower left corner will be the blower asm. check to see if it moves free and doesnt seem to be attached to the motor shaft.

No matter what settin the dryer is on my clothes will only get a little warm, but won't dry. It won't heat up as usual.Had a load in there for a few hours yesterday. They are still damp. When dry clothes...


You vent could be the problem. Snow blocking the vent can cause the dryer heat to shut down rapidly. Make sure your vent is open to the outside. Get some windex and clean them moisture sensors inside the machine. If a film developes on them then moisture cannot be detected by the control. It might think the clothes are dry and shut her down.
