Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Dryer pull knob not engaging dryer, changed it, still doesn't work. Please help! : )


If it won't run at all that probably is due so some sort of lint build up. To get into this dryer you remove the door first and since it is reversible you remove 2 screws on the opposite side as well and then the goalpost shaped front can pop off there. Then you remove the 2 things that hold down the top to the frame. Then you can remove the shrould. Then you can get the drum out. On the blower housing is a round fuse most likely it is blown. Their is another one just like it also near the blower. Check it as well. Clean her up and look for a loose blower wheel. That can cause the fuse to blow also. Now HERE IS YOUR SERVICE MANUAL. When did you say them cookies was gonna be ready? LOL

Dryer won't start when knob is pulled.


If you push the knob to the left and it makes a good contact and starts the machine, then replace the timer switch. Write down the Name and Model Number of the machine (usually on or below the door)
take it to a local appliance shop and order a new part. When you recieve the new part UNPLUG the machine and remove the three screws from of the top of the electrical compartment and gently pull o the front open, there is only one plug attached to the switch, remove it and dislodge the old switch, then snap the new switch in place and replace the plug, close the compartment and replace the three screws, plug in the dryer, and try it.

The dryer has power but the start cycle knob only buzzes


IF THIS MODEL USES THE TIMER TO START THE MACHINE BY PULLING OUT ON THE KNOB, I HAVE HAD TO REPLACE QUITE A FEW TIMERS FOR THIS PROBLEM. SOMETIMES BY MOVING THE KNOB UP AND DOWN AND SIDE TO SIDE WHILE PULLING WILL START THE MACHINE. IF SO, REPLACE TIMER.
