It might be the thermal cutoff switch. You could go online to see where it is located for that model dryer and have that tested.

Generally operation when cold that worsens with use indicates a component that is failing when hot. Start at the burner with the coils and work your way back to relays on the control. Sounds a lot like a bad coil on the burner. I have seen these do 2 complete loads then fail. Setting over night and cooling off will work again the same way. Intermittent conditions are a real challenge sometimes.

Check lint filter. Check blockages in the exhaust hose. Check that the flap outside your wall is not blocked and that the slats or flap opens OK. To get fast drying you have to have a good airflow into the drum and out of it.

a bearing in the back for your drum sounds like what you describe. It needs to be taken apart and the bearing lubricated with high temp grease

If the motor runs, but the drum doesn't rotate, check the belt, part # 341241. It's probably broken and off of the drum.

Have you had a power surge or power go out when the machine was running-----electronics go coo coo when this happens---it may be resolved by unplugging the dryer for a couple of days---then plug it back in & see if it does it again----another issue if the electronics get wet some how roof leak spilled water/fluid--hose replaced on washer which is usually next to the dryer---also check your owners manual to see if this is an issue do to a malfunction of electronics sending a code to check for an issue--that's all I dream up for now--sorry I couldn't do better

The thermostat may have sensed the heating element getting to hot. Or may have sense electrical fire and tripped the dryer out... I would check the thermostat in the dryer first that is hooked directly to the heating element. Let me know.

The relay for the motor is stuck closed on the control card. Get a new board from local supplier.

Maytag Neptune... | Answered on Mar 08, 2015

Go to Partselect.com. they will ask for model number and serial number of your dryer. They have every single little part for appliances but better yet they have video's on how to make the repairs. They also have schematics for every conceivable appliance made. the prices are very reasonable and the customer service is top notch!

Maytag Neptune... | Answered on Mar 05, 2015

I could be all wet with this but have you check the switch on the door see if it's stuck----also the answers given before are good replies----do you have a schematic?----you've replaced the mother board so depending that's not faulty it should work or you've eliminate one issue---what ever sequence follows the events that start the dryer----by more info--- is the drum turning??----is it turning and your getting no heat----another issue which may or may not be the case is polarity via house wiring----have you had any recent issues with your wiring----wire changing and or service entrance---utility pole replacement----storms---lightning---these are things that can drive electronics nuts with out knowing it---this is all I can think of at the moment---get back to me with more info if you can
