My dryer is only...

My dryer is only 7 months old. It is an electric dryer. I loaded the clothes and set the desired settings as usual. It started and made a strange noise and shut down. I checked for coins, etc which might be caught in the crevices of the drum. I found nothing. I tried again, there is no strange noise but the dryer comes on and goes off almost immediately. HELP!!

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

I SAID IT IS SEVEN MONTHS OLD. MEDX655DW MAYTAG

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

It depends on whether you can enlighten me as to the problem

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I haven't thought of anything else. I have never had a problem with this dryer. It is almost new!!!

Hello Eloise, Can you tell me how long the dryer runs after pressing the start button?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Just a few seconds. Now it starts after a few minutes and shuts down almost immediately; then I press the start and it does nothing.

Ok, is the dryer giving you an error code or beeping when it shuts off?

No.

Ok then. It sounds like you have a bad motor. It is prematurely overheating and shutting off. This is not something that the average person can replace. The good news is that if your dryer is only 7 months old, it should still be under factory warranty. I would contact Maytag directly at 1-***-***-**** and give them the model and serial number that is found in the door frame. They will be able to verify the purchase date using the serial number and should get it straightened out for you. Seven months is simply too soon for it to break down like that.
