Dryer wont start


If the problem you are having is that your Maytag gas dryer is not starting, these are the parts you will need to check until you find and correct the problem.

You need to make sure that the wall outlet has 120 volts presents in it, in order for the dryer to be able to start. Connect a good working hair dryer in the wall outlet, if the hair dryer works, then you know that the wall outlet is not the problem.

Most gas dryers have one thermal fuse and some have two thermal fuses wired in series with the motor. If any of the thermal fuses are blown that could be one of the reasons of your dryer not starting.

The timer is the distribution center in the dryer, the timer will send the right voltage to each of the individual parts in the dryer. Most common problem with the timer, is burnt contacts.

The motor is in charge of turning the tumbler, turning the blower to circulate hot air inside of the dryer and making sure that the heating element won't come on when the dryer motor is not running. A bad or weak motor could be the reason for your Maytag gas dryer not starting.

The door switch is a safety device use to prevent the dryer motor from starting or running when the door in the dryer is open. Burnt contacts or a broken actuator on the switch could be the reason that the dryer is not starting.

The push to start switch is single pole single throw switch that is use to start the motor. Once the motor starts running the switch is no longer in the motor circuit. A bad push to start switch could be the cause of your dryer not starting.

Burnt terminals or wires on the cord could be the reason for your dryer not starting.

As you can see, if any one of these parts fails the dryer will not start.

If you get a series of four rapid beeps when you push START in an attempt to start your dryer, your door switch (interlock) is defective.  I have experienced this problem before and it is a fairly simple problem to fix.  The easiest way to tell is to open the dryer door and push the door interlock in by hand.  Hold it in while pushing the START button.  If the dryer starts, then all you have is a simple problem of the door not closing properly.  If the dryer still does not start, however, replace the dryer door interlock.  The interlock should also make a definite "click" while pushing it in.  If it does not, the switch is worn out.  Some dryers have an upper and lower door interlock.  If yours is equipped with two interlocks, make sure they are both functioning and that the door is latched properly.  I have experienced problems where dryers doors with two interlocks would close at the top, but not at the bottom.  The dryer would not start as a result.  If you can provide me with your model number I can get a part number and price for you.  I can also tell you where you can get the part and provide instructions on how to replace it.  Let me know.  I hope this helps you.
