Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Doesn't heat and dryer light no longer works

I have a maytag ensignia electric dryer md# MDE6657BYW (could not find in the dryers list and the atlantis looks the closest). The dryer worked fine on Friday and then ceased heating altogether and the light doesn't work anymore. I have checked the breakers and gci throughout the house and all are good. Any ideas on where I should start to trouble shoot to fix. Thanks for the help!

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Maytag ensignia electric dryer makes alot if

I had a squirrel(?) stuck in mine! I removed the lint pipe and it was really nasty. Something had chewed through the screen and climbed down the pipe to stay warm?? We live in Minnesota and it was cold as heck. Anyway, Have a shop vac ready, I hope this helps. Remove pipe at the dryer, push start a couple of times and see if anything blows out. K.J.
