    My maytag dryer won't start - took it apart and removed tons of caked up lint from the blower and vents.  Everything is clean - proper voltage at electrical connectors; door switch and latch appear to be ok, but not sure how to test power button and thermal fuse.

Check and make sure that the door is secure. If the door is not securely shut and latched it will not turn on. You could have a problem with the door switch though too. It may need to be replaced. If it is not sensing that the door is latched anymore the dryer will not come on. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help.

Amana LE7153WM drier will not start... makes a low humming sound when you push in the select dial to start the drier

Hi John, W/D here.
Most likely scenario: squealing was either a belt or a bearing. Failure to run is probably a broken belt. Gain access to the back of the drier, with the power disconnected. Open the back and check the belt. If broken, replace it, and then rotate the drier by hand, listening for additional squeals and squeaks. If no other issues are noted, replace the back cover, plug it back in and try it out.
Best regards, --W/D--

My Roper dryer RED4400VQ won't start

Have you checked the door switch? If not make sure it clicks as it should. Next confirm that you have full power to drier, sometimes they have two 120 breakers in your breaker panel, make sure one has not tripped. Also check drier cord and receptical. If all is well it is probably the thermal control fuse behind the back panel on drier, on the blower houseing. It is a small white narrow fuse with two wires to it. There is no way to reset this, you will have to purchase another around 15.00. just be sure to turn drier off and unplug before removeing panel. Good Luck

I have a MEDC400VWG drier.Woked fine yesterday. Put clothes in it today. Pushed start button. nothing happened. Smelled somthing getting hot. opened drier. Heating coils lit up. (with door open). Turned...

Sounds as if the motor centrifugal switch is stuck. Check to see if lint built up around switch or centrifugal mechanism on motor shaft. Rap switch with the handle of a screw driver hard but don't break it .

My Maytage drier just stopped working. The belt

Make sure you have proper voltage 220/240V to the back of the dryer, not just the outlet. It is also possible you may have a electronic safety device such as an over temp limit that has opened. This has to be checked with a continuity or voltage meter. These are not resettable but have to be replaced.

Opened dryer door mid-cycle left open 1 hr. Dryer won't restart

there is a door switch on left upper corner of drier opening, make sure the little prong is clicking when you push it in. this turns the drier back on when the door is closed and the start button is pushed.
