Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
I have a 6 yr old maytag neptune dryer, it doesn't put out heat. I checked the voltage, 240 all the way. I found a broken ground wire at the heating coil, fixed that. Still no heat. What els can be wrong?
Warning! Shock Hazard! Disconnect dryer from power source before servicing.
I assume you repaired a wire that attaches to a white ceramic insulator terminal? If you have a volt-ohm meter, you can check continuity of the element and hi-limit thermostat and overtemp.fuse located on the element shroud. If you ddon't have access to a meter then visually inspect the element for a break in the coil. The fuse and hi-limit can be temporarily bypassed 1 at a time to eliminate 1 or the other being faulty. Also double check your heat temperature settings on the control panel to make sure it did not become de-selected. There are also temperature control thermostats attached to the blower housing in lower left corner of the dryer that can be temporarily bypassed to test for failure. Tip: Clean lint filter after each load. Clean vent to outside,(check every 3-6 months), and refrain from overloading dryer. This will help extend the life span of the element and the dryer itself.
Hope this helps!
