make sure push start switch is not stuck pushed in.Also sounds like the switch mounted on the motor could be stuck, which means new motor. Does motor start and stop with timer being moved to the off position ?.If so then not the motor.

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.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II gas dryer won't turn off.


Dryer Won't Stop Running
  • Ultimate Car II Dryers are fitted with a mechanical timer that sends an impulse to the control circuit board to stop running once the set amount of drying time has elapsed. This is because, should an electronic timer fail, this would necessitate the replacement of the entire circuit board. Confirm that the mechanical timer is indeed broken by opening the dryer's door. If the dryer stops, the circuit board is working fine and is not the problem. Simply slide off the protective faceplate of the dryer, unscrew the control board beneath, and flip it over. Connected to the back of the timer's knob should be a small round device with two wires running to the circuit board within the body of the dryer. Unscrew this device from the back of the knob and disconnect the wires. A replacement timer costs a few dollars and should screw into place without trouble. Reconnect the wires and put the dryer back together. It should work fine now.
  • If you need a new timer the best place ti get it is from Rough River Appliance Repair

Have plugged in new from box microwave is running when door closed and won't stop unless door open


There is a problem with the door switches or a ground short. I would suggest to return it or have the dealer look at the problem, not a big deal to repair, but does need to be corrected.
I hope this helps

Hello, welcome to FixYa. If you can provide the model number (usually on inside of door frame or tub frame around door opening) and make/brand name, I'll see what I can find for you. It does sound like a door switch, but I'll need to clarify the make & model before moving forward. Regards, Macmarkus :)
