Have you check outlet with a voltmeter or even checked breaker? Is your new rect' a 3 or 4 prong outlet? If you hooked up red's to black and black to reds it still should have worked. The 220 volt heating element is between the red's and blacks the 110 circuits would be between a red or black to white wire.

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

My mde7600ayw is a 3 wire 120/240 v 60hz 5600w.


Hi, yes that is the correct cord all right. If you'll notice the new cord has 2 hot (red & black) a neutral (white) and ground/earth (green) wires. In case you are not sure how to connect I've attached a photo which shows the correct way. If my attachment didn't work, check out you-tube and type in "4 wire dryer hook up". Thanks for visiting "fixya" and good luck macmarkus :) IMG_3336.JPG

My Maytag Atlantis washer stopped working after moving?


maybe the hose came off the water level switch,,,just remove the screws in each end of the control panel,,some machines you have to remove the panel end caps to get to the screws,,,,then pull slightly forward and flip the panel back to access the level switch,,,,,,my hose came off 1 time and flooded the kitchen lol,,,,but air pressure coming through the clear plastic hose kicks off the water coming in and allows the timer to move forward to next cycle!

Sounds like the motor shorted. Pull it apart and look for burnt wires and/or a burnt motor. The motor itself will smell burnt if it is.

Don't be playing around with electricity, folks. If you use anything but original equipment and something goes wrong, it's all your fault and responsibility. You are renting, have the landlord approve and maybe he can recommend a proper solution.

Replacing Timer on Maytag Atlantis Dryer


Call a local appliance shop and ask about it. Maytag is pretty common and available. The timer will be about 75 dollars. It could be more depending on what all you have on it. It is pretty easy to replace once you get to it. Let me know how this turns out.
