some dryers have a reset button on its thermostat inside. usually you can access it at the upper top cover of your dryer. unplug the unit first to avoid electricution before opening the cover. locate it, usually it is flat round metal about 2" in diameter with a red nipple. press that nipple to reset it.
main cause of the problem usually the most common is that the blower of your drier is not working properly or it is now accumulating too much of cotton debris from the dried clothes.
after reseting the thermostat try also opening the side cover of your dryer to access the blowers for its condition and remove some cottons that stuck on its blades. if this is not done, you can have the same problem over again and again.
are a number of different problems which can occur with models of
Maytag dryers resulting in them not heating and drying clothes
properly. A variety of parts could have broken or been worn out over
the course of the time you have been using your dryer or something
could just malfunction, as appliances tend to do from time to time.
Check warranty information before trying to repair the Maytag dryer
Bad Heating Element
Most clothing dryers heat up and dry clothes with a heating element
inside the appliance's body. Maytag dryers are no different and
sometimes these heating elements break down or burn out, making the
dryer cease to get hot. Make sure the dryer is unplugged and the
breakers that run the dryer are switched off before inspecting so you
don't electrocute yourself. The heating element is in the bottom panel
of the dryer and is often a silver part which heats up when the dryer
is on. Sometimes the heating element will be cracked or burned out,
which means it is broken. Other times it won't look damaged but may not
be working. Replace the heating element if this occurs, to see if this
is the main problem.
Maytag dryers have motors which turn the dryer drum, tossing the
clothes so that air and heat can help dry them out completely. When the
dryer drum is not turning it means there is something wrong with the
motor or that the motor is not getting power. Unplug the dryer and take
it apart to inspect the motor. Once you have found the motor, plug the
dryer back in and use a meter to see if the motor is getting power. If
it is, and isn't working, then there is something wrong with the motor
and how it is operating. If the motor isn't getting power, then there
is something wrong with the circuits or fuses which disperse power to
the motor itself.
When Maytag dryers won't tumble or heat the clothes which have been put
inside of them, this means there could be a number of different things
wrong. However, sometimes there's a simple solution to this problem:
The switch on the door of the dryer itself may be faulty or not making
the electric connection it should to allow the dryer to run. This is a
cheap fix and worth troubleshooting before tearing your Maytag dryer
apart. Remove the switch and inspect the two leads to make sure they
haven't broken or are still transferring electricity. If they aren't
you will have to replace the switch.
The motor tripped..The wiring diagram for the dryer is
inside the back cover tie-wrapped to the frame as it sounds like the motor has a trip on it: To reset the switch unplug
the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely.
two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on
with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back
and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back
On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the
safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to
reset the switch (you probably will hear a click)
Do not push the right button as that is what got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim
it may be you motor reset button and to reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. the last two screws hoding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch you will here a click noise. hope this helped
ok so it runs for the full time set when on timed dry. auto from optimum or less dry runs quickly, correct? Auto runs on yours by advancing the timer whenever the thermostat is satisfied with the temp coming out. This has a wire that runs from the heater to a resister mounted in the console area then to the timer providing the power to run the timer motor. Most commonly the heater is the cause. GE dryers have 2 elements side by side that operate indepenently but if one goes out the unit will still heat but the circuit for auto is like the heater is off advancing the timer. the heater is located behind the drum on the wall. first measure the resistance on the resister, i believe 1.4 k ohms see diagram behind it. to get to heater, remove 2 phillips screws inside door opening top holding top down. then lift top and slide to left if plastic console. to unhook from console. remove 2 screws holding front to cabinet, disconnect wires at bottom left on panel. reach inside on bottom (2 hands may be necessary) pull tensioner arm to right and hook on motor side, it will stay there till pushed. you will get red grease on you. Now you can pull the drum straight out, its a tight fit up front you can remove a side screw to help. you now have an excellent view of the heater. any breaks in either coil?
buzzing sound generally come from the motor assy, not necessarily a bad motor however. try opening the front door and along the inside of the top of opening is 2 phillips screws the top will tip back and then removing 2 5/16 screws from inside the font panel will remove giving you access to the motor blower assy.. it is possible that something( baby sock, small undergarment) has fallen inti the blower preventing free spin also resulting in a buzzing noise, if so simply remove debris and reassemble.
