My Maytag commercial technology gas dryer is making a very loud whining noise and shuts down by itself. Haven't been having problems with it. It came on all of a sudden.

Check for overloading, ensure that the dryer is not overloaded with clothes as this can put strain on the dryer motor. Inspect the drum rollers , check whether it has sins of wear and tear or damage and replace if necessary . Inspect the drum belt for any signs of damage and replace it if needed. Check the rollers for wear and replace them if needed. clean the vent to ensure proper airflow and prevent overheating.

Maytag old dryer flame will not ignite when glow thing lights up

The 'glow thing' is called a Thermocouple and is a safety device that makes sure that there is a flame before the main gas valve to the burners opens up. Because it is a gas appliance and the very REAL danger of explosion, all gas appliance must be worked on by a gas certified technician. It is not a big job and they normally carry thermocouples in the van. ..

Maytag drier lint screen will not go in all the way

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.

My Maytag dryer (Mode MEDC300XW1) is not starting, but runs in Wrinkle Prevent cycle.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum this is why in some cases the dryer will operate at lower cycles like gentle or low heat but not at higher settings?) Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet. Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity. A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats. Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING. NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position. If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor. Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor. Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter. Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released. Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad. doorswitch test -jocjtzzdqnljglg2mqen5tep-d-0.jpg fuses dryercyclingfuse-jocjtzzdqnljglg2mqen5tep-d-1.jpg moisture-sensor_330x200-jocjtzzdqnljglg2mqen5tep-d-2.jpg moisture-sensor-131845800-00833642-jocjtzzdqnljglg2mqen5tep-d-3.jpg timer motor wires-jocjtzzdqnljglg2mqen5tep-d-5.jpg

Maytag Stove Model MER5730AAA ... Baking element stays on. (Relay Board?)

If the baking element stays on even when the oven is turned off or when it's set to a different temperature, the issue might be with the relay board. The relay board is responsible for sending power to the bake element when it's supposed to be on, and cutting off power when it's supposed to be off. To confirm if the relay board is the culprit, you can try the following:
  1. Turn off the power to the oven at the circuit breaker.
  2. Remove the back panel of the oven to access the relay board.
  3. Look for any signs of damage or burning on the board.
  4. Inspect the connections and wiring for any signs of damage or burning.
  5. Use a multimeter to test for continuity across the contacts of the relay board that control the bake element.
  6. If the continuity is present when the oven is turned off, or if the board is visibly damaged or burnt, then it's likely that the relay board needs to be replaced.
If the relay board is determined to be the issue, it's recommended to have a qualified technician replace it as working with electrical components can be dangerous.

My Maytag 5000 series steam dry won't turn on when I push the Start/Pause button. It makes the sound it usuallydoes, but the sensing estimated time light turns on.

Try unplugging it or turn off the breaker to it for 60 seconds to see if it'll reset.

MAYTAG NEPTUNE DC MOD# MCE8000AYW interior lights are not coming on.

If replacing the bulbs did not fix the issue, then it could be a connection issue or a faulty light switch. You can try checking the connections to the light switch and the light assembly to make sure they are secure and properly connected. You can also use a multimeter to test the switch and see if it is functioning properly. If the switch is faulty, it will need to be replaced. If you are not comfortable doing this yourself, it is best to consult a professional technician.

I have a Maytag bravos dryer med6400tb0 that starts & stops immediately

It is possible that the motor might be faulty or bad then.Or it could be the fact that your dryer has quit working and you need a new dryer. They don't make the parts anymore for your dryer so you will have to buy a new dryer instead.
