Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

5 Answers

Neptune Dryer I shut the door, pressed start and the dryer started for a second and stopped. Now the display is reading "8.8." This happened a long time ago and it eventually just reset because it started working. Now it won't reset. Any suggestions?

    I have exactly the same problem. What can we do?

  • Anonymous Jul 01, 2008

    I push start and the dryer just reads 8.8. I wait and it will start on its own, takes anywhere from 5 minutes to 12 hours. Tried unplugging it hitting start again but still just reads 8.8.

My maytag neptune dryer quit heating, after my wife changed the temp setting on the console from regular, to extra low drying temperature. The heating element reads 10.5 ohms. The thermal cutoff reads 0.02 ohms. The hi-limit thermo reads 0.02 ohms. The power coming into the dryer is 240 volts. What can I check or need to replace.

One of two things... 1) Replace the start switch! (thats the most common problem) 2)next to the start switch is a relay with four wires going to it(behind panel). replace only if start switch doesnt work AS THEY ARE EXPENSIVE!!!!! GOODLUCK!

Start button will click but won't start

Hello. Your model dryer has a service flash on the lower door strike/catch concerning not staying closed or not closing properly. If the door is allowed to open too much, the door switch will not be closed and the dryer won't run. The part number for the new kit is 279570 and it includes 2 door strikes and several catches. You choose the ones you need. However, if the door *is* closing properly, you can put the unit in diagnostic mode(door closed, all indicators off) by pressing/holding any button *except* stop for 2 seconds, then releasing, press/hold 2 sec, release, press/hold 2 seconds, release-- all the indicator lights will light for 5 seconds, and an 8 88 will be shown in the display. If there are *no* active fault codes, the indicators will momentarily turn off and then stay on with the 8 88 displayed. If there is an active fault code, it will be flashing in the display. (ex. would be an "F" and "xx" where "xx" would be a number.) If you press the same button you originally pressed once, then again, then again, the most recent code will be displayed, then the next, and so on up to 4 stored codes. To turn off diagnostic mode, just press stop. I hope this helps you!

I have a maytag neptune model mdg5500aww gas dryer. the light comes on but it wii not let me program it to start or stop what could be wrong? is there a way to troubleshoot

1) The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.
Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.
2) Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
it is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
3) Timer may be defective

Neptune mdg3000aww starts heating and runs fine but stops heating shortly after start up can restart heater starts again and shuts down

If the machine keeps running but just not heating you have a thermostat issue. It could be the operating therm. or the high temp limit therm malfunctioning, shutting off the element.

If the machine stops running completely, check the door switch.

Maytag Neptune dryer won't start/

I do not have that specific dryer but try these simple steps.
Maybe they will help you.
1. Shut the electric breaker off to the dryer for about 30 seconds and and back on.
2. Open the dryer door and inspect the switch that tells the dryer the door is closed. work it by hand just to make sure it is not stuck.
3. Spin the timer controls to another setting and see if the other setting will work.

That's all I've got for now...

Unplug the unit and take off the cover where the cord goes in. You may have one burnt wire under that cover.

Won't start. The start light flashes. Timer appears to be functioning.

You could have a couple of things going on that may cause your symptoms. First of all, unplug the dryer. If you can access the inside of the dryer check to see if the dryer belt is broken. On some dryer models if the dryer belt breaks a "broken belt relay" on the idler pulley near the motor will trip causing the motor to shut down. This is to prevent a broken belt from becoming wrapped around the motor shaft. Another possibility is a blown thermal fuse or thermal cut-out. Some dryer models have a thermal fuse mounted on the exhaust vent housing and is white in color. This should read a short. There should be a thermal cut-out mounted on the heating element housing as well. There will be a hi-limit thermostat mounted near it. The thermostat will have a resistance reading (can't remember exactly what it is), and the thermal cut-out should read a short. If the thermal c/o is bad, replace the hi-limit thermostat as well. Now if you have a thermal fuse or thermal cut-out problem, they generally blow for a reason. Check your dryer ducting for proper air flow and make sure its not clogged full of lint. Normally, a thermal problem is associated with your dryer overheating. Good luck and let me know if this helps.
