There should be an interlock device in the door that shuts the dryer off when the door is opened. The device is a switch that opens the power circuit. If the switch isn't being closed when the door closes, then the dryer won't start.

HI,
The PCB unit ie the control panel circuit board has gone bad. The probable cause of the same is moisture on the board.

Try moving the mouse or push the power button. If it doesn't work try turning off the comp., then unplug the ac adapter and remove the battery. Hold the on button for 10 seconds without the powersource. The put the battery back in and the ac adapter and try turning on the comp. again.

The dryer will not start when you push the switch. Have checked the plug and power at the box. It sounds like the clock on the setting is working, but nothing happens when you push the button


Try this simple test. As the door opens or closes you should hear a muffled click of a switch. If you don't hear that click when the door is just ready to close or just opens the door switch or actuating arm has failed.

I have an older Maytag D8512 with an electric igniter. When I push the start button, nothing happens. I checked the pilot light and it is off. I used a long matchstick to see if I could start the pilo


there is no pilot light. electric igniter will glow and pull amps allowing gas valve to open. if you do not see igniter glow it is bad or thermal fuse has blown. look for 120 volts at the igniter when running. if voltage found bad igniter, if no voltage trace back to fuse/stats.this assumes dryer is actually running. if drum not turning could be a number of things. door switch, fuse, etc

Dryer does not turn on when button is pushed. There is power to the outlet and power going through the cord to the dryer i checked both with a tester. The lightbulb inside the dryer does not come on and...


Sounds like an electrical issue. Are you sure the outlet is wired correctly? You need a 120 volt line going to one side of the outlet and another separate (not split off the first line) 120 volt line going to the other side. You also need a neutral line and a ground. You should measure 240 volt from one 120v line to the other.

Hello mdonettaYou said,
Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked okay. Any ideas.

yes, try unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker for 5 minutes. Either will due. Some times the system needs to be reset!
If this does not work there are internal fuses that can be replaced!

Let me know how it goes!

Wont start


try turning the drum by hand...is it jammed? if not, then: the motor will not turn due to a number of reasons: 1.) simply burned out copper windings 2.) switch not turning on motor or not turning on motor starting circuit-depending on design ...if jammed, then try to find the interference to turning
