Hard to start dryer, control know loose/misaligned

It is very hard to start our dryer (maytag mde6657byw ).After setting the time with control dial, we pull the control cap out, which should start the dryer but it doesnt, after that we try to adjust the control cap upwards until it engages and dryer starts. Not sure what part should I order to fix this.

My dryer is the same, and will not start unless you do exactly as you said, "pull out and apply pressure upwards on the knob". I thought maybe it had something to do with the clothes wetness sensor. Now, I am not so sure!

Your saying that pulling the timer knob out, which normally starts dryer, does nothing. however if you pull out and apply pressure upwards on knob and touch nothing else, the dryer will start??? if the thats the case sounds like a short in the timer mechanism , youll need to replace the timer assy

Maytag dryer waont start when you push start button


Try opening and closing the door a few times it might be the door interlock switch, Are your plugs fused like in the UK. If so check fuse, or there will be a safety fuse inside the dryer which has blown in which case it will have to be examined by a qualified repairer.

Rumbling in dryer


Replace your blower wheel. (This is fairly common repair for some Maytag dryers) It is not too hard to do. If you can confirm your model number I can give you a part number and tell you how to get to it if needed.

Dryer motor will not spin..motor sounds like it is sutck.


Get a putty knife, release the top by pressing the springclips between the front and top.

Then remove the front. The blower wheel may be the problem. They get loose.

Two of the dials are dryer settings. There is only one washer dial, which basically controls the length of the wash and rinses, etc.
