Maytag Neptune Dryer - No heat in lower dryer
« on: February 08, 2013, 08:09:02 PM »
I have a Maytag Neptune dryer (with the hanging dryer compartment on top).  The hanging compartment has heat but the lower drum dryer does not.  Initial thought was heating element.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi,

The service manual can be downloaded here.
16022785 Maytag Neptune Drying Center (DC) Repair Service Manual

I have only ever worked on one of these and it's been a few years ago. Think I replaced the rollers if I remember correctly.

Don't think they made them for very long. I know from reading other topics the heating element, part # 31001666 and the restring coil kit, part # 31001746 are no longer available.

Check out the service manual and let us know what you find or if you have any other questions.

About how old is it?
