Question about Maytag Dryers
My dryer has power, the inside lights are working, the control knob lights work, but when you push the control knob button, the dryer does not start. The dryer makes no noise when the button is pushed. The lint filter is clear and the lint filter is cleaned before every load. The dryer dried the clothes properly on the last load.
It sounds like one of two things. First of all, if you could let me know the make and model of your dryer, I can give you a more direct answer. But in the meantime, it sounds like its either the door switch is bad...and this is mostly on the upper right side of the dryer door - inside, where the door closes. Or, it could be a bad fuse - which is located on the lower back of most dryers. It has one screw holding it. It's about 1 1/2" long, and has two wires going to it. You can remove the wires and check continuity. If there's continuity (a closed circuit), then its fine. If not, then its bad! You can find either of these parts at your local appliance store. The way to check, or replace the front switch is to open up the top of your dryer. Use a straight edged flat screwdriver to pry open the top of the dryer. It just pops up, and then you can see the switch down on the right side where the wires are coming from, and it should be plugged in to the feed wires coming from the back of the dryer. Don't concern yourself with this part yet. Its all self-explanatory when you see it. Let me know if you need further assistance. If so, please send me the make and model also - that way I can guide you directly to the problem. Good Luck, and I hope this works for you. - Jim
