MDE5500AYW Maytag Neptune not Heating

Our Electric dryer is 5 years old and it has worked great until now. Everything works except that the Heat doesn't come on to dry the clothes, so it takes way too long to dry. Any hints, I have done everything the manual says to do. Still no luck! Any help is appreciated! Thanks, Chad

Sure I will help you when that happens that means that your heater core is no longer operating and when the heater core doesn't work when your dryer doesn't heat up anymore so that's your problem I hope I have helped you please leave a response or Stars if I have helped

SOURCE: Maytag neptune dryer won't start

Hey all neptune stricken owners - I removed the circuit board which was darkened substantially in the resistor area, but the maytag repairman got no money this time!! . . . And the cold is no longer the problem it has been for the past couple of years. We replaced the 3 main capacitors(blue) and the cluster of four resistors(brown) - and voila - the dryer works like new!!! It only cost a few bucks ($.67, $.92 etc etc) as opposed to the $151 a new board was going to cost!

All you need to do is check the element for continuity with an ohm meter, if it has continuity the element is good. The dryer also will run on 110 volts of power but it needs 220 volts too run the element, so check and make sure all the conections on your cord are secure and that you have 220 at your wall outlet.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune - everything works, not getting hot

My 2 yr old Maytag Neptune gas dryer mod # MDG9700AWW does not get hot. The gas is
on but the dryer does not light? Is their anything I should check before I call
for service? And if I must call for service who is reputable in the souther california area?
It's ironic that when I purchased the set I added insurance on the washer only thinking the
dryer would be pretty fail safe! HA..... This is the third time the dryer has failed on me yet
the washer is doing fine. Dont figure!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyhow Thanks for any help you can render?

Maytag Neptune MDE5500AYW panel lights work but not dryer


inside the control panel is a tech sheet that has some diagnostics on it . there is a membrane button test or something to that effect. I suspect that the start/pause button is the problem and you would need to replace the console w/touchpad.about $130-140 new. there are some used ones on ebay.

The lights on the dryer work it wont start it didnt have any problems drying before this happened no odors or smells i have a maytag MDE5500AYW. please help. thank u


If the display on the dryer reads '88' then place a heating pad over the display. After a few minutes, the '88' code will clear, and it will work fine. Sounds crazy, but works every time for me.

I have a MAYTAG MDE5500AYW drier that spins but doesn't heat up. Any recomendations?


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.
