hello, first thing to check is the long pin on the inside of the door make sure it's not snaped off, 2nd thing is the belt inside the dryer . if these are both ok then it's possible that the capacitor next to the motor could be faulty give a tap to see if the motor turns good luck
A tumble dryer that isn't heating up at all needs checking with a continuity test meter. The most common cause is a heating element failure, or t.o.c's going open circuit. . Some tumble dryers have heating elements that are easily accessible by removing the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious breakage. Others though have their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down. Tumble dryer heating elements are always protected by thermal fuses which are usually simple devices with 2 wires connected. They can be tested for continuity with a test meter. Also overloading and blocked filters can lead to thermo cut out, it is best to check your manual and call someone out on this occasion. You may even have a red reset button on the rear of your machine some models do, if yours doesnt then call out engineer :)
if it fill with water then stops it is the ellement the machine first fills turns the drum then heats up the thermostat cuts in and the it emptys rinses and spins so if it does not get to temp it will stop or continue to wash forever
ok this sounds simple
if the dryer stopped spining there are 4 things to look at
1 the belt for dryer if this snapped the drum will stop spining
2 the dryer wheels these ware down and break off this is what helps keep dryer in a spin straight
3 this is the crucial one the motor siezed up from lack of appliance oil not being added to a regular maintenance
4 the guages has stopped working but i doubt this if it still keeps a timer going round this would not be it you dont have to run dryer to test guages just set guage to a time and see if it rotates with the time on it
the belt you can check your self by pulling down the dryer pan that will show bottom of dryer with belt if its a belt simple maytag can come out and do a replacement and maintenance on the spot
i hope this helped seeing im not there to actually see in person whats actually wrong
