Maytag Electric Dryer Stopped Working

Maytag dryer stopped working (model SDE30DAYW - electric). Worked fine, dried a load of clothes, put the next load in and it won't start. Dryer light works when door is open. Checked circuit breakers and that's fine.

    Jiggled the slot where the door tab connects to the dryer (used a paperclip), held the botton in that turns off the light (to simulate the dryer door is closed) and pressed "start" - works like a charm!!! Saved met LOTS of $$ for the service call - THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

Yes! This also solved my problem. Closed the door pushing it where the switch is. Pressed a little extra hard. Dryer started working. Brilliant! But shame on Maytag and other American manufacturers for the garbage they make these days.

Our Maytag Centennial Electric dryer is not cycling in auto dry mode but will in timer mode. Any thoughts?


There is a sensor that the clothes have to touch when the drum spins. This sensor measures how wet the clothes are. If you don't have enough of a load in the dryer then the sensor wont detect the dryness. Or it could be a bad sensor or connection or main board.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Electric dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms that you may experience with your dryer:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
There's no heat
It won't tumble
Drying is too slow
It overheats
It seems to run forever
It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker
My clothes smell bad!
My clothes are marked or torn

Our dryer stopped heating up and will not dry clothes


tif it is most likley the element has gone bad they usually cost about 45 dollars and if you can find a friend to help you replace it its not that hard best bet is to call a used appliance store they usually have them new and in stock do not try going to the manufacture they will charge you double for the same exact part

Either the control board or the humidity sensor is bad.

Dryer is not heating air


Sounds like the heating element or coil is out, but it could also be the board to. At any rate, if your not getting any heat what so ever, its more than likely electrical and its best to take it in. If it gets some kind of heat, then you might try cleaning out your dryer vents really good, and also in the dryer. Hope this helps.

Maytag Dryer Working Fine Stops Working


Take off the top of the dryer and you will find somewhere near or at the drum a fuse. Try bypassing it first to see if it works. If so, go get one for about $10.00. There may be a wire that has burned off at the connection in the back of the dryer also.
