Question about Maytag Dryers

2 Answers

Maytag 3000 Series front load gas dryer (Whirlpool) - No lights, no digital display, not able to turn on or start. Yes, unit is plugged in to AC outlet. Yes, AC voltage is good at 120V. Yes, circuit breaker is good and is "on". This problem occured after electrical work was done in the house, a circuit breaker to the washer was replaced. Yes, washer, not dryer. Both units were powered down/un-plugged. When electric wok was completed, tested both washer and dryer. But since there was no clothes inside, I ran the dryer for about 1 minute, and pushed the power/cancel button. The unit turned off. Several hours later, I cannot turn power on or re-start the dryer.

    Great idea, I did not think about that path! Meanwhile, I figured this out - and learned some things about circuit breakers - the ones I have do not **look** tripped, but when throwing them all the way off and then back on to reset - that changes things.

OK everyone, my ears are red. Over the weekend, I gave this another shot, since my warranty repair appointment isn't until next week.

I opened the dryer door (the drum light is off, indicating no power at all) and went to the circuit breaker box, and flipped the washer/dryer breaker back to off and then re-set the breaker again.

When I got to the laundry room - the drum light was on!

So I powered up the unit, and ran the machine. It ran for about one minute, and then went off. So I went back and re-set the breaker again.

Visually, the breakers did NOT LOOK tripped - but flipping the thing off and then on to re-set the breaker worked.

This time, the dryer is working fine. The bad part is: I need to replace the breaker for the second time. So this is NOT a defective dryer, it is a bad electrical supply. I will call the electrician back to make him fix this right. . . . .

Thanks again for all who responded. This is a new unit, purchased on 7/7/2009.

Clean Lint Filter Light Keeps Dryer from starting


Evidently the fuse blew for some reason.
Keep the dryer unplugged from power for one hour or so. If it still does start, you will have to take apart the dryer, check the fuse, check the thermal fuse, and test the wirings inside.
If you need to call arepairman use the number listed on the owner manual.

Dear sir, We want to buy 02 nos of whirlpool make 8.5 kg washer 02 nos and one nos of dryer. We need the same for our factry on contineous operation so we want the best...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

I understand you want a whirlpool washer. What are you washing? It does make a difference on what would be recommended. The other question is does it have to be a front load machine or is a top loading washer ok?

Right off the top of my head for an 8.5 kg washer I would recommend the top loading MAT Series by Maytag (owned by Whirpool) These manual timer machines can take a beating and over loading only causes belt wear that is inexpensive and easy to replace. The only drawback is that the top loading machines use more water per cycle than a front loading machine. My thought is this... water is cheap... smaller front loading commercial machines used in continuous manner end up costing you more in repairs than you would pay for the water.

Product info: http://www.maytagcommerciallaundry.com/on_premiseslaundry/top_load_washers/commercial_energy_advantage__8482__top_load_washer_mat15mnaww.pro?scr=category

Once you see the linked pages select "on premises lanudry"

What I will tell you about commercial laundry machines is this. Keep the controls simple such as the MAT series. Maintenance parts are available on line and your down time will be minimal. The Maytags have the best warranty also.

As for the dryer Gas or electric? I am going to assume electric since you said "Factory"
For this I would recommend the MDE17 series Dryers, The dryers are 4 roller drum type dryers so the weight is carried equally front and rear of the drum so that the drum seals have a very long life.

I have been a Maytag repairman since 1970 and started in a family owned business. These recommendations are from years of experience. You may pay more up front on the initial purchase but over the years the continued in service time and minimal maintenance required make these units extremely cost effective. If I were to start my own business with 8.5 Kg per cycle washing requirements The MAT Washers and MDE Dryers Maytags are exactly what I would use.

Remember Maytag was purchased by Whirlpool years ago.
All Maytag parts can be obtained through Whirlpool.
I do wish you the best, Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Planning to purchase a pair of 3000 Series Maytag Washer & Dryer. Is this a wise choice.


These days, everyone offers front loading washers and dryers. The things to know about them, is that unlike the old style top loading washers (and even the very old type of front washers from 20+ years ago) is that they function much differently.

First off, remember that you should only use He (High Efficiency) detergent and that the amount you'll be using is much less as well, so you'll have to change your habit of pouring in too much, as it will cause you problems.

You'll also need to get used to the different noises, or lack of, when the washer is running. Except for the spin cycle, you'll hardly know its running. Now about the spin cycle, most front loading washers go into "turbo" mode and get going very fast, which is great since it leaves the clothes barely damp in most cases when you take them out.

Now for the not so good issues with front loading washers. You'll want to also change your wash day habits by doing starting your laundry washing with the cold water washing first and finishing with your whites or hot water washing as the last load you do. The reason for this is that front loaders tend to retain just a little bit of water in them when they're done, and by doing the hot water loads last, you give the washer the best opportunity to keep any odor forming bacteria the least chance to start with.

Another key thing that none of the front load washer makers tell you to do is, keep the door of the washer open slightly when you're done with your laundry, as the door gaskets will hold some water and that is part of where the moldy smells, that many people experience, comes from. We've found that by doing that little thing, along with an occaisional wiping out of the door bellows gasket, keeps our washer from having any nasty odors.

Some folks recommend using special tablets once a month (Whirl-out), but I have an adversion to doing a "load" without clothes and hot water, and an cleaning tablet - seems to me that kinda of defeats the whole "less energy-less cost" premise of efficient front loaders. So by leaving the door open, we've avoided all that and haven' had the odor problems at all.

OK, by now you're wondering when I'm going to give you something on the Maytags you wanted to know about! Almost any front loading washer will do a great job and provide you with a decent working life. I prefer the GE, Maytag, Whirlpool, Kenmore, etc., but really don't like the LG's. My reasoning is that the LG's seem to have more issues with torn door gaskets and error codes than the others. While the LG's look nice and most folks buy them because they're so darned pretty, they are a disappointment in where it really counts, in my opinion.

So buy any of the American made washer/dryer units mention and you'll be very pleased with them, and by the way, the Maytag 3000 series, do look pretty nice too!

Take time to read your manual with your new appliances and you'll be ahead of most folks and get the best performance out of them for years to come!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Dryer beeping after being on about 5 minutes


If you purchased them in Feb of this year then the units are still under a full warranty. Maybe I am over simlifying this but you should call for service.
