    Neptune Dryer Stopped Heating M/N MDG4000BWW
    Hi, Please Help! My girlfriends dryer stopped heating suddenly. It's a Maytag Neptune Model MDG4000BWW. There is no heat whatsoever. I am hoping there is something inherent with this model that I can start with. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    First, you must remove the front panel. Open the door and remove 2 screws on each side of the opening; 2 in the door hinges and 2 directly opposite from them. Then close and latch the door and pull on the top corners of the panel and it pivots down, then lift off the bottom brackets. Then start the dryer (making sure it's not set for air fluff or no heat) and watch the ignitor to the left side of the burner tube. Report back if it glows or not. Also you might include the first two numbers of the serial number so I can make sure we're talking about the same series machine.
