    I bought a Model: 10187B on 6/28/2008 at Costco. all of a sudden it won't run on the medium speed. It only oscilates, but there is no air movement. The high and the low speed run well. Does any body have experienced the same thing?

"Most fan motors for fan over running have an internal overload. once it trips, it will not reset. it is a solid state device. it looks like a flat device or a small bullet device. if you've figured out how to take the fan apart, you could just remove the device and connect the two wires together and the fan will run. you won't have any protection on the motor however. the windings run warm, but if the bearings run dry the motor will slow down and the windings will get hot. this is the reason for the overlaod device - protection. its your call what you want to have."

When I open the fan I found one capacitor disconnected from the board, I only resoldered the cap and it works very good.

The heat on our tumble dryer does not appear to work but I am not sure how to detect if we are doing something wrong?


Hello Colin;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There are many different dryers with different electrical components.

You may have a hot air circulation problem. This is common where lint will block the air flow. You have a hot air distribution manifold, remove the manifold. At the smaller bottom is where the fan wheel discharges, this is where dryers usually plug up. The manifold is located where the hot air fan discharges air. Also, check the fan to make sure it is not plugged up and turns freely.

Needless to say unplug your unit first.

It could be a bad thermostat, and several other things.

If your unit is not plugged up with lint, please post again and provide a model number so I can see what you have

Something fell down in the lint vent. I didn't know it and turned it on. It made and awful noise and now it won't work.


That something is probablly now jammed in the blower fan. T o get to it you need to remove the front of the dryer and you will see the fan blades in the lower left corner. To do this: unplug the machine, open the door and remove the 2 screws that are located in the top of the hole. this will release the top of the machine, lift it up and then remove the 2 screws that are inside the front panal at the top 1 one on each side this will allow you to tilt the front panal outward and lift it off the 2 fingers that hold the bottom in, be carefull and don't yank on the wires that are connected to the door switches. look in the fan husing and recover whatever it was that you threw down there reverse the process for reassembly

My neptune dryer seems to be overheating. It's very hot to touch the outside unit and is heating up my laundry room. The vents are attached and the lint screen is clean. What is the problem?


Hi twokids90s

Check and clean if necessary your vent hose.
If you vent hose "seems" to be clean then,try running the dryer with the vent hose off and see if the dryer is not running hot anymore.
Make sure your lint screen is in place and has no tears or holes in it and is still firmly attached to the frame.
If you are running too hot you are not moving enough air thru the system.
It could be that the fan blade is plugged up.
The problem could be a large lint ball build up in the center of the fan or a sock,thin pants,a pen,etc. that has gotten into the fan by falling down the hole where the lint screen is normally inserted.
You have to find the air restriction to solve the problem.
It also can be a loose or worn out blower wheel/fan.
Please take time to rate me.

Hi, My maytag bravos dryer is one year and 2 months old. Suddenly it has stopped drying the clothes, it takes forever to dry a load and clothes are very warm and wet, lots of steam in the dryer, also the...


Sounds like the exhaust fan is not working. There's an electric blower at the back of the unit that forces air out through the exhaust vent. Unplug the unit, pull the vent off the back, and see if you can reach in and touch the fan blades and make them move. If it won't move something is probably caught in there. You may need to take off the back of the unit and remove the housing cover to the fan assembly in order to really tell what's going on, but it sounds like your fan has an obstruction. It could also be that the fan motor is fried but that seems less likely. Remember to have the unit unplugged, there's some dangerous voltage inside.

Dryer heats and turns but no air out the exhaust it is not pluged though


Check the lint screen first. If no luck there, it's possible that the fan discharge itself at the bottom of the dryer is plugged or that there is a problem with the exhaust fan itself. You may have to remove the back of the dryer and check the discharge pipe from the fan back to the fan unit. Turn off the gas first before you pull the dryer out and unplug the dryer.

If there is no lint blocking the air outlet path, I would next check two things: First, is the dryer in a small, closed room? If there is not enough space for air to get in to the dryer, it won't have good airflow through the clothes. Second, for older dryers, the blower fan may be loose on its shaft or, if the blower has its own separate motor, the blower motor might be dead. In order to find the blower fan, you'll have to be able to open up the dryer. Once you find the fan, see if it turns easily without moving the motor shaft -- if so, you need to replace the fan. Also, be sure there isn't anything blocking the blades of the fan.
