Question about Maytag Neptune MDE7500AY Electric Dryer

Replacing heating element

I called Lowes because that is where we got it from. They shipped me some cube looking part which I really suspect is some sort of relay and not the heating element I asked for. Even if I do get the right part I can find no information on how to actually replace the heating element. Our last dryer was simple. It was so old it said "Fridgidare, a product of General Motors" on the front. This... seems a bit more complicated but still all I need to do is replace the heating element. What should it look like and where can I find information on how to actually replace it.

The heating element is actually inside that steel tube.......I work for an Appliance Parts Company and there is not many differant types of heating elements.....the one that goes into that steel tube can be seen here http://appliancepartsonline.net/index.php?target=products&product_id=305

If you give me the model number and make of the unit, I can look it up for you to see which one is the right heating Element for your particular unit....

Hi NoNicky. I do not own a Maytag, but did find information about it on a couple of sites I've used before for my Kenmore. I'll include an image that should be for your model (they list MDE7500AYQ and MDE7500AYW). There are also details on the steps needed to gain access to the dryer and a diagram of the heating subsystem. Kenneth P.

I have replaced water filter and reset the fridge to just water no ice but its still making ice cubes, but the light is on on the water only. How do I sort it out please.


Hello Carol Eastley,

Sharing your MAKE and MODEL number with
us would enable a beginning for an answer...


ELSE ...
you could look up your refrigerator on
manualslib.com and READ your instruction
manual (owners) from there (or typically
download a PDF image


Just a thought
(if you are really adverse to identifying
your MAKE & MODEL).

What dose a relay look like


Most relays are little plug-in plastic cubes, about the size of ice-cubes. Serveral of them are located with the fuses, but there are others in other locations.

Turn blower on (heat or a/c) and headlights turn off..


Eesh, I don't know... tough to troubleshoot things like this over the internet. It's something you really need to be able to poke around with a multimeter to fix. I'd say look for commonalities in the two circuits... fuses and relays, perhaps? Otherwise it probably means chasing wires for a short of some sort. One other possibility - the blower motor may just be sucking an obscene amount of amps, or your alternator may be weak, starving your headlights of juice. Do they turn off or just get really really dim? You may need to stand outside looking at the headlights while someone else turns on the blower motor on to determine this. Good luck!

It is smoking. Could this be the magnatron or is my microwave toast?


It really depends why it is smoking.
I, due to the model number, suspect the invertor board, but it could be all sorts.
Call an aproved engineer and get it checked.

I bought by 25 MSSA, Model ED5vHEXV001 at Lowes less than a year ago. I travel for extended periods of time an unplug the frig., open the doors. When I returned recently the frig compressor would not...


Could be a relay switch, needs to be troubleshooted to find out problem, but if under one year old it is still under warranty. Call lowes they will get a service tech out to repair it for you.

A clunking sound like ice cubes dropping. No ice maker in fridge.


there is a damper door assy that allows the cold from the freezer to the refrigerator,this may be sticking from shipping foam or tape that has never been removed from shipping, the install team almost allways rush and never really install correctly no do they explain how to use and care for the appliance, so check these things. in addition there is a know issue of the refrigerant lines having a slight restriction in them thus causing a autable sound coming from the evaporator and capillary line,this is located in the frezzer and will sound like its coming from all over. call bake the service co. & have them remove & reinstall the evaporator.

Whirlpool water heater, thermocouple went bad. Gas control valve is left hand thread, while new thermocouple is right hand thread


They make a adapter you can buy at lowes to switch the thread pattern for thermocouples. If you can't find it post me back and I will try to find another location you can get it at.
