One or both of the thermal fuses are blown. These thermal fuses are wired in series with the motor and the motor will not run if one or both of them are blown. Verify this condition by bypassing both of the thermal fuses then starting the dryer.

Disconnect power then open the dryer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

Refer to the parts diagrams and locate the thermal fuse on the blower housing and the thermal fuse on the heater housing.

    Disconnect the wires from thermal fuse on the blower housing then connect them together. Insulate the connection properly then close the door firmly and reconnect power. Start the dryer and if it runs, then the thermal fuse is blown. Replace it along with the cycling thermostat. But if the dryer still doesn't run, disconnect power and reconnect the wires back to the thermal fuse terminals then do the bypass with the thermal fuse on the heater housing as with the thermal fuse on the blower housing. Reconnect power and start the dryer. If it runs, then the thermal fuse is blown. Replace it along with the high-limit thermostat. But if the dryer still doesn't run, disconnect power and bypass both of the thermal fuses. Replace both thermal fuse along with the thermostats if the dryer runs.

MY MAYTAG MDE9700AYW WILL NOT TURN ON


Are you getting power at the console? Also, check to see if one of the breakers has not tripped. Dryer runs on 220v and you may have tripped one breaker that will show power to the unit but won't let it start.

Dryer willnot heat


heating eliment is most likely burned out. Better off getting new dryer. But if that is not an option then call a repair person that can replace the heating element.

You need to do a continuity check on the dryer cord. Also manually reset the breakers and make sure you have power (both legs). After this and you still have trouble, do a continuity test on the door switch. The door switch will keep a dryer from operating. After that, you will need to check that your motor is being called to come on. Also check the capacitor and that it is reading the correct microfarad's with in 5%.

Unplug the unit and take off the cover where the cord goes in. You may have one burnt wire under that cover.
