maytag timer not working
« on: March 03, 2015, 09:50:04 PM »
ok I've got an older maytag dependable car plus dryer. not sure what the mod is. I found a schem on it but I don't know how to read that stuff. basically I hated lisening to the loud buzzer go off so I unplugged 2 wires that looked like they went to the buzzer. now the timer isn't working and it won't shut off unless I open the door. can't remember where they plug in at. I've tried different combinations.

The wire color is on the timer, just match it up.  It looks like you might have a black wire connected to the RD terminal.

  Looks like you disconnected the timer motor wires, not the buzzer. That thing on the back of the timer is the timer motor. Plug the two black wires back in, one to GY and one to BR (doesn't matter which is which). Unplug and tape off the pink wire to disable the buzzer.
