Maytag MDE5500AYW dryer

The control console comes on but when the start button is pressed, all you can hear is a sound like if the starter of a car is not getting enough juice.  On occasions after pressing the button many different times in a row, eventually the drum will run for a few minutes but then it shut off on its own.  Heat is being generated like normal.  What can I do?  Thank you,

If the motor is not running and it is heating, you need to replace the motor.

What causes start/pause button to work sporadically?


It sounds like the switch is getting bad, contacts in the switch no doubt have burned spots and it is hard to get a connection through burned spots. So I would say replacing the switch is in order.

Maytag dyer problems


it sounds like the control board is going bad but i wouldn't buy any parts for this dryer,soon you won't be able to get parts for it,put the money into a new dryer not to mention that the neptune products is what took maytag out and now whirlpool owns maytag.you could also have a problem with one of the connections or a bad wire in one of the connections and when you move the wires it's working again and this could be from the heat,after years the wires get brittle,you could buy the new board,put it in and if it's a wire you're back to square one,but from what you say it's either a wire in one of the connections or the board.good luck with your dryer.

Maytag Neptune MDE5500AYW panel lights work but not dryer


inside the control panel is a tech sheet that has some diagnostics on it . there is a membrane button test or something to that effect. I suspect that the start/pause button is the problem and you would need to replace the console w/touchpad.about $130-140 new. there are some used ones on ebay.

My Maytag dryer model number MDE5500AYW has lights on, but won't switch settings. It is stuck in time dry at 18 minutes. Yesterday it was on sensor dry 47 minutes. Do I need a new control board inside...


OK, your control board and LED are integrated, so you will need to just replace the control board. I would try a hard reset before replacing the board. Pull the plug or, shut down the appropriate breaker switch for 5 minutes. Re apply power after the 5 minutes are up. if you continue to experience this fault, replace the control board asap.

Maytag LDE313 Dryer drum won't start


Sure sounds like a winding problem. Initially when you press start and hear the dragging of the motor sound, this is the start winding going out. Part number is 303358 and your cost is around 120.00 in new or about 60 in good quality used. Good Luck in your decision. If I can help further, I am here...

Waiting to hear from you,
