I have a 10 year old Maytag Performa. It started

I have a 10 year old Maytag Performa. It started ok, and ran less than 5 minutes and shut off. I get current to the main switch, but not to the light inside the drum, or anything else, it seems. Can I test the main switch somehow?

Hello, try checking the door switch, with no light in the drum it points to the door switch being bad. To test this unplug the machine, bypass the door switch with a wirenut..Don't forget to replace the switch if bad, the door switch is there for a reason. Good Luck!!! Please feel free to comment again if you have any other questions or concerns. Mike

One thing you might check is to make sure there is not cold air blowing across the thermostat from one of the vents. I've seen this many times make the thermostat short cycle.

Some less expensive thermostats may be programmed to short cycle. If you have instructions available for the thermostat, try to find information or the "heat anticipator". It may have an adjustable setting.
