Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

My Elba washing machine, when reaches the rinse cycle, water is very loud, never before, but it never stops adding water. Water is draining fine but water does not stop to cycle to rinse.


The water inlet solenoid valve is being held open. Take off the hose and look in the opening to see if you can find anything. Otherwise replace that solenoid valve.

Hotpoint top load unbalanced


Darla heavy objects such as towels and jeans not evenly distributed in the washer will cause this to occur, open lid let washer come to a stop and then reposition clothes


If it is unbalanced as in the whole machine rocks even when not running then the rear levelers are out of position, pull top of washer towards you tilting the whole machine, towards you, the rear levelers will self adjust unless jammed, you may need help tilting the unit

The wash stop spining


Their is no belt or transmission. The brain might have detected an anomoly of some sort such as: slow drain, this is the most popular sometimes objects get into the small electric pump causing it to take much longer than usual to empty the water. The brain shuts down the machine for fear of a overflowing drain etc. The load could be unbalanced or too many in there for the motor to spin top speed and that can cause the brain to shut it down. At any rate you should get some sort of fault code. I have a Cabrio manual HERE

Unbalanced load stopped machine will not restart why?


On some of the maytag washers when an unbalanced load stops the maching it blows an internal fuse located behind the front panel on some stacking washer and dryer machines and under the counsel on some of the top load machines. ON the top load machines it is recomended that you change the lid switch with the fuse that comes with it.
There are two screws located on each side of the counsel. Remove the two screws and tilt the counsel up and locate the lid switch, fuse assembly. You can check the fuse at this point.
