    On and off switch w10117655... when testing with ohm meter mine reads .955 so is that mean it good or not good
    Hello Shane, Thank you for your inquiry. It should have close to 0 ohms, so you may want to replace the switch. Hope this helps!

    How do i test this switch?
    Hi David, Thank you for your question. Disconnect the power to your appliance. Remove the switch. Press it in to the on position. You can test this part with a multi meter. It should read close to 0 ohms when testing. If your meter does not change or move then the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. Good luck with your repair.

    Hi need help when dryer timer is turn on dryer seems to activate fine and work how ever when i push start button there is no response timer will continue to run and sometimes after a while it will start and work fine ( dryer works fine and other times takes time to start and work ) very concern
    For model number MGD5740TQ0
    Hello Ivy, Thank you for your inquiry. We would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: door switch, drive motor, push to start switch, internal bias and high limit thermostats, and the thermal fuse. You can test the parts with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, there are YouTube videos available to assist you. Hope this helps!

    I removed the push to start switch from my dryer and it does not look like the one pictured. Mine has 4 terminals and the pictured one appears to have only 2 terminals. The part number is the same.
    For model number MED5740TQ0
    Hi Benjamin, Thank you for your question. This switch has 4 terminals. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    Hello i used my dryer last night get was getting hot but i tried to turn it on again to dry some jeans and it wouldn’t cone back on. When i turn the timer knob on and try to start you can’t hear the timer either.Can it be a bad start button or something else?
    For model number WaeD4800XQ1
    Hello and thank you for writing. Have you checked the breaker in your house panel to make sure it did not trip? If this does not fix this problem then your thermal fuse PS11741460 and/or possibly a malfunctioning door switch PS11741701 might be faulty and possibly needs to be replaced. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime.

    Does part # wpw10117655 work with the above model Maytag washer???
    For model number MVWC565FW1
    Hello Donald, thank you for your question. No, this is not compatible with that washer. The start button for this unit is part of the electronic control which is PartSelect Number PS12347924. I hope this helps.

    When you push the start button the dryer comes on but when it is released the dryer cuts off. Is that a defective start switch?
    For model number Medc215e1
    Hi Rick, thank you for your question. That would certainly be the first part to check. You may also want to use a multi meter to test all of your thermostats and thermal fuses. Just to make sure they are working correctly. We hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

        Push to Start switch burned out due to electrical problem
        Unplug from the wall ,remove upper back panel ( watch out for the grounding wire screwed to the panel), pulled off front knob, then twist and pull the switch out. Unplug the burned out switch, plugged in the new one. Re-assembled what I took apart, plugged her up and dried the load that was in the washer. Note: if yours is burned out due to house power surge make sure the timer is working after you replace the switch, you might need one of thoes too.

        Dryer would stop after a very short time when cold, wouldn't keep running at all when hot
        At first I was advised to replace the temperature overload sensors, which I did but didn't fix the problem. After adding the additional information that the dryer would run to full cycle as long as the Start switch was held in I was advised to replace the Start switch.

        It wasn't obvious from the wiring diagram, but if you remove the Start switch and look at the side it shows it contains a solenoid holding circuit that keeps the switch in the "on" mode as long as there is a feedback signal from the temperature overload switches. So if the dryer will run to completion if the switch is held in, replace the Start switch. If it still stops mid-cycle, replace the temperature overload switches.

        The replacement videos were spot on as far as clear and easy to follow instructions for the repair, and all ordered parts were delivered very quickly.

        Thanks for your help PartsSelect!
