WHY DOES MY NEPTUNE MATAG DRYER MDE5500AYW NOT HEAT ...AND WHERE ARE THE THERMAL SWITCH, HI LIMIT THERMOSTAT, AND HEATING ELEMENT?


All those parts are in the bottom front. TURN off the power! then open the front door and remove the 4 screw's, 2 on the hindges and 2 on the other side. Then you can close the door, and pull from the top edges of the front panel(sometimes you need a thin screw driver to free the front) the front panel will tilt forward and then you can lift it off. You will need a Ohm meter to check those parts for continuity. Make sure you remove the wires from the part you are testing.

We have a Maytag Neptune mde5500ayw electric dryer, with a three prong cord. Our new house has a four pronged outlet. I purchased the correct 4-prong cord, but need to know the proper way to wire it into...


Hello,



It seems to get confusing where the wires go in the back where the cord connects to on your brand new,or previously dryer that you have brought to a home thats new to you

4 wires goes as such with oldtech2332.jpgthe red wire going on the right side,the black wire going on the left,the white wire goes on the center terminal. Now what exactly do you do with the green wires is what your asking yourself. It goes onto the cabinet after removing that little link that went from the center terminal that was beweeen the cabinet and and the white wire terminal.Yes remove that link and install the green wire where that link was just attached to a minute ago.

yes,hook up the black with the black the white with the white and the red where the blue was,now the green is just a ground wire,all you have to do is connect it anywhere to the metal frame of the machine just to ground it,look around there should be a screw somewhere near the other wire connections if not remove any screw and connect it and it will be fine.

Okay have you replaced the wire with with the correct one? If the wire gauge is wrong it will do every time next you need a volt meter with a buzzer sound maker on it test your thermostat and hi limit thermostat if it makes a noise when testing its working. Only thing that would cause that wire to keep burning are those options and if all checks out okay then its faulty wiring which is grounding out somewhere which is a pain to trace and if you might not find the bad wire had a few of these with these problems and I ended up junking them big fire hazard sorry for the problem.

How to remove the front panel of a maytag neptune gas dryer


Removal of the front panel requires the removal of the top cover and the console. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the 2 screws attaching the top cover to the rear of the dryer then slide it rearward to clear the screw head from the top cover flange and lift the cover off the dryer cabinet.

Remove the screws securing the heater PCB board and disconnect the black and white wiring harness connectors from the board.

Remove the four screws attaching the console to the washer cabinet and rotate the console down to remove it from the dryer.

Remove the four screws attaching the top of the front panel to the cabinet and the two screws at the bottom of the door opening.

Pull the front panel forward and disconnect the interior light wiring harness then lift the front panel off the tabs across the bottom and move it away from the dryer.

Reinstall the front panel, the console, and the top cover in reverse of the removal steps.

My neptune dryer has an interior 'fin' that is loose (mde5500ayw)


There are screws holding the fins on the outside of the drum. To get to them:
  • remove door
  • remove screws on the opposite side of the door screws (which would hold the door if it would open to the opposite side)
  • pull the top of the front panel, which was held by those screws outwards
  • remove the front panel. You'll see brackets holding the top of the dryer in place. Remove screws holding those brackets.
  • lift the top.
Good luck
