Customer Question
What do we do...

What do we do when our Maytag dryer doesn't start. It is of the Perfoma series

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is probably 4 or 5 years old. Would this be the number? MED5740TQO?

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

Probably not unless you think an easy way to restart it.

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

When we push the start button, it does start - when set it for the time for drying, we hear clicking sound.
