Default Buzzer continues and won't reset
Model Number: DE303   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


When a cycle finished this morning the buzzer went off and would not stop until I opened the door. Upon closing the door the buzzer started again. I then turned the timer to once again have remaining time and then closed the door. It started running without pushing the timer knob. It turns off upon opening the door and starts up when closed.

It appears some auto off feature associated with the timer isn't working. Any ideas on what could be causing this or how to attempt a repair short of replacing the expensive timer?

Thanks,

Guido

Question

Could it be possible that some contact in the timer mechanism isn't clearing contact? Or is there some other contact outside of the timer mechanism?

Guido,

Unfortunately sounds like the timer has gone bad. You can disconnect the buzzer, but it would not fix other problems.

- The part number for the timer is AP4038035

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for MAYTAG DE303 | AppliancePartsPros.com

Thanks, Gene. That what I had figured. But, I hadn't thought about simply disconnecting the buzzer. That will get us back up and going until we decide to either replace the timer or the whole dryer. The timer works fine other than the issues that I mentioned. With the buzzer disconnected it still runs through which ever cycle we choose and stops correctly.

Check to see if the start button is stuck.

How do you remove the dial? I have a new timer and ti is threaded on the shaft end.
