Hello, My name is Juan. I will need help to find the problem with some suggestions. My dryer won't start at all, even when I open the door the light bulb inside the drum did not turn on. I check the power source it is ok. Please help with alternatives for a solution. Maytag electric dryer Mod # PYET344AYW

You are always better off using steel on these kinds of conversions and do not worry about how hot it gets,..Aluminum will get hot too. Steel is more rigid and less likely to dimple in while installing or hooking up the external vent system... Hope this helps..

You cannot simply jump out the thermal fuse ---simply take apart your dryer --wash out the entire Dryer --motor heating element, ducts, all of it with a garden hose to remove all lint---do not attempt to do anything else until you allow it to completely dry out, this will not hurt any of it as long as you allow it to dry although you should then relubricate the motor and bearings. once you do this you should replace the thermal fuse --which is located below the heating element when you take it out. I have found that the thermal fuse kit (part #La-1053) works very nicely for this as you actually get two fuses (which you could save one for a spare) it costs 22.95 from Cheapappliance parts.com with a shipping cost of $5.95. Trust me this should cure your Problem-- I have fixed hundreds of these and they all seem to suffer from this same Problem which comes from the excess build-up of link which causes it to overheat and BLOw the fuse.. This is why it is very important to CLEAN it out -----otherwise it will blow the fuse out again in a no time..
HOPE this HELPS>>>
