If you are having the same problem I had, the motor gets hot and shuts off. My motor was making a fairly loud noise when I cut it on. It would run for a minute or two and then shut off. I had to replace the motor. Motors are fairly cheap and not that hard to install. I paid $50 for a new one on ebay including shipping.

Maytag Centennial Gas Dryer: Only runs in "Air Fluff" setting. If any other setting (Normal Dry / Timed Dry) are used the dryer shuts down immediately. If I force the dryer to run by holding down the start...


Hello Kevin;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

When you run your dryer on fluff you are not using heat. The burning smell is when you use normal dry and the lint starts to burn. This will shut your unit down.

You just need a good cleaning. Nothing major. Send me your model number and I will help you.

Dryer starts and immediately shuts off


Hello sdbruflodt- First, try resetting the unit dryer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. Restart unit and if it proves to be ineffective then typically this is something that a professional would need to diagnose. Since it is such a complex unit, there are multiple possible causes; faulty power cord, house wiring, defective control board, thermal limiter or door switch.

My dryer starts to dry but then shuts down after 5 minutes...why?


That is usually a sign of a bad motor. Can you immediately restart or do you have to wait a while?

The dryer push to start button starts the dryer when pushed but then the dryer shuts off immediately. Is this from over heating or could the control itself have gone bad?


sounds like the even heat control board here is a website that should help, Tim:

My dryer starts the first time with no problem, but after about an hour it starts to make a kind of buzzing sound. If I don't shut it off at this point it shuts itself off after another minute or two....


You are absolutely correct that the motor is the problem and needs to be replaced. The motor is overheating and its thermal overload protector trips off causing the dryer to shut down. Thermal overload protector resets and allows the motor to run again only when it has cooled down. It is the reason why the dryer is not turning on immediately after it shuts off. Replacing the motor will definitely solve the problem.

When I push the start button the dryer starts but immediately shuts off when I release my finger from the start button


That's the start relay causing that. It is supposed to energize and stay pulled in to run.
