Question about Dryers

Dryer won't turn on

The dryer part of my stacked washer/dryer will not come on. Yesterday evening I set a load to dry, assuming that it would shut off when it was done like it always has. When I woke up this morning the dryer was still running! I removed the load and tried to start it again - nothing happened. I flipped the breaker and it came on. Started another load and came back to check it in an hour, dryer had cut off again. Tried to restart but nothing happened. Flipped the breaker switch again and it came on. I'm guessing it is some sort of electrical problem but the same breaker switch controls my washer (which is fine) and the light in the laundry room (also fine). Any ideas?

    My maytag dryer kicked the circuit in my basement a few times and after resetting it worked fine. Now the light is on in the tumbler but nothing on the control board.

Auto dry not working on stack washer/dryer


If your dryer isn't drying, check for a simple fix first. Make sure the dryer is set on a high heat setting, empty the lint filter, and reduce the size of the load by taking out some items.

Also, check to make sure the clothes are not dripping when you put them in the dryer and make sure a dryer sheet is not blocking the vent.

It could also be a problem with your dryer not being level or the vent hose is clogged. For more tips and solutions, check out these troubleshooting steps in Dryer not drying.

Dryer will not heat-up, clothes stay wet even after hours of drying! gas is on, gas bill payed,turning needlessly, no drying.


It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

Gas dryer heats fine but shuts down before the drying cycle is over taking longer to dry clothes. Lint trap and exhaust tube cleaned out.


You are going to most likely need a vent cleaning. The dryer is getting too hot and shutting off because it is not exhausting good.

Maytag haevy duty stack washer dryer unit model # SE1000 series 06


I hope you got this fixed by now but if not I'll put in my 2 cents.. I assume that your dryer is electric and not gas. Assuming that is true then you probably have an open heater element.. similar to this used in electric stoves... There may also be other components that could have failed and in so doing, disabled power to that element. Could be a contactor or temp switch/thermistor.. Hope this helps and that you've already solved the problem...

Water keeps running.......


i assume washer never starts running if not suspect water level switch or connection hose also be sure small hose to switch is not plugged or mashed flat even a small hole in hose may cause it not to get pressure to tell switch drum is full ..if washer does start running suspect bad water valve may not be shutting off
