Do you hear the motor trying to run? it could be a belt, or something electrical, door switch could be a option as well

Possible causes for your issue include:

Blown fuse

It would probably be best to have a professional pinpoint the exact defect.

My maytag dryer will not start. I push the start button and can hear a low buzzing sound but it doesn't start tumbling or heating or anything.


Check the breakers. If you have a meter check power at outlet. This could be a lot of things. A broken belt, a bad motor, Not user if this is gas or electric heat if electric you could have a bad cord or not be getting the full 220-240 volts. You could have a blown fuse or a broken wire.

When the dryer runs even with nothing in it it , makes a thumping


check the inside of the drumm make sure none of the fins are loose,
but sounds more like the wheel rollers are bad, sometimes is loud when it starts then seems to go away a little after the dyer get hotter, is the heat that makes the metal bearings make less noise. u can replace the wheels,the belt an tensioner at the same time is cheaper to pruchase the kit an have it all done the first time! bad wheels put more stress on belt an eventually will break apart so just order the entire kit

Won't start or heat up


Check your breaker box for fuse box. sounds like you are only getting 1 leg of the 220VAC to the machine.

Blinking lights, unresponsive


I went to the Maytag site looking for a manual. None existed for my model, but I looked up won't start under the FAQs. The advice said to push the cancel button twice. My model doesn't have one, so I just started at the left side of the control panel and pushed each button twice. pushing the dry button twice made the lights stop blinking. i pushed the wash button and the unit started.

When you open the door to check if the clothes are dry, the dryer keeps tumbling even with the door open.


This is commonly caused by a door switch that is shorted. The switch is located in the door frame opening and is activated (or closed) by a push button when the door is closed. This will enable the drive motor and heating circuits when the start button is pushed. When the door is opened, the switch no longer makes contact and the drive motor and heating circuits shut off. I would recommend checking to see if the push button the switch is just stuck (pushed in). You may have to replace the switch to correct the problem. If you would post your COMPLETE model number (located somewhere around the door opening) I can look to see how this switch is installed and any parts necessary to replace it. i hope this helps you.
