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.

Doesnt dry clothes, every opening i have unclogged,even outside vent is clear.basket rolls but heat is room temp. no matter what setting.


Hi, I experienced the same problem with my Maytag electric dryer. I finally fixed the problem after I checked the actual vent pipe (which allows air to discharge to the outside of your home). What I found was quite surprising. I found was a mouse nesyt in this pipe. Once I removed the mouse next,m my electric dryer worked fine. Just a thought. Good Luck!

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

Maytag electric dryer (PYE2300AYW) does not stop on auto cycle.


Either the control board or the humidity sensor is bad.

Dryer willnot heat


heating eliment is most likely burned out. Better off getting new dryer. But if that is not an option then call a repair person that can replace the heating element.

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.
