Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Our Neptune only blows super hot air. Which may sound good but it is ruining the clothes. It will not blow cooler air at all. Seems like this problem started more than a month ago. Is there an easy fix for this

Clean the lint out of all air passages including the exhaust hose to the outside. Wash the lint filter in hot water and detergent to clean away fabric softener deposits which block air flow. Make sure that nothing is obstructing the air intake for the machine. If the problem continues, the heater thermostat may need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Problem with heating up and staying heated.


Thermostat is sticking or heater core is blocked.do not keep running it or it is going to ruin the engine. It is running hot regardless if is blowing cool or hot air. Do not keep using the car.

My dryer keeps blowing the thermal fuse help


Check your lint filter, exhaust duct, and check if duct flapper is opening fully or not. Allow some time between loads and don't stuff too many clothes.

Mde4000ayw  It runs and hot air comes out the exhaust but clothes take for ever to dry. Help?


Sounds like you may have lint stoping up the vents it could still get some hot air out but not enough. Or maybe one side of the 220 power line has kicked the breaker or a burnt wire in the dryer.Check the outside vent it should be blowing as much air as coming out the dryer.

2003 Ford F250, the heater does not blow hot air


check the heater temp. control pot under the hood, inline on one of your heater hoses, it may be sticking causing hot water to only get to your heater core when the engine is at high r.p.m.s

Our dryer does not blow hot air? The cloths do not


more than likely the heating element has gone out. if your clothes have no heat then the element is the most likely cause. you can get one for anywhere between $30 - $50. you'll need to know model and serial #'s. usually easy to replace.

HOT AIR BLOWING INSIDE THE HOUSE


I know there are not that many sites--very few--that cover the informational guidance on the maintenance and technical difficulties of evaporative coolers, and so I feel compelled to share with you this very good, but rare, handyman site that does:

http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Home_Improvement_Zone_Cooling_Ventilation_Systems_Coolers.htm

As you'll see, the link above has a section dedicated to evaporative coolers.

As to your specific problem of your cooler's blowing hot air, yes, the humidity is listed as one of six (6) possible causes of this cooler problem. To find out whether the other five causes are applicable to your situation, here is the direct link to the diagnostic article on hot-blowing coolers:

http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Home_Improvement_Zone_Cooling_Ventilation_Systems_Coolers_Cooler_Does_Not_Blow_Cool_Air.htm

You should be able to review this article, and, one by one, determine what causes listed therein are not affecting your cooler in order to ultimately end up with one remaining listed cause that is the likeliest cause of your cooler's failure to blow cool air into your house.

This should help.

Good luck!

Again, if your model is one that can be used in cooler temps so as not to ice up, the heat prevents this.

Fan blows.. no cold air... no hot air exhaust blowing


This sounds like you either need to clean or replace the filter, but if the filter is some what new you might want to take a look at the coils just past the filter, if the coils do not have a shine to them then you might want to buy some coil cleaner (i found simple green or formula 50 works great), then you will have to spray the coils with the cleaner, let sit about 10-15 min, then give it a very good rinse with warm water. After that it should work like it is brand new. Enjoy!
