Question about Maytag MED9600S Electric Dryer
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!

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.

SOURCE: Maytag Epic dryer won't start
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?

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.
