Dryer needs a new motor. I changed the thermal fuse and the dryer worked for a minute then stopped without the ability to restart.

Sounds like you have a blown thermal fuse. This happens when you have a restricted/blocked exhaust vent. Jump/bypass it, if it works make sure to clear exhaust vent or it will blow again.

Admiral dryer won't turn on or start


It could be a broken door switch. With the door open, look for the plastic tab that comes through the dryer frame. this is the switch. If it is broken, you know what the problem is. If not, depress the tab and carefully try to start the dryer. If it starts, then it is not your problem. I have changed two before. very simple.

Admiral dryer wont come on


That is a bad sign. If the buzzing starts when you press the start button and stops when you release its almost safe to say that the motor has a dead short or grounded out and causing that to happen. You can check the start switch by getting a multimeter and with the dryer unplugged take the wires off the switch, place a lead on each pin and press the start with meter set for continuity. If it shows continuity when presed and stops when released your motor is shot and needs to be replaced

If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

I have a maytag admiral dryer (ade7000ayw) stopped working over tonight? It's plugged in and the outlet has power.


The thermal fuse is what the problem very likely is. It is located on the side of the heater housing on the upper part of the back wall of rear drum support. To check it UNPLUG DRYER,remove the 2 white wires on the right side of where the heat element goes and check the thermal fuse for continuty (zero ohms resistiance) using a meter set to measure ohms of resistiance
