Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Timer does not advance, even in timed mode

Maytag Model MDG8400AWQ Serial # 19037208CE everything else works but timer will not advance in any mode. Suspect the timer because of no advancement in the timed dry mode, which does not use the electronic intelli-dry ckt board. Original timer had no valid part number on it. Was told part # 33002855 was proper replacement. However, the part is electrically different. For example, when an ohmmeter is placed across the timer motor contacts on the timer, the original timer measures approx. 2-3K ohms, on the 33002855 it is open. Is this the correct part for a series 19?

Dryer wont stop buzzing


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is bad and need replaced. If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. replace the heating elements

Maytag Neptune dryer timer won't stop


If the timer is not stopping as it goes around then it's for sure the timer. The timer does pretty much all the work with controlling the dryer. And if it's physically not stopping going around then it has broken.

Dryer timer doesnt advance.


If the timer does not advance even on the time dry cycle then you have a bad timer motor. You would need to replace the timer to rectify the problem. Hope this helps _MJ_

Maytag dryer MDE7400


depending on model, (mechanical timer or electronic timer)

Mechanical dryer timer has a tiny motor to advance it
many times service techs forget to plug in the timer drive motor when they replace the timer switch that it is screwed to
or they replace the switch when the switch is ok, but the motor is bad
Not a solution just something to check
the timer drive motor is a 2inch diameter press formed sheet metal device 1/2 inch thick on the rear of the timer switch
if there are wires hanging off, that is the solution
if there is no hum from the timer motor when you push the start button, replace the timer drive motor

electronic, not had one break yet

Timer does not advance and dryer seems to get extremely hot. Ireplaced the timer mechanismbut I still have the problem.


This may not be the solution to your exact problem but for those looking for why there timer will not advance and why it keeps running even when the items are dry: The usual problem is not the timer but the mosture sensor (if your dryer has one).

1: Check the mosture sensor light/indicator. If is still shows some mosture or flashes even when the items are dry, you have a mosture sensor problem, probably not a timer issue - luck you.

2: Check if the timer will advance and the dryer will turn off when you have it in the TIMED mode (i.e. 10mins - NOT the more/less dry modes.) If so, then it is indeed a sensor problem.

2: Check that the wires to the mosture sensor have not fallen off (as in my case - a simple repair). The senor is usually two metal bars somewhere near the front part of the inside of your dryer. You may have to take off the door and the front pannel (be sure to unplug the dryer first) to get at the two wires to clip on to the sensor. Clean any lint and make sure they are conneted. If well connected then replace the sensor ($15-$20 and very easy to do).
