I have a maytag gas dryer MGDC300XW3. Last week it just stopped working. The light turns on when I open the door, but the motor doesn’t even try to turn on when I start it. I have checked the thermal fuse, the door switch, and the starter switch and all of them work. I’m not sure what to check next?

Hi,

Your timer sounds like the problem, but lets verify that.:)

Here's the timer for your model:
WP8566184 Timer


Do you have your wiring diagram? If not, this is the wiring diagram for your model: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Qp9uAkThOg_mOx7RYmJaJ5GANw4LFeHW/view?usp=sharing

Unplug the dryer, then check for continuity on the timer terminals between BK and BU and between T and W with the timer on timed dry. If either reads open replace the timer.

There is a video on how to access the timer when you click the link to the timer I posted above.

Let us know what you find.

Jake
