Maytag Neptune Dryer--Drying Problems

Hi, I have a 4 year old Maytag Neptune Dryer that has been working great until about a week ago. Now, when I dry towels, it stops operating. I use Sensor Dry and the dryer defaults to 99 minutes. However, it runs for about 3 hours and then it turns off without sounding the finished alarm...that's because the towels are still all wet. I end up having to run it again, and it ends up taking 6 ours to dry one load of towels. I have read about possible solutions to this, but no one has made mention of the turning off issue that I am having. For now, this problem is only related to towels...not sure the significance of that just yet. I'd love to hear any suggestions.

Currently the dryer is not drying clothes at a great rate of speed. The heat is on but it is not enough to dry the clothes in a timely manner. Please help me with a solution, I really enjoy the Maytag...


Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Maytag Neptune dryer timer won't stop


If the timer is not stopping as it goes around then it's for sure the timer. The timer does pretty much all the work with controlling the dryer. And if it's physically not stopping going around then it has broken.

My maytag neptune isnt drying the clothes after they have been in for an hour?? my husband and i have always taken good care of the set, its like 4 or 5 years old. does a part need to be replaced an if so...


Check the inside vent duct on the machine and also the external duct all the way to the outside wall. I'm sure you will find lint buildup that is hampering the dry cycle.

Problem with upper cabinent of Maytag Drying Center.


Mine did same thing within warranty. There is a motherboard problem in them that is cause by power surge during an eletrical storm. First try unplugging for 10 minutes and see if it resets. If that doesn't work, you need to have the motherboard replaced that runs the unit.

Repair man took the front off my unit and replaced entire motherboard. He stated that it was a known issue with that motherboard. I have had no problems since my motherboard was replaced 18 months ago.
