Question about Maytag Neptune MCE8000AY Electric Dryer
Hi Bean. Love that guy!!!!
I have a NO HEAT problem. Measured the element and the other two switches on the boad with the element. The two switches read 0 ohm and the element read 13 ohms. Still no heat. Did the reset to the logic board. Still no heat. Vents are really clean now. Still no heat. Any other things to look at or is it time to call THE MAN?
I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. Look for a thermal cut-out, thermal fuse, along with the Hi-Limit Thermostat inside the dryer. Some manufacturers call them thermisters. These components act as fuses and are designed to protect the dryer heating circuits from overheating. If these components fail, they will open like a fuse. They are not resettable (one shot) and must be replaced. The manufacturer places a wiring diagram inside the operator console. These components should be listed on that diagram, and are generally mounted in close proximity to the heating element. The manufacturer also recommends that you replace the hi-limit thermstat and the thermal cut-out (fuse) together if either is found to be bad. They are commonly sold as a set. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your complete model number the components I mention are listed under the "Cylinder, Heater and Bulkhgead" heading as items 17 and 21. I hope this helps you. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Tips for a great answer:
If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Hope this helps...
