One of two things, either the compositor is bad or the motor is bad. If you have a multimeter you can check the compasitor and see if it is making the proper amount of volts if it is then the motor is bad

    The reason that I am saying that is because you have power going everywhere else, which means that the compasitor and the motor are getting power. So 99% of the time the humming noise that you are hearing comes from the motor that has siezed and is not spinning anymore

My Maytag dryer will not not turn the drum. The red light (more or less dry time sensor light) come on. I relaced the door switch. I do not get a beep. What else could be wrong? MDE6000AYW


Hi godinae...
If you hear you motor running then it sounds like you have a broken drum belt...you will need to replace it or have it replaced.
If you do not hear the motor running then it could be the motor or control panel if you have one.

Maytag Neptune MDE5500AYW panel lights work but not dryer


inside the control panel is a tech sheet that has some diagnostics on it . there is a membrane button test or something to that effect. I suspect that the start/pause button is the problem and you would need to replace the console w/touchpad.about $130-140 new. there are some used ones on ebay.

When the light switch in the freezer goes out (by me holding the the switch in or by closing the door) there is a noise that comes from the ice maker. Turn the light on, it stops. Any ideas? The noise is a...


The door switch is designed to turn off the dispenser control when the door is open and the light comes on. Pressing the switch with the door open turns on the dispenser controls and the sounds of relays and solenoid coils would be normal unless it is affecting your dispenser or ice maker.

Gas Dryer does not run, light comes on in drum, everything else is dead.


do you mean it doesn't heat or does not run at all. i would check the door switch, if its not running at all. try opening the door and push the door switch closed by hand, if the light doesn't go out replace the switch
