Power is on but won't turn on
There is a safety fuse that blows and nothing will work. Check that your venting is clear and replace. If you don't know which one to replace call a technician. It's 240v you don't want to mess around.

Maytag Bravos XL MCT will not start, light is
If the vent output is clear and lint trap is clear, then there are a couple of more hidden spots that air can get backed up.
First off, unplug the dryer before doing any of this. There's a lot of current to that plug, and getting killed is a really bad way to detect a bad wire or to identify where the heater coil inlet is.
- Inlet to the heater area. Laundry rooms have lint in them. All the air that gets blown out the back has to come from somewhere. make sure you don't have a clump o dust bunnies on another section of the rear panel.
- The blower motor itself. The lint filter can't get everything. The first time I took the back off my old Kenmore and opened up that area after the lint trap, it was like looking at a chalkboard eraser. Solid lint. The fins in the blower were packed tight with more lint. Cleaned it all out, and it ran better than it had in years.
- If the wall/floor connector for the vent hose goes anywhere but straight through the wall to outside, look down the hose and clear what you can, then go outside to the outlet and make sure it's not blocked, jammed, frozen shut, or what have you. Clean what you can from that end too.
Hope this helps!

All lights are on. Dryer will not start when start button is pushed. Why will the dryer not start?
Electric dryer no start does nothing
Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.
CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.
NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.
If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings
Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.
Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.
Hey GOD IS GOOD !!!!
