Start button energise a relay that latches open and provdes the current path for the very heavy draw of heaters, and motor.
the relay is dead, or dying and instead of locking open is fluttering like a doorbell (buzz buzz).
Not a repairable item, it is replaceable and not very expensive, much less than a new dryer, last one purchased was $29.99
Relays are common to many dryers, the local parts guy will have one to match if you take the dead one.
typical relay looks something like this, not all are transparent

Door lock won`t engage


Hi - I understand that the door won't engaged, however does it show any other symptoms? Try to start a drain spin cycle and let the unit run for approximately 5-7 minutes and press cancel once. If the door opens immediately, unit made have a bad door lock. If you have to wait for the door to release to open, then possibly you have a control or wiring issue.

I have a Maytag LSE1000. The dryer and washer each have an issue at the moment. The dryer intermittently won't engage when it is turned in. When you press the "regular" button to start it,...


I really have NO idea what's causing your Maytags to misbehave, BUT I can tell you that the Maytag service centers have always been very accommodating when I've called about problems with dishwashers, dryers, and washing machines.They have explained the construction of the appliance and even told me the type of tools I needed to make repairs! If you still have your owner's manual, the toll free number should be in there. I hope this helps!

I have a whirlpool washer, model lsr7010pq1, and it won't spin on spin cycle. If I give it a spin by hand it will work. Agitation works fine, and the motor is running fine on spin. Could this be a belt...


when it gets to spin try to open and close the lid and see if it engages spin. if so the timer may not be pausing right before spin to allow the gear to drop and engage the spin cycle. it can also be a clutch or trans issue.you have to sit there through rinse and see if it pauses for a second a few seconds after it starts to drain if not it may be the timer which is common if its not pausing
