Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

MAYTAG NEPTUNE GAS DRYER

I PRESS THE START BUTTON, THE CYCLE STARTS FOR A FRACTION OF A SECOND AND THEN SHUTS DOWN. I GET AN ERROR MESSAGE THAT SAYS THERE WAS A POWER FAILURE. AFTER RETRYING, I GET A MESSAGE THAT THE DRYER IS IN A DRY CYCLE AND TO CANCEL THAT CYCLE BY TURNING THE DRYER OFF AND SELECTING ANOTHER CYCLE. SOMETIMES THIS WORKS, BUT MORE OFTEN THE DRYER CONTINUES TO NOT START.

    Press start and drum tries to turn over, but stops. Error message is "88" for low voltage. We can get it to start eventually by pressing other cycle buttons, but the best fix seems to be to turn the drum by hand before closing the door and pressing the button. Seems to be worse in cold weather when the laundry room is colder.

    I am having the same error code. I have had this "expensive" dryer for less than a year. I have read on several sites that there is a problem with the control panel and will need to be replaced. Maytag is aware of the problem, but hopes that the warranty runs out prior to replacing it. The control panel is a 255.00 item. No more Maytag for me, I just need dry clothes. My 255.00 Hotpoint ran for 20 years with little problems. I think less is more!

Unplug the unit and take off the cover where the cord goes in. You may have one burnt wire under that cover.

Maytag Neptune gas dryer MDG4000AWW not heating properly.


Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

Maytag 5806 Gas Dryer starts and suddenly stops.


You may have a problem with a thermal overload sensor. Since it runs and then shuts off, this sounds like the problem.

Maytag Neptune MDE7500AYW - Won't start - Message says "A power failure..


I had the same problem. It turned out a power transformer in the neighborhood had gone bad. I found it by checking power at the receptacles in the house and we weren't getting proper voltage throughout the house. We had enough power in the house to power lights, the TV, coffee maker etc. but not enough for the dryer. I called the power company and they came out to do a check. At first they said there was a wiring problem with the house until all the neighbors started coming over after seeing their vehicle and saying they were having problems. So maybe you aren't getting proper power to the unit.

Good luck. Hope this fixes your problem.

My maytag neptune dryer quit heating, after my wife changed the temp setting on the console from regular, to extra low drying temperature. The heating element reads 10.5 ohms. The thermal cutoff reads 0.02 ohms. The hi-limit thermo reads 0.02 ohms. The power coming into the dryer is 240 volts. What can I check or need to replace.
