To fix a Maytag dryer, contact the manufacturer to determine whether the dryer can be repaired under the warranty. If the warranty is expired, it is necessary to troubleshoot the dryer to identify the problem and make the necessary repairs.
- Contact the manufacturer
Locate the serial number, typically found inside the door on the body of the dryer, and contact the manufacturer to determine whether the dryer is covered by a warranty. If the dryer is covered, the company may provide repair services free of charge.
- Test the dryer
It is often necessary to troubleshoot the dryer to identify the specific problem if the dryer isn't covered by a warranty. The thermal fuse, power cord and circuit breaker can be examined to determine if these parts are causing the problem. Cleaning the dryer can remedy some problems, such as a grinding noise that is caused by debris inside the machine.
- Repair the dryer
Basic tools, such as a screwdriver and a continuity tester, as well as replacement parts, are necessary to fix the dryer. Install the parts, and run the dryer for a cycle to determine whether the repairs were successful.
