Question about Maytag MDE2600 Electric Dryer
We've had a Maytag Neptune electric dryer for the past 8 years. It is model MDE 4000AYW, serial number 31437690YW. We've had only minor problems with it until recently when it stopped shutting down after drying was completed. The timer justs cycles around and around and never stops. The only way to stop the dryer from working is to open the door and even then the timer keeps cycling around. Is this simply a situation where the timer needs to be replaced? If so, is that a do-it-yourself type repair or something we'll need to call for a repairman? Thanks, Ken.
If the timer is not stopping as it goes around then it's for sure the timer. The timer does pretty much all the work with controlling the dryer. And if it's physically not stopping going around then it has broken.

Here's a link to a great site to purchase the timer, there is a diagram of how the part goes into the machine also. Should be fairly simple to replace yourself.
