There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Maytag dryer sdg515daww stopped working.


I assume this is Gas dryer from the model number having a G.
The door switch may cause the problem. If its not running the dryer thinks the door is open? And the light will also stay off. You can jump around the wires on the door switch and see if it works then if so its switch time.

I don't think a thermal fuse should have anything to do with the light. But that's not a bad idea for quick trouble shooting if a manufacturer would do it. Use a volt meeter to verify the voltage you may have enough for the timer to make noise but not enough to make it turn and the dryer to run.

If there is power then try rotating the tub slightly. The motor may have stuck. Don't turn it too far unless you know which way the drum turns. and try alkways to turn it that direction. Keeps your belts on.

If this helped you please rate me accordingly and good luck.

Maytag gas dryer wont stay hot


Check the exhaust to see if it is clogged. If not, you may need a pair of gas valve coils (not very hard.)
Replace the coils if you see the ignitor glow and shut off, without the gas valve opening up.
