Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My Maytag Neptune stopped heating a couple of weeks ago so the repairman came out and replaced the thermostat. Two weeks later, it stops heating again. A new repairman came out and said it is the control panel. It works, but no heat and I pulled the top off and looked at the control panel and cannot see any problems with the board. Do you think this is truly what it is and is it possible to replace it myself? They want almost $200 for the part, not including labor! Thank you!

Maytag neptune dryer doesnt heat


On the housing the element mounts in is a couple of safetys The smaller one is rated for 300f and the bigger one is rated for 250f. If the smaller one is tripped obviously you replace them both, making sure the vent to outside is clear. Them fuses blow or trip because of air restrictions.

My Neptune dryer has stopped heating. Is there


Dryers are very simple. You probably just need a new heater element. Usually just remove the back panel, remove the element, take it to a appliance parts store, get a new one and install it. They don't cost very much maybe $20 or so...

No heat in the dryer. It is Maytag Neptune gas dryer about 9 years old. The drum rotates just fine but heat stopped a couple of days ago.


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

Maytag Neptune MAH-1 won't stop filling with water


A couple things may be going on here... you may not want to hear, but the Neptune has a had many "consumer related problems".

If your complaint is "will not stop filling with water" I would access your inlet water-valve (typically blue with 2 black battery looking solenoids; where your water-lines connect directly), test for continuity and replace as necessary. Sometimes inlet-water valves also go bad where the complaint is: "no water comes in at all".

Maytag Neptune on/off button wont stay on


You have to investigate where the burning smell came from. Start at the timer and then check the main board. Also check the drain pump.

Maytag Neptune W/D (Stacked) Drying Irregularly


Mj, 90% of the time long dry times are caused by a pinched or clogged vent. Other things that could be causing this are: cycling thermostat trips too soon, if your dryer is a gas model, weak gas valve coils, drive motor centrifugal switch not allowing voltage to the gas valve or heating element. Check the harness to the motor to make sure it is on tight. Catriver...post back.
