Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

Why would my older Maytag Neptune Electric dryer suddenly quit? Interior light comes on when door opened, but when I press start, it shudders but doesn't tumble or start?

I have checked fuse box. Looked on line, but I don't know which avenue to look further. Could it be tumbler related? The shudder/sound and int. light indicates power is fine? Please advise, thanks!

If thermal fuse ok you may have a problem with your interface board. Check thermal cut out, door switch and thermal fuse before suspecting board. Obviously need model to give you more accurate info.

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

SOURCE: Maytag Electric Dryer - Control panel doesn't light unless door is open

I fixed my own problem...I took the extra 4th wire(green) and attached it to the dryer body...There is a screw with the word ground stamped into the metal above it. This is right next to the panal where the cord goes into. I just unscrewed it and put my cable there and the dryer works perfect.....These things need to have a detailed diagram on the dryer....

Maytag Neptune dryer won't start/


I do not have that specific dryer but try these simple steps.
Maybe they will help you.
1. Shut the electric breaker off to the dryer for about 30 seconds and and back on.
2. Open the dryer door and inspect the switch that tells the dryer the door is closed. work it by hand just to make sure it is not stuck.
3. Spin the timer controls to another setting and see if the other setting will work.

That's all I've got for now...

My Maytag Neptune dryer suddenly quit working. The light comes on inside, but it won't start.


This could be several easy fixes. Check to see if the door switch is working if it is not clicking when pushed this could be the issue. try resetting the breaker, if it's not getting both legs of the 240v it won't start. or the start button could be defective. This is where I would start (and most of the time finish) looking. With some common tools and an ohm meter you should be able to find the problem.
