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.
