Maytag neptune dryer wont restart mde 3000 aya

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.

    my md 3000 gas dryer would not start after having just run a load as well. There was a slight electrical 'odor' when pushing the start button and a slight buzz. Is it worth checking lint blockage on exhaust. The last posting indicated they did it but it did not resolve. IS it a possibility.Is there a blockage detector that will defeat the on switch?

    Dryer lint hose came off. Cleaned and reattached. Tried to restart dryer but it just beeps. Ran the diagnostic code test and it came up as 39.

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.

Good luck!

Dryer won't heat maytag neptune mde 5500 ayw


Hi


If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-

Electric Dryer---

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...

Can't figure out how to get the top off


http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php This one looks like a real puzzle. Open the door and look for screws holding the front on, the top seems to lift up once something is released.
