Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
Ok, when I open the door to test the dryer switch, there is a button that the door pushes when it's closed and there is also a slot where the" male" part of the latch goes into the "female"part. The "male part being on the door and "female" attached to face of dryer. Do both have sensors or just the push button? Which when I push , seems to click.,
The female is the switch! you can pop the top off and check with electric tester on ohms, make sure you unplug the drye
check the breaker make sure you have 220 volts a in the outlet !

SOURCE: Maytag Epic dryer won't start
if it beeps it means that the keypad is sending a signal to the control board to start it but it doesn't. since the control board sends a signal to the motor to start the dryer to spin. does the dryer hum?

Sounds like you have something shorted out.
The element issue could be a contact fused shut.
With both problems I would be looking for wires melted together, or a relay/sequencer welded shut melted etc.
You do have a potential fire hazzard here. If after removing the panel you cannot locate the problem, do not run the unit.

looking at schematics looks like you main control board is the faulty part. you have done a very good job of tracing the voltages from the source. been that all voltages are present and door switch is good the part left is the control board. here is the part# 33002886. you can find it at sears website or service center.
good luck to you.
