Maytag gas dryer model SDG4606AWW timer wont rotate on any cycle, dryer just keeps running until knob is rotated manualy to off, replaced timer and new one is doing the same, took dryer compltley apart,...


I don't have a Maytag schematic handy but there should be one on or in the dryer. Trace the clock wiring back until until you get voltage. I am betting one leg of the time motor goes to the drum motor (Gray wire maybe) and the other leg to the dryness sensor module (brown wire). Check these wires against both Line and Neutral. That should tell of it's the module or the motor block.

Dyer will not dry


The CMT switch is the centrifugal motor switch mounted on the dryer motor. It has spring loaded weights that retract it back into the open circuit position between Number 1 and number 2 on either end of the quick connect. These 2 are thick red wires and go to the heater. If the motor is not running the heat will not come on To check the cent switch manuall move it by sliding the black disc on the shaft Then check between the 2 ends to see if you have continuity. The chances of the cent switch being faulty are slim and none. The motor circuit is on 120 volts because the motor is a 120 volt one. Only the heater needs 240 volts. So if one side of the breaker is bad or tripped you might not get any heat. make sure you got 240 between L-1 and L-2. Next thing to check (with machine unplugged) is the fat red wire on the timer. Remove it and check from that leg and any other leg on the timer. If you cannot get a reading between that terminal and any other terminal on the timer and you moved it around the dial to do the check then you have a bad timer.

Dryer functioning but air not getting hot. this is a Maytag gas dryer


Hi,
Things that could stop a gas dryer from heating:
Glow bar igniter, thermal fuse (not all models), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats, motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.
On the back of the dryer near the fan blower housing is a thermal fuse, if this opens up (no continuity) the gas burner often quits but the motor will still run. If the thermal fuse is open/bad, always clean, change, adjust the venting system and vent hood first and clean out the dryer’s air ducts. Sometimes it is a good idea to replace the operating thermostat at the same time.
Thermal fuse parts help link...on blower housing cover, cannot be re-set, must be replaced if is open (no continuity between pins).
Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

Dryer does not start I already replaced the timer


First check the dryer push button on switch; next, meter the start relay and, the centrifugal switch on the front of the motor (this switches the start motor winding on; then off as the run winding takes over

Maytag dryer MDE7400


depending on model, (mechanical timer or electronic timer)

Mechanical dryer timer has a tiny motor to advance it
many times service techs forget to plug in the timer drive motor when they replace the timer switch that it is screwed to
or they replace the switch when the switch is ok, but the motor is bad
Not a solution just something to check
the timer drive motor is a 2inch diameter press formed sheet metal device 1/2 inch thick on the rear of the timer switch
if there are wires hanging off, that is the solution
if there is no hum from the timer motor when you push the start button, replace the timer drive motor

electronic, not had one break yet
