Your problem may be the council the part your finger actually touches or it may be the board behind the council. Something is not connecting. Either part will cost well over $100. The warranty is one year parts and labor The Average life of any appliance is 7-10 years. 1-800-688-9900 is customer service. It may be Whirlpool who answers they now own Maytag. Good Luck.

My Amana Dryer ned7200tw has been working great till the last couple months. Lights come on, I can choose setting with the knob but nothing happens when I push the button to start.


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

GE dryer starts but..... stops


What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.
Thanks/Mike

Light inside dryer works fine, but lights for buttons wont turn on. So dryer wont start. It definitely is receiving power, but the buttons up top, on the front display will not even light up (regardless of...


i would double check the power a dryer runs on 220 volts if it is only getting 110 volts it will only run half of the dryer,, that means it could have power to the motor and light but not the control panel or vise versa 75% of the time when i work on a issue like this that is what it turns out to be,, take the cover off of the back of the unit where the plug goes in you will see three screws that the plug is held on with you will need a tester that reads 220 volts put one lead of the tester on the left screw and the othe on the right screw you should read 220 volts,, if not put one lead on the center screw and touch the other lead ont the other screws one at a time until you find which one doesnt read 110 volts,, if it reads the full 220 volts then you will need to check all the wires inside,, if all is ok you will need to replace the main control board

Hoy to fix my maytag PYE2300 dryer stop working. i push the start button and is does not power up... nor make any noise


Do you have any ticking coming from the timer control when you set the time? Be sure the dryer breaker on the breaker panel is not tripped. You may be missing one leg of your 220 volts from your breaker also. I you have a volt meter you may check to see if you have 220 in to your dyer. BE VERY CAREFUL AROUND POWER, THIS COULD INJURE OR KILL YOU IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

When I push the start button, all it does is buzz. the lights all work and the drum can be manually turned. the voltage from the outlet is 220 on the bottom two prongs and 120 on the top and bottom...


and if you manually turn it while holding the button to start it willmake a couple revolutions ok easy replace the motor or drive motr have had this to repair many times you may also want to buy a dryer belt kit while the machine is apart this way when your through you machine would be running like brand new you can also find allthese parts at marcone appliance parts online and you wont get a labor charge hope this helps

My dryer isn't working


where is the lint filter in the door or on the top of the dryer? You may have something in the blower blocking the motor from turning. but if you hear a hummmmm sound and nothing you have a bad motor. try pushing the start button and turning the drum at the same time. can you jump start it? if yes you have a bad motor.

On my kenmore 90 series dryer the barrel won't turn


most of the time when that happens it's the dryer motor getting weaker and weaker until one day it just stops and then all you will get when you push the start button is a buzzing sound,i see this all the time on kenmore"s-mike

Kenmore dryer


Do you hear the timer ticking?
Make sure there is 220 volts present at the terminal where the cord hooks to the dryer.
Inspect the wires for loose or burned.
Check continuity on the door switch.
Check continuity on the start switch.
