I have a Maytag Bravos Quiet Series 300, Model MEDB400VQ0, Ser MW4404698 that will not start. When you press the start button there is a clicking sound but the dryer itself will not turn or produce heat. What is strange is the timer on dryer will countdown as if it was running.

The dryer is from 2008

I do not but could get one if inexpensive
you can get one at Lowe's or a hardware store for around $15.00. you don't need an expensive one.if you get one come back and we can continue. you need to check the thermal fuse which I think is your issue. thanks , Bryan

Looks like this was the issue (however on the Maytag, you pretty much have to take the whole dryer apart to get to the fuse). Tested without a current going through.


Thank you!
