Q:

Dryer not starting, but heating on its own. MED5620TQ0 Maytag Residential dryer

A:

I did find the wiring diagram. I found it when I dug deeper into the dryer. From the diagram, it looks like the heater element has to be energized from the timer and a switch activated by the motor (or a relay that should activate when the motor runs). I will take the front of the dryer off and investigate the wires and area around the motor. Any tips or guidance would be appreciated.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the dryer.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Maytag model number MED5620TQ0.

First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
 
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.


Two items to check.   If you have an ohm meter then you can check the continuity for both.   Check your door switch and the thermal fuse, thermal fuse is on the back side of the blower,  A thermstat there too so be wise and check it all.

Lid switch for the model med5620tq0

thermal fuse for the model med5620tq0

Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your product not working correctly.

The dryer must have the motor running to make any heat.  The motor switch M1 to M2 must close for heat.  The motor is powered through the start relay.  When you press the start button the blue to blue contacts are made on the relay and the blue from the timer to the pink and black is energized, this is the coil and when energized the blue to blue contacts stay closed. 

Next the voltage goes to the motor and the start winding 4M to 5M through the motor to the timer contacts white to tan and tan to the blue wire at the door switch, through the door switch on the neutral. 

If you hold the start switch down and keep holding it down if the motor runs it is the relay coil faulty.

If you hold the start switch in and nothing happens, the fault is the start relay, thermal fuse, motor, timer or the door switch.   The voltage would need to be checked across the mentioned devices to determine the fault. 

NOTE:

  Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service.

Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

NOTE:  Live voltage checks are dangerous, and possibly deadly. Exercise caution at all times.

If you are not comfortable working with live electricity I recommend you call a Sears Home Services  technician.

 

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.
