Maytag Neptune Drying Center MCE8000AYW

I have a Maytag Neptune Drying Center MCE8000AYW. I am getting no heat when drying. There is no lint obstruction. I assume it is a heating element issue. How do I get to the heating element because it seems there are no panels to take off. What would be the typical cost for service on this vs. me doing it and how do I know for sure it is the heating element? Thank.

Email me a response to robert_fawbush@yahoo.com and I will be more than happy to provide you with parts breakdown illustrations and possible part numbers and locations to replace. The service amount verses the do-it yourself amount will be well worth the savings. Typical labor cost on appliances are 75.00 per hour and a mark up on the parts. If you feel you can do it yourself after getting the photos e-mailed to you, it will save you approx 200.00 if not a lil less or a lil more.

Please rate this solution "fix-ya" if it seems to satisfy your question.

All the lights are lighting up but when I hit thew start button i hear a click but nothing happens. Maytag Neptune Model# MCE8000AYW


If there's lint or a problem with the air passing thru and evacuating, the sensor within the system will not turn on the gas or energy to begin drying. Time for a service call.

Maytag MCG8000AWW gas dryer no heat


The ignitor may be bad you can chek to see if there is 110volts when the dryer is allin by unplugging the wire to the ignitor and putting using a multimeter to chek for voltage at the wires. If there is power to the ignitor and the ignitor is not glowing up then the ignitor is probably bad replace the ignitor.

Dryer makes noise like a bird chirpping.


You'll need to access inside the cabinet and oil the tires and belt pulley. Hope this helps!

Maytag Neptune DC Model# MCE8000AYW leaks water from the right side of drying center unit while using the "Wrinkle Release Hanging Dry Only" feature. The leak happens during the steam portion of the cycle....


Stop using the water bottle because the water is overflowing the heater steamer pan and will short the heating element and the part is no longer avaliable and the top will stop drying.
