Possible that the control board is defective. Remove the board and check the connectors and the wires from the board. If there is dry joints or loose connections this is possible, only if the machine works erratic. If not the board can be a suspect.

Just remove the screws around the vent tube in the back and you can see the belt tensioner laying there on the floor of the dryer.
Most likely someone turned the drum the wrong direction and the belt came off.
The belt goes through the opening in the tensioner and under the idler pulley and then onto the motor drive pulley. Make sure to have the tensioner mounted into the floor first.
It just slides over into a slot and then over to the other side as tension is put on it.

Check your lint filter, exhaust duct, and check if duct flapper is opening fully or not. Allow some time between loads and don't stuff too many clothes.

You probably have a bad high limit by the blower wheel in the front. I recommend a professional repair for this problem. Before hand, check your exhaust and make sure it's all clear. You have to tear the entire dryer apart for this job. If you do take it apart, it looks like this on the blower wheel housing. 50% sure its this. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-thermostat-item-number-ap4045617.aspx

The error is describing a tS code. It is an indication that the thermistor is shorted. The thermistor is the temperature sensing device used on this dryer. Before replacing the thermistor check for a clogged lint screen or dirty vent pipe.If these are clear and you are still getting the code the thermistor would need replaced, the resistance of the thermistor should be about 10K ohms at room temperature.

The thermistor is located on the blower housing in front of the motor.

I had this problem and it turned out my drum was cracked. Look for a crack or unevenness in the drum. You may need to replace it.

If the belt is not off, it may be a loose wire to the sensor that switches the dryer off when the belt is off or broken. Mine had that problem. If that doesn't work you will have to replace the tension pulley sensor.

Remove the screws from the bracket from the vent tube at the back of the dryer.
You can access the belt from there.
If the belt is off then the tensioner will push a switch to shut the dryer down.
Just hook the belt back on or replace the belt whatever needs to be done.
See other posts for this model number on how to connect the belt back if it came off.
They do that when turned the wrong direction.

Are you getting power at the console? Also, check to see if one of the breakers has not tripped. Dryer runs on 220v and you may have tripped one breaker that will show power to the unit but won't let it start.

does it look like this? t5 or ts could be a thermistor code.if you changed out the thermistor you most likely have a bad computer board.there should be a tech sheet in the machine usually in the top console. here's something that might help http://mikemerrittmotors.yuku.com/topic/2255 the machine doesn't run is that correct?i would check the obvious things,open the door and push in on the door switch and make sure that's working correctly,it should click when you push it in,there's a switch on the belt pulley,if the belt broke the dryer won't start,then check the thermal fuse,the thermistor and if they all check good then you have a bad computer board.just have to get in there with a meter and start reading out parts,also make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer,you can check it at the block where the cord connects to the dryer,after that unplug it and check all the other parts for continuity and you have to remove at least one wire off of the part you're checking.also here's the sears site so you can look up your parts if you don't have this site already. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-MDE9700AYW/3048/0151200?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=MDE9700AYW good luck and wish i could help you out more

If it is a belt driven dryer the belt may be spinning on the motor shaft and it may be bad. Hence the burning rubber smell. Have it checked.

Maytag... | Answered on Dec 02, 2011

The OHMS reading confirms that all the coils/elements are in good condition and the fault is relative to a loss of voltage to the element. So when the dryer works there is no feed voltage to the element to heat and so this must be traced from the controller unit. It can be a fault in switching check for failure of relay or line break in wiring to the element.
Please take care when working with live power circuits and attempt ONLY if you can trace the supply voltage feed from the mains supply to the controller and to the element.

Hello there and welcome to fixya
Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. To determine if the heating element is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) To determine if the thermal fuse has blown out,
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

I looked up and there is no E5 error code listed in the tech sheet.

Check it and confirm us.
