Question about GE Dryers

Open Question

Maytag Epic Dryer - Motor Relay on Control Board burnt? Dryer will power up with all lights on front working. Press start button and it just clicks then nothing. We pulled out the control board and saw the little burnt spot around the connection in back of where the motor relay is on the board. My question is - this board is at the least $200. Can we/should we just replace the motor relay or just try to resodder the existing. Also - should we be concerned as to what made it blow? This is a model MED9800TQ0 dryer.

SOURCE: The Drum on my LG DLE2512W Dryer will not turn

no problem with motor or control board. fault is with the motor capacitor only. this is often attached to the motor or near it. the value of the capacitor will be printed on it (usually about 8uf) and you should be able to source from an electrical spares shop

SOURCE: Dryer has power, dim control leds, will not run most of the time.

Same problem here. I replaced the machine control electronics p/n 8546219 and got 12 months service out of it before it returned to what you are describing above. I even replaced all the LED's on the board and that did not do a thing. I can tell you that this will be the last whirlpool appliance that will ever enter my home. Simply overpriced garbage!

Did you have a lightning strike near by? Or power outage with a power surge. Could have shorted the board.

Dryer only runs while holding start button in


We have a Maytag Epic dryer with the same problem (Model MED9800TQ0). Pulled out the control board yesterday and saw that the weld had been blown right at the motor relay (burnt marks surrounding the area on the flip side of the board where the relay attaches). Do you suggest we replace the motor relay or just try to re-soder that part on the board? Also - should we be concerned as to how this happened (that it was something elsewhere that caused it to blow)?

Maytag Epic dryer won't start


hi there,

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?
