Have this guy check the wiring from the receptacle to the terminal block in the back of the dryer. The next area would be under the top of the dryer where the thermal overload switch. Have someone bypass it and see if that is it. Chances are the problem is here.

The dryer does not pass 6 min mark and does not shut off. How would I test a humidity sensor? Thank you for help.


A dryer moisture sensor can stop working without notice, until you notice your clothes being over dried or still wet at the end of the cycle. It is a good practice to test the dryer moisture sensor periodically. There are two types of moisture-detecting sensors for dryers. Once you understand how they work you will see how to test each one.
1. Sensor BarThese sensors contain digits that protrude outwardly. They work on an electrical current and the moisture from the clothing.
The first step to test is to place completely dry clothes in the dryer and turn on the dryer; it should run for a few moments and then shut down right away.
Secondly, place damp clothes into the dryer, turn on the dryer and watch the timer. As the clothes begin to dry the timer will move and shut off.
2. ThermostatThe timer is regulated by the thermostat. The thermostat rests in a closed position. To test this type of moisture sensor, place damp clothes in the dryer. Watch the timer; as the clothes begin to dry, the thermostat should open and the timer will move forward ,eventually shutting off.

Dryer will only spin with small load


You need to replace the belt that will solve all your problems.

My dryer was working. I stopped it to take my clothes. When I went to put in the wet clothes my dryer would not start.


Try pressing on the door to close it and
see if it starts. It sounds like the door switch has failed or the actuating arm is bent. You should hear a click as the door just barely opens or is nearly closed. No click = no start. I.e. Door switch problem.

Amana les60aw gets hot in dryer but clothes wont dry. cleaned out vent, shortend exhaust hose. noticed an orange glow coming from back vents when i turned it back on???


The orange glow is the heating element working. It mush have good air flow or the coil will burn out and stop heating. Also the thermal limit will stop the heat if to great. If you went all through the vent and the tubing is not smashed or flat check the outside vent for air circulation, if good try to dry a load of clothes. Are you sure your washer is spinning out well? Wet clothes take longer to dry.

Dryer just stopped working. Turned knob to desired time and pushed start, nothing happens. When knob is on OFF position and I push the start button, it makes the regular BUZZ sound - times up, clothes...


Remove and inspect the timer knob for a crack or missing tension clamp.
Carefully place it back on the timer shaft while paying attention to the (D) shape in the knob and the shaft.
If they are aligned correctly notice where the position arrow is pointing, ie; off---run--etc.
You may well need a new knob.

Mytag Dryer ModelLdg4000Aw


I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.
