Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
There is an automatic shut off switch (that is a fire preventative) that is malfuntioning. These switches go out and are a pretty common problem. These switches are located on the inside of the dryer and are usually in the rear of the assembly. Unless you are really good with electrical appliances I don't recommend repairing this yourself. Call a repairman and if you sound fairly savvy - example: Hi I am having a problem with my Model xxx Dryer. It seems like it's one of the overheat kill switches. How much will it cost to replace?I just don't have time to do it myself right now. Etc..Etc..Etc.. you probably won't get gouged for too high of a repair cost. A skilled dryer repairman knows this is a simple repair and takes about a half hour tops. There are actually three of these "kill switches" in a typical dryer. They are redundant so that if the dryer ever gets too hot it will shut off and prevent fire AND litigation. Once it is repaired you will be good too go for a good long time again(depending on the quality of the model, of course). Good Luck!!!
