Dryer wont start. I have went through the wiring but....

Nothing seems to be wrong there. I took the top back panel off where the start switch is located but not sure how to check if the switch is working. It seems like a pretty simple start switch but i didnt want to pull it off and not know how to check it. It worked yesterday and today nothing. Please give me some of you guys advice.

Thanks

If it won't do 'anything' you need to check the whole start circuit. You need a multimeter and some knowledge of electrical troubleshooting to do this. I can help you if you meet the above description...let me know

the start switch needs replaced, as far as the front panel light not lighting you will need to open the back top panel of the dryer and find the wiring diagram and trace it out, it may something as simple as the connector is unplugged. Hope this helps Tim

Light inside is on nothing else works


You will have to remove the back panel to access this part. Be sure that you unplug the machine before starting. Once the back panel has been taken off and placed aside the thermal switch will be located on the left lower side near the blower housing . It will be thin and long and located near the cycling thermostat that has for prongs on it. On certain machines, the thermal fuse is located in the front. To access this you must remove the kickplate, which can be done by pushing the clips, one on each side jsut above the top of the kickplate, in between the top and abottom portion. The part numbers are the same for either style dryer. To test this part you can either take the wires off it and tie them together then plug the machine back in and see if it starts, or you can use a multimeter and check to see if there is continuity, if there is its good, if not, bad. The thermal fuse will usually be white, and if located in the back, be thin and long with two wires on it, left and right. If in the bottom front, it will be front center on the exhaust duct. Another possible problem is that the door switch isn't functioning properly. You can visually check this by open the door and pressing the switch and listen for a click sound upon pressing and releasing .

I have a Maytag Epic MED9700SQ 6 months out of warranty. I was using it when it quit working. Now when I try to turn it on every thing seems to be working. No error messages it seems to be working, timer...


You have a blown thermal fuse.

Unplug the unit.
Remove the top panel(two bolts in the rear metric 10 or Phillips will work) There are four screws across the top front of the control panel remove those and the panel will swing out and down,move it back and forth while pulling upward it has plastic clips on the bottom that keep it in place.follow the wires from the panel to the control board and unplug them or you can just lay the whole panel on top of the unit.
Open the dryer door and remove the two phillips screws on either side at the bottom of the door opening,then remove the four screws across the top of the panel it will lean out toward you,unplug the door/light switch and lift the front panel off the bottom clips.
You're probably looking for the thermal fuse located in the plastic elbow of the blower housing at the bottom of the unit it will be the round metal disc with a brown or black plastic backing.check your vent going outside and make sure it is completely clear/open doesn't have to be spotless clean but if it gets restricted in any manner it will blow this fuse.

Dryer Won't Start


Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

The light on top on my MRP-M450 blinks and the amp doesn't work


Well if you took off the cover on the amp and nothing seems to be burn't, check the voice coils on the sub. It's possible the voice coils have separated and is causing the amp to short it self out due to ground error. If that doesn't help let me know and I'll tell you the next step.
