Verify dryer door switch is not defective...Button/pin depresses and is not loose. Verify that door switch has continuity when pushed in. Verify start button is working. Verify that rotary timer has poower going to it and timer is working properly. Check for any blown fuses inside dryer...might be located on a control board. Thermal protection sensor may have tripped and did not self-reset so check that.

Dryer runs but no heat. My husband is pretty smart with appliance fixes. Do you think that this thermal fuse solution would be easier enough for him to fix or should we get a repairman?


Hello,
The thermal fuse is not going to be the problem...when the thermal fuse has gone out the dryer will not start so since it runs the thermal fuse is good. The number one thing that is wrong with a gas dryer when it doesn't heat is going to be a broken igniter,this tip i wrote explains what to check when a gas dryer doesn't heat http://www.fixya.com/support/r10293028-gas_dryer_not_heating

HOW DO I FIX MY MAYTAG DRYER. IT DOES NOT START WHEN I PUSH


There are a few things that come to mind why your dryer may not start: -Check to make sure there is power going to the dryer -Check that the door switch is working -The motor may have overheated -There may be an electrical fault or loose wire -If the motor turns but the drum doesn't, check that the belt is still on the drum.
For some of these checks you may have to remove the control panel or the front panel. Depending on your skills and experience you may want to have some of these checks done by a qualified professional due to the danger of live electricity.

Dryer doesn t get hot


it is going to be either the igniter for the gas or the heating element
you probably have an electric igniter. it is not igniting the gas to make the dryer heat i would definantly start with that
