Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
My neptune dryer control pannel wont cut on but the light to the dryer is on. Also when the dryer does cut it it reads power failure and you have to pust the start butter 50 times before the dryer will start
We are having the same problem. We have the Neptune dryer MDE5500AYZ. The control panel doesn't come on. We know it's getting electricity as the light in the dryer is on. Is there a reset button in the dryer?

Guys im a service tech in a metro area. iam currently having this same issue with the mde6800 neptune dryer. i have swapped out the board and it did not work. im getting a second board as i may have gotten a faulty one. i do believe that the thermistor is possibly causing an issue, but ive yet to confirm that also the door switch can be a problem area where it can not be making good contacts when engaged. have any of you had recent power failure or lightning storms? common cause of board faliures in appliances. something for you to look into. also with a milti-meter you can check for continuity of the thermistats and thermal fuses.

Neptune dryer MDE7500AYQ problems for several months. Symptoms: difficult to start (seemed to need to warm-up before it would turn over), screen flashing when door first opened, power failure error messages, left side of screen faded (seemingly from excess heat), custom program cycles deleted from memory, beeping when start function failed, screen flashing during cool down after use, and eventually the controls died completely... but the lamp inside the chamber burns on.
Service Tech advised replacement of below parts: Control Board (33002886), Control Panel (22003241) and Heater Relay (306199).

Its the control board causing p.f. and all other problems , replace the board and you will have fixed your neptune. replacement boards are usually revamped meaning less bugs and better chances at longevity but these are priced high as a part for a lexus would be.

I have a maytag Neptune dryer mde5500ayw. We had a very short power outage, and my dryer stopped working, the light in the drum would light up but no control panel lights. I changed out the control board, and no luck. The old panel did have ,what looked like burnt resisters on it. I had a professonal come out and look at my dryer. He tested the power going to the dryer and said the dryer was fine, just not enouh power getting to the dryer. He said the control panel did go bad in the power outage, but when it did it also took out the circuit breaker in my breaker box. I changed out the breaker for the dyer in the fuse box on the outside of the house and now the dryer works like new!!
