Question about Maytag MDE2600 Electric Dryer

Maytag Neptune dryer timer won't stop

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.

    Thanks for the feedback and link on how to replace the timer. However, I would first like confirmation that from my problem description it is clear that the problem solution is indeed to replace the timer.

    Thanks to both of you for promptly commenting on my Maytag Neptune dryer timer problem and the solution. Ken

    My replacement timer switch arrived yesterday so I'm now ready to replace the defective timer switch on our Maytag MDE2600 electric dryer. What is the proper way to get access to the timer switch to remove and replace it? Is it nothing more than disconnect power and remove the four screws on the back of the panel?

    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.

    The timer does all the thinking in a conventional dryer, it controls the motor, fan, and element. There are no other circuit boards in your dryer. There is no doubt that if your timer doesn't stop that this is caused by the timer and nothing else.

    Yes, remove those four screen and the panel and you will clearly see what you need to do to get the timer out. You will have to pull the knob off the front or course.

    You can also ask them the service manual, if you want to do the job by yourself it may be useful.

    It is not a very difficult job, particularly if you replace the whole panel. Remember safety rules and work with power unplugged, possibly get the service manual and follow instructions and wiring diagram.

My maytag neptune MDE5500AYW will not stop unless it is unplugged


if you have it on time dry and it counts down but won't shut off you most likely have a bad computer board,part number 33003028 and it's around 180 dollars.on older machines it would be a problem with the timer not going to off but you have a computer board in your machine and it takes the place of the timer and other functions,just about everything runs through the computer board.

My Maytag Neptune Dryer (MDE4000) won't stop. The timer advances right past the "Off" position and keeps on going around and around until we open the door to stop it. The dryer gets very hot.

Can't figure out how to get the top off

Timer runs continuously - Does not stop at all


There should be a timer motor on the timer. That is most likely burnt out and will cause the timer to not shut down. Just replace the timer and that will solve the problem

Maytag neptune dryer wont restart mde 3000 aya


Your dryer needs a new motor. It should cost about $200-250 including labor. Call a local repairman - not a national company. Give him the model number and ask him to bring the motor with him.

Good luck!
