First, check to make sure the breakers are not thrown and that you have 220v at the outlet. If that is all OK, then you will need to replace the safety fuse located on the rear of the dryer.

Timer knob not turning and its not heating up

If you are setting the knob to begin a cycle AND the drum turns when you start it AND the timer knob does not advance, the timer is likely defective.

Some dryers with truly automatic cycles (using moisture or temperature sensors) will not advance the timer if there is a no-heat condition due to a bad thermostat or heating element. This would show as the dryer tumbling a load forever and the clothes are cold and wet when checked.

If the dryer will not do anything at all AND the timer knob does not advance, check the power (circuit breaker/fuse), then the dryer door switch. When the door switch is defective or the door isn't fully closing, it stops everything, period. There is a thermal fuse on some machines that will also cause this problem.
Good luck from Detroit, MI.

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Sensor not stopping dryer

The switch probably just needs to be adjusted. There are contacts inside the switch, and over time they can shift position. You can either repair the switch yourself, replace it, or have a professional replace it.

If you attempt to repair the switch, unplug the dryer first and then remove the rear panel to get at the switch. Disconnect it and then test it with a multimeter, then take it apart, adjust the contacts, and test it again until you get it to change state when you activate it.

The Timer Knob on my Maytag Dryer does not move. The drying just goes on and on unless I notice and stop the dryer.

While the dryer is turning slowly advance the timer knob to the end of the cycle. The dryer should stop. It sounds as if the timer motor has died or is not being powered for some reason and is not advancing the timer.

Whirlpool Estate Dryer barely heating

Four wires on the new cord.
Red and Black go to outside screws on the terminal.
White goes to the middle terminal.
Green goes to the cabinet ground screw near the terminal plate cover.

Dial does not advance. dryer does not stop.

Sounds like a timer has went bad. Especially if it wont move in any cycle. The timers are pretty easy to replace, and on this model, not that expensive. The timer number is : 8299778 and runs around $60.00. To remove the timer, just take the back panel (of the console) off, then slip the knob off by pulling gently, then remove the hold down screws and pull off. I believe this particuliar timer has one wire bundle, but if not, be sure to make your wires to know where they go back. Good luck, and let me know if you need any further information.

Maytag dryer PYE3300AYW Continuously runs

jefo, it sounds to me like your timer is not advancing. Does it move at all or stay in place? In what you are saying it will stop when you turn it to off, I would think it could be the timer that is the problem. Part # 53-1810.
