Maytag frontload dryer

My dryer just won't come on. The light is on when I open the door but won't turn on at all. I checked the breaker but not tripped. Flipped it off and on anyway. Plug seems fine. Vent not clogged. I had completed a load a few hours earlier with no issues. Any ideas what the problem is?

Does the maytag dryer have a reset button. The dryer was working fine then just stopped turning on.


No, they typically don't have a reset button. But they do have safety switches which can fail. Usually there is a microswitch on the door. When the door is open the dryer won't start. Do you have power at all to the dryer? Do any lights light up? If not, you may have tripped your circuit breaker to the dryer and need to reset them. Typically there will be two breaker switches tied together to move as one in your power panel for your house or apartment. If you are not sure the breaker has tripped, it won't hurt anything to switch them off and then back on again. If this does not help, you likely have a failed switch or relay in the dryer that will need to be replaced. Also check that your lint trap does not have a switch which will prevent to dryer from running if you have too much lint in it.

I have a maytag gas dryer mgdx500xw, with door open and light on, circuit breaker blows, with door closed it does not, if I remove the bulb, it won't blow either way. Weird?


the return neutral wire from the bulb has to have a bare spot on it touching the metallic case somewhere in the dryer,when you remove the bulb you just isolate the bare spot on the neutral wire from the hot wire

Kenmore dryer 70 series 66722690 - has power but won't start (no humming noise, no ticking noise from timer, and no light when you open door) nothing!


I would check the breaker before you go any further. Here are some things to remember when you do this. 1) The breaker for the dryer is generally located outside on the side of the house somewhere near the electric meter. Most 220vac breakers are, which include any electric range, cooktop, wall oven, etc. 2) When your checking the breaker, actually physically touch it. Sometimes breakers can trip a but the spring that actually pulls the breaker to off position is weak and by visual inspection would appear on. Just simply reach in and tap the bar lightly in the off direction. If it pops over to the off position, turn it back on then go check your dryer. If the breaker passes inspection, I would unplug the machine because there migfht be a short at the terminal block where the plug connects to the dryer. After you've unplugged it, remove the back and check to see if everything is ok. I have a strong feeling that you won't need to get to this point cause I'm betting on breaker.

Dryer stopped running in the middle of drying cycle. Circuit breaker was checked and reset. The light inside dryer will not turn on when door is open.


check that you have power coming to dryer...check for burnt wires going into cord area...it also could have blown your thermal fuse. its best to have a electrical tester to check componants

Maytag dryer stopped working (model LDE9334ACE - electric). Dryer light DOES NOT work when door is open. Checked circuit breakers and that's fine.


Check your timer switch, that would cause you light not to work.
Also check the bulb, it may be burned out.
I hope this helps

MY MAYTAG DRYER DOES NOT WORK WHEN I TRY TO START IT. THE LIGHT TURNS ON WHEN I OPEN THE DOOR HOWEVER. THE DRYER IS 4 YEARS OLD.


try this first: 
  • turn off the dryer circuit breaker in the house then turn it back on. sometimes the dual breaker will trip on only one side leaving you with a non functioning machine that seems to have power.
  • also check the door switch and make sure it is clicking when you slowly close the door.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

Maytag Electric Dryer Stopped Working


Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning
