Question about Maytag MED5600TQ Electric Dryer

Open Question

My Maytag MED5600TQ0 will only come on in the wrinkle prevent mode. It comes on for the standard time frame in wrinkle prevent (cool down) after waiting for the delay to pass. If I attempt to start it in any other mode nothing happens. I have tested the push start switch, thermal fuses, I trouble shot the timer/ main control from the electrical diagram. Everything seems to test out ok. Could it be the switching mechanism on the motor? I had a hard time testing the motor. What an I missing?

SOURCE: maytag dryer won't turn on

Hi, The first thing to check is the thermal safety located in the back. UNPLUG the dryer. emove the rear panel and locate the fuse on the blower housing middle left. It is white and in 1/4" wide and 3" long with twowire going to it. You can test continuity to it. If it has continuity, it is ok. This is
the most common problem. If II can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

SOURCE: Maytag Performa Dryer will not start....

Hi West!

Yeah... I know what's happening. Pull all the tape and reconnect all those wires, OK? The problem lies in the thermal overload. It's located on the heater can and below the element terminals. See it down there? It has 2 white wires going to it. When this thing blows, it shuts the whole machine down.

Here's the thing, OK? This is a high limit thermal overload and when this thing trips off, it means that there's another problem... specifically an air flow/ventilation problem. So you can jump out the overload to verify my diagnosis, but don't leave it like that. Google: Dryer fires and check out the video about half way down.

So... yeah, you could jump it and make your dryer work... but you have another issue to deal with after that. Your vent is clogged. Call a chimney sweep or a duct cleaning service to get all that stuff outta there.

Seriously... when your ventilation is obstructed there is a very serious fire hazard present. Please clean your duct work.

SOURCE: Model MEDB850WQ0 Will not display time or start.

Hi

Please check this diagram ....if you have already tested part no 41(thermal fuse), part no 47(thermal cut off), part no 48(thermostat) and part no 51(thermister) and all of them have continuity then either wiring harness to the board is bad or the control board (part no 3 in this diagram) itself is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

SOURCE: how to fix maytag med5600TQ0 dryer

You have not mentioned the fault on the dryer as it can be due to no power, a fault in power supply , no program a suspected controller and also no rotation , a possible motor , relay or controller fault.
Also if there is no heating check the continuity of the heater coils. if open heater is faulty , if not there no voltage from the controller.

Samsung front loading dryer the display shows rotating circle rather than time remaining


Rotating blinking lights in the display is probably an indication that the Wrinkle Prevent option has been selected. Wrinkle Prevent will continue to tumble the dryer without heat after the cycle has ended to help prevent wrinkles from setting in. When this option is selected by pressing the Wrinkle Prevent button on the control panel, the display will count down the estimated cycle time; when the cycle ends, the display will show lights blinking in a circular (or actually rectangular) motion.

To deactivate, simply press the Wrinkle Prevent button again so the light is not illuminated.

on other setting the machine is stopping the heat and putting the machine into a cool down or air fluff mode

Switches to wrinkle release and changes to 18 on display.


Check the vent coming out the back. It may be plugged up not alowwing proper airflow. You might just unhook it for one load to see if that is the problem.

Wrinkles!!!!!!!!


This is a frequent complaint with the following known  solutions:
  • You might be drying them too long. back the time down so that the cool down cycle happens right as the clothes are dried. 
  • Try smaller loads.
  • You should dry heavy fabrics and light fabrics separately.
  • Fabric softener in the washer may help to prevent wrinkles from forming in the dryer.

Problem when drying gets to 1 minute mark


This is happening when you selected the wrinkle prevent option or you set it to wrinkle release cycle.what it does is it is tumbling with no heat to release the wrinkle in the clothing. This is normal.It could also be normal part of drying in "regular" cycle
