Question about Maytag Dryers

Open Question

My Maytag DE303 electric dryer, age unknown but greater than 10 years, suddenly stopped working yesterday. The electric switch on the top front of the dryer rotates but no longer "clicks" when it is pushed to turn the motor on. I think the switch may be broken, but I can't find the replacement part for it. The switch box has "Model M400G" on the inside top. Is that the replacement part number?

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.

first check and make sure the power breaker is on. next the door when it closes there is a safety switch normaly there is a small hole around the frame of the door. when you push on it, you shoud hear a clicking noise. if you don"t, that switch will prevent the tumbler from turning another thing is the belt that goes around the tumbler if it's loose or broken the tumbler will not turn. that can be checked by accessing the bottom panel in the back the belt should be tight. good luck!

Dryer was working fine. It's between 5 and 10 years old. Suddenly stopped heating. Model #HYG3658AWW Rev 14


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

10 year old Kenmore dryer Series 80 suddenly has stopped producing heat. Vent is clean. What else can I try?


On a gas model dryer those coils seem to die when heated when they have a little age on em. So if the ignitor works and the dryer does a little bit of heating then fails and it is gas then those coils are the problem. On an electric model the element will get brittle with age and die but if your dryer is suffering from air restrictions it may have had a limit trip on it.

While drying clothes yesterday the dryer stopped halfway through. There was only about 10 or so shirts. When I noticed it had stopped I opened the door and reshut it, but the dryer wouldn't work anymore....


you may have a defective timer, or worse a defective motor. the door switch may also be defective, you require a basic knowledge of motors switches and timers, and require a volt/ ohm meter to diagnose properly

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.

Maytag electric dryer over heats


I repaired one of these yesterday. I started by poping the top0883dcc.jpg
I removed the front by getting the screws out from inside that hold the front on. I unhooked the lid switch and got the front out of the way. Guess what I found? A big ball of lint right in front of the blower. The whole filter housing was full of lint!. To make matters worse the blower was loose!. So I used my super duty shop vac to clean it up and I replaced the fuse(mounted next to heat element)yes it was blown because of the lint ball. 3e11794.jpg
