Start button will click but won't start


Hello. Your model dryer has a service flash on the lower door strike/catch concerning not staying closed or not closing properly. If the door is allowed to open too much, the door switch will not be closed and the dryer won't run. The part number for the new kit is 279570 and it includes 2 door strikes and several catches. You choose the ones you need. However, if the door *is* closing properly, you can put the unit in diagnostic mode(door closed, all indicators off) by pressing/holding any button *except* stop for 2 seconds, then releasing, press/hold 2 sec, release, press/hold 2 seconds, release-- all the indicator lights will light for 5 seconds, and an 8 88 will be shown in the display. If there are *no* active fault codes, the indicators will momentarily turn off and then stay on with the 8 88 displayed. If there is an active fault code, it will be flashing in the display. (ex. would be an "F" and "xx" where "xx" would be a number.) If you press the same button you originally pressed once, then again, then again, the most recent code will be displayed, then the next, and so on up to 4 stored codes. To turn off diagnostic mode, just press stop. I hope this helps you!

I opened the dryer door to put in a load of clothes and the light inside flashed and went off. power comes on, i can set to the drying time, but when i press start i get 3 short quick beeps...no error


It sounds like maybe the switch that recognizes your door is closed my be bad or out of adjustment. Look for a 3/8" to 1/2" opening on the face of the surface that the dryer door meets. There may be a small plate that acts as the actuator. It may also be a small rod sticking out that gets pushed in by the door. Either way, try to actuate it with your hand or screwdriver with the door open and press the start button and see if that works. If not you'll possibly have to take the dryer apart to get at the switch. If you're comfortable with using basic tools this can be done and you just need to be patient while doing it. Test the switch if you have an ohmeter to see if it works. An ohm reading is fairly simple to do and meters cost less than $30 at a Home Depot. Don't get intimidated by their dials and number readouts. (O.L. = Open, 0 ohms = closed) If the switch doesnt change states it's bad and you'll need to search the p/n on the switch in Google. Someone on Ebay or other sites will likely sell these switches for $5 or less. Hope this helps.

Maytag Performa dryer blows fuse after clothes get hot. I cleaned a large buildup of lint from inside the dryer all the way to my roof. I then replaced the hi limit thermostat, thermal fuse and dryer...


Hello,
their are two possiblities causing that

1) while cleaning the lint from the motor a wire accidently got pulled of of the motor switch

2) to me the buzzing when start button is pushed and may or may not start,the motor is bad

When trying the trick to start the motor by hand the door switch also must be pressed in

Maytag Bravo 400 series won't start. I click the start button and it beeps but nothing happens.


Hi there,

Well first of all you can check door switch - If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. The door switch is a simple on / off switch to indicate whether the dryer's door is open or closed. The dryer will not operate when the door is open. If your dryer runs with the door open, the switch may shorted closed or there may be a dangerous electrical short in your dryer. If your dryer will not start when you press the start button and you hear no sounds, the door switch may be the problem. 

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

My dryer was working. I stopped it to take my clothes. When I went to put in the wet clothes my dryer would not start.


Try pressing on the door to close it and
see if it starts. It sounds like the door switch has failed or the actuating arm is bent. You should hear a click as the door just barely opens or is nearly closed. No click = no start. I.e. Door switch problem.

My dryer stopped working. Dryed a load of clothes


Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top rightof door opening. If it is not there you will need new doorswitch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and doesnot click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicksand clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuseis an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519
