Maytag mce8000ayw start button won't work

I have a Maytag dryer with drying cabinet that won't start. All the lights on the front work the upper unit works, but when I push the start button on the lower unit it does nothing. All the other buttons on the lower unit do just as they are supposed to. Can you give me an idea of what needs to be replaced?
thank you

    I have the same problem plus my off button has gone out - both for the lower dryer only. Problem is that the control panel is all one piece and the replacement part is more than $320 every place I have found it online.

All the lights are lighting up but when I hit thew start button i hear a click but nothing happens. Maytag Neptune Model# MCE8000AYW


If there's lint or a problem with the air passing thru and evacuating, the sensor within the system will not turn on the gas or energy to begin drying. Time for a service call.

Dryer makes noise like a bird chirpping.


You'll need to access inside the cabinet and oil the tires and belt pulley. Hope this helps!

Maytag Neptune DC Model# MCE8000AYW leaks water from the right side of drying center unit while using the "Wrinkle Release Hanging Dry Only" feature. The leak happens during the steam portion of the cycle....


Stop using the water bottle because the water is overflowing the heater steamer pan and will short the heating element and the part is no longer avaliable and the top will stop drying.

Problem with upper cabinent of Maytag Drying Center.


Mine did same thing within warranty. There is a motherboard problem in them that is cause by power surge during an eletrical storm. First try unplugging for 10 minutes and see if it resets. If that doesn't work, you need to have the motherboard replaced that runs the unit.

Repair man took the front off my unit and replaced entire motherboard. He stated that it was a known issue with that motherboard. I have had no problems since my motherboard was replaced 18 months ago.
