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

SOURCE: Dryer not turning off when clothes are dry (model LDE 400ACL)

Normally if you have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry, it will do it with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a "pre-set" temperature.
When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. If there is a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough. The timer advances until the interior cools, then the termostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But... if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix this problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork and make sure the vent is not compressed or kinked. If that doesn't work, then your thermostat, moisture sensor or timer could be the culprit.

SOURCE: Moisture inside dryer door when clothes are

your dryer vent is probably plugged up and needs to be cleaned or the vent hose behind the dryer is kinked.

SOURCE: Maytag Bravos Steam dryer that reads service error code F1

F01 - There may be an internal problem with the control, attempt a Hard Reset.

Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:

* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
* Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet.
* Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.
* Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

The F01 generally indicates a failed electronic machine control board.
This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines.
You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes.
If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.

The procedure for accessing and replacing this control board is shown in this image...

Be sure to unplug the washer before accessing internal components.
When you access the control board, I recommend transferring the wires from the old control board to the new replacement control board one connection at a time.
Once you have all of the wires transferred, remove the old control board and mount the new control board in the washer.
Reassemble and test the washer.

The "F01" error code indicates a communication error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the EEPROM onboard the CCU.
The "F01" can also be displayed if the onboard "Pump Driver" fails to activate.
Generally in order to correct this failure will require replacing the CCU.
There is no way to test and verify if the control board has failed.
The technical data sheet basically states to replace the CCU.

Need to change belt on maytag dryer but dont know how to do it on this model . any help would be great


Get the Model number and order a Dryer Maint Kit from either of these sites.
http://www.partselect.com/
http://www.repairclinic.com/

If you have the belt already then open the dryer door and there should be a couple screws in the opening where the door normally closes at the top. Remove those and then the door should be able to completely come off then you will have access to the belt area.
Good Luck!

There is a front panel seal ($3.11) and a door seal ($3.20) that you can replace. If the hinges are not worn out, these two parts should fix the dryer. If you go to www.appliancepartspro.com and enter your model number, you will see every part inside your dryer. you can order the parts from this site also.

When you open the door to check if the clothes are dry, the dryer keeps tumbling even with the door open.


This is commonly caused by a door switch that is shorted. The switch is located in the door frame opening and is activated (or closed) by a push button when the door is closed. This will enable the drive motor and heating circuits when the start button is pushed. When the door is opened, the switch no longer makes contact and the drive motor and heating circuits shut off. I would recommend checking to see if the push button the switch is just stuck (pushed in). You may have to replace the switch to correct the problem. If you would post your COMPLETE model number (located somewhere around the door opening) I can look to see how this switch is installed and any parts necessary to replace it. i hope this helps you.
