Maytag Neptune Dryer quits heating
« on: May 18, 2010, 08:51:02 PM »
Hi,

I have a Maytag Neptune MDG4000BWW gas dryer that will heat for about 5 minutes and then go cold.

I have not done any troubleshooting other than the vent appears to be clean and there is good air flow.

Anyone have any ideas on where to start?

Mike

While your in that fantastic machine, I would recommend a squirt of Turbine oil onto the rear drum rollers and your idler pulley to keep them running smoothly.  While your waiting for the coils, take a look at the service manual for your machine Here.

You should put a link to your tattoo topic in your sig line.
