I have a stacked Maytag Neptune Washer Drier. Over the past several weeks it has been harder and harder to get it to regularly dry clothing and other items. I put them in, set it to automatic, and walk away. Sometimes when it finishes the clothes are dry, other times a bit damp, but often very wet still.
The drum is tumbling, but I don't always feel heat, even after the drier has been running for several mintues.
I've check the circuit breakers (read someplace that if one fails it will stop heating) but they're fine.
I have found that it SEEMS like if I change the "intensity" (regular, medium, delicate, air dry) before I start, then it dries better. Just flipping between settings a couple of times.
I have a Maytag MUG2000AWW stack drier that heats intermittently.
I opened mine up tonight and found that the connector to the gas valve doesn't seem to be making contact. It's on tight, but I can push on that connector while the gas ignition heater's hot and the valve clicks on. I'm off to the store for some terminals tomorrow to improvise a replacement.
Mj, 90% of the time long dry times are caused by a pinched or clogged vent. Other things that could be causing this are: cycling thermostat trips too soon, if your dryer is a gas model, weak gas valve coils, drive motor centrifugal switch not allowing voltage to the gas valve or heating element. Check the harness to the motor to make sure it is on tight. Catriver...post back.

I just recently purchased a used Maytag MLE2000AYW Stacked washer/dryer. The problem I am having is that the washer unit seems to turn on, the lights go on, fills with water, but doesn't not engage in the wash or spin cylce. There also seem to be a kind of intermittent spinning sound every five seconds or so when it is in the wash cylcle. Can anybody give me some ideas to troubleshoot for?
Had a simular problem. In my unit the water was not visible in the drum but you could hear it when you turned the drum by hand. The answer as told to me by the Maytag repair man: The machine is designed to hold the water after the cycle is complete. As he was replacing the boot seal he suggested to just leave the door open so the seal will dry out and not mold. This has been working for the past several years. No mold has appeared on the new boot seal.
From another source I read that the water is left in the machine for balance.
