Maytag Dryers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


The clicking and inability to start usually is due to the top not being closed.
Perhaps a small foreign body, or a piece of clothing is keeping the full closure from occurring.

Inspect the full border carefully, it does not take much to prevent the closure.

Green with a yellow stripe is used as European Standard wire colour for earth (i.e. ground / chassis) so it probably joins to a part of the body (control head body to dryer frame?). The connector on the end of the wire should give you a clue, i.e. does it have a push connector (look for a spade) or an eye (to go on a chassis screw somewhere, often with a star washer under to improve connection)?

I had this problem as well. I pulled the lint filter out and vacuumed everything and it still wouldn't go down. I made sure to clean all the 'tracks' around the edge of the filter, in case that was causing the problem. No luck. I stuck my fingers in and even pulled the interior cover off to get at whatever was holding it up and still NOTHING.

But then I found the problem! The handle where you reach in and pull the filter out has to go in behind the interior vent cover. You have to stick your head in the dryer to see that it's catching. One side of my 'handle' wasn't going behind but resting on top. I pulled out the filter and then I gently pushed on the plastic interior filter cover for a few seconds and then tried the filter again. I did it several times before I got the cover pushed enough so the handle was nesting behind the cover properly.

My theory is that when the lint accumulates it lifts the filter up. And when the filter doesn't get nested all the way, the plastic cover softens enough in the heat that it bends slightly in. After a while, it bends in enough to keep the filter sitting slightly above where it ought to be and you can't get it down in there. I am going to keep my filter space cleaned out regularly to make sure the filter always sits down in there properly. But regardless, I figured it out so I can fix it again if I have to.

I believe that it does. All of these parts should be functioning properly in order to dry the clothes well.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks.
If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the
wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed
component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame.
Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.
Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed.
If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause
heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the
thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape
or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
(Thermal fuse.If it overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged
with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's
plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

F04 E04 means low power voltage to dryer - check both sides of AC receptacle for 110 to 120VAC on each side to ground - check breaker panel for tripped or bad 220VAC breaker. Only one side may be suppling voltage to dryer.

This question has already been answered in Fixya. Here is the answer from Lee Parker. >> you open the door you should see the hinges and a screw or two holding them. On the opposite side you will see the same screw or screws possibly holding door stops/bumpers, unscrew the screws, lift and remove the door, flip it over and put on other side moving the door stops if applicable to where the hinges used to be.
