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.

I have a fridgidaire heavy duty that wont start. imnotsure if its the start button but the dryer is recieving power and so is the plug nothing wrong with the breaker.


Hello megang665 - If the unit is inoperable there are a few possibilities that can be causing this issue. First, try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. If it proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit could have a faulty door lock, timer, pump, or control board not communicating correctly.

Dryer will not start. thermal fuse ohms thru as does the heating element and the thermal cutoff ect. can the motor be jumped to bypass the timer? if so how ? i have no manual or schematic, any idea how to...


Try first by jumping out the door switch. then push the push to start button.
if still dont go on jump out the push to start button.
i replaced one not to long ago.
if still wont start it will be the motor or the timer.
Timer usually you can hear it running making a clock like sound. motor you have to ohm it out and see if it is good. a service manual will have the correct ohms with blk to white, to red, to blue etc. i dont have em
its only in the book. you can do the door sw. and push to start yourself. but sfter that you must decide to i want to spend $300 FIXING THIS ONE OR $300 ON A NEW ONE???

Maytag performa dryer quit working


Check your breaker first and then the wiring. Check power coming from the timer next. With a load and resistance that you had, you could have tripped one of the breakers.Since you have bypassed the thermal fuse, it probably is the timer switch.

DRYER ONLY WORKS BY HOLDING DOWN THE TIMER BUTTON


You need to replace or repair the timer control, this is not a faulty motor control unit.

You find parts by entering model number here.
