Try checking your fuse box or circuit breaker panel first.The dryer requires 2-30 amp fuses to operate normally...replace both fuses instead of gussing which 1 is bad. OR, the dryer uses a double pole 30 amp circuit breaker...Flip it to OFF then back to ON. Then try your dryer and if it works you can send me flowers...just kidding! If it doesn't work, write me back and we will do some more soul searching.

Clothes dryer does not work when power turned on at wall. Sounder goes continuously, no lights on panel and panel buttons do nothing


If it didn't do that before removing the capacitor & wires then I would assume it is something you have done wrong. Maybe put a wire back in wrong place. There is a wiring diagram on back of dryer. Motor not starting could be the capacitor, you really need to test it with a capacitor tester. It may also be the motor bearings seizing up. If motor is tight to turn when belt is off then it will be time for a new dryer. Too expensive to replace the motor on such an old dryer.

Turn on power, the lights come on but when you press start nothing happens just a click sound.


Click sound at power button and start button should get it going. If not then Dryer drum is not turning.

Dryer won't turn


The problem is likely a slipping dryer belt. The belt tensioner is not working or the belt needs replacing.

Dryer clicks when start button pushed but does not start.


A quarter was lodged on the thermal fuse , located below the lint screen on the blower exhaust housing, on our dryer. Remove the front lower panel , 2 screw, and you'll see 2 fuses. I suspect that our control board is burnt.

Maytag electric dryer when i set dial to desired setting i here a humming sound prior to pushing start button it has never done this before also the clothes is VERY hot when i take it out model ...


it sounds like a shorted heater element, this would also cause the heat to stay on at 110 volts which would make the clothes very hot since the element doesn't completely shut down. if it is a loud hum it could be a stuck motor switch but in this case the dryer usually won't start.
