Question about Maytag MDE2600 Electric Dryer
I have a Maytag Ensignia Electric Dryer (model MDE4658AYW). It had the LED membrane w/ a knob that controls the timer settings. When you first start the dryer, the LED is set on the particular setting you selected, but after 10 seconds, all the LED's light up & the dryer continuously runs. I'm thinking I've narrowed the problem down to either the main circuit board in the control panel or the LED membrane itself. My thinking behind that is if the LED I selected stays selected, then the timer will do as it's told. The circuit board is a shy over $100 & I can't even find a price on the LED membrane. Am I walking down the right path on this? If so, what part would be best to fix? (I would prefer to avoid the method of fixing one & then fixing the next. Seems a bit remedial.) Thanks in advance.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Here are some common solutions to help resolve the issue with your appliance:
If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

Possible causes for your issue include:
Timer or motor inoperative
Housing wiring not properly connected to dryer
Bad door switch
Faulty "Push to Start" switch
It would probably be best to have a professional pinpoint the exact defect.

Try Googling " user manual for Maytag Ensignia MDE4658AYW ". You may have to go to the Maytag web site and ask for manual. Sometimes I've had to ask for repair manual instead of user manual. Good luck.
