Dryer won't start.

My Maytag Atlantis dryer won't start at all, regardless of the position of the cycle dial. When the start button is pressed, it buzzes as if the cycle is at the end.

Won,t turn off timer does not move , but was changed but still the same its a maytag atlantis .could it be the sensor assembly.....timer does not move in any position.but when moved physically in off...


Here,s what I found!!! Have 3 cycle's
; time dry, wrinkle free, and regular. I was told the dryer wasn't shutting off and the timer was not advancing, which was made evident by the fact that when we came home it was still running, which I have seen. Please keep in mind I have two adult children who use the dryer. Took off the back of the control panel ( make sure power is off at the breaker or unit is unplugged ). I vacuumed all the lint out of the back, it was considerable! Then made sure all spade terminals were tight and free of corrosion. I've been a nuts and bolts electrician for thirty years and extremely strong troubleshooter so I thought, "perchance I'm getting bad info". I ran all 3 cycles at every temp. setting and saw the timer advance ( it takes about 15 min. to see a real change ). It could be that the "lint" was shorting out wires ( that would be the same as closing contacts at the wrong time ) and causing the timing function not to work. Anyhow, make sure you look at everything before you start buying parts that may not be necessary. Hope this helps.

You dont need to check motor first. start from door switch. check the continuity of the switch if not making a peep sound when you press the button replace the switch button.

I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.
