Maytag neptune dryer will not go into service mode
Howto go into service / diagnostics mode instructions usually go something like this:Turn on power. Reset code "ts" on display by going into service mode. Press the Chime and Temperature keys for about 3 seconds or until you hear 3 beeps. Access the diagnostic codes by pressing the wrinkle prevent key. A "D" will be displayed. Press sensor dry and time keys for about 3 seconds to clear the code. Power off dryer to exit the service mode. Power on the dryer. Should be no error code.Our additions:- don't wait until the code appears to go into service mode- the "D" is a "d"- the "d" doesn't visually clear, but there is a chime that apparently tells you it's clear
Maytag drier lint screen will not go in all the way
I had this problem as well. I pulled the lint filter out and vacuumed everything and it still wouldn't go down. I made sure to clean all the 'tracks' around the edge of the filter, in case that was causing the problem. No luck. I stuck my fingers in and even pulled the interior cover off to get at whatever was holding it up and still NOTHING.
But then I found the problem! The handle where you reach in and pull the filter out has to go in behind the interior vent cover. You have to stick your head in the dryer to see that it's catching. One side of my 'handle' wasn't going behind but resting on top. I pulled out the filter and then I gently pushed on the plastic interior filter cover for a few seconds and then tried the filter again. I did it several times before I got the cover pushed enough so the handle was nesting behind the cover properly.
My theory is that when the lint accumulates it lifts the filter up. And when the filter doesn't get nested all the way, the plastic cover softens enough in the heat that it bends slightly in. After a while, it bends in enough to keep the filter sitting slightly above where it ought to be and you can't get it down in there. I am going to keep my filter space cleaned out regularly to make sure the filter always sits down in there properly. But regardless, I figured it out so I can fix it again if I have to.
