Nobody likes doing laundry at the best of times, and a technical problem with your Maytag Neptune dryer only makes matters worse. Before you pay for an out-of-warranty repair call-out, troubleshoot minor problems that prevent the dryer from starting. Problems with the electrical supply or the way the appliance is loaded can contribute to technical difficulties. Ruling out these situations is the first step toward fixing your appliance.
M/F Open the door and check that no clothes have fallen between the door and the body of the dryer. The drum won't spin until the door is completely closed, for safety reasons. Close the door firmly until it clicks and start the dryer a second time.
M/F Hold down the "Start/Pause" button to resume drying after opening the door to add more clothes. Or, select suitable options using the control panel and hold down the "Start/Pause" button to begin a cycle. "Air Dry" mode doesn't supply any heat.
M/F Push the dryer's plug into a three-prong electrical outlet. A loose connection at the outlet causes the dryer to stop working or work intermittently. Move the dryer closer to an outlet if you're using an extension cord. The voltage of the cord might not match that of the dryer.
M/F Check your home's breakers or fuses for signs of trouble. The breaker protecting the dryer's electrical circuit could have tripped during a power surge or electrical fault. Reset the breaker and try the dryer again. If your home uses fuses instead of breakers, swap out the fuse for a suitable alternative.
