Maytag Dryer will not turn on

Smelled like something was burning. Turned it off. Tried turning it back on, but it wouldn't work. It's not the circuit breaker.

It doesn't work at all If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:

Power from the house
Door switch
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Power surge and breaker went off, turned it back on and washer comes on but not the dryer, is there a reset button


The dryer is on a different circuit as it is 240 volts. Look in your breaker box and find the breaker for it (it should be tripped half way). Turn it completely off and then back on. There is no reset button for it. Make sure the plug is securely pushed all the way into the outlet.

Washer just stopped


I would check the drainpump ans see if there is something jammed inside like a coin or screw,nail etc before doing anything else .Unplug the machine first though . A burning smell will occur with a load of water trying to spin .

Dryer not working


The smell was your belt burning into. (If it smelled like rubber) Take the bottom of your back panel off and you will see your belt just hanging in there. Cost $15 to replace and eazzzy to do.

Check to see if it is a pump problem or a transmission problem. First remove both belts see if all the pullys turn freely. if the pump has a tight feel check inside pump for a item jammed in it.look for transmission oil on floor or belts if oil is present transmmision if probably going.ALSO check at the top of the tubs for anything stuk in between tubs.
