Dryer not powering/turning on


Investigate these areas if your dryer is not starting: Proper Voltage from the House Your dryer may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your dryer is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your dryer. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your dryer in. Door Switch If your dryer's door switch is defective, it will not allow your dryer to start. Test your dryer's door switch. If it is defective, replace it. Start Switch A dryer cannot start if its start switch is defective. Test your dryer's start switch. If it is defective, you will have to replace it for your dryer to start again. Thermal Fuse A thermal fuse is a heat-sensitive fuse attached to your dryer's exhaust duct (in most models) that is designed to blow if the dryer overheats. A blown fuse would cause your dryer to not heat, or to not work at all. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse. Test the component. If it has blown, replace it. Thermostat A defective dryer thermostat could be what is preventing your dryer from starting. Open up your dryer's cabinet. Test each of your dryer's thermostats. Replace any that have become defective. Timer Motor Your dryer's timer will not function properly if its motor is malfunctioning. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its motor. Test the component. If it is not functioning as it should, replace either the motor itself, or the entire timer assembly. Motor A burned out motor could be what is keeping your dryer from starting. Test your dryer's motor and if it is defective, replace it. You will have to open your dryer in order to gain access to its motor.

No power to dryer timer


There shouldn't be power until you start it. There is over heat sensor, thermistor, thermistat, hi limit switch, and a door switch that have to all work before the start buttton will even start it. Then the power turns the timer motor.

No and the power that go's to the switches? on the timer? That should come straight off the main cord? There is a diagram in the control panel of it.

Dryer doesn't turn on. Replaced the power switch


Power switch? Do you mean push to start switch? To see if you have a bad push to start 1st unplug. Open back top panel. Only do this test if you hae two wires going to the push to start switch. Wear gloves so you dont kill yourself. seriously. If you do have two wire then disconnect from push to start. Make sure they are not touching anything!!! Plug machine in. Tunr timer to 60 minutes. Touch wire together then pull apart. If machine kick on replace push to start. If not put everything back the way it was. Jump out door switch. If door switch is jump and still dont work then check motor test. Check harness on motor. If has a capacitor need to check with a cap. tester. You need a service manual to test wheather you have a bad motor. The manual will show you how to properly test a motor (each lead has ohms valve and you have to know what they are to test)

Maytag Dryer won't start withouth me turning the drum.


Good day. Ugly problem.
My first choice would have been the motor, but.......
Here is the process, it might help you.
The power to the motor goes first to and thru the door switch. It then returns to the timer.
When the timer is turned to any running position, power leaves the timer where it is split into 2 leads.

One of the power leads goes directly to the centrifugal switch Which is the switch on the motor with all the wires. If you spin the drum, you also spin the motor, and if spun fast enough will close the contacts on the cetrifugal switch, thus sending power to the motor, allowing it to run. I guess you have done that.

The second lead out of the timer goes to the push to start switch, it then leaves and goes to the centrifugal switch but on the power side, so it is directly connected to the main winding in the motor.
That is why when you press the press to start switch, the motor runs, and if held in it will continue to run.
In fact, at this point, the motor had 2 sources of power, either of which can run the motor.
Thus releasing the push to start switch doesn't matter, since it runs off the other source.

Possibilities.
The centrifugal switch is not wired right. Please recheck. (or the motor was bad out of the box. Happens).
The push to start switch is bad, and needs replaced.
Or, the wiring going to or leaving the push to start switch has broken or making a bad connection.
Lastley, I said the power comes out of the timer and splits into 2 circuits. Not always true, in some models the timer sends 2 seperate wires out carrying the power, with the possibility the timer could be bad.

Hope this helps.
and thank for using FixYa

Dryer wont start. starter switch is new and timer will run when the door is closed


HI. if the timer is running, and the wiring harness is in good condition, this will confirm motor failure. I would advise to test the operational value of the door switch as well but if the door switch is working, this will only lead to motor failure.

If the dryer does not start, you need to make a few observations in order to work toward a diagnosis. If the motor is humming or trying to turn but does not engage, check the following:

Make sure a garment or excess lint build up isn't stuck in the blower wheel, causing the motor to be physically unable to turn. If the blower wheel turns independently of the motor, or it is stripped on the motor shaft, you should replace the blower wheel. Inspect the drum support system, including the rear bearing, rollers, front glides or belt tension wheel for excessive wear, which could make the drum hard to turn. If the drum turns freely, and you have no obstructions causing any drag on the motor, replace the motor. The motor humming is usually an indication the motor is receiving proper power, but it is just unable to start on its own.

If the dryer is "dead" or you hear nothing when you push start on the unit, there are several electrical components to check. First, check the wall socket to make sure you have proper voltage to the dryer. An electric dryer should have 240 volts or two "legs" of 120 volts of power at the terminal block on the dryer. A gas dryer should have 120 volts of power at the receptacle in which it is plugged into. Once you've verified proper power to the unit, proceed with diagnosing the internal components of the dryer. Use the wiring diagram on the unit itself with an electrical test meter to take the guess work out of the diagnosis.

Check the door switch. On the frame of the dryer where the door closes, there is a door switch that should “click” when actuated. This doesn't absolutely mean the switch is good, but if it doesn't “click” it's probably bad. You can test the switch for continuity with a volt/ohm meter.


Check the push button start switch to make sure the contacts are closing properly when the switch is depressed. You can do this with an ohm meter with the wires removed from the switch. If this function is done through the timer, you can check the timer contacts used for this purpose in the same manner. If the motor only runs when the start switch is pushed the motor may be plugged with lint or it may have a bad winding. When a motor has a bad winding it will not stay running once the start switch (or timer) is released.

Most dryers built in the last 10 years have one or more thermostat-like parts that will shut down operation if the dryer overheats. These "one time" thermal fuses are located on the heater housing or on the blower housing inside the unit and must be replaced once they have been tripped. More importantly, you need to determine why the unit has overheated before you resume operating the dryer. Check the venting to make sure it's clean all the way to the outdoors and that it's as short as possible. Also, use a thermometer to check the outlet temperature of the dryer. If it is overheating, replace the control thermostat used for that cycle. A heating element that is touching the frame or cabinet can provide constant heat, even when the control thermostat has cycled off. So be sure to inspect the element for any grounds or shorts.


When all the components listed above seem to be in working order, you either have open contacts in the timer not supplying power to the motor, or the motor itself has an open winding. On occasion, you may have a burnt or broken wire causing the failure. Inspect the wiring around the motor area.

Ge dryer wont start had problems with switch before


More than likely if you say you had problems with the switch before than you might have a bad starting switch, but check to see if the start switch is getting power from the timer if is getting power from the timer check the "safety fuse" located in the heater area. This "safety fuse" is designed to cut power off to the motor if the dryer overheats above a "safe" level (On dryers made after January 1, 1996 in accordance with U.L. and C.P.S.C. standards). If the "safety-fuse" is good than check the "start" circut of the motor.If there IS POWER (115 volts) going into the "start" circut of the motor ,but the motor won't "run" than the motor needs to be replaced.
Plus check to see if the timer hasn't "shorted out" as well.
