We own a Maytag Neptune Dryer Model No. MDG5500AWW and have already replaced the mother board. The dryer began beeping periodically and then it just won't start - controls are frozen but they do light up....

If you hear random beeping and a double beep sound when you are pressing a key it means that your problem is the keypad itself, not the board. The keypad on this model is the entire console (not a cheap part @ $200 but this was a very well built dryer so probably worth the repair). You most likely have one of the keys that is shorted out on the console that is causing all of your troubles.
Get yourself a new key-panel part number 33002536 and replace it and you should have your problems solved.
Good luck and please let me know if you have any other questions on this!!

Dryer will not start

If there is power at the start in those two places, check the voltage at the motor, some of these units have a thermal protector on them as well, they look like little round discs with two leads coming out of them. If you dont have continuity then its bad. Also its possible the motor windings are bad i would check the resistance on them as well. Let us know :-)
