Q:

Removing front of dryer MDE9606AYW Maytag Electric dryer

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when doing repair work on the dryer

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Maytag model number mde9606ayw.

How to remove front of your Maytag dryer:

1.  Working on dryers we recommend that you make sure the dryer is fully unplugged from the wall.

2.  Slide the tip of a putty knife into the gap between the top and control panel area.  Push in the putty knife into the internal clips on each left and right corners.

3.  Lift the top (control panel) from the rest until it comes to rest on the wall area behind the dryer.

4.  Unhook the wire connector plugged into the door switch assembly

5.  Unscrew the screws located at the top border of the front panel.   Lift up the front panel to disconnect  it from the cabinet.  Set the panel to the side.

 If you have further questions please let me know.

Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

Q:

Why won't my Maytag electric dryer start?

A:

Here are some troubleshooting tips for this problem:

  • Check the breakers for the dryer to make sure that they are one. Reset the breakers by turning them completely off and then back on. If the breakers are okay, check the voltage at the outlet. You should measure 220 volts AC at the outlet.
  • Check your door switch. The light should come on when the door is open. It should go off when the door is closed. Press the button to simulate the door being closed and see if the light turns off. If the light does not turn off when the button is pushed, you have a problem with your door switch. NOTE: If the light does turn off, you could still have a problem with the door switch, but it is not likely.
  • The buzzing that you heard could have been the motor running. You could have a broken drive belt. I would check for this next. To lift the top panel and check the belt, follow the steps in this link of a previous answer: [ http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/answers/Answers.action?qid=112891 ] NOTE: You may need to copy and past this address into your web browser.
  • If the belt is good, I recommend checking the thermal fuses for the motor. There is one thermal fuse on the heater housing and one thermal fuse on the blower motor housing. You can view the location of these parts on the Sears PartsDriect website ( www.searspartsdirect.com ). The thermal fuse on the blower motor housing is Key 10 on the MOTOR DRIVE subcomponent page. The thermal fuse on the heater housing is Key 11 on the HEATER subcomponent page. To check these fuses with the dryer unplugged, pull at least one wire off of the fuse and measure the resistance across the leads with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance (closed). If one of the fuses (or both) is open (measure infinite resistance) the component will need to be replaced. NOTE: If the belt broke, it could have caused one or both of the thermal fuses to blow.

This troubleshooting should help you determine the cause of your dryer problem. You could still have other problems that are preventing the dryer from running. A failed drive motor, bad push-to-start switch or a wiring failure could cause your problem. These failures are less likely based on the details of your symptoms. If the above tips do not help, resubmit your question with additional details for more help in resolving this problem.

I am not finding this website so friendly. Not sure how to reply to above response, so am re-joining conversation. Hope this does not just come back to me. To answer above suggestions: the belt is fine, the light comes on, the ticking noise is coming from the timer switch, not the motor. I have replaced the thermal fuse near the heating element. I can see the heating element getting red. Assume I need to try the other thermal fuse, which I think is down at bottom near the front side of the dryer, next to the lint trap? Also, the web address noted above was not good, so I could not pull up site.
