Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I can't seem to get my clothes to come out of the dryer wrinkle free. With my old Maytag, I had a permanent press cycle, could put my clothes in, and before the dryer stopped, reach in - pull the clothes out, shake them, hang them up, and no ironing. I try to do the same with the Neptune but the clothes are always wrinkled.

Clothes coming out wrinkled after drying


Is the dryer heating? If so try using dryer sheets and allow a bit more on the timer, if the clothes are still damp..If the dryer is running properly I see no other way to solve this.

How do i use the dryer


my dear

Clean the lint filter or screen before each load.
Inspect washed items before placing them in the dryer. The dryer's heat will set in stains that have not been removed.
Shake each garment before transferring it from the washer to the dryer.
Choose a dryer cycle. Opt for the regular cycle if most of the load is all-cotton fabrics, or set it on permanent-press cycle if the load consists mostly of synthetic or permanent-press fabrics (a cool-down period prevents wrinkling).
Add a fabric softener sheet,
Remove the clothes once they're dry and hang them immediately...

I just got this HE dryer and the cloths aren't dry when the buzzer goes off. And the permanent press clothes are wrinkled... HELP! Plus it took almost 3 hours to dry sheets


It could have a faulty thermostat which shuts down to fast in drying mode, be sure and check that the vent is clear and not obstructed at all, thats the only way moisture has to leave the machine and dry the clothes

Following the permanent press cycle the dryer goes into wrinkle free mode. This mode seems to stay on for a long time. Is this normal? Thank you. Model #DV350AE


Wrinkle Free is designed to keep running so that unattended clothes do not wrinkle.
You can turn Wrinkle free off.

My dryer will not shut down or advance when it is in the Automatic Perm. Press mode. Diagnosed with faulty timer, replaced yesterday for ~$300 and the dryer ran all night long. Is there a "dryness sensor"...


I have found that the permanent press cycle will continue to roll the clothes around on a rest and dry schedule until you take the clothes out and manually shut off the dryer. The idea seems to be to keep the clothes from wrinkling when sitting in a still dryer. I think that this is the way it was meant to work, but I am no expert, just another owner of a Fisher Paykel dryer.

Everything comes out wrinkled


Check and see if your "cood down cycle" is working on your unit. If the clothes are cooled down while they are being tumbled, you have a fighting chance of folding them without them taking on permanent wrinkles. The clothes should only be lukewarm when they come out of the machine. (Dryer softener clothes might help some too.)

Maytag Dryer wrinkles my clothes.


I only know of one or two things that might help.
One make sure there is not too many clothes in the dryer.
Two, if you have a setting for permanet press use this.
Good luck.

Neptune dryer


I have the same problem, but I found that shaking the clothing articles out while they are wet before putting them in the dryer, releases the wrinkles before the drying cycle. They come out looking much better. You can also buy a dryer ball, they are balls with hard spikes, they take away static and also replace dryer sheets, they last up to 3 years. Buy them at any Wal-Mart or big retailer. Good Luck!

Maytag washer is a bit older its a Dependable Care model 3cycle


The agitation problem is probably caused by a bad timer. Also, on the wrinkling issue, be sure that your hoses are connected right (hot to hot, cold to cold). Have found out that if they are switched, you would wash in wrong temp. Doubt that a hose would cause problems because washer wont start unless the proper amount of water is in the tub (also could be a timer problem). Good Luck!!! Jim
