Most likely, the thermostats have failed. The machine heated up too much and the thermal fuse turned it off permanently to prevent a fire.

Unplug the machine! Check the thermal fuse for continuity with a multimeter. If it does not have continuity, replace the thermal fuse and the thermostats. If you do not replace the thermostats, the thermal fuse will probably burn out again.

Tumble dryer wont dry clothes reset button doesnt work


Check the Circuit Breaker. It is a double Breaker Switch. one side is for the heat one for the motor. If that is good then it's possibly the Heating Element or one of the two heat sensors.

The dry will not start the display or dig. Controls wont engage anything the start button keeps flashing was just working great


Bad Heating Element
Most clothing dryers heat up and dry clothes with a heating element inside the appliance's body. Maytag dryers are no different and sometimes these heating elements break down or burn out, making the dryer cease to get hot. Make sure the dryer is unplugged and the breakers that run the dryer are switched off before inspecting so you don't electrocute yourself. The heating element is in the bottom panel of the dryer and is often a silver part which heats up when the dryer is on. Sometimes the heating element will be cracked or burned out, which means it is broken. Other times it won't look damaged but may not be working. Replace the heating element if this occurs, to see if this is the main problem.
Broken Motor
Maytag dryers have motors which turn the dryer drum, tossing the clothes so that air and heat can help dry them out completely. When the dryer drum is not turning it means there is something wrong with the motor or that the motor is not getting power. Unplug the dryer and take it apart to inspect the motor. Once you have found the motor, plug the dryer back in and use a meter to see if the motor is getting power. If it is, and isn't working, then there is something wrong with the motor and how it is operating. If the motor isn't getting power, then there is something wrong with the circuits or fuses which disperse power to the motor itself.
Bad Switch
When Maytag dryers won't tumble or heat the clothes which have been put inside of them, this means there could be a number of different things wrong. However, sometimes there's a simple solution to this problem: The switch on the door of the dryer itself may be faulty or not making the electric connection it should to allow the dryer to run. This is a cheap fix and worth troubleshooting before tearing your Maytag dryer apart. Remove the switch and inspect the two leads to make sure they haven't broken or are still transferring electricity. If they aren't you will have to replace the switch

Dryer wont start dryer started smoking last used now wont start has power. door switch checks fine. has power to start switch


That sounds to me like an air restriction has caused overheating.
The blower wheel on these dryers tends to start slipping with age. 528f0fa.jpgThe slipping makes the dryer over heat and cause the safety's to shut down quickly.1b3c53e.jpg 32276fa.jpgThis takes a lot longer for the clothes to dry. aff5565.jpgFinally the limit opens and kills the whole thing.

Dryer will spin but not dry , heat element is fine


Try replacing the high limit switches if the element is fine. The limit switches will not allow power to the heat strips if they are blown. They are the little silver buttons on the heat strip. There are usually two wires connected to them one coming from the controls and one from the heat strip itself
