Dryer wont start

If the problem you are having is that your Maytag gas dryer is not starting, these are the parts you will need to check until you find and correct the problem.

You need to make sure that the wall outlet has 120 volts presents in it, in order for the dryer to be able to start. Connect a good working hair dryer in the wall outlet, if the hair dryer works, then you know that the wall outlet is not the problem.

Most gas dryers have one thermal fuse and some have two thermal fuses wired in series with the motor. If any of the thermal fuses are blown that could be one of the reasons of your dryer not starting.

The timer is the distribution center in the dryer, the timer will send the right voltage to each of the individual parts in the dryer. Most common problem with the timer, is burnt contacts.

The motor is in charge of turning the tumbler, turning the blower to circulate hot air inside of the dryer and making sure that the heating element won't come on when the dryer motor is not running. A bad or weak motor could be the reason for your Maytag gas dryer not starting.

The door switch is a safety device use to prevent the dryer motor from starting or running when the door in the dryer is open. Burnt contacts or a broken actuator on the switch could be the reason that the dryer is not starting.

The push to start switch is single pole single throw switch that is use to start the motor. Once the motor starts running the switch is no longer in the motor circuit. A bad push to start switch could be the cause of your dryer not starting.

Burnt terminals or wires on the cord could be the reason for your dryer not starting.

As you can see, if any one of these parts fails the dryer will not start.

My daughter's dryer comes on by itself ....came on last night at 1140 PM by itself...and ran by itself thru the night until 600 AM this morning. i'm thinking maybe the timing switch/mechnism is...

you are correct. The timer has to be turning on your dryer. You can change out the timer or have your daughter leave the door open to the dryer this will disconnect the power to the element and the motor. You can use the door permanently or just until you get a chance to replace the timer. When replacing the timer you will need to disconnect the power to the dryer. Then remove the back plate behind the timer and selector switches. This plate is held on with 5/16 hex screws. Then remove the wires to the timer it will be a multiwire plug. Pull the knobs off the front of the timer they can be stubborn just take your time and use a piece of cloth between the flat blade screwdriver and the knob/dryer if needed. After removing the knobs you will see 2 or 3 usually phillips screws under the cap. Remove these screws andthe timer will come out. You can order a new timer on line or a good supply center is Marcone Appliance in St Louis Missouri. I used them for 30 years and was pleased with the prices and prompt service. When you open the panel look for frayed or burnt wires there is a chance of this but normally the dryers timer is the problem. You can trim and repair wires with **** connectors you can get these in a kit with the stripper/crimper pliers at any hardware store. Good luck and the door thing is so you can order the part and have the time to get to your daughters home.

I own a Maytag Dryer that has stopped working properly: Model LER6620PQ0 Serial MS3647251 Type DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM54 On all cycles, the timer moves until it is ready to stop. At that position, it...

Dear Paireyes,

Things that can stop electric dryer from heating are as listed: house fuse or breaker, heating element, burnt wire, thermostat, thermal fuse (not all models), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug

To check various points here are the simple tips:
  1. To check the thermal fuse - You can bypass the thermal fuse (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.
  2. To check the thermal cut-out - You can bypass the thermal cut-out (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.
  3. To check the thermostats for continuity - - You can bypass the thermostat (just connect the 2 wires together) for testing purposes only.
  4. To check the Element: Try removing element and physically looking at the element wire for a break in the wire.

Here is the link for the dryer and how to disassemble the dryer along with the images:

Let me know if that helps. All the best :)

Kenmore dryer dial doesn't advance

That looks like a thermal shut off to protect the dryer if it overheats.

I am assuming that the timer never advances - even in timed mode (as opposed to some automatic drying setting).

Most likely you need to buy an inexpensive multimeter and start testing. There should be a schematic on the back of the dryer either on the outside or on the inside of the back panel.

Since timers on dryers are just mechanical devices that use a small motor (and yours is brand new), it looks like your timer is not getting power. The switch itself is mechanical, you should be able to rotate it to the different settings, press the start button and the dryer will work in the correct mode. Without electricity, the timer won't advance.

Check for loose or burned connections. Dryers use a lot of amperage so occasionally the wires can get burnt and corroded.
