Maytag mde4000ayw won't start. moisture monitor


This is either your start switch or your motor that is bad. I would suggest you begin with the start switch. We love Maytag appliances and we also love the moisture monitor on this model of dryer.

Just contact us at:

http://www.fixya.com/repair/d499389-accurate_appliance_repair_service and we will get the correct switch out to you asap.
We look forward to working with you and hope to get you back to drying right away.
Happy Holidays to you!

You need to do a continuity check on the dryer cord. Also manually reset the breakers and make sure you have power (both legs). After this and you still have trouble, do a continuity test on the door switch. The door switch will keep a dryer from operating. After that, you will need to check that your motor is being called to come on. Also check the capacitor and that it is reading the correct microfarad's with in 5%.

Try first unplugging power cord from the appliance, this will drain power from circuits and reset it.

Check the door latch sensor, if that is stuck the door sensor will not let the machine start.

Keep pressed start button for 10 seconds or so, on some dryer this reset the machine.

If it still does not work then there is an internal fault , probably the timer assembly must be replaced.

If you need to call a technician you can use the number listed on the owner manual.

If you want to do it yourself, test the timer control, then if it is faulty replace it.

You find replacement here.

are you sure the door is completely close?
if the door is not closing the door switch, nothing will happen when you press the start button.
