Two hot red and black 110 volts each, 2 grounds, 1 installed in the middle screw and one to the body chasis in a mobile home after removing the copper bridge, standard home has only 1 ground and needs to use the copper bridge from the middle screw or ground and the body chasis, if your getting juice, TURN OFF THE POWER, Then tighten all 3 screws inside your pigtail plug to make sure your getting a good connection.

Dryer won't start, light is off, but fuse is ok


Had a similar situation after running the dryer for multiple loads. I checked the wiring schematic and found the overload thermal switch location on the exhaust duct. Using my $4 volt amp meter I checked and found the circuit open (the switch open circuit). Removed the switch, went to the appliance parts store and bought a replacement for an exorbinant $9. Installed the switch and it has worked for the past couple of years.

Now that was my solution. You will need to check the wiring diagram for the problem. I would not buy a new dryer just yet until looking for a simple switch or contact that isn't working.

Maytag dryer 2003 was working great I took one dried load out put another in and started the dryer. Working just fine then I found a wet garment that I dropped so I opened dryer door added this item...


When your dryer won't start, it could be a number of problems from a broken door latch or start switch to an exhaust duct blocked by lint. It could even be a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse.

The first step in troubleshooting any electrical appliance is to ensure that it is plugged in and receiving power. While dryer plugs do not come loose easily, it can happen.

For more troubleshooting tips, read Dryer won't start for possible causes, signs to look for and things you can do. I hope this helps!

Dryer not working


becky843,
Huuum,at your service!

With an error code.
This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems.
if they are not serious, or they are a temp glitch!




How old is the appliance?



If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

Won't start, just beeps - sounds like door switch problem others have had


The three short beeps could be part of the fault code. Check the owners manual and there are diagnostic sheets on the inside of the machine. I cannot find this fault code in my data base. What is the Model and Serial Number of your Dryer. Check the Power inside the machine at the power cord power connections. You should have 120V from both power terminals to the common terminal. There should be 240 Volts across the main power terminal. Another quest replaced the power cord. Hope to hear some good news soon.

It could very well be a thermostat problem, however, it could also be the drive motor itself starting to burn out. Some dryers are equipped with a "Thermal Limiter" that will cut the power to heat. It doesn't seem to be the case for you. I would defiantely look into another thermostat but if it comes down to the motor, depending on the price, You may want to buy a new dryer.
