Door is ajar message when shut light comes on but doesnt run


That's because the door switch isn't getting pushed when you're closing the dryer door for some reason or another. Its located at the top of the door. Try pushing the switch by hand and seeing if the light shuts off when you manually push it.

Maytag Performa dryer blows fuse after clothes get hot. I cleaned a large buildup of lint from inside the dryer all the way to my roof. I then replaced the hi limit thermostat, thermal fuse and dryer...


Hello,
their are two possiblities causing that

1) while cleaning the lint from the motor a wire accidently got pulled of of the motor switch

2) to me the buzzing when start button is pushed and may or may not start,the motor is bad

When trying the trick to start the motor by hand the door switch also must be pressed in

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

Gas Dryer does not run, light comes on in drum, everything else is dead.


do you mean it doesn't heat or does not run at all. i would check the door switch, if its not running at all. try opening the door and push the door switch closed by hand, if the light doesn't go out replace the switch
