maytag dryer MDE6000ayq

A:

Dryer problems can make for a long laundry day. I can see how you would like a quick solution to this one. I was able to locate a previous expert post with a list of items you might check on a Maytag dryer. The model number is a bit different but it may help while you wait for the expert to review your model. I attached the link below. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I do not have enough details in order to have a complete understanding of your symptom. You did not state if you're using the automatic dry cycle or Time dry. If you're using the automatic dry cycle and the timer advances to off before the clothes are dried then it could have a control board failure, loose wire connections, not putting enough clothes in the dryer in order for the clothes to make contact with the moisture sensor bars or the moisture sensor bars just may need cleaning.

Is the dryer stopping before it reaches the end of the cycle and if so, are you able to start it back up or do you have to wait awhile before it will restart?

Reply with additional details for specific troubleshooting assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

both cycles cut-off, yes the timer advances but cuts-off, before the reaching the end of the cycle, How do I clean the moisture sensor? Yes sometimes it starts right away and today I had to unplug it and then it started but did not finish the cycle. I wiped out the shop vac, and cleaned out everything possible, Now it wont start. the light comes on though. I love this dryer and I believe I can fix it if I had a clue. I am handy

Smi1tty: Based on you reply it seems as though the motor is overheating and shutting off or possibly a door switch issue or loose wire connection. Clean the moisture sensor bars with a clean rag and alcohol. When the door is shut, the door switch should cause the blue 41 wire and yellow 43 make contact in order for the dryer to start and to continue to run. If Blue 41 and Yellow 36 contact opens, the motor will stop running and it will not start. If your able to start the dryer back up immediately after it stops, then you can likely rule out the motor overheating. Checking the door switch operation with an ohm meter is the first thing I would check with an ohm meter. With the dryer unplugged and the yellow 34 and blue 41 wire disconnected from the door switch, check for continuity across the terminal the yellow 34 and blue 41 was attached when the door close or the switch pushed in. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer if the door switch tests okay.
