Question and Answers

Q:

problem with my gas dryer MGDZ600TW2

A:

You could have a problem with the door switch. I recommend that you check that issue first. You can check the door switch using a diagnostic test mode. Pick any button except the Pause/Cancel button on the console. Use this keydance to enter the diagnostic test mode: Press & Hold for 3 seconds -- Release for 3 seconds -- Press & Hold for 3 seconds -- Release for 3 seconds -- Press & Hold for 3 seconds. If you enter that test correctly, all lights on the console will turn on for 5 seconds and then 88 should be diplayed on the digital display. The control will then display saved fault codes with the console lights flashing. Press & release the button that you choose to enter diagnostics to cycle through all saved fault codes (write them down as you cycle through them so that you can use the codes if necessary for diagnosis).  If a current code is encountered that has not cleared, the code will flash in the display and the console lights will not flash (just the digital display). If there are no codes or after you cycle through all codes, the 88 will again be displayed. To test the door switch, open and close the door. When you open the door, the digital display should change to an alphanumeric value other than 88. If that digital display does not change when you open & close the door then the door switch is likely defective.

 

If you replace that door switch yourself, be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components. 

 

If the door switch is okay, then you could have a blown thermal fuse, a broken drive belt (the motor won't run with a broken drive belt), a wiring failure, a bad control board or a failed drive motor. Reply with additional details if you need help diagnosing and repairing one of these failures.
