Question about Maytag MDE9700AYM Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer got really hot - would not start again. Ck breakers; OK - Unplugged dryer- re-plugged. would not start. Had power - all lights working. Repairman replaced a 'fuse' down in the front of dryer(and I had a service clean the vent pipe). Did 1 load, worked fine - did second load, left it for a while, so wanted to air fluff - unit would not turn on- same scenario. Was the part defective, or did the repairman not install it correctly?

Ck. power cord at dryer side and make sure the ends are not burnt. Unplugged of course.

If all is ok call for service.

Dryer is runing but not getting hot. What could


First check is to reset the twin breakers for the dryer in the house electrical panel--push off, then on. If the dryer now heats, you are home free. If not, measure the voltage (should be ~230 volts AC) across the two slanted slots in the dryer power socket. If nothing, leave the dryer unplugged and reset the breakers again. Try measuring the voltage again--if still nothing, you have a failed breaker (one is still good) or a broken/loose wire between the breaker and the power socket (contact an electrician to check that out and repair). If you measure the required voltage, then you have a problem within the dryer--usually the heating element is open or the thermostat or high temp safety thermostat is bad. Usually, the drum must be removed to repair the heater. Good luck!

Maytag 3000 Series front load gas dryer (Whirlpool) - No lights, no digital display, not able to turn on or start. Yes, unit is plugged in to AC outlet. Yes, AC voltage is good at 120V. Yes, circuit...


OK everyone, my ears are red. Over the weekend, I gave this another shot, since my warranty repair appointment isn't until next week.

I opened the dryer door (the drum light is off, indicating no power at all) and went to the circuit breaker box, and flipped the washer/dryer breaker back to off and then re-set the breaker again.

When I got to the laundry room - the drum light was on!

So I powered up the unit, and ran the machine. It ran for about one minute, and then went off. So I went back and re-set the breaker again.

Visually, the breakers did NOT LOOK tripped - but flipping the thing off and then on to re-set the breaker worked.

This time, the dryer is working fine. The bad part is: I need to replace the breaker for the second time. So this is NOT a defective dryer, it is a bad electrical supply. I will call the electrician back to make him fix this right. . . . .

Thanks again for all who responded. This is a new unit, purchased on 7/7/2009.

Dryer trips breaker as soon as i try to start it.


Use or borrow a volt ohm meter and check for a grounded hot wire. You may also be exceeding the start up load on the 20 amp breaker. Test this theory (after you make sure that there are no ground faults) by starting the dryer in a "air fluff" mode without heat. If the dryer starts in the "no heat mode", switch the heat on - if you blow the breaker you know that the 20 amp breaker cannot handle it. Before you do any of the above - check your dryer manual for the service requirments. If you don't have the manual go to the mfg. web site and download it.

Everything was working fine, now we get no panel lights, the dryer light doesn't, dead in the water! Checked the plug...unplugged it and plugged it back in. Checked the circuit breaker...ok. What next?

I'm sorry to tell you that you need hands on service.
