Maytag Epic Dryer won't start!

Four days ago our Maytag Epic Dryer worked fine. Today, I put a load in and it wouldn't turn on when I pushed the "Control On" button. The light inside was still working.

I realized I could get it to turn on by pushing the "Control On" button and spinning the dial at the same time. Every time it would turn on at the "Touch Up" option, no matter where the arrow was at the time.

However, pushing the "Hold to Start" button DID NOT turn it on. We've unplugged, replugged, flipped the breakers (which had not turned off in the first place, but did it for good measure), taken it apart, tried to reset the computer by holding down the "Off/Pause" button (but nothing happened), and un/replugged all the connections on the PC board (computer/control panel) -- nothing is working!

We need your help! Step by step directions would be most appreciated!
Thanks!

    Also, no error flashed. And EVERY button you push when it's on makes the "Extra Care" light turn off and on.

    And yes, the door is completely closed.

    dryer does not turn on even though I've done all the resets. Light inside is on when I open the door, so I'm getting electricity.



    No lights on the control panel.

Your motor has fried. It isn't in the Control Panel, the SENSES light wouldn't turn on if it were the CP. If you go to your closest Home Depot, ask the front desk for assistance with Dryer Motors. They will guide you through to get you the right one. They will even tell you how to install it. When you replace it with the new motor, the Dryer will work fine.

hi there,

if it beeps it means that the keypad is sending a signal to the control board to start it but it doesn't. since the control board sends a signal to the motor to start the dryer to spin. does the dryer hum?

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MDE5500AYW panel lights work but not dryer

inside the control panel is a tech sheet that has some diagnostics on it . there is a membrane button test or something to that effect. I suspect that the start/pause button is the problem and you would need to replace the console w/touchpad.about $130-140 new. there are some used ones on ebay.

When your dryer won't start, it could be a number of problems from a broken door latch or start switch to an exhaust duct blocked by lint. It could even be a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse.

The first step in troubleshooting any electrical appliance is to ensure that it is plugged in and receiving power. While dryer plugs do not come loose easily, it can happen.

For more troubleshooting tips, read Dryer won't start for possible causes, signs to look for and things you can do. I hope this helps!

Epic z front load washer will not start


Maytag service came out and told me it is control panel Part# W10217425. I washed 4 loads 1 day and came back 4 days later and got 1 load done. Then it wouldn't start and they won't replace. I got mine at Home Depot but, Maytag won't replace. They say it has to break 3 times before they will replace. After Maytag sent someone to fix and they said they had to order part and didn't know when they would be back. I called Home Depot and they overnight sent me part. Now Maytags service says they cant come back for a week and if I put in myself I lose my waranty. If you don't have waranty anymore, I found at Sears parts for $12.45 for board.

Maytag Electric Dryer Stopped Working


Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning
