Hit start button but dryer will not start can hear the timer running


Open the dryer door and press the door switch , to make sure you hear a distinct " click " . If the door switch seems ok , then remove the rear dryer panel ( UNPLUG DRYER FIRST ) . On the blower housing , you will see a white 1" long piece ( thermal fuse ) with 2 wires plugged onto it . This is the piece you need to replace . #3392519 is the Whirlpool part number .

Maytag Dryer Has No Power


i am sorry to hear this, mdg model number means that you have a gas dryer, you have a fuse and thermastat that needs to be replaced which is beneath the top behind the drum, you will see a short element, a blue thermastat and 2 white wires that goes down to a fuse.

when you buy the fuse, it comes as a kit, the thermastat and 2 fuses, one of the small fuses you will not use because one if for an electric dryer, so look at your fuse and notice a dot, i do believe your dot will be yellow...

so lift up the top and you will see these parts

My Maytag dryer won't start when I hit the start button


My dryer light comes on for my Maytag SDE4606AYW dryer when you open the door and I can hear the timer clicking but when I hit start the motor doesn't even attempt to start but there is obviously power. My dad just installed a new power cord to the dryer but this is a seperate issue as we were obviously unable to check the motor before we got a cord for it. He has years of electrical experience so I'm assuming he connected the new cord right. Any ideas on fuses in the dryer or why it may not be getting power?

Dryer will not start, timer sounds like it is running


Possibly a door switch, or starting switch near timer assembly. it could also be a bad breaker, dryers have a double breaker, even if you are getting electricity to part of your dryer 1 bad breaker might not let the rest of the dryer work. With electrical experiance,and elect. tools, have some one test breakers and plug voltage.
