Question about Dryers

My Maytag dryer will not run. The timer element is working perfectly. The belt seems to be in tact. All lint has been cleaned up. We have flipped the breaker switch several times. Any solutions?

    I have unplugged the dryer from the outlet and when I plug it back in, it shows the same settings as when it was unplugged but still will not start. This happens to me periodically and it is annoying!!

My dryer keeps shutting off after a few 10 to 13 minutes...and clothes are not drying. An element was changed some time ago. it does heat up but keeps shutting down...is it the timer or element?


Turn the breaker to the dryer completely off and back on again. Also check that nothing is blocking the venting. Remove the vent hose and run the unit if you are not sure. Make sure the lint trap is cleaned first. It probably is neither element nor timer since it is heating and quits without the timer advancing completely.

My maytag dryer won't heat up


try flipping you breaker off and on 2 or 3 times (hard and fast) if this don't work check element, timer , thermostats and safety switch on motor 2 heavy red wires (check wiring diagram for pin numbers of safety switch)....if this switch goes bad the motor will still run but it wont let power go to element

Maytag dryer isn't heating


You never mentioned if you checked the large klixon mounted above the heater.If it is bad you will have no heat but the dryer will run. If the thermal fuse (mounted on the right hand side of the heater chamber, 2 white wires) is bad then the dryer simply will not run. If it is good then the next thing you need to check is the control thermostat mounted on the blower housing. While down there check to see if that wheel is loose. If the control thermostat is ok then you have a bad contact inside the timer. Sometimes you can clean the contacts in the timer like cleaning points on a car.

Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Heats intermittently


the herating element might be going bad. disconnect power, remove and inspect the heating element. look to see if its getting thin at any point. as it heats it could be seperatring and only give heat when it cools completely
