    I just now fixed mine by putting a heating pad on the LED display for about 10 minutes. YEA!!!! Good luck. Our power has been out for 7 days...same thing happened this fall when we were w/o power for 8 days.

    I had this same problem today. Magtag tech support had no answers for it. I found the heating pad solution shown here. I thought it was a joke. But.. I tried it and it works! The dryer is running just fine now.

Hoover hdv6 won't dry clothes. When switched on just makes a ticking over sound but drum won't turn. Filter care light comes on but thus has been emptied. Help.

Did you try unplugging and then waiting a minute or two then plugging it back in? If this didn't work try different drying cycles. Have you recently had a power outage while the dryer was turned on? If so when the power came back on it may have fried chips or boards for drying cycles.If all these were not present or did not work call a service tech recommended by Angie in your area

Dryer stop working then start shocking you when touch

The first thing you need to do is turn the breaker off to the dryer , that way you don't risk shock trying to unplug it. The next step is to locate where the wire is arcing over, I would start at where the plug comes into the dryer and move on from there. Thats a very dangerous situation, be careful and good luck

Check your dryer vent on the outside of your home first. There should be as much air coming out as comes out if you unplug the vent from your dryer and feel it there. It sounds like you have a clogged vent.

Hi, My maytag bravos dryer is one year and 2 months old. Suddenly it has stopped drying the clothes, it takes forever to dry a load and clothes are very warm and wet, lots of steam in the dryer, also the...

Sounds like the exhaust fan is not working. There's an electric blower at the back of the unit that forces air out through the exhaust vent. Unplug the unit, pull the vent off the back, and see if you can reach in and touch the fan blades and make them move. If it won't move something is probably caught in there. You may need to take off the back of the unit and remove the housing cover to the fan assembly in order to really tell what's going on, but it sounds like your fan has an obstruction. It could also be that the fan motor is fried but that seems less likely. Remember to have the unit unplugged, there's some dangerous voltage inside.

Check 230v at wall and back of dryer.
Check Breaker
Check Thermal switch (2 wires) at top of the element in back.(unplug the two wires from thermal unit and plug them together and try the dryer for a test

Do the same for a test.

Drying clothes & the dryer just stopped & won't come back on

This is likely the thermal fuse on the heating element. You can check it with an ohmmeter. Also clean out your venting, as this often causes it to blow. Hope this helps!
