Question about Maytag Centennial 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Plus Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer Tunrs on and runs with no heat and timer never moves

My maytag dryer will turn and run, but there is no heat and the timer never moves from where you set it to start out at. Is it the heating element that has gone bad, or can a timer go out and cause the dryer to act this way?

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

The dryer runs but does not turn off i replaced the timer did not solve problem. the timer moves but on the last minute it does not shut off


I would guess venting may be restricted, remove vent tube and run dryer see if it turns off. I did find some information on a different site, here is the link, Good Luck Tim:

My maytag dependable care plus electric dryer doesn't shut off


Does the timer move when it's almost ready to shut off if not most likely need a timer. Can you turn it by hand to finish the cycle and shut it off. If not must be timer.
Hope this helps

Maytag Dryer timer keeps running


I have looked at your dryer schematic. The only thing that moves the timer forward towards the end of cycle is the timer motor. You are going to need a new timer, looks like they have one for 54 bucks HERE

I have a maytag dryer and when you start it the timer doesn't move - it will run for hours unless you stop it. now when you pull the knob to start it doesn't respond


Sounds like the problem is in your timer contacts, in which case you would have to replace your timer. A no heat scenario on auto dry could also cause a dryer to run continuously.

Hope this helps _MJ_

A - Things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:
- house fuse or breaker ( needs two of them ), heating element, burnt wire, thermostat(s), thermal fuse ( not all models ), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug.
A ohm meter test for these parts is here.

Maytag dryer PYE3300AYW Continuously runs


jefo, it sounds to me like your timer is not advancing. Does it move at all or stay in place? In what you are saying it will stop when you turn it to off, I would think it could be the timer that is the problem. Part # 53-1810.
