The problem is likely with the "run relay" in the electric motor or one of the wires going to the motor connection or a loose connection to the main control switch.

My maytage dryer mde308dayw drys the clothes, but it takes a longtime. The dryer heats, but water builds up around the inside of the door of the dryer.


You will need to clean the vent system on your dryer. Lint buildup restricts the airflow and will keep the clothes from drying.

If you go from the top. The belt goes down the drum, between the drum and idler pulloy,under the idler then pull it over to the top of the motor pully and loop over it. When it comes out from under the motor pully it goes under the drum and over to the other side of the drum, and back up to the top of the drum. I hope this makes since.

Maytage MDE3080DAYW


Hi, it sounds like you have a bad motor. You can try and open the door, hold the door button while having someone push the start button. Try turning the drum with your hand while these buttons are pushed and see if the dryer starts. It sounds like the start winding has gone bad.
If the drum will not turn, remove the front panel of the dryer and see if something has gotten into the blower wheel to stop it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me knwo if I can assist you further.

Maytag Electric Dryer MDE308DAYW doesn't turn on at all when pressing the button

These parts are part of a kit that can be purchased from your local supplier. The heater asm is located in trhe bottom left of the dryer. and looks like this
