There are a few different scenarios which would cause the dryer not to start. First, make sure you door switch is functional. Second, the white thermal fuse, located on the exhaust housing may be open. Worst case scenario would be a defective timer or motor. Either of these may not be cost-effective to replace.
Hello, Thats a older model and service manuals for it are no longer published. Thier is generic service manuals available at Lowe's HomeDepot and your local public library. However they only cover basics of all dryers and dont get into paticulars of any one brand. What kind of problems are you having we here can guide you through since some of us have extensive knowledge on the Maytag and other brand dryers having been in the field and serviced them for decades
If you push the knob to the left and it makes a good contact and starts the machine, then replace the timer switch. Write down the Name and Model Number of the machine (usually on or below the door)
take it to a local appliance shop and order a new part. When you recieve the new part UNPLUG the machine and remove the three screws from of the top of the electrical compartment and gently pull o the front open, there is only one plug attached to the switch, remove it and dislodge the old switch, then snap the new switch in place and replace the plug, close the compartment and replace the three screws, plug in the dryer, and try it.
You will need a new timer. Unplug the machine. The console has four Phillips screws across the top. After removing those, use a tiny screwdriver to remove the large white disc on the timer ****. Behind that is a square clip holding the rest of the **** in place. There should also be one or two 1/4 in screws holding the timer to the console. Grab the sides of the console and rotate the top down toward you. Now you can reach the quick disconnect to the timer and the plastic tab holding the timer in position.
Can anyone help me? I have a Maytag Atlantis that my parents just gave me and my wife. Unfortunately, they accidently removed the model number sticker in the door area. I need to buy a new timer but no one can find which timer to get without the model number. Via the internet, I think I narrowed it down to either the MDE7400AYQ or the MDE7400AYW....but they both look identical to me. Can anyone tell me what the difference between the two is so I can go get the part?
