Question about Maytag HYE3658AY Electric Dryer
My dryer has been overheating. I checked the fuses, the thermostat, and the heating element. All the components have continuity.
I tested the leads going to the heating elements. When i put on the heat their is 120V going through the heating element and 22 Amperes going through the heating element.
The power seems to be ok, but can the motor still be causing the heating element to overheat. What test can i do to properly test the motor?
Or can it still be another problem other then other components that i checked.
My dryer was working perfectly fine, but I think i had way too much laundry this day. anyhow, it just stopped working. the weird thing is the timer still runs I turn it to 90 and then it stops at 0. WEIRD!! i had my dad and husband take it apart, but of course we are reading the blueprints and tring to find matching numbers but no can do. we give up. HELP

Hello humberguy. From the description noteing voltage & amprege( unit not 220v) I suggest checking the air intake & excaust. duckng. A preventive maintance maybe in need. A PM would be taking the unit to a air compressor and using a hand held air gun to blow the insides out. In the drum are wings, on the out side are pluds in the drum aligned with the wings, remove the wing and remve the cloth balls. I advise you wear a mask over your face it will be dusty. Good luck & let me know if this solved the problem.
