You should have your owner's manual on hand to locate specific parts and understand how to disassemble the dryer. Also make sure that the power is disconnected from the appliance before making any repairs.

1)Check the fuses near the heating element. Inspect them for breaks inside the fuse. Replace them if necessary.
2)Test the temperature switch with a volt-ohm meter. Set the meter to RX1 and zero it out. Touch the meter probes to each terminal on the switch. The reading should be zero. Next turn the switch on and test it again. Now the reading should show infinity. If the switch fails either test replace it with a new one.
3)Check the heating coil to see if it is bad. Use the volt-ohm meter and touch the probes to each of the heating coil terminals. If it reads zero, the heating coil needs to be replaced.

Hi,
When the dryer wont heat it is the thermal fuse that is bad, you can test it with a voltmeter before replacing. This fuse is located inside the rear panel and it cannot be reset.

Hope this will help...

Neptune glass front takes 4 hours to dry clothes.


make sure the vent system is clean. any restrictions can cause the safety switches to activate and turn off heaters. When it cools, the switch resets and starts heating. Unit will continue to cycle the heat off and on. Make sure all elements are working.
Start there.

Too long for clothes to dry.


Hi,
If you have plenty of heat and no drying you are not getting enough airflow. Try running if both with and without the vent hose connected to see if you have a blockage in the vent system. If not there the you may have a blockage inside the dryer itself. See how much air is coming out the vent it should be pretty forceful. Try vacuuming out everything you can get to from the front and back.
Let me know if I can help you further.

Electric Maytag Neptune Dryer not heating up.


If the dryer won't heat up, the problem is typically either a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is located just inside the back of the dryer on or near the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. The thermal fuse and heating element can be tested using an ohm meter or multimeter. These components should have continuity. If either does not, that component is faulty. There is no telling if the moving around of the machine caused the problem or if the timing of the problem was coincidental. Sure hope this helps ya and best wishes.
