Maytag Dryer PYET344AYW - Not starting

4 posts in this topic

So I rented my place, the renters had the electricity turned off and my basement flooded. The water should not have much over a few inches to the dryer. when i press in "start" button the dryer does not start, makes almost a ticking noise, but does not turn on. I checked the high limit thermo (3) and the Thermo fuse (5) all carried a charge.

May be a bad Drum Motor

While someone presses the Start Button,

check for 120v AC between the Purple and the White wires of the Motor.

Thanks for the speedy reply! Ordered the new motor. It's a heckuva lot cheaper than a new dryer!
