If its this type that screws on, go to the front of the motor
remove the belt and attach visegrip pliers, lay dryer on its front ,
remove panel down to blower and put your right hand fingers
inside the blades and snap the wheel to the RIGHT
Be careful you can get a bad cut from the wheel housing.
This is the way I do it all the time.

MDE5500AYW Maytag Neptune not heating. Heating Element, both high limit thermostats and thermal fuse have been replaced. What could be the problem?


Firstly, you have not mentioned that you have verified the presence of a power source of 240 volts, so make certain of that issue. If you have proper voltage, then the motor centrifugal switch could be at fault
Below is a link for trouble shooting your model.

Maytag neptune mde5500ayw chirping, buttons wont do anything. was told to replace control board. that did'nt help at all. any ideas?


The blower wheel on these tends to wallow out. That makes the dryer overheat and take twice as long to dry the clothes. Lint begins to build up in the filter housing. Finally the temp exceeds 350 and the round white fuse on the blower housing melts. Boom you has got a dead dryer. To get into the slopefront type dryer seems a bit intimidating bit really is not. Remove the door. The door is reverseable so 2 more screws opposide need to also be removed. Then the goalpost shaped front pops off. Then that reveals the top hold down straps. Remove them and top can be popped. Next you remove the front shroud the drum rides on. then get the drum out. Did I mention you do not work from the back at all on this model? Do not try to fix it in the wash room. Take it ouitside and put it on the picnic table or a tailgate to repair it. You will need a phillips head screwdrivers pliers 1/4 and 5/16 nutdriver and snapring pliers.
Shopvac to clean it up and probbaly a new fuse and blower wheel.

This brings us to the last problem could be the blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time.To check this grab the wheel and see if theres any play . But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you need to replace it. If you need diagrams or illustrations of your specific model you can also enter your model # there.

Dryer goes with 3-4 cycles to dry load of clothes


unplug the dryer.
Open the top lid.
Remove the front panel.
Inspect the blower wheel attached to the motor.
If it moves on the motor shaft replace it.
If iy does not move on the motor shaft, clean the lint out of the exhaust from the blower wheel to the rear of the dryer.

Cannot remove blower from motor shaft


It does unscrew although at times they do stick. I would find a flat spot on the motor shaft and get a crescent wrench on it and lodge it so it doesn't move and then grasp the blower wheel and turn to remove.
