My Maytag mde5500ayw runs sometimes but then it will quit

Customer Question

My Maytag mde5500ayw runs sometimes but then it will quit and do nothing. I can't even clear the screen. Then it will beep continuously. Maybe a heat sensor or something? What do you think?

I am stumped on this one, I will opt out, I have an idea, but not sure, and do not want you to spend the money for the repair if I am not correct, I will see if another expert may have a better idea on what is happening..

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I see the last person has opted out of your question!

My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

After reading the post .You have a main control that had an error in the software. the main control works fine after you unplug it ,you are actually rebooting the error out of the control board that is why it works then stops again .

You need to replace the main control board.

But unfortunately the part is no longer available from the manufacturer.

It is a part number of 33003028

I have checked the three largest parts dealers in the u.s. and they all are showing the part is no longer available .

But the is good news there are companies in the U.S. that will take your control board and rebuild it for you and even give you a warranty on their work .

here is a link to one of those companies with your part number already pulled up .

If you have any questions just reply back to me!
