Dryer won't start? It has power and I hear the timer clicking.

Sounds like a bad door switch ( the little button the door closes against). If that switch is bad, the dryer thinks the door is open even though the door is closed. Dryer will not start. thats the easiest place to start.

Trouble shooting a maytag dryer that just stopped working all of a sudden. Model# HYE3658AYWl

Check your breakers to see if they tripped. If your sure you have power to the dryer, then check the door switch. You should hear a click from the switch. If no click is heard, replace switch with this part.

Dryer was running. I opened the door to check the load and the dryer would not restart. I buzzed, but did not turn. Some smell of over heating. next day before I started to trouble shoot, I attemped...

Usually a dryer that will not start is the door switch. The switch is simple to change and comes in different styles. Some have a screw or two to remove and some without screws you just pry out to replace. To replace open the door and you will se a button that closes the switch when the door is closed. Depending on the type remove screws or pry the switch out. Your local appliance dealer has these switches cheap. Take your with you as well as the make and model number to buy a new switch. Reinstall and all is well. Hope that helps and thanks for asking, Rich

If the thermal fuse is still good then I would check the door switch. Next would be the push to start switch. If not these there is some trouble shooting to do to locate where power is lost.

Dryer won't start - how do I trouble-shoot to determine if its the switch or something more complicated?

First trouble shooting is to make sure you are getting 220 to the outlet not 110; We all know that on a 220 outlet there is 110 on each side and if you are not getting 110 from each side, the dryer motor won't turn on. If you are getting 220, then try manual start. Hold in on the door switch and push the start switch. If that don't work then it is the motor.

WE just installed both the duet washer and dryer. The dryer starts up just find but the washer will not turn on. Checked the outlet and it is there seems to be no power getting to the machine....

Hi, check the following trouble spots below. you will find the issue in one or, all the areas stated.

1. No power to the washer
Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Lid switch/door latch
The washing machine may not function if the lid switch or door latch mechanism is defective. The switch is usually located near the door. Replace if found defective.

**If you are getting power to the washer and, step 1 and 2 check out ok, replace the timer control or control Board and start switch as well.(You can test the continuity or, resistance level of the Lid/door switch with a multimeter(ohm).

Dryer won't start

i would start simple, check your door switch for continuity and then check the start switch. If this is an electric dryer make sure you have a ull 220 volts to the dryer, anything less and only part of the machine (timer) will operate
