    No unfortunately, I can not

    I don't have a multimeter but am not opposed to buying one if necessary. I replaced the thermal fuse this afternoon, and unfortunately, there was no further progress.

    There was a lot of lint inside the machine. I cleaned it all out but still no luck. The dryer powers up and I can make all my selections but when I push the start button it simply indicates sensing and proceeds no further. Any other thoughts???

  • daddybrad561 Apr 27, 2010

    Thanks for the help. I will run out and pick up a multimeter tomorrow. Its funny that you mention the coin thing. I actually retrieved a few dollars in total of various quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies

    I completed the "diagnostic test" this morning and the display flashed 88. To my understanding this indicates that there is no electrical problems. Is it safe to assume then that is is a belt issue and I should open the top of the dryer to gain access to the belt?

    Hello,

    I did complete a continuity test, and I am getting no reading whatsoever. The orde of my wires on my machine are green, white, blue light blue, and black. I checked the continuity between the 2 blues with no reading present.

    thanks for your help

YOU MAY HAVE A BREAKER PROBLEM. FLIP THE BREAKER BACK AND FORTH RAPIDLY. SECOND AND MOST COMMON THE WHITE THERMAL FUSE WITH BLUE WIRES TO IT HAS BROKE. LOCATED BEHIND THE LOWER FRONT PANEL. UNPLUG DRYER, REMOVE LINT FILTER, REMOVE LOWER PANEL, REMOVE THE LOWER DUCT ASSY. THIS IS THE PIECE THAT THE LINT FILTER GOES INTO. BEHIND THE DUCT IS THE WHITE THERMAL FUSE.

    DO YOU HAVE A MULTIMETER?

    AS IN THE MOTOR STILL DOES NOT START? WAS THERE ANY MONEY INIDE THE DRYER? I HAVE SEEN A PENNY HIT THE THERMAL FUSE AND SHORT OUT THE BOARD BEFORE. WAS THERE ANY ARCING ON THE WIRE CONNECTOR TO THE THERMAL FUSE? SO 120 VOLTS AC GOES FROM THE BOARD TO THERMAL FUSE TO THE BROKEN BELT SWITCH TO THE MOTOR AND THEN IT STARTS. GET ACCES TO THE THERMAL USE. TURN ON DRYER AND HIT START. SO WITH A METER SET ON AC VOLTAGE FOR 120 VOLTS CHECK WITH ONE LEAD ON AN UNPAINTED METAL SURFACE OF THE DRYER. AND THE OTHER LEAD CHECK THE LIGHT BLUE WIRES ON THE THERMAL FUSE. CHECK BOTH SIDES JUST TO MAKE SURE. YOU SHOULD HAVE 120 VOLTS AC APPOX. IF YOU DONOT THEN IT IS THE BOARD. IF YOU DO THEN THE PROBLEM IS THE BROKEN BELT SWITCH, OR BELT AND LAST MOTOR. ******NEVER RUN THE HEAT CYCLE WITH THAT LOWER DUCT ASSY OFF.******SO PUT IT ON AIR DRY

    THE BOARD CANNOT TELL IF THE LIGHT BLUE WIRE HAS 120 VOLTS GOING TO THE MOTOR. DID YOU GET A METER? BEFOR YOU TAKE THE DRYER APART. UN PLUG. TAKE THE TOP OFF. FIND THE BOARD ON THE SIDE UNDER THE SHEET METAL. DISCONNECT CONNECTOR AT P1 ON THE BOARD. THIS CONNECTOR HAS WIRES BLUE, WHITE, LIGHT BLUE AND GREY. WHITH THE METER TAKE AN AUDIBLE CONTINUITY READING. BETWEEN THE LIGHT BLUE & BLUE ON THAT CONNECTOR. I WILL WAIT FOR THE RESPONSE FROM TO PROCEDE.

You'll have to trouble shoot it... the belt either jumped off the motor pully or it may have broke. Either way you'll have to disconnect it and inspect it. Remember to always unplug the unit when servicing it. If the belt broke it is not hard to replace. The drums are held by gravity on rollers. Simply lift enough to get new belt pass the roller. If there are upper rollers in the way... simply remove them. Don't remove lower rollers. Lift the drum enough to install the belt and replace the upper rollers, relocate the new belt and close it up. Done.

Maytag dryer drum not rotating


Sounds like the belt that turns the drum has slipped off or broken. Not sure if I would consider this a DIY project, but if this is the problem, a professional fix should not cost much.

Dryer taking to long to dry


Overloading
1. One of the simplest problems to remedy could simply be that you are putting too many items inside the machine during the drying cycle. Avoid overloading your dryer, as this might cause your dryer to work extra hard to dry your clothing, extending the length of the dry cycle.
Wrong Heat Setting
2. A common issue with clothes dryers could be the wrong heat setting. Most home dryers feature several settings, from low heat settings to high heat and permanent press. Be sure the setting you choose is right for your needs. Another setting to check is the load size of your dryer. If you are drying a large amount of clothes, be sure the setting for large loads on high heat is selected. Choosing the wrong heat setting or load size can cause your clothes and linens to take longer to dry.
Lint Trap
3. One of the simplest fixes for drying issues might just be that your lint trap is clogged. Each time you use your dryer, lint will form in the trap. If the lint trap and vents are full, this could block air going into your dryer and slow down if not completely stop the drying process. After you use your dryer, remove this lint trap and empty it fully. Even if the lint trap is full, your other dryer vents might be clogged as well.
Clogged Vents
4. If your clothes are in the dryer for a long amount of time, but still not drying, the reason for this could be a clogged vent. A sign that your vent is clogged is if your clothes are warm or hot to the touch after sitting in the dryer, but still damp. To unclog your dryer vent, you may need professional assistance. This is especially necessary if your dryer vent leading out of the house is particularly long.
Heat Source
5. If the dryer is not getting enough heat to dry your clothes,something could be wrong with the heating system. After the drying cycle, touch your clothes to see if they are warm. If not, this means that the heating mechanism is malfunctioning. It will need to be repaired or replaced by a professional.

Element heats, dryer tumbles, no heat in drum, never shuts off


Hi, If the dryer heats but will not advance in either time or auto cycles, you need to change the timer.
You can test to see if the timer is getting voltage. Remove the top rear panel and locate the two wires going to the timer motor. There should be 120V when the dryer is running in time dry.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Dryer stopped running, will not restart


When you try to restart do you hear a motor running? If you do hear that sound and the dryer does not turn your belt could be the problem. (broken)
