Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

I have an older model SD * maytag dryer. It stopped working sunday after i opened the door to stop a load. After i returned i went to push the start button and nothing happened. I checked the breaker box, switched were not tripped but i reset them anyway. I then unplugged the replugged the outlet, changed the setting, and checked the door several times to make sure it was closing properly. None of these things got the dryer working again. Any suggestions?

Dryer was working fine, and it just stopped, door switch is ok


Stopped turning and clothes still wet ? Was the timer still in the duty cycle ? Can I assume the door was properly closed. There is a safety switch on the door, open the door and find it. With the power off try pushing on the lever to activate the switch manually (with a tooth pick etc.) If you can hear a distinct click it is probable OK. If you want to test it with a meter you will need to open up most machines.

Dryer stopped working mid-cycle.


I presume she pushed the start button again. Can you hear the motor running? If so, it's a broken belt. The door switch can fail anytime. If the dryer started ok later, the motor was overheated. Lighter loads will avoid a lot of problems, and the dryer will probably work better.

Maytag Electric Dryer Stopped Working


Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning
