Re: dryer will not start

Slats Does display shows anything? Does any indicator light on the control panel lights up? When you open the door did you see the light comes on? If nothing happens, there is a problem with the power source from the outlet or the power cord not connected properly (possible burned out wires) to the dryer. If you see the light inside the dryer, then the problem is a bad control board. Let me know and do not place a new question. Just put a comment and I'll get e-mail notification. back

Matag dryer not heating

Here is a link to maytag dryer repairs . The most common problem is the thermal fuse. My question is. Does the heating element start to light. If not...... and you have changed the ignitor and thermal fuse. Then check the flame sensor to see if there is continuity threw it. Power to the gas coils and ignitor runs threw the flame sensor. CLICK HERE to see a flame sensor on a GE dryer. They are the same on most units but Maytag will be on the opposite side of burner chamber.

My dryer will not start. It is only 4 yrs old.

Check your power source to make sure you are getting the proper voltage. If so check the electrical power connection on the back of the dryer where the cord is connected. Make sure the connections are tight. MAKE SURE TO DISCONNECT THE POWER FIRST. If all of the above are in good condition the the start button would be the next area to check whithout the proper electrical meters this would be hard. however, the next item in line to prevent the dryer from working would be the start button or the door closer switch. Both of these need to be checked using an electrical meter. If you have an apliance tech check it for you it shouldn't be expensive at least you hav an idea as to what is wrong.

Good luck hope this helped you some

Have a PYE2300AY dryer power to timer

If you have power at the outlet and none at the door switch, check the thermal fuse. It should be behind the drum on the heater housing. It should have continuity through it. If it doesn't, it won't run.

Neptune Dryer

My maytag neptune dryer quit heating, after my wife changed the temp setting on the console from regular, to extra low drying temperature. The heating element reads 10.5 ohms. The thermal cutoff reads 0.02 ohms. The hi-limit thermo reads 0.02 ohms. The power coming into the dryer is 240 volts. What can I check or need to replace.
