Panel lights go on but buttons do not respond
For model number MDG5500AWW
PartSelect logo
Hi Steven, Thank you for your question. If the buttons on the control panel do not respond, the issue is either with the control panel or the electronic control board. You will need to test the ribbon cable on the control panel for continuity with a multimeter to see if it is working correctly. If the control panel is fine, check the electronic control board. If there is corrosion where the ribbon cable attaches to the electronic control board, then the electronic control board will need to be replaced. If you have any questions, please let us know. We are open 7 days a week. We look forward to hearing from you!

I'm on propane. When the start button is pressed, there is a hum, but desn't start. Today, there was a burning smell. I am assuming it is the motor. Is this correct and not repairable and need to purchase a new dryer, or not? Thanks
For model number MDG5500AWW

Hello Dave, thank you for contacting us. We have researched the model, and it seems like the issue might be with the drive motor, part number PS3500892. Over time, the motor windings may get weak or damaged, causing it to not generate enough power to rotate the drum. You may check the motor for burned out windings to verify the fault. The drive motor is replaceable and you may not have to purchase a new dryer. We hope this information helps!

Hello Danny, thank you for the great question. Unfortunately, you just have a failed touchpad. If unplugging the dryer for 60 seconds did not reset the electronics, you will need to order and replace the touch control panel, part number PS2036215, to fix this problem. Thank you for your inquiry, good luck with this repair!

Dryer ran but would not heat
PartSelect showed seven different possibilities why the dryer wouldn't heat. I removed the two screws to remove the bottom panel and turned the dryer on and noticed that the heating element that ignites the gas was working fine. This meant that it was not getting gas so it could be the gas valve or one of the two gas valve coils which are located on top of the gas valve. I borrowed my neighbor"s ohm meter and touched the two probes on the coils terminals to check for continuity and found that one of the coils read zero. I then took both of the coils out by removing two screws and tested each coil again. One coil read 500-850 and the other read zero. This meant that it was no good so I called for the part and received it in three days. I reassembled the parts and turned the dryer on and it fired up after a few seconds. It works as good as new. The part plus shipping was less than $30. My repairman would have charged me $150-$200. While the dryer was apart I gave it a good cleaning with a vacuum and a toothbrush in delicate areas. I also removed and cleaned the lint trap housing by removing two nuts. I didn't know much about gas dryers, but thanks to PartSelect I easily fixed it myself.
