Question about Maytag Dryers
I have a Maytag gas dryer, model #MDG7600AWW which is not turning on. There is a buzzing sound when you push the start button, but the motor does not kick in. I've pulled the thermal fuse, which tests as being shorted and I plan to order a replacement, but is there something else I should be checking in case there is more than one issue at play here?
A thermal fuse should read shorted until it gets hot .. the buzzing you hear might be the motor running but not turning the drum .. that would be a broken belt .. the motor is spring loaded to keep the belt tight ..the belt is long .. it goes around the drum and down to the motor ... belts are available at many appliance parts shops .. changing it is not hard for someone handy .. a bit more than you would want to handle if you are not mechanically inclined ... on some maytags the whole front of the dryer comes off with just two screws near the bottom .. that makes servicing much easier ..
