SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Dryer humming but not running

This sounds like the motor is siezed or burned out. I wish I knew how much a motor is, but the Neptune is a good dryer so it would probably be worth it to get a new motor if indeed that's the problem.

SOURCE: Maytag dryer [electric] MED9600 lights up but won't start

Possible causes for your issue include:

Blown fuse
Timer or motor inoperative
Housing wiring not properly connected to dryer
Bad door switch
Faulty "Push to Start" switch

It would probably be best to have a professional pinpoint the exact defect.

Sounds like the belt that rotates the drum may be slipping. Does your drum turn ok when no clothes are in it? If you have to start it by hand and then it rotates ok chances are you need more belt tension.

SOURCE: Maytag Dryer won't start withouth me turning the drum.

Good day. Ugly problem.
My first choice would have been the motor, but.......
Here is the process, it might help you.
The power to the motor goes first to and thru the door switch. It then returns to the timer.
When the timer is turned to any running position, power leaves the timer where it is split into 2 leads.

One of the power leads goes directly to the centrifugal switch Which is the switch on the motor with all the wires. If you spin the drum, you also spin the motor, and if spun fast enough will close the contacts on the cetrifugal switch, thus sending power to the motor, allowing it to run. I guess you have done that.

The second lead out of the timer goes to the push to start switch, it then leaves and goes to the centrifugal switch but on the power side, so it is directly connected to the main winding in the motor.
That is why when you press the press to start switch, the motor runs, and if held in it will continue to run.
In fact, at this point, the motor had 2 sources of power, either of which can run the motor.
Thus releasing the push to start switch doesn't matter, since it runs off the other source.

Possibilities.
The centrifugal switch is not wired right. Please recheck. (or the motor was bad out of the box. Happens).
The push to start switch is bad, and needs replaced.
Or, the wiring going to or leaving the push to start switch has broken or making a bad connection.
Lastley, I said the power comes out of the timer and splits into 2 circuits. Not always true, in some models the timer sends 2 seperate wires out carrying the power, with the possibility the timer could be bad.

Hope this helps.
and thank for using FixYa

SOURCE: Gas Dryer only runs burner once after starting, why

Lets see, you have power to the gas assembly so the fuse is good and the ignitor will fire up. But she won't fire off again. The flame sensor is working because the ignitor is coming on and off. That means the control thermostat is working so everything is working. So what's the problem. Simple.933a1bb.jpg The solenoid coils heat up and quit on these machines with a little age. Very difficult to diagnose unless you know the trick.

If there's lint or a problem with the air passing thru and evacuating, the sensor within the system will not turn on the gas or energy to begin drying. Time for a service call.

Maytag Neptune Drying Center MCE8000AYW


Email me a response to robert_fawbush@yahoo.com and I will be more than happy to provide you with parts breakdown illustrations and possible part numbers and locations to replace. The service amount verses the do-it yourself amount will be well worth the savings. Typical labor cost on appliances are 75.00 per hour and a mark up on the parts. If you feel you can do it yourself after getting the photos e-mailed to you, it will save you approx 200.00 if not a lil less or a lil more.

Please rate this solution "fix-ya" if it seems to satisfy your question.
