Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
Have had dryer for about a year. Just recently it keeps tripping the breaker. When reset - a "PF" or "DO" flashes. What does this mean?
I have this same problem. I hired a professional to fix it because I'd already tried replacing the logic board and it wasn't the cause. He determined it was the control panel on the front. Apparently the design causes a substantial amount of humidity to get trapped in the laminated panel and short the controls. He ordered a replacement but they have been on backorder for over 2 months!

Pf = power failure
do= door open
the dryer is tripping the breaker because your house wiring is probly not up to snuff, or you have a bad breaker. nothing you are saying sounds like a dryer problem, but could be a big issue with house (could be very bad, could cause fire)

If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Hope this helps...
