Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Maytag dryer wouldn't start. Model number is: mde9700ayw. Problem: Although dryer was set to warm/cold dryer dried the clothes on extreme high temperature. For the second load of clothes, dryer couldn't start. I replaced the control board where all control knobs are (I had spare which I had previously purchased from you) but the problem still exists-dryer wouldn't start. Is it possible to be the other mother board since when I try to turn on the dryer I just hear this clicking noises coming from relays/connectors as if the dryer wants to start running? Thank you!

HELLO THERE
I would have the board tested first and if it does indeed test out good than please try these things.

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. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)
Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

My dryer keeps blowing the thermal fuse help


Check your lint filter, exhaust duct, and check if duct flapper is opening fully or not. Allow some time between loads and don't stuff too many clothes.

Maytag Dryer and FE code means power source "Frequency Error".
Invalid power... you will need a electrican to come out the power is not wired up right.

The felt liner in the dryer came off and now it is making a thumping noise and we noticed some small oil spots on the cloths


I have a Maytag dryer, MDE9700AYW, and the felt liner at the front of the inside of the drum has torn away, at least most of it has. It take approximate 2 hours to dry a load of clothing. I cannot find the part number or the name of the part. I spoke with an appliance repair shop and they are unfamiliar with the felt liner. Can someone assist with obtaining a name, part #, and resolution?

Thanks,

Anthony

Yes it can be a gas dryer. If you have a electric dryer now though you can not convert to gas. If the dryer is set for propane the it can be converted to gas buy a licensed plumber or appliance repair man.

Good Luck
