Stopped working in mid-cycle. Light comes on when door opens, motor seems to want to run but hesitates as if being held. Slight electrical or rubber/chemical smell. Thanks!

Unfortunately the motor now needs to be replaced. New motors cost around $125-$150 and are fairly tricky to install.

My maytag dryer model LDE7304ADE stopped working. I stopped it mid-way through, closed the door, pushed the "on" button and it made a weird noise. I tried again and now it doesn't make any...

Door switch broke???
There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor goingbad...

Repair loose tumbler fin

Pop the top, remove the front, the drum will come free. Take pictures of how the belt goes around the motor. Fix your "fin" and reverse.

The top is held down by spring clips.

Thanks for your interest in

Dryer stopped working mid-cycle.

I presume she pushed the start button again. Can you hear the motor running? If so, it's a broken belt. The door switch can fail anytime. If the dryer started ok later, the motor was overheated. Lighter loads will avoid a lot of problems, and the dryer will probably work better.

Dryer wont start

Push on the door switch and make sure the light goes out. When the light goes out, a contact should be made to allow the motor to run. If you can get to the timer, spray a good electronic contact cleaner inside while rotating the dial. While you have the unit open, vacuum out all the lint, and check for loose wires, especially to the door switch.

Dryer doesn't work,electric has been checked I

You dont need to check motor first. start from door switch. check the continuity of the switch if not making a peep sound when you press the button replace the switch button.
