Question about Maytag Neptune MCE8000AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My neptune dry has trouble starting. It makes a loud humming sound and then starts up. If you open the door and then try to restart it, it just hums. Someone to me it maybe the start switch or start relay on the motor, or the motor going bad?

Motor going bad is correct,it will get to the point where it will only humm because it is to weak to turn the motor-mike

Dryer makes loud humming noise but drum doesn't turn when I push start.


Check to see if the drum will turn by hand. If so, leave the door open but push the light switch button down and start the unit. Once you hear the humming sound, manually turn the drum with your hand to start. If the drum turns normally, you have a bad motor and needs to be replaced. If the drum does not turn, something is jamming the motor and needs to be disassembled and inspected.
Good luck

Making humming noise power not on door locked


turn off the unit.use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose this will remove all the water then you can turn it back on and should be able to open the door to get your clothes out.
after all thatis done you need to check the drain pump and make sure there is nothing blocking the pump.other likely problems are the door lock mechanism is bad or the main control board

It is your evaporator fan. When the door opens power is cut to the fan motor.

My neptune dryer sounds like it is going to start but then fails


sounds like a bad motor. when it hums when you push start, open the door. put a piece of tape on the door switch to hold it in. at the same time, push the start button and turn the tub with your other hand. if it starts, this only confirms it is a bad motor. the motor will need replaced. good luck. shane

My Mag neptune dryer shows HP and stops drying


Hi again mssunnybunny,
I just thought of something,
You did not give a lot of details so pose this question just in case!

You only said, Your Mag Neptune dryer shows HP and stops drying!!!!!!!!!!!

1.Does it go but not get hot and not drying??

2.Or does your dryer not go and then make a loud humming sound like it's trying to go??.

If # 2 is the description and this was the case, then you need
a new motor!

Loud humming noise as fridge is running


Sounds like the freezer fan is rubbing some wires or possible some foam insulation around the fan. I would look into the freezer compartment fan and go from there. The fan Will Shut off when you open the doors. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Thanks,
Bill
