Maytag DG412 gas dryer buzzes when start button is pushed but

This answer was rated:

Maytag DG412 gas dryer buzzes when start button is pushed but produces only a slightly burnt smell, dryer will not start. Usually starts with an hour or two between loads but this time no

Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

Good afternoon, can you have someone push the start button for you while you reach in and spin the drum and hold the door switch in ? will it start then ?

Yes That started it

okay. whats going on is you motor has a dead spot on the start windings. as you know this used to start after a couple of hours after you used it. Well the start windings are getting worse but you can replace those you would need to replace the motor to fix the issue. Drive Motor W10410999 Main Product View its around $124.00 so thats up to you. heres a link to order it and theres a video there to show you how to replace it. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Drive-Motor/W10410999/2118676?modelNumber=DG412?RCAID=1000065 thanks and best wishes, Bryan

Thanks You confirmed what I suspected and I think I will look for a new dryer rather than put a motor in this one since it seems to take longer than other dryers to dry a load of clothes though it has two elbows and 7' of 4"x28guage pipe to the vent

Your very welcome. Yes this is an old dryer and has probably given you many years of great service but like all things they have to retire someday Smile Please remember to rate me 3 or above before signing off. Have a great weekend and thanks. Bryan
