Dryer continues to run when I open the dryer door.


The door lock is more than just a latch; it is an electrical interlock. From your description it is likely that the interlock has failed

I would suggest that you try our Premium Service, as this type of issue is too lengthy to accomodate, when you have no training in electrical/mechanical theory. An expert will be able to talk you through the disassembly to reassembly, diagnostic, safety, procedures. This is guaranteed service assistance.

You can request me or any other qualified technician.

Thank you,

Maytag Electric Dryer Stopped Working


Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning
