    Is the auto-dry sensor and the control thermostat located behind the top housing where all the controls are? The origional timer was replaced because it would not pull out and turn on anymore.
    Thanks

It would help to know why you replaced the original timer.
Otherwise,you should unplug the dryer,take your wiring diagram and re-check every wire for accuracy.
Take a volt meter after you resume power and start the dryer. Carefully touch the meter leads to the 2 timer wire leads to make sure the timer is getting power.
A bad auto-dry sensor and or a bad control thermostat will stop the timer from advancing.

    Copy and paste this Factory Service manual.
    While your model number is not listed all checks and component locations are the same as your model.
    The control thermostat is located on the blower housing..

Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AYW timer has been replaced but the dryer won't stop drying on it's own. What is the reason? I have the same problem... the timer on mine doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?


The wire connections to the timer may have not been made correctly when it was replaced bypassing the OFF contact in the control circuit.  There should be a wiring diagram inside the front or back panel that you can check.

Dryer won't start when knob is pulled.


If you push the knob to the left and it makes a good contact and starts the machine, then replace the timer switch. Write down the Name and Model Number of the machine (usually on or below the door)
take it to a local appliance shop and order a new part. When you recieve the new part UNPLUG the machine and remove the three screws from of the top of the electrical compartment and gently pull o the front open, there is only one plug attached to the switch, remove it and dislodge the old switch, then snap the new switch in place and replace the plug, close the compartment and replace the three screws, plug in the dryer, and try it.

Replacing Timer on Maytag Atlantis Dryer


Call a local appliance shop and ask about it. Maytag is pretty common and available. The timer will be about 75 dollars. It could be more depending on what all you have on it. It is pretty easy to replace once you get to it. Let me know how this turns out.

I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.

Hard to start dryer, control know loose/misaligned


your saying that pulling the timer knob out, which normally starts dryer, does nothing. however if you pull out and apply pressure upwards on knob and touch nothing else, the dryer will start??? if the thats the case sounds like a short in the timer mechanism , youll need to replace the timer assy
