Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
My maytag neptune dryer will not restart after the first load has dryed and a new load is immediately loaded. I have replaced the hose, cleaned the lint trap with soap and water, and blew out any lint from the screen trap to the rear of the machine. it makes a buzzing sound when you try to restart it and there is a smell of something burning, is it worth fixing or just buy a new dryer. thank you.
Your dryer needs a new motor. It should cost about $200-250 including labor. Call a local repairman - not a national company. Give him the model number and ask him to bring the motor with him.

If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Hope this helps...
