Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

Open Question

I have a Maytag Neptune Dryer model MD5500 that will not run. Shows 8.8 on LED window when trying to start it. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, but no luck. I was able to fudge it for a couple months by pressing the Time Dry button for 41 min(if left it on the default time of 40 minutes, it wouldnt work either) and then once it started to spin, I would quickly change it to Sensor Dry mode which is what I always like to use. Now for some reason, I am unable to bypass it that way to make it work and only get the 8.8 message no matter what button I press. Can you help me? Suggestions?

Your motor has fried. It isn't in the Control Panel, the SENSES light wouldn't turn on if it were the CP. If you go to your closest Home Depot, ask the front desk for assistance with Dryer Motors. They will guide you through to get you the right one. They will even tell you how to install it. When you replace it with the new motor, the Dryer will work fine.

first, check the exhaust, make sure every inch of it is clean on the inside. if there is any blockage, the heat will build up in the exhaust and a sensor will shut down the heating element.

It sounds like you may need a new timer. Has water or anything gotten into the timer. This could be causing a short or faulty reading in it.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
