Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Your dryer is not an average type dryer with the average type of controls. It has an electronic control board inside the console referred to as the "Evenheat" control board along with a timer and heater relay. It also uses a thermistor which is used to monitor temperature which works in conjunction with the evenheat control board. I added an image below with general information. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

Based on your symptom it could have one of many different component failures preventing the timer from advancing and from heating.

It could have a faulty "Evenheat" control board or timer. There is a very slight possibly it's not heating because of the lack of proper voltage, faulty heating element of thermal cut off. Locate the house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers by flipping them OFF and ON 2-3 times and then check the dryer for heat. If it continues to run and not heat I recommend calling a service technician.

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 .

Dara: Since your dryer is electric and the heating element required 220 volts to produce heat the first thing to check is the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer. Reset both circuit breakers by flipping them both OFF and ON 2-3 times and then recheck the dryer for heat. If it continues to run and not heat then the voltage supply will need to be checked and confirmed before proceeding to test each component connected in a series circuit with the heating element for continuity using an Ohm meter. I do not recommend checking voltages unless you have experience and you feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling for service. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.

A:

Chuck: Without having the model number of your gas dryer I can only provide general information. You will need to disconnect each one of the components connected in the circuit to the gas valve and igniter and check them for continuity. One of them is open which is breaking the electrical circuit to the igniter. Reply with the model number and I can provide model specific information and trouble shooting assistance.

Chuck: Thank you for adding the model number. You did not mention if the new igniter is glowing red or not. If it is not glowing then we must assume the igniter is not getting any voltage. If it is not glowing then it could have a faulty thermal fuse, operating thermostat, high limit thermostat or a faulty flame sensor. I recommend checking the thermal fuse first. The thermal fuse is located on the blower wheel housing and will have a solid red wire and red wire with a white stripe connected to it. Disconnect both wires and check across the two male terminals on the thermal fuse for continuity. It must measure continuity or it is faulty. Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing your dryer.

Thank you for the question about your Maytag dryer model SDE305DAYW.

Based on your description I also think the belt may be stretched and worn causing the slippage. Another possible cause could be the idler spring that holds tension on the belt and idler pulley. I will attach a link to our Parts Direct Sears Parts Direct .

You can view the parts and see the breakdown. If you need additional help please reply with more details. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Thanks Ron H.

A:

Check to see if the drum light turns on when you open the door. Assuming that the bulb is okay, this will verify that you have the L2 leg of electrical power supplied to the dryer. The dryer motor will run if only the L1 leg of 120 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If the L2 leg of 120 volt power is missing the dryer will not heat (and the drum light will not turn on). In this situation, check your breaker. If the breaker is okay then you will likely need an electrician to check the circuit through your dryer outlet.

If the drum lamp turns on then you could have a bad temperature switch, failed heating element, a bad high limit thermostat, a failed cycling thermostat, a bad timer contact, a failed contact in the motor centrifugal switch or a wiring failure between components that would prevent the dryer from heating.

Try running the dryer on several different temperature settings to see if it will heat on any setting. If the dryer heats on some settings but not others then this switch will likely need to be replaced.

If you are able to access the heating element, you can check the resistance of this component with a volt/ohm meter. The heating element should measure about 10 ohms of resistance. If it is open (measures Ol -- open load or infinite resistance) then it will need to be replaced.

A technician will normally need to diagnose and repair the other potential failures listed above. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .
