Replace starter switch

Putty knife to release the top then lift the top off there. I ain't never seen a start switch break yet. Your fuse is probably gone or door switch broken. Start switch nawsir. Rare.
Small disk on rear upper right hand corner is the fuse. If open the dryer will not operate.

Tumbler belt needs to be replaced. How do I remove the dryer panel for access?

1.Unplug your Maytag dryer from the wall outlet, and pull the dryer two feet away from the wall.
2.Wrap duct tape around the edge of a 2-inch putty knife blade. Go to the front of the dryer and insert the putty knife between the top and bottom panels, two inches from the right corner of the dryer.
3.Press the putty knife blade over the inside retaining clip while lifting the top right corner with your free hand. Pull the putty knife out, and insert the putty knife two inches from the left corner of the dryer.Slide the blade over the retaining clip, and raise the top panel completely back toward the rear wall.
4.Disconnect the door switch wiring harness on the upper right inside corner of the dryer cabinet.Press the locking tabs on each side of the wiring harness with your fingers and pull the harness away from the door switch.
5.Locate the screws that secure the front panel to the sides of the dryer.The screws are on the inside front upper corners on flanges. Remove the screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver.
6.Pull the top of the front panel six inches toward you, and lift the panel up and off the bottom retainers.Place the front panel out of your way until you are ready to reinstall the panel.

We need to know what wires to hook together to bypass the door switch on our maytag electric dryer to test it

lift the top up on your dryer.this will require a wide,flat tool @ front corners.a flat screw driver will work but a stiff putty knife is ideal.lift & pull.the door switch is in the upper right hand corner.when you raise the top & lean it carefully out of the way you will see the obvious door switch wires.pull them off of the switch & put them together w/ a clothes can bump the start button w/ the lid still up.if it starts up,its the switch.

Dryer makes a click sound when i push start button wont start frigidaire model # LEQ1442ESO

The thermal limit/fuse is located on the rear bulkhead inside upper right hand corner. I recommend cleaning the dryer and vent, inspecting the innards for clues as to why the dryer fuse blew. Usually an air restriction of some sort.

My dryer will not turn on the light is on, but it won't turn on. It is a Kenmore 70 series.

You probably have an open thermo fuse. This is usualy caused by an overheat condition - or- a restrictricted vent.
Also check the door switch tab - usually protruding o n the upper corner of the opening of the dryer (door open of course)

Light is on but wont tumble

The fuse is mounted on the rear bulkhead upper right hand corner. About the size of a dime. It only blows if there is a restriction of some sort in air flow.

The dryer will not turn on.

Well, thats the door switch. Probably the plastic locking flanges that holds it in place are broken off allowing it to fall back in the cabinet. The flanges and switch are one in the same part itself and not very expensive, but you have to remove the top deck of the cabinet to access the switch/wiring harness and render replacement efforts. You can purchase the part thru Sears/Kenmore by giving them your Whirlpool model number. Once you have the part, be sure to unplug your machine first before attempting this! Safety first!

Electric clothes dryer will not turn on

Check in the upper corner of the dryer when you open it. There should be a slot where a little tab sticks out. This is the door switch. The tab should stick out about 3/4 of an inch. Is it broken? Dave

Blown fuse. Mounted in the upper right hand corner of the rear bulkhead. Clean out the lint and open the blocked vent or she will just blow again.10d2afc.jpg
