My Maytag Neptune dryer doesn't stop unless I open the dryer door.

You will be needing to replace the timer assembly, which is the part that has all the wires attached and is found inside the top of the machine. It is what the dial is fastened to.
Be blessed.

When I press the start button, it hums but won't turn on, I hear clicking behind the cycle setting dial?

f you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.

Timer dial will not rotate automatically.

The timer (part number 8566184) is motor driven and can actually be heard buzzes or hums when it works. The symptom clearly indicates a stuck timer motor. Remove the control panel rear cover then check to make sure the timer motor wires are connected and that the connections are snug fit. Reseat the connections several times to clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the terminals and connectors. Replace the timer should there be no issue found with the connections and the timer still does not work.

Unscrew the faulty timer from the console bracket then secure the new timer in place. Disconnect the wires from the faulty timer terminals one at a time then connect it to the corresponding terminals of the new timer. This is to prevent messing up the wires upon connecting it to the new timer. Reinstall the console rear cover then its done.

Dryer Does Not Tumble When Pressing Start

Hi,First of all check your door switch, make sure it is operational.If the door switch checks good, the start switch could be faulty, in newer dryers the start switch is built into the timer in older dryers your start switch may be separate, if you have to push on the timer dial to start the dryer, its built into the timer.

Check any other safety's that may be stuck open.Double check anyway. If it wont do anything, I would say its the door switch or the start switch.
Thank you

I push the start button and the dryer makes a humming sound and the drum doesn't turn nor does the dryer turn on

Humming indicates motor is getting weak. If you look in the back compartment of your dryer you can probably see the belt. You can relieve the belt tension and then take the belt off the motor pulley. Once you do this, make sure the belt is out of the way and push the start button. If the motor turns it means it couldn't push the weight and is too weak to run. It make not turn without the belt on it either but you will hear if the sound is coming from the motor. In either case you need a new dryer or new motor if the dryer is pretty new.

Try the door switch and see if it clicks to activate. Also, make sure that the dial is always turned clockwise so as to not strip the teeth. Could be the timer .

Some days electric dryer works fine and others it won't start

If you can get to the timer, spray a good electronic contact cleaner inside while rotating the dial. Also check the door switch for solid mounting and sung wire connections.

I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.
