Please help with my Maytag mede200xw1 dryer.  I love my appliances and we just got them last year.  If I don't do at least two loads a day we have serious Mt. Washmore here!

 

Here are the facts, relevant or not:

* I can turn the power on and off

* I can press buttons to change the selected cycle

* I can turn the selector dial to change the cycle also.

* there are no error messages and the display will change the amount of time in the window depending on what cycle is selected.

 

As soon as I press the start button, all  I get is three quick beeps.

 

Here is what I have done, relevant or not:

* Unplugged and re pluged in the dryer

* Checked the vents from machine to outside, all clear.

* tried many combinations of pressing buttons and options.

* Removed the lint trap and made sure nothing is in there.

* Read the user guide to see if there is any reference or help to decode the 3 beeps.

* Reversed the direction of the door, the door catch mechanism had one little piece of plastic missing, so I switched the door so it would catch on the one that looks like it wasn't broken.  I thought perhaps that it wasn't registering the door as closed.  I really thought that would fix the problem.

* Prayed a lot!

 

Thanks for your time in considering my dilema.

So now am thinking the door catch is different than the door switch, since there are are no wires on the one I just took out, really feeling like a monkey....

Door switch, has three wire attached to it..Blue...Black and white.............White is possibly neutral...Black is for motor operation and Blue is probably for your light.........No wire diagram to verify..but attach one lead of meter to white and  one to black, push button..Got continuity????

Thanks to the Sublime Master of Apliantology, I focused on the silly door switch.  I put in a new light bulb so I could test the door switch.  With a working light bulb, when I pressed the door switch, the light stayed on, so I just ordered a door switch.  Hopefully, I can use my PRM skills to get it in.  Maybe I should order two because my 5 year old loves to press that button to turn the light off and on while I fold laundry...I'll be using clothes pins until Friday when the part comes.
