Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
My dryer is just cold air when in cycle I was told by maytag that the fuse probably needs to be changed how do i do this?
It could be a thermal fuse, or it could be your element. the only way to know for sure ( without just replacing parts ) is to test them with an ohm meter on tone.
to get to these parts, you need to open the door and remove the 4 screws ( 2 on either side ). then you can remove the front panel. you now have access to the element and the thermal fuse which is on the element canister.
if you get tone, then the part is good. Joe

You really need a volt / ohm meter to check for Continuity & Volts
Its well worth the investment... $15.00 bucks give or take a few
I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer,
If dryer is getting only 1 leg 110 volts instead of the 220 will it not heat.
Check themostates & heater for Continuity... Most models, Now have a.. Hi-limit fuses that need to be checked for Continuity
