Your door switch might be defective and/or your timer might be defective. If it has a fuse inside it might be blown.

What will cause my maytag dryer to throw the breaker when i try to start it

Not a dryer pro but if the dryer is on a circuit that's already loaded up, or is overloading your current one (amps wise) that could cause it, and especially if the breaker is weak. Could be shorted capacitor or drive motor, or heating coil short situation. (wire melts, ends up shorting against housing). If the breaker checks out, suspect the heater element next, motor last, I'd say. Good luck. Maytag Dryer Trips Breaker

I have a Maytag Dryer Model No HYE3657AYW and it will not start at all. The inside light does not even come on. I checked the circuit breaker and no luck there either. Any suggestions?

a dryer is not working at all that's not good! But it doesn't mean you need to go appliance shopping just yet. It may be something very simple like a broken door latch, a bad door switch or even a broken door switch actuator, in a kenmore dryer there is a tab thats sticks out of a hole in the wall that allows the dryer to run only if the door is shut, other models may have button that protrudes out of the dryer and when the door is shut, this allows the dryer to run. These switches go out from time to time, also if a dryer is full of lint build-up over time this will cause the dryer high limit or fuse to blow. The fuse is located near where the blower is in most cases. When the air in the dryer gets way too hot the fuse/hi-limit will blow and the house wont burn down.

My maytag neptune has no power any suggestions

Check for ~220 volts AC across the two slanted contacts on the dryer power socket. If nothing, check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer circuit breakers(pair)--push the breakers OFF, then ON to reset. Recheck for 220 volts at dryer socket--if ok now, try the dryer. You need to use a voltmeter for this checking. If it starts, then quits, you likely have an internal short (heating element) inside the dryer case that trips the circuit breakers.

I have a maytag model HYE3657Ayw how can I open it up to clean lint inside the cabinet

first pull it away from the wall, then clean out the lint from the vent, then you will need to pull the front panel off, you should find 2 screws inside the door opening, and then you will need to pop loose the tabs from the bottom

Maytag dryer model HYE3657AYW

I assume that your u.s. dryer is the standard 220 volt, and your question is what is the voltage in Mexico where your father resides. Most places in Mexico will have the 220 volt supply available. This should be easily found out with any cheap 15.00 meter. If the receptacle accepts the dryers plug, it is more than likely the proper voltage.
( Maybe your father is really wanting to save energy and realizes that his clothes will last forever when they are hung up to dry! )
