I have the Maytag Performa Series. My daughter finished drying clothes and then went to do another load and nothing. I checked all the thermal fuses, checked continuity on all the switches with the exception of the timer. If I turn the timer, the on/off switch clicks but nothing. Turning the timer a few times and hitting the switch the dryer started working again but when the door was opened to the dryer it died again. Now nothing. Can't duplicate that one occurrence where it started again. The switch on the dryer door turn the inside light on and off, I didn't check the continuity but assume since the light is turning on and off it's ok. No motor smell. Cleaned all the contacts but I see no corrosion anywhere. I don't mind buying the timer if that is what it is, or can someone recommend anything else? Thanks

My dryer stopped drying. It still tumbles, still turns on, however the timer knob does not rotate. Could I need a new timer to solve this?

My dryer will not start the door light comes on when open. If I set the dial and push the start button I hear a click like the relay working. When I open the door or turn the timer I hear the relay click again. Motor and drum turns freely vent area is clean. Any suggestions?

Latest Questions

Dryer won't start. If you keep move the knob that sets how many long you want it to dry it will eventually start to work. Do I need a new timer or could it be a wiring issue
