Door switch or possibly the motor. if you hold the door switch in and push the start button have someone turn the drum by hand if it starts running it is the motor

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post I understand you have a Whirlpool dryer that you stated "
set the timer and press the start button, you can hear the timer running but, the drum doesn't and the heating elements don't heat", correct ?

Having said that, by far and away the most common and the first thing I'd look for on these dryers is the fuse which is located on the blower housing, not likely the timer or start switch.

**Unplug the dryer from the wall before performing any service or removing any panels...safety first**

You can use the link below for a tutorial video to locate, test and replace the fuse that is specific to your model.

**please check the part with an ohm meter or "jump it out" (if you know how, if not, check the second link it will show you) before replacing it...the timer or start switch is possible, just not as likely as I mentioned**

Maytag Gas Dryer has power (light is on), but when I push the Start Button, nothing happens. The Dryer is a Maytag MGD5570, just under 4 years old. I checked the Thermal Fuse with a continuity tester and...


I had the same problem. Here's a quick test you need to do. It will take two individuals (unless you're extremely talented) Open the dryer door and push in the door switch... and hold it in. Have the other person push on (and hold) the start button on the console. At that same time everyone is pushing the switches take a free hand and reach into the dryer and try to spin it. Sometimes just a little push (assistance) is all it takes and..... bingo the dryer starts up! If that's the case... your motor is on its way out or it's gone. Usually due to the bearings on the motor being badly worn.

When dryer is started the timer can be heard and if the door switch is activated, the heating element will heat, but the drive motor does nothing. belt is ok


try holding the door button, have someone push the start button and you spin the tub at the same time. If it starts, it is most likely the start capacitor on the motor. If it does not start, look at door button, start switch/button, and lastly, the timer.
