Question about Maytag Atlantis MDG7400AW Gas Dryer

Atlantis Gas Dryer mdg6400aww

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!!!

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.

Will not start but its making a ticking sound

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.

My Maytag MDG6400AWW timer does not advance in the Auto mode. The clothes will dry but it will spin and spin for hours until you open the door. In timer mode everything appears to work normally

sounds like it is not sensing the temperature, which is the thermostat, here is a website that will help you out, #6 dryers basic, Good Luck Tim:

How do I replace the gas valve coils on my maytag atlantis gas dryer?

usually the gas valve is not the issue on these dryers after ten years of doing service calls i have only ever changed one. have you replaced the element that lights the gas? they have to see a certain resistance before they will open the gas valve. these will usually develop a hairline crack they will still glow red but not open the valve. when you replace it make sure you do not touch the element as this will shorten its life.
