Maytag dryer acts like it has no power
« on: March 29, 2012, 08:16:49 AM »
I used the dryer yesterday and it worked fine.
Today it won't do anything.
It's a model maytag MDE7657BYW

Please tell me what to check or what part I need to fix it.

The blower wheel on these is plastic. It will wear out and cause longer drying times and it will blow the fuse which is the first link below. The second link is the service manual.

To get into this puppy you remove the door then the front panel then pop the top and get the shroud off then you can get the drum out and clean her up.

You will also want to check the door switch.

This is the door switch for your model dryer.

I hope this helps.

... Maytag dryer acts like it has no power
does it have power ?
check and re-set your House Circuit Breakers.
Test the voltages at the Dryer Power Cord Terminal Strip
