Fly, sounds like you blew the thermal fuse. This is located on the front blower. You will need to remove door by removing the two screws and lifting up on the hinge. Remove the 2 spacers on the other side of the door. Now the panel will pull out and the blower will be exposed. The fuse will look like the one on the right of the attached picture....Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Maytag neptune dryer won't start

Hey all neptune stricken owners - I removed the circuit board which was darkened substantially in the resistor area, but the maytag repairman got no money this time!! . . . And the cold is no longer the problem it has been for the past couple of years. We replaced the 3 main capacitors(blue) and the cluster of four resistors(brown) - and voila - the dryer works like new!!! It only cost a few bucks ($.67, $.92 etc etc) as opposed to the $151 a new board was going to cost!

Sounds like you thru the breaker. If not, it is the door switch.

No power


First place to check is the door switch...it works the light inside, but it is also a safety switch... the door has to be closed for the dryer to recieve power... if the switch isn't "clicking" when you press it by hand or with the door shut, then it's most likely the switch. try this first... let me know what you find out..

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start button


My Hotpoint dryer is seven years old and did the exact same thing. When I got over the anger and the thought of spending 4 or 5 hundred dollars to replace it I started messing with it. I finally decided that since it buzzed when I tried to start it there was current there. The only other thing it could be was the drying cycle knob.
I held the start knob and let it buzz while I slowly turned the dryer cycle knob to the right. As I turned through each cycle it would hit "off" and the buzzing would stop and then resume as I moved past the "off " setting. On the third trip around the dryer "started" and has been working since. Maybe something got out of kilter. Apparently the problem was in the knob that controls the drying cycles.

Maytag dryer sdg515daww stopped working.


I assume this is Gas dryer from the model number having a G.
The door switch may cause the problem. If its not running the dryer thinks the door is open? And the light will also stay off. You can jump around the wires on the door switch and see if it works then if so its switch time.

I don't think a thermal fuse should have anything to do with the light. But that's not a bad idea for quick trouble shooting if a manufacturer would do it. Use a volt meeter to verify the voltage you may have enough for the timer to make noise but not enough to make it turn and the dryer to run.

If there is power then try rotating the tub slightly. The motor may have stuck. Don't turn it too far unless you know which way the drum turns. and try alkways to turn it that direction. Keeps your belts on.

If this helped you please rate me accordingly and good luck.
