Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

I started the dryer to fluff clothes, but quickly opened the door to clean the filter. Now it doesn't start at all- no lights or noises. The current is good to the unit. Is there an internal fuse or switch? Thanks! Richard rLm6m@yahoo.com

    That sounds workable. Similar symptoms occurred to my wife recently... and she was able to change setting and open/close the door....

Won't work. No service code.


the first things to check is the door switch,open the door and push in the switch,if it doesn\'t click when pushed in the switch is bad,next thing to check is the belt,on some models there\'s a switch on the pulley assy. if there isn\'t any tension on the pulley the dryer won\'t start.if you need more help i need the model number off of the dryer,open the door and lolook around the opening where you put the clothes in and you\'ll see a tag with the model number,if the dryer hasn\'t been taken apart and cleaned out the thermal fuse could have popped,if the dryer gets to hot inside from a blocked vent line or the duct that the lint filter slides into is blocked the fuse will pop and it\'s non resetable.

Maytag Neptune MDE5500AYW Dryer wont start


This dryer has 2 fuses, one behind the filter housing under a shield and another on the heater element. To get to them you first have to remove the door and then that will allow for the goalpost shaped front to come off. Then you can remove the hooks and lift the top. Then the front glide panel can be removed then the drum and then you can access and clean the innards.

Dryer won't start


First, with the door opened, push and release the door switch. Does the light go on and off?

Maytag neptune dryer will not start


Ok here is what I would do. The first thing I want to do is check the door switch. If that switch is broken the dryer won't go BUT the lights would all be on and the duct fuse intact. If that turned out to be ok, I would remove the ducting60b599d.jpg in the rear and look for excessive lint and fluff in the vent hose and the vent pipe to outside. I would look next at the filter and inside the filter housing for fluff and lint. If I saw something I thought might be causing an air restriction I would then guess the duct fuse was blown. Does that make sense to you? I Would need to unplug the machine and move it to a work bench lift or tailgate. b5d8bb1.jpgIf the top pops i would pop that top Note( if the dryer is a slopehead I would start by removing the door and goalpost front d2679bf.jpgthen pop the top and remove the shroud and drum) I would look2849823.jpg for a loose blower wheel and fluff. I would check the duct fuse

Our Kenmore Elite HE4 gas dryer will not start although all controls on front are lite and appear to be functioning properly (settings can be changed, etc). I has been working fine for several hours until...


check the door switch and door latch. Open door, set the dryer to air fluff cycle, and manually depress the door switch. Press start button. If it started - door needs alignment to fix it.
If it did not start:
If your dryer has light inside - check if light turns off when you press the switch. If not - switch needs replacement.
If all that checks out ok - the problem is more serious, and you might need a tech to come out and diagnose it.

I need to clean my filter on my beko tumble dryer!


I usually just stick the shower on it to clean out all the bits of fluff that gets gathered in there, but remember to give the inside of that hatch u brought it out of with some kitchen towel before u put the condenser filter back in.

My hotpoint vtd00 dryer seems to have stopped drying


Have you cleaned the exhaust ducting? The duct that runs from inside to outside. Try that first. Sounds like your exhaust line is blocked. Also with the filter out get a flash light and look down the venting if alot of lint vaccum out. NOTE: Unplug the unit, wheather gas or electric.....and if it is a gas shut off the gas to the dryer before moving just in case something gets loose while moving. Hope this helps.
