I recently had the same problem and the capacitor on your motor has probably burned out so I had to replace the motor.

    If you want to check this out have someone help you and open dryer door hold door button in and push start button and have other person give the drum a turn, if it takes off it's the capacitor.

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!

You may be having AC problems but that is not what happened when the Steering locked unless the AC is on the same belt as the Power steering unit. That whining you are hearing when you turn is actually the power steering unit being low on fluid or the power steering pump going out. Based on what you have described my guess is that the unit has gone out and needs to be replaced. As far as the AC compressor is concerned, if the unit is low on Freon it will not engage once it gets too low unless the clutch goes out. When you look at the center of the AC compressor when the engine is running and the AC is off you should see the pulley free spinning and the very center of the pulley won't be spinning, that is the clutch Dis-engaged. When you turn the AC on the Clutch should engage and allow the compressor to work. You will hear it kick in and kick out repeatedly if it is low on Freon. If it is too low it will never kick in because the low pressure switch won't allow it.

That should be just a push to start switch. The start switch is inside the motor. When the motor turns fast enough it trips an internal switch to keep the motor running. It sounds like you have a motor on the way out.
