Question about Maytag MDE2600 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Dryer starts then stops after a few seconds.

We had a power outage at our house recently and our dryer is now not working properly. It will allow you to start it but it then stops and the power cycles on it. If you turn it off or leave it be the power recycles about every 30 sec. I have tried reseting the breaker and unplugging the unit for several minutes but nothing is working. any help would be appreciated.

Problems with GE DWXR483EBWW Electric Dryer. Dryer will not start (no spin,no heat, no attempt to start). Has Power because interior light works. About 6 mo ago start switch was replaced...does not appear...

If a dryer is not working at all that's not good! But it doesn't mean you need to go appliance shopping just yet. It may be something very simple like a broken door latch, a bad door switch or even a broken door switch actuator, in a kenmore dryer there is a tab thats sticks out of a hole in the wall that allows the dryer to run only if the door is shut, other models may have button that protrudes out of the dryer and when the door is shut, this allows the dryer to run. These switches go out from time to time, also if a dryer is full of lint build-up over time this will cause the dryer high limit or fuse to blow. The fuse is located near where the blower is in most cases. When the air in the dryer gets way too hot the fuse/hi-limit will blow and the house wont burn down.

Electric Kenmore Dryer runs short time (seconds) and then stops.

your thermostat/s are not doing their jobs. They are allowing your dryer to overheat and also if your dryer has not been cleaned out on the interior you might want to do that. I've taken out globbs of lint build-up in them.

Control pannel wont cut on and dryer wont start

We are having the same problem. We have the Neptune dryer MDE5500AYZ. The control panel doesn't come on. We know it's getting electricity as the light in the dryer is on. Is there a reset button in the dryer?
