Try this first: 

  • turn off the dryer circuit breaker in the house then turn it back on. sometimes the dual breaker will trip on only one side leaving you with a non functioning machine that seems to have power.
  • also check the door switch and make sure it is clicking when you slowly close the door.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

I had the same problem. Here's a quick test you need to do. It will take two individuals (unless you're extremely talented) Open the dryer door and push in the door switch... and hold it in. Have the other person push on (and hold) the start button on the console. At that same time everyone is pushing the switches take a free hand and reach into the dryer and try to spin it. Sometimes just a little push (assistance) is all it takes and..... bingo the dryer starts up! If that's the case... your motor is on its way out or it's gone. Usually due to the bearings on the motor being badly worn.

Maytag dryer will not start. The light comes on when the door is open, but when the door is closed and we push the button, it will not start. The dryer is about 1 yr old.

I have a 10 year old Maytag Performa. It started


Hello, try checking the door switch, with no light in the drum it points to the door switch being bad. To test this unplug the machine, bypass the door switch with a wirenut..Don't forget to replace the switch if bad, the door switch is there for a reason. Good Luck!!! Please feel free to comment again if you have any other questions or concerns. Mike

15 year old Kenmore dryer not working


Sounds like you thru the breaker. If not, it is the door switch.

I have a maytag dryer that has power, but the light doesnt work(but it is not burned out) and the dryer will not start. timer works, can anyone tell me what could be the problem


You probably have a bad door switch. When the door is open, the switch should turn on the light. When the door is closed, the switch should allow the dryer to start.

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start button


My Hotpoint dryer is seven years old and did the exact same thing. When I got over the anger and the thought of spending 4 or 5 hundred dollars to replace it I started messing with it. I finally decided that since it buzzed when I tried to start it there was current there. The only other thing it could be was the drying cycle knob.
I held the start knob and let it buzz while I slowly turned the dryer cycle knob to the right. As I turned through each cycle it would hit "off" and the buzzing would stop and then resume as I moved past the "off " setting. On the third trip around the dryer "started" and has been working since. Maybe something got out of kilter. Apparently the problem was in the knob that controls the drying cycles.

Control Button Issues


My two year old unit would not do anything, but lights on. Then they would go off, and nothing but opening the door would get them on again. Replaced electronic panel in Feb. 2008, under warranty, still cost $80. Worked until first of June, 2008. Ordered a new panel. Repairman suggested that the wall outlet may be defective, even though the lights were on. The Unit also would have the lights come on by themselves. Outlet replaced, dryer worked fine. We still replaced the panel board, as repairman was not sure exactly what was the problem. I was told that the panel costs about $300.
