Hello all, My MDE7500AYW Maytag Neptune Dryer was working today and just quit. It is plugged in and the drum light works when the door is open, close the door and nothing. No LCD display, no...


looking at schematics looks like you main control board is the faulty part. you have done a very good job of tracing the voltages from the source. been that all voltages are present and door switch is good the part left is the control board. here is the part# 33002886. you can find it at sears website or service center.

good luck to you.

Dryer will not start, checked breaker okey. door closed, okey. Is there a fuse in this dryer


If you have a volt/ohm meter ck the voltage at the dryer there is an access panel where the cord goes into the dryer. You can buy a volt/ohm meter for 10 to 15 dollars at a local hdwr store its well worth it. It will come with instructions. make sure you have 220 on the two outside wires you will have 110 volts from the center wire (neutral) and each outside wire (L1 and L2 stands for leg one and leg two) If its good ck the door switch for continuity with the ohm meter. If this is good it i more than likely the motorswitch it is located on the motor beside the motor pulley it it usually a black plastic box with a multi wire connector. There is a fuse but it should only trip the heat not the motor itself. good luck

Dryer won't start, checked thermal fuses and start switch.


It sounds like you have been through most of the areas too look.

One thing to make sure of is that you have a full 240 volts. An electric dryer can measure 120 volts. from L1 to common and 120 volts from L2 to common but you also need to make sure you have 240 volts from L1 to L2 on the meter, one leg of the breaker or one of the two fuses could be blown.

If this is alright you only have a couple components left. The timer contacts and the drive motor. Either of these could be causing the issue.

To check the motor with the power disconnected check for continuity between switch terminal 5 and the Green(black) wire on the motor. If you have no continuity the motor is bad. Check for continuity between the terminal 6 and the yellow wire on the motor, if you have no continuity there the motor is bad. Check for continuity between terminal 1 and 2 on the motor if you you do not have continuity the motor is bad.

The timer should have continuity between the Yellow and Grey wire terminals for the motor to start.

I hope this helps

Maytag model PYE2300AYW won't do anything at all


Hi, Did you check the safety fuse on the right side of the heater housing? Little fuse with two white wires going to it?
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Dryer wont start


First I would check the door switch I could have broken off or quit working if that is ok then there is a white thermal fuse on the blower housing behind the back panel check with a ohms meter to see if it is good it has two wires going to it

MAYTAG PERFORMA ELECTRIC DRYER WONT START


Same thing as other owners above...Dryer is five years old and is in need of a good cleaning of lint build-up. Model no. PYET444AZW.
I put a large load of clothes, which probably should have been spun again, into the dryer. When I returned the clothes were still basically wet, and the light in the dryer would not come on, and nor would the dryer start.
Tested the circuit breaker. OK. Tested the outlet with a tester pen. OK.
So in searching the internet for a solution, I found and read this string. Found the fuse, called my local appliance parts store and bought a thermal fuse kit for CDN$48 (incl sales tax). Kit came with three fuses.
Just opening the top of the dryer was a chore for a complete novice. However, the entire top is hinged at the back -- so at the front of the machine, just gently poked a slot screwdriver in the gap ringing the sides near the top, twist screwdriver and lift. Big fuse is easily accessible at the top near the back of the drum. It's a round thing about the size of a quarter screwed into a metal frame with two crimped-on wires coming out the top. One screw to removed the frame. Then detached the crimped-on wires, and removed the fuse from the frame with two more screws. You will need a smaller size ratchet or nut-driver.
While you have it apart you might as well change the second nickel-size fuse, too, although it is more of a pain.
You have to remove the coiled elements, which are basically just big springs. They come out with one screw on the right and a little finesse. The second fuse sits on the right-hand side of the metal box surrounding the coiled element. The screw for the coil also held the frame for the fuse in place, but the frame will still be secured to the box with a couple of small tongues. So you will still need to kind of lift and pull up on the frame housing the fuse. It requires some patience and finesse. Remove the crimped-on wires, and change the fuse.
Of the two smaller replacement fuses that came with the kit, there was one marked for a gas dryer and another for electric. (The big fuse was good for both.)
Then start putting it all back together. Took me two hours in all. But now that I have done it once, it would hopefully take me only 30 mins. now.
Finally, my replacement instructions suggested cleaning out your machine and removing the lint and other burdens which probably overloaded the fuse in the first place. So I bought one of those specialized lint brushes to clean out the trap and the exhaust hose and vent.
