Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer not working, has power but panel not lighting up

I have a Maytag Neptune MDE5500AYE dryer that I purchased in Nov 2003. It quit in the middle of drying a load. The dryer has power, because the interior light comes on when the door is opened, but the panel no longer lights up. Could the element be out, or is this something else?

My Maytag neptune dryer was tripping the circuit breaker. Then it just lost power and quit. What could cause this and how do I fix it.


This could be a bad breaker or a loose connection in the dryer plug/outlet. If the dryer just will not work at all and there is voltage at the dryer's outlet, then the dryer is defective. I would then suspect the motor as the culprit.

Maytag neptune dryer won't start has power lights will come on but ut won't run flashed PF before it quit


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

PF error code means power failure and is displayed when the circuit board also known as the electronic control board goes bad and needs a replacement. Before replacing the control you can also check the thermal fuse which is inside the rear panel on the blower wheel housing and replace if it reads no continuity. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Maytag Neptune MDE5500AYW panel lights work but not dryer


inside the control panel is a tech sheet that has some diagnostics on it . there is a membrane button test or something to that effect. I suspect that the start/pause button is the problem and you would need to replace the console w/touchpad.about $130-140 new. there are some used ones on ebay.

Neptune Dryer


My maytag neptune dryer quit heating, after my wife changed the temp setting on the console from regular, to extra low drying temperature. The heating element reads 10.5 ohms. The thermal cutoff reads 0.02 ohms. The hi-limit thermo reads 0.02 ohms. The power coming into the dryer is 240 volts. What can I check or need to replace.
