Customer Question

Maytag electric dryer runs anytime door is closed. I changed out door switch and operates good for couple weeks and now runs anytime door I'd closed. Any suggestions?

Thank you! If you turn the timer to an OFF position with the door closed, does it stop running?

With door closed, it runs in all off positions

If it runs when the timer is off, then the contacts in the centrifugal switch on the motor are welded together and the motor will need to be replaced.
