Dryer has power, but is not turning on. When turning dial to the timed cycles you can hear it "ticking" but it still doesn't come on. We are trying to find where the fuses are located, but can't even figure out how to get the screws off of the top of the unit... they are either badly stripped or need a special tool to get them off. Please help!!!

Re: Atlantis Gas Dryer mdg6400aww
I'm not sure but i think the screws are either a T-15 or T-20 security screw. TRy going to a really good hardware store to purchase the bits. As for your other problem it sounds as if it might be your door switch. After you get the machine open check for continuity.

Electric or gas dryer? Depending on where the ticking sound is coming from, without more specific information, many dryers use a timer within their dial for timed drying. If the switches are malfunctioning, the ticking of the "timer" can still continue. If you can hear a whirring sound, which would be the motor, then it may be the drive belt. If this is the case, then the ticking of the timer may be more noticeable due to it being quieter without the spinning drum.
If you have a gas dryer and the ticking is from below, then it may be the ignitor that's faulty. However, that shouldn't cause your dryer not to turn on. It that case the dryer would spin, but not get warm. With more information, I may be of better assistance.
II Dryers are fitted with a mechanical timer that sends an impulse to
the control circuit board to stop running once the set amount of drying
time has elapsed. This is because, should an electronic timer fail, this
would necessitate the replacement of the entire circuit board. Confirm
that the mechanical timer is indeed broken by opening the dryer's door.
If the dryer stops, the circuit board is working fine and is not the
problem. Simply slide off the protective faceplate of the dryer, unscrew
the control board beneath, and flip it over. Connected to the back of
the timer's knob should be a small round device with two wires running
to the circuit board within the body of the dryer. Unscrew this device
from the back of the knob and disconnect the wires. A replacement timer
costs a few dollars and should screw into place without trouble.
Reconnect the wires and put the dryer back together. It should work fine
If you need a new timer the best place ti get it is from Rough River Appliance Repair
