Dryer light comes on but nothing else works

The dryer shorted out. We replaced the piece all the wires attach to on the back but now nothing works but the inside light when you open the door.

No heat in my gas dryer, ignitor replaced, and sensor dry level does not light? I miss my dried clothes!

It sounds like your thermal fuse blew which is very cheap and easy to replace. Unplug your dryer and gain access to the back panel. Remove the panel and locate the thermal fuse. It is usually a white piece of plastic about 1/2" wide and 1 1/2" long with two wires attached to it. (Generally located near the bottom left as your looking at it) Unplug the two wires and unscrew the screw holding it in place. Replace it with the new one and reassemble everything. Good luck!

My dryer just doesn't turns on anymore, doesn't makes any noise, I set the timer and push the push-to-start switch and nothing happens, any ideas of what the problem may be??

hello on whirlpool dryers there is a start relay located in the rear of the machine to check this relay you would need a multimeter and to perform a continuity test to assure if the relay is still good this relay usually is one of the first things to short and mainly it shorts due to lint build up inside the machine the relay has two blue wires usually that are attached to it and if you connect the two blue wires and press the start button this would assure that the relay was bad as well do not leave these blue wires connected it would cause a short in your heater or other areas on your unit the piece sells for around 2-3 dollars if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks again Rick
p.s you have to remove the rear panel to access this relay

My dryer suddenly will not turn on!! I popped the top to discover that a wire had come detached from the "door switch," but after soldering it back, the dryer will still not turn on! There is...

Try soldering the two wires together and tape them to prevent shorting to the case. Try running the dryer--if it now works, replace the switch. If still nothing, try unplugging the machine for 5 minutes, and retry. Hope this helps!

Dryer not running.If you jiggle the timer it come on but stops shortly thereafter

It sounds like you have a loose wire on the timer. Unplug the machine and remove the vented piece of metal from the back top (where you would expect the back of the timer to be) make sure all connections are secure. if they are and problem continues, you will need to replace the timer.

Please rate this answer for me. Thank you

Hello all! My name is Sarah and I have a problem with getting my Maytag dryer back together (model number: MDE3500AYM). I had to replace 1 of the drum rollers in the very back of the machine. I have...

When you say frame In my mind I see three sides attached, The door and front open, top with controls attached Like this maybe?
Smaller screws are innerframe longer outer in. You can do this! Just some minor set got this far. Triangle Pieces I belive are corner protectors right and left lower, not positive tho. sorry. should be guide clips too, is the model bychance ending in W not M. Its hard to figure on what parts are left.... I will try to find you a diagram, other than the one attached
