Maytag Dryer MDE6700AZW panels light but won't start
« on: January 09, 2017, 10:26:41 AM »

I have a Maytag MDE6700AZW.  I have the same problem I saw posted on this site but was unable to access the manual where the poster was directed. I know it was 7 years ago but I'm hoping someone will recognize the problem again.

The dryer will not start. The front panel LED will light up, the chime works, but the dryer will not run. When you try to start it, you can hear the relay closing and opening, but no go. I checked the error codes and there was an error code 10 appearing which is defined as "No Wet Clothes", the trigger is "Sensor bar detects no wet clothes in sensor dry cycle" and the action to be taken is "Check for: running dryer with no wet clothes in sensor dry cycle".

The reply was

Probably blew a simple thermal fuse. I will also bet that someone put foil duct on the dryer.

The manual for this dryer is HERE for your perusal. The thermal fuse and other parts can be checked.

Hope someone out there has an idea.

This service manual applies to your model. Your dryer's tech sheet has info as well. If it is the thermal fuse, TH1, that is open, the part # is WP35001087. It's located next to the thermistor on the blower housing.
