First, find your breaker box and locate the breaker that runs the dryer. Now flip the breaker off and then back on. Now try the dryer. If it made not change. Gain access to the back of dryer. There is a small panel toward the bottom that you can take off. After unplugging the dryer, take the little panel off. Look inside and check the belt. Make sure it is tight and still going around the motor shaft and pulley. With this model, there is a switch that turns the dryer off so that it will not run when the belt comes off. If the belt is on, you will have a bad thermal fuse and bad cycling thermostat. The thermal fuse is located on the top of the element housing and the cycling thermostat is located on the blower housing. When the cycling thermostat goes out the dryer then cycles on the thermal fuse until it goes bad. This then cuts the power on one leg of the 220V coming to the dryer. Remember, a dryer runs off of 220vs. This consist of two 110v legs. The element is the only component inside the dryer that works off of both 110v legs. Some component work off of one leg and the other component work off the other. When you loose one leg, some things will work and others will not. I hope this makes since. It's the best way I can explain it. If I can explain any of this or help anymore, please send a comment back to me.
Please rate solution and good luck.

Electrical on but dryer does not start


Sounds silly, but because it's an electric dryer, it's run on a 220 line. Double check your breaker box to make sure both breakers are in the correct position. If only one breaker is in the correct position, you'll have electrical power, but the drum won't spin.

I have a maytag lse7800acw stack on with some years on it which always ran like new until the dryer completely lost power the timer dial won't even tick when you turn it to start it


First, have you check to see if one of the breakers have been thrown?
Second, if the breakers are good, check the "thermal cutoff" for continuity. It is located on the blower housing. Here is the part to order in case it is bad.
Post back your results.

The power will not go on


does the interior light work? Does the compressor pump run?
Have you checked your domestic breakers or fuses.
Plug in a table lamp or..in the outlet to see if you have power at the wall.
If you have power but nothing in the fridge works ...then it is down to electrical trouble shooting inside the unit.....

MY MAYTAG MDE9700AYW WILL NOT TURN ON


Are you getting power at the console? Also, check to see if one of the breakers has not tripped. Dryer runs on 220v and you may have tripped one breaker that will show power to the unit but won't let it start.

My Hotpoint HDA3600R00CC suddenly won't start. Checked the breaker and it's fine


My not starting do you imply all the lights are out or the lights are on but nothing happens when the START is pressed.

Generally the door interlock switch could be a problem if it does not start. If lights are out then the controller is out or the power supply.

Check the parts assembly for idea of parts involved.

Good luck.

Demudifier worked great, all a sudden it just stopped. No power. Now it won't start up. What should I try?


First, check the outlet that it's plugged into, to make sure that there's still power to the outlet. If there isn't, then the circuit breaker for that outlet has been tripped, in your home's circuit breaker panel. Leave the dehumidifier unplugged and reset the circuit breaker. If it trips again, without the dehumidifier unplugged, then the outlet is at fault. Perhaps there's a loose wire connection or the interior of the outlet is cracked.

If it didn't trip without the dehumidifier plugged in, plug the unit it in,. But, before you do, make sure the dehumidifier's Master ON/OFF Switch is OFF. Once it's plugged in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls. If it runs now, GREAT! If it trips the circuit breaker again, there's either a short in the power cord or an internal electrical short. Which will require extensive troubleshooting to find.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

No power


First thing to do is pull the oven and check if there is 240 volts going to the oven. The display works off 1 of the 120 volt legs of the 240. If you have the 240 volts, then your issue is with either the display or relay board.
