This answer was rated:

10 year old maytag electric dryer doesn't always start when the control is pulled. Sometimes requires multiple pulls to get it to start. Any ideas?

YOU are saying the control is pulled !!

DO you mean when you push the start button ?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No the control button is used to set the type of drying (air fluff etc) and pulled to start the dryer.

Oh ok so you are talking about the timer- control knob. Now I see what you are talking about

If it somes times works and some time does not it will be internal of the timer .

Here is a link to the part .
