Call a local appliance shop and ask about it. Maytag is pretty common and available. The timer will be about 75 dollars. It could be more depending on what all you have on it. It is pretty easy to replace once you get to it. Let me know how this turns out.

I have a maytag dryer mdg 6460aww. timer is not working I I exchanged-timer. , temp switch, cycling th'st, high limit th.st My question is why does not operate on a timer


It's none of the above. The part your dryer requires is the dryness control board part #33002905. Unfortunately they are NLA. If you are really good, you can study the wiring diagram, unplug the board from the system and send power directly to the timer from the motor to run the timer when the unit is running. This will only work properly for the timed dry selection as the dryness sensing is eliminated.
Beats replacing the dryer and the part MAY be remanufactured by Whirlpool. So it might be available in the near future.

Maytag atlantis MDE6400AY timer works but dryer doesn't come on


First thin I would try is to check your thermal fuse for continuity with a ohm meter with the wires removed from the fuse and the dryer unplugged. Its located on the tunnel that in cases the heating element.
Here is the part in case you find it bad.

My maytag gas dryer timer does not turn, does not get hot, does not shut off unless I shut it, why?


HI. This will occur when the timer mechanism(timer motor assembly), becomes fused, or the motor itself has failed. The timer mech is the main initiator of all the selected cycles. If the timer is unable to rotate properly, the unit will not heat or stop as well. Replacing this defective timer module will correct this issue.

Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AYW timer has been replaced but the dryer won't stop drying on it's own. What is the reason? I have the same problem... the timer on mine doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?


The wire connections to the timer may have not been made correctly when it was replaced bypassing the OFF contact in the control circuit.  There should be a wiring diagram inside the front or back panel that you can check.

Removing Timer Knob on Maytag MDE7400AYW dryer


Can anyone help me? I have a Maytag Atlantis that my parents just gave me and my wife. Unfortunately, they accidently removed the model number sticker in the door area. I need to buy a new timer but no one can find which timer to get without the model number. Via the internet, I think I narrowed it down to either the MDE7400AYQ or the MDE7400AYW....but they both look identical to me. Can anyone tell me what the difference between the two is so I can go get the part?
