    The admiral dryer I have just did the same thing today; First it seems like a problem with overheating. Clean out the duct and check breakers; If you have a AC/ Volt meter check for current to outlet....Carefull as it is 240V.

    The most likely culprit is the High Limit fuse. Once the Hi Temp thermostat over heats due to clogging of ductwork, the Hi Temp fuse blows so that the unit doesn't catch on fire. There is no repair except replace the Fuse.

    You can get both a sensor and a fuse at, about $30 dollars and 30-60 minutes and it should work fine.

Dryer needs a new motor. I changed the thermal fuse and the dryer worked for a minute then stopped without the ability to restart.

If an "Admiral" dryer stops getting warm or hot, wouldn't it be the hot/warm selector switch?

it could be the element burnt or restricted venttube or maybe even a burnt wire from the pigtail take the cover off where the pigtail goes into the dryer and see if one of the wires burnt

You will need to replace the heating element and the thermostat. They come in a kit and is a simple job to replace them. Here is a link to the kit.

Admiral heavy duty super capacity dryer won't heat up.

see this causes , fix it. God bless you, use the common sense
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door Switch

If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.

Thermal Fuse / Thermal Cut out

On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel or behind the front panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing or is sometimes round and made of metal and plastic.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse this is the most common reason for blowing the fuse. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)


Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

I have a maytag admiral dryer (ade7000ayw) stopped working over tonight? It's plugged in and the outlet has power.

The thermal fuse is what the problem very likely is. It is located on the side of the heater housing on the upper part of the back wall of rear drum support. To check it UNPLUG DRYER,remove the 2 white wires on the right side of where the heat element goes and check the thermal fuse for continuty (zero ohms resistiance) using a meter set to measure ohms of resistiance

I have an Admiral ADE7005AYW that will not start. We have checked the plug and it is fine but the dryer will not turn on or light up. What could be the problem?

I f the cord is ok where it connects inside the dryer then There are several other things that could cause this.
A couple of the more common things to check are:

1. You could have a defective door switch. you can check the switch with an ohm meter for continuity.

2. You could also have a bad thermal fuse.Also check this thermal fuse for continuity. this fuse shuts the dryer down if it over heated. if the thermal fuse is bad check your venting for blockage or crimping.

Kenmore Washer Model 417 44052400 will not turn on at all. Only sign of life is a beep when press the reset/cancel button. Any suggestions?

first of all check with an electric meter to see if the proper voltage is going into the dryer from the outlet
If you have proper voltage from the wall outlet (in USA it's mostly 240 volts for a standard full size dryer) then check where the pigtail, cord, goes into the back of the dryer to insure the connections are tight.
If all of the above checks out as good then my first thought would be the start button since the power goes straight from the cord to the start button then proceeds to the dryer components.

Hope this helped
