Maytag Electric Dryer will not run. Start button sometimes gives a momentary low pitched hum then dies. Motor wont start. Door is closed power is on to unit.


Try this, tape the button down press start and give the drum a push to see if it will spin. If you can jump start it that way, you will need to replace the motor.

Dryer turns on but does not start when i push the start button. The timer comes on all the buttons light up, light is on inside dryer, but does not start just makes a sound when i hit the start button


if it's a humming sound the motor is bad or something is jammed keeping the motor from spinning.open the dryer door and move the drum by hand if the drum can't be moved the belt could be jammed on something or there's something stuck in the blower wheel.the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into.if you can move the drum then you most likely have a bad motor,try spinning the drum and push the door switch in and have someone else push the push to start button and see if the dryer will start,if the motor has a flat spot it could start like this.let me know what you find

Drum wont move


you should take off the bottom panel on the front of the dryer. there is usually 2 screws on the bottom. from there, you will be able to see if the belt is on and if you move the drum with your hand as you look inside, you will see if the belt is moving like it should

Need a diagram to change heating element and sensors
