The door switch is probably stuck or defective.

Hi.
Yes door safety switch may be faulty or stuck.

Normal for them to go out over time & usage. Switch is usually $5.00 to $20.00 labor well you can guess as usual more than it should.

Another possible problem could be wire shorted. But that would be a rare occurrence.

I have a maytag Neptune NDE3000AYW and the dryer turns on, runs for a few seconds and stops. took it apart and cleaned all the lint and dust. after a while it will run again for a few seconds and stop. ...


Check the door switch. It may be at fault here. Open the door and hold the switch by hand and start the dryer. The switch should have a firm resistance to it when you push it. If you should find this bad, here is the replacement switch. If the switch is ok, then the motor is bad. Here is the motor to order.

Keep me posted!

DRYER HUMS WHEN CNTROL KNOB IS PRESSED & MOVES SLIGHTLY..IF HELD IN TOO LONG IT BKICKS BREAKER. MODEL#HYE3658AYW


Greetings,

This sounds like the motor is bad, or going bad...I would have someone help you try and start it....open the door and hold the door switch in and keep holding the door switch while pushing the knob to start it and at the same time....have someone try and turn the inside drum usually, counterclockwise and see if it takes off....if it does...let go of the start switch up on console(timer),
but keep holding in on the door switch to let it run for awhile...you can shut the door real fast and it should keep running... if none of this works and it still will not start and just hum...the motor is bad

Dryer will not start when I push the start button. All I get is a loud buzzing.


Hi,
The buzzing is a good sign that the motor is bad...


There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

Dryer door will not stay closed tight enough to keep dryer running. I have chanced both clips, is there an adjustment?


Push the pin switch in and see if she will run with the door open. If you put in the metal clips, the usually nylon, receiver part may be bad from forcing it the last few times. These are easily cracked with very little effort, and a somewhat bent prong on the actual door.

Whirlpool 110 electric dryer will not keep running


When you press the start button you complete a circuit bringing the juice into your dryer to run the motor the igniter or heating elements and what ever else goes whee when your dryer is drying. So if you press the button to complete the circuit then when you let go of the button it would stand to reason that it break that flow and shut it all down. However in a dryer there is something of a centrifugal switch that kicks in and keeps that circuit open and flowing with juice once the drum begins to turn and you let go of the button. That's why in a normal situation if you don't hold the button down long enough the dryer will cut right back off or if you open the door to the dryer to throw something in and close it before it quits turning it will stay running. Sounds like you could add this centrifugal switch to the list of possible culprits in this mystery. O7OUT

Need help with OLD dryer


IF YOU MEAN THAT THE DRYER STARTS BACK UP WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED. CHECK TO SEE IF THE PUSH TO START BUTTON IS STUCK PRESSED IN AND NOT SPRINGING BACK OUT.
IF IT IS STUCK, TRY WD-40 TO LOOSTEN IT. OTHERWISE, REPLACE THE SWITCH.

IF THE DRYER KEEPS RUNNING WHEN YOU "OPEN" THE DOOR, THE DOOR SWITCH IS SHORTED. REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH.

Dryer won't stop running - Second try


The push-to-start switch is the easiest and cheapest to replace. You can check it by starting the machine then, unplug it, remove one of the wires from the switch, then plug dryer back up. Dryer should not start. If your model has an even heat board and two relays under the console, your problem could be with them if switch is not bad. Reply back if you need to know how to check them.
