Question and Answers

Q:

Maytag Dryer MED5620TQ0 will not run -

A:

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

From your description you most likely have a bad push to start relay. To check this leave the door open and check continuity between the blue wire and the pink/black at the push to start relay. This should read closed, if not you will need to replace the push to start relay (part number W10117655).

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 .

Q:

Timer and heat went out on Maytag Dryer at the same time?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The timer will not advance when using the automatic dry cycles if the dryer is not heating but it should advance in the time cycle even though it's not heating.

Yes, the timer could prevent the dryer from heating but so can many other components.

The first thing that should be checked and tested is the voltage supply. The dryer must have a 220 volts power supply in order to heat. Locate the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers by flipping them both Off and On 2-3 times and then see if the dryer heats. If it continues to run and not heat, the voltage supply should be tested and verified where the power cord attaches to the back of the dryer. The voltage must measure 220 volts when measuring across the two outside terminals. NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

If 220 volts is present across the two outside terminals then it could have one of the following component failures:

  • Timer
  • Thermal cut off
  • Operating thermostat
  • Hi Limit thermostat
  • Heating element
  • Motor centrifugal switch

The thermal cut off, hi limit, operating thermostat and the heating element can be disconnected and tested for continuity using an Ohm meter. Which ever one tests open/no continuity would be the faulty component. I added a YouTube video showing how to test the thermal cut off and how to test the heating element . If you find a faulty heating element I added a YouTube video showing how to replace the heating element . NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power supply before removing the rear panel and testing the components for continuity.

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 .
