Question about Maytag Neptune MCE8000AY Electric Dryer

Top cabinet works fine, but dryer won't start when I push the start button. Repairman checked the thermal fuse and said it was fine and said it was the relay board assembly. Does this sound right?

Model 11-85862400: Check Lint Screen light blinking and will not start. Cleaned sensor and all bottom inside of dryer. Will not start.


Disconnect power and remove the two screws from the bottom flange of the toe panel then pull the panel down and off the cabinet.

Remove the screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint duct and remove the duct.

Remove the wires from the terminals of the thermal fuse then join them together and insulate the connection properly.

Reconnect power then press start. Replace the thermal fuse along with the thermistor if the dryer starts. The thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and if it is blown, power to the motor is terminated and will not run. No dryer function works when the motor doesn't run. The thermal fuse usually blows due to failed thermistor or blocked lint screen or vents. This is the reason the "Check lint screen." message flashes.

Disconnect power, if the dryer still doesn't start, then remove the top panel and check if the belt is still on. The belt activates the belt switch which is also wired in series with the motor and the thermal fuse. The motor will therefore not run if the drive belt is off and the belt switch is not activated.

Check the wire connections on the electronic control board. The electronic control board has indeed failed and needs to be replaced as what the Sears repairman said. The electronic control board is part number 8546219 and it costs about $180.

Dryer won't start, replaced start button


The push-to-start button is not, in most cases, the culprit. There is a thermal fuse on the blower housing and wired in series with the motor and if it blows, power to the motor is terminated and the motor cannot run. No dryer function works when the motor cannot run.

Disconnect power then access and bypass the thermal fuse on the blower housing. The blower housing is located on the front left bottom of the dryer cabinet if the dryer has the lint filter on the front or at the rear left bottom if the lint filter is located on the top of the cabinet.

Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate them properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards.

Let us know if the problem is not addressed above but indicate the exact model number of the machine for further advice.

My dryer won't turn on it works great but suddenly I can't turn it on. When I push the button to start there is nothing.


The dryer functions are all impaired if the motor doesn't run. The heating circuit is activated only when the motor runs because power to the heating element is routed through the motor centrifugal switch. The problem here is likely a blown thermal fuse because power to the motor is routed to it. The motor cannot therefore run if the thermal fuse is blown.

Disconnect power then access and bypass the thermal fuse on the blower housing. The blower housing is located on the front left bottom of the dryer cabinet if the dryer has the lint filter on the front or at the rear left bottom if the lint filter is located on the top of the cabinet.

My GGQ 9800 gas dryer won't start. It was working


Hi,
Things to check first on a no start dryer.
Check for power at outlet.
Inspect power cord.
When you try to turn it on do you hear anything?
Check the door switch(does it click when pressed in?)
The next item to check and most likely replace on a completely dead dryer with power and a good door switch would be the thermal fuse located inside the cabinet.
Please let me know if I can help with anything else
