Question about Maytag MED9600S Electric Dryer

Maytag dryer [electric] MED9600 lights up but won't start

I have a Maytag front loading electric Dryer model MED9600 SQ0. When I attempt to start it by pressing the CONTROL START button, all the front panel lights come on correctly and I’m able to select any cycle, time, etc but when I press the START button I hear a click with the SENSING button lighting up but it does not start. All the front panel lights stay lit but the drum does not turn…no sounds, no nothing! Today I had an electrician test the 220 plug and everything is working correctly with full 220 flow. I tried RESETTING it by unplugging it for 1 min., plugged it back in, pushed the "off" button once, then push the off button again and hold it for 10 seconds but it did not resolve the issue. Can anyone help me :)
Thanks much!!

    I'm very sorry but I cannot seem to locate any part named "control panel" for my Maytag frontload Dryer MED9600SQ0. Could someone pls locate the part # or URL for the part that I need to fix my dryer...please! And are you sure that this very expensive part is my problem?? I'm sure that I can't get my money back on it if its not.

    Thank you very much in advance!!

    Sorry again guys but I have two expert responses that have two very different answers. One says that I need a new Control Panel and the other says that my motor is fried & needs replacing. Does anyone have experience to tell me what is wrong?? Please???

    Thank you VERY MUCH!!

Possible causes for your issue include:

Blown fuse
Timer or motor inoperative
Housing wiring not properly connected to dryer
Bad door switch
Faulty "Push to Start" switch

It would probably be best to have a professional pinpoint the exact defect.

Hi,

The easiest/fastest user action is to unplug from the mains for a considerable time (hours). This would reset the unit and revert everything to factory default. If things workout, you are good if not then your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional. This suggestion would be to your advantage in terms of quicker turn around, less effort, no "guesswork" and you get warranty. The opposite would require that you be familiar with handtools, electrical & electronics as well as knowledge of troubleshooting/diagnostic. No offense intended but trying a DIY (do-it-yourself) precludes the aforementioned.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Your motor has fried. It isn't in the Control Panel, the SENSES light wouldn't turn on if it were the CP. If you go to your closest Home Depot, ask the front desk for assistance with Dryer Motors. They will guide you through to get you the right one. They will even tell you how to install it. When you replace it with the new motor, the Dryer will work fine.

If this helps at all, please rate this a FixYa. - Evolution

The control locked button is on. I do not know how to turn it off to start my next load of laundry.


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Frigidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your specific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

Just moved, dryer won't tumble with a load. Error code PF


Did it get tipped in the move? I don't know about the specific model of Maytag, but on my old Kenmore the belt that ran the drum also had a wheel and kind of like a pulley that it had to seated on in order for the belt to stay centered on the drum and turn properly.I don't know how you get the shell off the front to get at the drum, the Kenmore had screws that you had to take out and lift the control panel off and then back to get at the inside. Sorry

• Be sure the door is latched shut.
• Be sure the power cord is plugged into a live electrical outlet.
• Check the home’s circuit breaker and fuses.
• Press the START button again if the door is opened during the cycle.

If everything checks out ok with the above check list, you may have electrical motor issues. I would run a break point test on the motor and the control panel as well. (You will need a Voltage needle to perform a break point test.)
