Are you turning the motor directly or are you trying to turn it by rotating the drum? If you are trying to turn the drum it should be hard do turn due to the pulley and belt ratio.

You should not need to spin the motor by hand. Check if the belt is not to tight or the motor itself could be defective.

Maytag neptune dryer heats but wont tumble


When you spin it by hand, is there resistance? Can you hear the motor turning? In fact, when you switch it on and it starts to heat, can you hear the motor turning, or is it silent?

Sounds like the belt is broken, in which case there will be little resistance.

If there is resistance, it may be the motor or circuitry controlling the motor.

Problem with my maytag neptune mde7550 dryer will not go through any cycles by useing touch screen and will not switch off by touch screen


The only way possible to see if the touch pads are working is to test the voltage of the control pads when it contacts. The input of the Microprocessor should be checked for the pad control impulse to come in. If there is no trigger voltage to the mP this can be the control pad problem.
The mP must be checked for the working voltage and also the frequency oscillation at the crystal leads. If so the mP is working with a suspected control pads which are not able to set the program or timing.
There is no way but to remove the sticker pad and replace, One difficult way to have a chance is to remove the carbon sticker pads and check continuity , You can use a carbon pen to line the tracks so that the multi-meter reads a continuity. With this you can have a temporary fix

The voltage in my country is 230volts 50HZ I have a 120/240 volts maytag dryer what can i do to get it working


Normally the 240 volts rating is nominal and the device will run at 230 volts. The question is will the dryer run at 50 HZ? Check on the electrical rating tag on the machine. It may work. The motor may just spin at 50/60, 5/6 of the 60 HZ speed.

Maytag Neptune Gas Dryer will not spin when turned on. Drum spins by hand. Makes a buzzing noise and elecrtical (burning) smell. Dryer is unplugged now and vent is clear.

Dryer stopped spinning,timer still ticking,cannot get to restart.


Can you still hear the motor turning? If the motor is running but the drum is not then it is probably a broken belt or there may be something blocking the drum from spinning. The first thing to check is if the drum will turn by hand. If so, the next thing to check is if the belt has broken or slipped off. Although it is a bit cumbersome to replace, it is easy to diagnose. Unscrew the screws holding the back of the dryer on and pull the cover off. Look at the pulleys on the motor and see if the belt is intact. If those solutions don't do the trick, let me know and I will try to give you other options.
