SOURCE: black soot in dryer

it sounds like something might have ignited in the dryer, something small. you need to remove the front of the dryer and then the front bulkhead. This will expose the motor, you will be able to see the impeller blades and clean anything stuck in there. I would reove the motor so i could clean out the exhaust tube. Look over by the burner area to see if any burnt material is there that needs to be cleaned. That should do it

SOURCE: MAYTAG PERFORMA ELECTRIC DRYER WONT START

i would start by checking the power to the dryer there should be 110 volts ac from common to L1 and 110 volts ac from common to L2 and 220 from L1 to L2. If you are not familiar with either AC current or a volt meter call a tech. if that is good there is often a high temp safty thermostat some where on the unit. if it doesnt read continuity on your ohm meter than replace the safty thermistat. how ever there is usualy anohter underlying issue. check your venting and make sure it is clear. that is the most common reason for a safty thermo to fail. hope this helps

SOURCE: Maytag Electric Dryer Stopped Working

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

I do not have that specific dryer but try these simple steps.
Maybe they will help you.
1. Shut the electric breaker off to the dryer for about 30 seconds and and back on.
2. Open the dryer door and inspect the switch that tells the dryer the door is closed. work it by hand just to make sure it is not stuck.
3. Spin the timer controls to another setting and see if the other setting will work.

That's all I've got for now...

SOURCE: How do I remove the front panel on a Maytag

Remove the two screws holding the lint filter in. Then slip a putty knife in the top edge and pry up and the top will lift up. You may have to take out a couple screws on the control panel too, not sure

Won't Spin Drum


The problem could be a list of things . Let's start checking the belt , it coul be that the belt is broken or something is keeping it from doing its job ( a piece of clothing coul be stuck) due to the burned rubber smell you detected. It coul also be the electrical door switch and After checking the three first steps then comes the motor part lets hope is not . Good luck

TRY SPINNING THE DRUM BY HAND. IF IT SPINS EASY, YOU HAVE A BELT BROKEN.
MOST LIKELY THE BANG WAS WHEN THE BELT BROKE. YOU NEED TO PULL THE DRYER OUT, OPEN IT UP AND REPLACE THE BELT. A SERVICE APPLIANCE REPAIR WILL NEED TO BE CALLED. - - SORRY

My kenmore 86161100 wont start. the breaker was 1/2 tripped and i smelled a burning. I reseated the breaker, ran the dryer, it low growled and i smelled the burn again. What part do i need? Motor? Belt?...


sounds like the motor bearings are beginning to seize up from heat/age or the combination of both,remove the front and top cover to remove the drum if there is no access in the rear to remove the belt off the motor so you can start the dryer or free wheel the motor by hand and see if it is beginning to turn hard

Press start button and dryer will start and stop , if you press start button again nothing happens , if you unplug dryer and plug back in it will try to start again and stop


Howdy: The motor could be popping it's breaker once the start button is pushed. When unpluged the motor resets and the cycle starts over. But also the dryer thinks the element is too hot and resets the safety switch. The temp thermistor (overtemp sensor) could be clogged with lint or open circuit. Not easy to diagnost. Do you smell burnt wires or lint? Check to be sure the door is completely closed. It may think the door is open and not start. Doug

Hoover HDC7FM condensor dryer starts then cuts out


Open the dryer door (right after the breaker trips) and check for a burned smell. If it smells in the dryer, you probably have a direct short in the dryer wiring. Check for a burn smell at the wall socket. There may be a short in the socket itself, but not likely unless a mouse is lying across the contacts in the wall.
If everything checks ok replace the circuit breaker if this is an older home. Circuit breakers weaken after years of use. A 30 amp circuit breaker will trip at a much lower amperage after a period of years especially if it has tripped often.
