It could be a burned power input wire, or it could have ruined the timer control unit that would lead to the problems you have

Electrical power surge

Hello Marilyn Cook - I understand the unit has previously experienced a power surge. Have you try unplugging the unit or flipping the household breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes; is there power to the unit? I suggest touching each button individually on keypad, do any lights turn on or does the display change? If any proves to be ineffective, I would recommend contacting a professional to move forward accurately because it can possibly have a defective control board.

Just got a maytag bravo electric dryer, had a storm electricity went out and now the dryer won't work. It has a code of F73

An electrical storm can cause high surge voltages which can cause damage to sensitive components.
You wll have to check the manual to decode the F73 error message.
I presme you've unplugged the device, waited (say) a minute or two, and then plugged it in again ? Doing so will reset most of the electronics (assuming no damage) and has been known to solve some odd symptoms.

Will not dry clothes

How old is the dryer? The ceramic ignitor piece may have partially broken off. It gets very brittle over the years. Look for a broken piece laying below where it sits. If you replace it, do not touch the ceramic part of the ignitor or it will not work right. Sometimes it's just as simple as a corroded wire connection. I once worked on a 25 year old Kenmore gas dryer that would not ignite. With the power cord unplugged, I disconnected and reconnected all the wire terminals inside and tried it again it worked perfectly like it was new.

Sets such as this still have power applied to stand-by circuits whenever it is plugged in. Try unplugging it for 5 min or so and then if normal operation does not return, ask around for a competent repair shop. With lightning or surges it can be either something "simple" to someone experienced (about $50 maybe) or well exceeding replacement cost. A power strip with surge protection is a good idea in the future, unplugging everything is better but not always practical.

Dryer won't start

1) Be sure your clothes dryer is plugged in and turned on. If necessary, check the receptacle it's plugged into for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. Be aware that most electric dryers don't plug into standard 120-

volt receptacles; they operate on 240 volts. 

Make sure the door is closed completely, the timer is advanced to the proper position, and the correct cycle is selected.

2) If the receptacle is dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit.

3) Unplug the dryer and check the power cord and the terminal block. If necessary, replace the cord.

4) Open the door, and check the door switch. Press and release it; it should click each time. If it doesn't, it's probably broken.

If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service.

5) If the dryer still doesn't work, a thermal fuse or other electrical or electronic part may be faulty. The thermal fuse, found in the back cover panel, can stop working if the dryer overheats. Call an appliance service person if you suspect an electrical part may be malfunctioning.

Is there a relay switch someplace for washer

I'll take a stab at helping you.. If what you said is true in regards to a thuinderstorm, you may have experienced a surge in your power lines that found its way into you control electronics for your washer. Most , if not all of the controls these days are low level voltage components similar to a radio or tv and are sensitive to surges of this kind. The washer may have 'taken a hit' when the transformer failed. The dryer may have also been exposed to the same surge and survived it.Even if they are both plugged into the same power receptacle, there is no guarantee that they would both get damaged or both survive but from your short description of pre and post thunderstorm, there is a good chance your washer controller took a hit. Typically, the control board will activate a solenoid /relay to open a valve and let water into the drum.. but if that board is damaged then that won't operate correctly. Hope that helps...

Whirlpool Duet dryer does not run after power surge/overvoltage

Swb, unplug the dryer, remove the top by removing the 3 screws in back. Slide it off toward the back. On the left will be the main board. Remove the metal cover on the board. On the board you will see P1-5 black wire (L1 line in voltage. You will also see P1-2 white wire (nuetral). With a voltage meter see if you have 120V from that black to white. If you do, you have power going in, nothing coming out, replace the board. Now Im going on that fact that you have no display lights, the dryer is completely non responsive. Catriver
