Check the breakers, then the wiring from the receptacle, the plug and then the wiring to the back of the dryer. If not there, then take the top off and look for the thermal fuse. Bypass it and see if it comes on. If so, replace it and you should be on your way.

Electrical on but dryer does not start


Sounds silly, but because it's an electric dryer, it's run on a 220 line. Double check your breaker box to make sure both breakers are in the correct position. If only one breaker is in the correct position, you'll have electrical power, but the drum won't spin.

How do you change the air flow from the back to the side? maytag preforma


inspect the dryer sides,and see if there is a knockout to remov to allow side venting,some dryers are not side ventable,if the knockouts are there, you may need a kit from maytag specifically for that model...the installation instructions may be helpful if you have them,could provide kit no.,and the how to instruct.

Electric dryer won't start


HI, check the following to address this issue you are experiencing.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Maytag Dryer Tstat wiring


I believe that this part is a thermostat. If im not mistaken, it shouldnt matter which wire goes on which prong. Think this is a reversable thermostat. It should have just 2 prongs correct? Jim
