Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Hi, Model: Maytag DE8410 electric dryer The cycle completes and the buzzer sounds, but does it not stop until I pull the door open. I think I also got it to stop by rotating the cycle knob as well. I checked the push button start switch and it does not appear to be stuck. The dryer does not automatically start when I turn the knob and close the door, which also makes me believe the start switch is not stuck. I cleaned out the entire vent. 1) The dryer is NOT plugged in. Is it safe for me to vacuum out all the lint on the inside of the dryer, around the motor, pulleys, et cetera? Any other suggestions are appreciated. Thanks, al

The timer might be bad and the part # for it is 306040
it is safe to clean it when it is not plug in , just be cearful not to move the wire from the place they in.
if it is not big problem dont replace the timer its 100$+ so live it till the unit die ... it is old unit any way...

    Thanks for the response. I cleaned out the interior. There was quite a bit of lint on the motor itself.

    I've run the dryer 3 times since then and each time the buzzer sounded once, and the cycle ended. It is behaving as expected.

    1) If the timer is failing, could the behaviour be intermittent?
    2) The dryer has been squealing since I replaced the heating element about two years ago. Is this due to the cable(s)?

    Thanks,
    al

Maytag Neptune dryer timer won't stop


If the timer is not stopping as it goes around then it's for sure the timer. The timer does pretty much all the work with controlling the dryer. And if it's physically not stopping going around then it has broken.

I have a Maytag dryer (Model MDE2600)and the buzzer will not go off unless the door is opened. Buzzer begins when door is closed.


Hi

Buzzer comes on because the control senses that the door is not closed and won't start the cycle. This issue is caused by door switch-latch assembly (part#6 and part#9 in this diagram) that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Buzzer won't go off when dryer is stopped - All else works fine - must leave door open


Fiddled around with the start button. It had gotten stuck in the on position and when I moved it around it freed up. I consider this a temporary fix only and have already ordered a replacement switch.

Clothes Dryer will not stop or be quiet


On some Kenmore which is made by whirlpool, there is a resistor connected to the timer control. when the machine is off can you listen to the timer switch and hear it running, making a clock ticking sound? If so, you need a new resistor. Being a dryer, when you open the door and it stops the button needs to be reset before it starts again, right? So I wouldnt be looking at the door switch as much as the start button. It may be the evil one.
