You probably have a bad door switch. When the door is open, the switch should turn on the light. When the door is closed, the switch should allow the dryer to start.

Dryer doesnt work on settings


I have repaired (2) gas Maytag dryers that appeared to have timer issues. In both cases, it wasn't the timer, but the temperature sensors. In both cases, I replaced them and the dryers operated A-OK. The sensors signal the timer to advance. One sensor is located just beyond the flame where the gas is burning, the other just before the squirrel cage blower. In addition, there are (2) electrical coils located in front of the gas igniter assembly. If replacing the temperature sensors doesn't fix the issue, then replace the coils.

Maytag dryer model PYE4558AYW. Stopped running, and no light in drum. Getting power. Timer switch continues to work. Fried Timer?


first off check to see if you don;t have a breaker tripped in your breaker box ! also make sure there is 220v going to the recept.
then with unit unplugged remove the back cover to see if there is a wire burnt on the motor start switch which is common will be a red or a orange wire. if all that checks out then sounds like a timer issue

Maytag dryer stopped working (model LDE9334ACE - electric). Dryer light DOES NOT work when door is open. Checked circuit breakers and that's fine.


Check your timer switch, that would cause you light not to work.
Also check the bulb, it may be burned out.
I hope this helps

Dryer will not start - lights all work - just switch will not start


This problem could be a broken drum belt, or the belt has come off the motor pulley.
One more...could be the motor is burned out, check to see if the motor is running.
If it is then maybe a bad timer switch
