Maytag Neptune electric dryer
« on: April 02, 2020, 04:50:49 PM »

 I recently was given an electric dryer Maytag model number MDE6800AYQ and s/n 158439466A . The numbers may be off a little but the model MDE6800 is correct. It appears the control panel may be a problem . The resistors  R53, 54, 55, and 56 are slightly discolored.  Checking this model it shows the panel as no longer available.. Is there an alternative panel available ?. Can anyone help on this item ?

If you can run a soldering iron, I would replace those resistors you mention. I am not familiar with the Neptune Dryer PCB but I am familiar with the Neptune washer PCB. There is a triac and resistor that often fails on those washer boards due to a faulty wax motor.

Resistors have no polarity so merely clip the old, remove the legs from the board and solder in new parts. The resistor color bands will tell you the resistor value and tolerance.
