Question about Maytag MDE4806 Electric Dryer
The dryer was running last night when we had a power outage. I went to turn the dryer on this morning and it will start with no problem. After about 15-20 seconds all of the lights around the start dial turn on and then off and the dryer shuts off. I notice that the lights continue to do that even if the dryer is not on. What could be the problem?
I had a similar scenario: after power outage last night, dryer will start but won't stay on. Typical timing is 10-25 seconds. After researching this issue online, typical issue seems to be with the control board. Found the cheapest one at searsdirectparts.com for $119. Should arrive via UPS in 3 days and hopefully this will solve the problem!

We had this problem after a power outage and we ordered from PartsSelect.com Web sight. They have free shipping and an upgrade in the shipping to next business day. I chose the upgrade. Before doing so I checked the business hours of the firm. They are Monday thru Saturday. I thought that I would have my part by Saturday. I order it on Thursday night and it was not delivered until Monday Morning at 9:00 am. I went the weekend with clothes in my washing machine mildewing. I would have used the 24.95 charged for the upgrade in shipping to take my clothes to the laundry mat and dry them. I fell that the 24.95 I was charged for shipping should have gotten me Saturday delivery. My package only weighed 8 Oz and it was double boxed. Lesson is do not order items after 12:00 noon and expect delivery until Monday even if you upgrade to expedited shipping. This solution solved the problem.

I had this problem and after diagnosing that it wasn't mechanical because the dryer would run for roughly 30 sec and turn off, I replaced the control board. Now it works like it is brand new. Was very easy to replace and cost about $80 which is much cheaper than calling a repair man, considering it would have cost $50 to have someone come out plus parts and labor after the problem was found.

AFTER A LONG TIME AND CHECKING ALL CONECTIONS IT FINALLY CAME DOWN TO THE CIRCUT BOARD. PURCHASED BOARD FROM REPAIRCLINIC.COM. EASY TO PUT IN. MY ELECTRICIAN TOLD ME BEFORE I START TO TOUCH THE WASHER GROUNDING MYSELF OUT.
