Dryer won't turn on
Model Number: MDE5500AYW Brand:
5 - 10 years
I have a maytag Neptune Dryer. For aprox. the last 6mos, the dryer has been beeping, turning "on" by is's self after I shut it off, (dryer doesn't actually run, but key board illuminates) and if I select "time dry", it automatically switches to "sensor dry" without pushing the button. I have done some trouble shooting, I am getting power to the dryer. I have checked continuity with a tester on the door switch, which appears to be working fine. I have also checked continuity on the thermal fuses,high limit t-stat, cycling t-stat,heater,sensor bars, all appear to check out o.k. I checked continuity thru the thermistor (p/n-6 3072080), which checked "no" continuity. I bypassed the sensor by hooking both wires together, made no difference, dryer still did not start, and as before, "start/pause light" flashes,"estimated time" window lights up, "sensor dry light" lights up, but by pushing "any" button on the control panel, nothing works.I cannot change cycles,change heat setting,etc. Am I looking at replacing the microprocessor control board?
