Question about Dryers
Examine the household fuses or circuit breakers if the unit is not working, as the Epic z dryer uses more than one circuit or fuse. Replace or reset as necessary. Use a power outlet with 240 volts or more, which you can determine with a volt meter.
Close the Epic z door firmly and press the "Power" button for at least one second if the dryer has power but isn't working. If there is no heat, verify that you selected a heat dry option.
Look inside the dryer for objects that may have fallen out of pockets if there is a clicking or thumping noise. Examine the drum edges and remove items if possible. Separate pieces of clothing inside the dryer if the items got tangled together, and reduce the load size if necessary.
Tighten the legs on the dryer if the unit is rocking side to side during use. All four legs should touch the floor evenly. Adjust as needed.
Press and hold "Start" if a "PF" (power failure) error code appears. If the code persists, press "Power" and then a new cycle selection.
Contact Maytag for help if an error code with an "E" and a number appears on the display.
Ensure the Epic z washing machine is plugged into a grounded three-prong outlet if it doesn't start. Shut the lid firmly and press a wash cycle before selecting "Start." Select "Start/Pause" if an error code appears on the display and unplug the unit for several minutes. Reconnect power and choose a new cycle before pressing "Start."
Verify that the hose connections are tight on both ends and only high-efficiency (HE) detergent is being used if the washer is leaking. Do not open the washer lid during the wash cycle, as water can deflect off items and splash out of the washing machine.
Select "Rinse and Drain/Spin" if the door does not unlock. This removes any excess water from the washer tub. If "Add a Garment" is illuminated, select "Start/Pause" to unlock the door.
Verify that you placed the correct detergent in the correct dispenser if the dispenser is clogged or is not dispensing as expected. Wipe out the dispenser drawer with a damp cloth and dry it before adding the correct detergent.
Leave the door open after use (if small children and/or pets are not present) if the washer smells badly. Place a laundry cleaning tablet, available at grocery and hardware stores, into the washer and set the washer to the highest temperature wash possible to clean the unit.
Set a piece of 3/4-inch plywood under the washer or dryer (or both if stacked) if the machine is thumping or vibrating or the floor seems too weak to support the unit(s).
Tighten the feet on the unit and make sure all four feet are level on the ground if there is vibrating or thumping during use.
Do not connect the washer or dryer to an extension cord, as extension cords cannot supply the power necessary for the unit(s).

What I did was unplug it for 1 min., plug it back in. Push the "off" button once, then push the off button again and hold it for 10 seconds. This is supposed to reset the computer. It worked for me.

SOURCE: Maytag Epic dryer won't start
if it beeps it means that the keypad is sending a signal to the control board to start it but it doesn't. since the control board sends a signal to the motor to start the dryer to spin. does the dryer hum?

The heating element and thermostat are located behind the front panel of the dryer. you will need to remove the door, then the retaining screws. the heater / element is located on the left side as you are facing the front of the dryer and has to sheet meta screws (upper back top / and front bottom) which will need to be removed. the unit has several colored wires for the thermostat and switch. remove these (remember which goes where) and the enitre unit will come out easily.
