Question about Maytag MDE9700AYM Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Hello: I have a Maytag MDE9700AYM that was purchased three years ago but has been installed for less than one year. After the unit runs for 10-20 minutes, the circuit breakers trips off. Otherwise the unit fuctions well. I have checked to make sure the vent hose is not obstructed or kinked. The unit is installed in a home that is less than one year old, so I am assuming the problem is not with the circuit breaker itself. Please help. Thanks, Chuck

It's possibly the circuit breaker rather than the dryer itself. Usually when it trips, it is overloaded or shorted. Overload can be a result of a loose connection or a bad heating element,when you remove the old breaker, see if it has some noticeable burn/corrosion marks where the wire is screwed down, I think replacing the breaker will fix the problem. Hope this helped Tim

Sorry you are having an issue. Have you tried another charger? If so and it still doesn't work. CONTACT US . If you have proof of purchase that it was purchased new less than year ago then we'll replace it.

Sounds like you have a bad compressor, something is either shorted out, or drawing too much power causing your breaker to trip.

Is this a window unit, or a ductless unit?

If your dishwasher is less than a year old, it's possible you still are covered by the manufacturers warranty. If you still contain your date of purchase, it's possible you can call for LG OEM service.

The screen is starting to distort and the colors are running together at the top of the screen, Unit is 5 years old


The LCD screen or the graphics driver circuitry has failed. Either way, the unit is effectively unrepairable as it's long past it's maximum design lifespan of three years and so parts and labour will be prohibitive.

Time to update to a new receiver unfortunately, but at least it will also come with a fresh warranty, longer battery life, easier user interface and up to date mapping. In real terms it will also probably cost less than you paid five years ago.

Maytag Dehumidifer still works, but is leaking


Well life span is 3-15 years depends how long and hard you run them. 45 pint is about 1000sqft basment. rule of thumbs bigger better. run less and do a better job. I would start by filling the bucket and place in a dry shower see if you have a crack. cant find a source for the bucket discontinued this might be your problem. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-M7DH45B2A-%3d%3di1025984&PartID=1025984 Repair cost are about 40-50 and hour!!!! good luck

Will run but won't take moisture out of the air


Fedders, the maker of the maytag dehumidifier, went bankrupt and they are not honoring the warranties. call this number and if it is still under warranty, they will send you a prorated check for the remainder of your warranty. 1-866-629-8241. we had two months to go on our warranty and they gave us $14 and change.

Lint marks left on clothing


hello are you washing new items new items tend to create more lint within the first few washes check all pockets to see if there is anything left in them there maybe to much wash action for the size and type of load try selecting a less aggressive wash cycle
