Check the wiring in the back to see if any wires are burned off. There is also a thermal fuse under the top that may be bad. You can check it and see if it is bad. I bet, however, the problem is in the wiring. The plug that goes into the wall may have a wire that is burned off as well.

MY MAYTAG FRONT LOADER DRYER STOPED WORKING WHAT TO DO


It could be anything from the start switch to the timer or the motor itself. Did you check to see if the circuit breaker tripped?

My dry quite working after my was work in electric box he was flipping power on and off


Your dryer is a 220 appliance and should be on a circuit all by itself. Are the items in your circuit box labeled (Lights? kitchen, etc.) One should be labeled "dryer". If you cannot locate one that is labeled for your dryer, Check out the position of the circuit breakers. If the dryer breaker is turned off it will be in the oppoite postion of the others.Caution: DO NOT do what he did and begin flipping breakers! If your dryer breaker is in the off position,is you should be able to flip it back on. Before you do this, have the dryer turned off.

If this does not work, unplug your dryer and leave it unplugged for 5 minutes or so, so that the dryers' operating system can reset itself. Then try turning it back on.

Maytag 3000 Series front load gas dryer (Whirlpool) - No lights, no digital display, not able to turn on or start. Yes, unit is plugged in to AC outlet. Yes, AC voltage is good at 120V. Yes, circuit...


OK everyone, my ears are red. Over the weekend, I gave this another shot, since my warranty repair appointment isn't until next week.

I opened the dryer door (the drum light is off, indicating no power at all) and went to the circuit breaker box, and flipped the washer/dryer breaker back to off and then re-set the breaker again.

When I got to the laundry room - the drum light was on!

So I powered up the unit, and ran the machine. It ran for about one minute, and then went off. So I went back and re-set the breaker again.

Visually, the breakers did NOT LOOK tripped - but flipping the thing off and then on to re-set the breaker worked.

This time, the dryer is working fine. The bad part is: I need to replace the breaker for the second time. So this is NOT a defective dryer, it is a bad electrical supply. I will call the electrician back to make him fix this right. . . . .

Thanks again for all who responded. This is a new unit, purchased on 7/7/2009.

Old (approx 30 years) gas dryer. It's been great.


The fron comes off. Two screws located toward the bottom front (where the front panel angles in) hold the front on. Then you need to remove the front bulkhead/duct work.

Putting the belt on the idler pulley is the trick. If you get this far and need more help, let me know.

MY MAYTAG DRYER DOES NOT WORK WHEN I TRY TO START IT. THE LIGHT TURNS ON WHEN I OPEN THE DOOR HOWEVER. THE DRYER IS 4 YEARS OLD.


try this first: 
  • turn off the dryer circuit breaker in the house then turn it back on. sometimes the dual breaker will trip on only one side leaving you with a non functioning machine that seems to have power.
  • also check the door switch and make sure it is clicking when you slowly close the door.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

pf = power failure
do= door open

the dryer is tripping the breaker because your house wiring is probly not up to snuff, or you have a bad breaker. nothing you are saying sounds like a dryer problem, but could be a big issue with house (could be very bad, could cause fire)

Check your fuses or breaker...If you have fuses, replace both 30 amp fuses. If you have breakers, flip breaker to OFF then back to ON, then try your dryer to see if it heats.
