    Default [FIXED] Maytag Dryer runs 10 seconds shuts off.

    Model Number: mdet446ayw
    Brand: Maytag

    The dryer runs for 10 seconds and shuts off, with or without cloths. I tryed different settings, run 10 sec shuts off. Nothing sounds different. I took the front off and vacuumed all the lint out, vacuumed the motor off, cleaned the inside all up. Still only runs 10 sec. Thanks

    Does it come back on right away when you start it again? or do you have to wait awhile?

    If you don't have to wait awhile and it comes right back on when you start it again, then your dryer control board has gone bad.

    Here's the one for your model you can order here:

    Its located in your console#10 here:

    Then it should fix yours as well if you have the exact same model#.

    Did you open your dryer to see if you have any excessive lint build-up especially near or on the motor?
