Maytag Neptune Electric Dryer
« on: July 27, 2011, 09:21:30 AM »
Maytag Neptune electric dryer only gets slightly warm, it won't heat. I checked the breaker panel, the dryer plug and made sure the vent was not plugged. What do I do next?  

Model MDE4000AYW

To JJWebster:

Can you tell me how to take the dryer apart to get to the blower and also how to get to the thermostats and thermal fuse?

I would take it outside and sit it on a table or tailgate. You work from the front only on this dryer. First ya take the door off. Then on the opposite side of the hinges is more screws for door reverse. Get em out also. Then the goalpost shaped front pops off exposing the hooks that hold the top down. Then ya can remove the shroud.
And then you can get to the idler to get out the drum and clean that puppy out.
One of these days somebody gonna brang me one of these and I am gonna take some pix.
