My Maytag Centennial stopped working without any indication,

Customer Question

Good morning My Maytag Centennial stopped working without any indication
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: I push the start button and if feels like it should work but it does not. I feel the button pushing, it is not stuck or anything
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: the inner light is working I am not sure it depends on how difficult how do I find the model #?
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: no, actually the inner light is not working

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your Maytag washer. Please give me the model number found under the lid hinge.

It is my dryer. Where do I find the model number?

Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 4 months ago.

Thanks. Let me check that.

Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 4 months ago.

Ok, I'm looking at a diagram for this model. First, do you know that you are getting power to the dryer? Next, do you hear a noise when you press the start button?

MayTag Centennial Dryer Model MEDC300BW0 Type DWSR-ELE-2406028-FM54
It worked fine last time with no indication of problems.
I shut the door and pushed the start button.
The start button has a suction like it should work but nothing happens.
There is no inner light so I checked the breaker but the washer next to it has no problem
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Actually I have to go to work, then school. But I will be back same time tomorrow morning.
Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 4 months ago.

This is an electric dryer, so it has it's own 220 volt breaker and circuit. Your washer can still work if there is no power to the dryer.

Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 4 months ago.

Ok, just message me back when you get back.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I understand

If you still need help, let me know. If not, I will go ahead an close out this window. Thanks.
