Maytag electric dryer model #MDE 4916AYW

My dryer started acting up like it was not getting enough current to tumble over. Now when you press the start button it just makes a noise but now it will not tumble over. What could be the problem?

If your hearing a buzzing noise, motor.. If it sounds like the motor is running, could be a belt.

Dryer won't heat maytag neptune mde 5500 ayw


If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-

Electric Dryer---

1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.

2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.

3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.

4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.

Hope this helps...

Can't figure out how to get the top off This one looks like a real puzzle. Open the door and look for screws holding the front on, the top seems to lift up once something is released.

Maytag coin op dryer timer programming for mde-16cs

The maximum run time on this machine's timer is 54 min. There is an adjustable peg on the white plastic index wheel which you can adjust anywhere from 30 to 54 min. For example peg in position E is 30min, D is 36min, C is 42min, B is 48min or for 54 min you have to remove the adjustable peg completely, but don't lose it in case you want to change the time in the future. If it is already in the Max "A" position and shuting off early you might have to change your torsion return spring. Hope this helps
