I have a Maytag Nepune Washer and Dryer...I put in a load of towels earlier this evening, came back, the lights read "PR" and the clothes seemed to be in mid-cycle and half full of water...

and can I have the model number please!!!
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

it started running again and I'm afraid to pause it! the dryer, (i bought them together 8 yrs ago!) is a 5500(?) maybe I overloaded it? it said "PR" (i think) where it says "DO" (door open) when I'm loading it...

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 7 years ago.

Maytag make several differant models.

I still need dryer model number it should be right inside of door.


5500 is not a model number!!!
