SOURCE: Flashing "touchup" and dryer won't start

What I did was unplug it for 1 min., plug it back in. Push the "off" button once, then push the off button again and hold it for 10 seconds. This is supposed to reset the computer. It worked for me.

SOURCE: Maytag Electric Dryer Stopped Working

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

.I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man
who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you go to where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool electric dryer Model No.

The cause of the problem is either a blown thermal fuse, a faulty belt switch (loose or worn out belt), a faulty door switch, or a faulty machine control board. Activate the "Diagnostic Test Mode" to determine which you should check first to avoid unnecessary disassembly of the machine.

Diagnostic Test Mode Activation Procedure

  1. Unplug the machine for fifteen minutes.
  2. Make sure the machine stays in standby mode when it is plugged back. That is, no indicator light is on.
  3. Press the following button sequence within five seconds: More time>Less time>More time>Less time
  4. All of the indicators on the console should light on and "88" is displayed on the Estimated Time Remaining display panel. It means no fault is detected and the belt switch is faulty or the belt is worn. Replace whichever is necessary to be replaced.
  • If E1 or E2 flashes on the display, the thermistor has failed and the thermal fuse is open. Replace both.
  • If E3 flashes on the display, there is a fault in the machine control board. Check the board for loose connections or replace it.
  • Open and close the door. There should be a "beep" everytime the door is closed and opened and "OE" is displayed whenever the door is opened. The door switch is faulty if no "beep" is heard or if "OE" is displayed even when the door is closed. Check the wiring harness connection or replace the door switch assembly.
Please inform me about the result of the test to give you the exact repair/replacement procedure.

Code f-24 is flashin on my washer

I had the same issue, called Maytag they didn't know what the code meant, said it was one that a technician had to come out and diagnose but was probably power related (glitch or outage). I hit cancel twice and it cleared and I went on with the wash with no further incident.
