Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7657BY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Start button only lights up, does not start dryer

When I pull the start button, it lights up but the dryer engine does not start. I unplugged it from the mains for an hour, plugged it back in and it's still the same. The model is a Maytag Atlantis MDE/G7400. I've read old posts that it might be a relay or fuse but I don't know how to get to them, any hepl will be greatly appreciated.

Dryer will not start


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, will not start. I also see that when you press the start button, the lights above the Control button blink and your dryer beeps. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try running any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Kenmore dryer won't start


Many of these newer models have an auto shut off when u have a bad thermostat or fuse that goes out? u should be able to find out how to place it into diagnostic mode which will then tell u whats wrong or where the problem is? u can find out how to do this either thru ur schematic or on line.

Hello, my dryer just click when i try to start a cycle, i have unplugged it and check the fuse box. all the light come on so there is power but it will not start.


more then likely it is the belt switch to reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. Note last two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click) Do not push the right button as that is the trip button. Hope this helped Tim

Will not start when push start button


The most common solution is the lid switch has gone bad or is not seated correctly. if you remove the lid, pull off the connections to the door switch, connect them together and start it up. If it comes on then you need to replace the switch. Should work. Oh yeah, UNPLUG the dryer first.

My whirlpool dryer will not start when I hit the start button. There is no noise and it has power.


This sounds like it is a bad control board. But try resetting the system. To do this just unplug the dryer from the wall for 15 minutes. Plug it back in and see what happens. If nothing happens then you have a bad control board.

the other thing that you can check is for a bad fuse. You will need to remove the back panel where the power cord goes into the back of the dryer, there you will see a control board with a fuse. Make sure that is not blown.

Kenmore 70 series dryer wont start. I was going to replace the start button but cannot figure out how to get it off with out breaking stuff. do i need to pull all the panels off?


There is a switch that sits behind that start button. To get to it, unplug the dryer and pull it away from the wall. There is a metal cover that runs along the upper rear side of the dryer -- remove that and you will see the switch behind that button. You can disconnect the wires going to it (you may want to mark them) and pull the button off of the front of the switch. Then pull that plastic tab up and the switch will pop out if you twist it clockwise.
