Admiral Dryer (Model # ADE7005AYW) wire connector burning causing no heat

I took apart my dryer about a month ago to find a black wire that connects to the heating element was burned and the terminal was no longer connected. I cut the wire past the burned copper and connected a new male end. The dryer worked for about two weeks and then it produced no more heat. I took it apart to find the same problem. I tested the thermostat which at first jumps all over the place but settles at about .7-.9. I tested the cut out which was around 1. I then tested the heating element which was around 10-11. I'm not sure if any or all of these need to be replaced. Something is causing the wire to get so hot that it melts so I would suspect the thermostat is not working, however the resistance is close to zero. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    i have a admiral maytag ade7005ayw dryer that is not spinning, just started doing this

    Exact same issue i do believe although Im still trying to figure out how to get the dryer open enough to take a close look at it. But I undid all the bolts on the bottom and was able to pull the bottom sheet metal back enough to reach in and find a black wire going to the thermostat was not connected. After closer investigation I saw it was burned badly. Any assistance would be appreciated.

I had the same problem with my dryer. Fixed it with high temp wire (875 F) and end connectors rated for the same temperature. Make good connections between the wire and the connectors because if they are poor they will heat up as well. Sometimes the thermostat will cause this problem as well or an older heating element that is going bad.

Usual cause is the male terminal loose on the female - squeeze it a bit with pliers. even if stats are faulty, should not cause terminal to burn out. terminal overheats because of a high resistance joint

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.

Can't open Admiral ADE7005AYW


Try sliding a thin putty knife rearward at each front corner of the top while lifting upward slightly. Shine a light into the joint and look for metal joining the two halves. Once the top is loose, look for screws in the inside front edges and lift up on the front panel to release. Make sure to pull the power plug while working in there.

AMANA dryer model ALE643RBW burnt wire


I would think that:

Low voltage. A lack of proper voltage increases the current flow (amps) and can cause overheating, thus, a burnt wire. Remember, the lower the voltage, the higher the amps.

Bad connection. Poor connections can cause small amounts of arcing, thus burning the connection. This adds resistance to the circuit which causes a possible voltage drop and, again overheating due to higher amps.

Since all that equipment is on the same circuit, I would really think it is a voltage drop situation. With everything calling for power at the same time, the breaker trips. In some cases, it may be just enough for the breaker not to trip but still have a low voltage situation.

There is the possibility of an over current, such as a power spike from the power company but it would have to happen more than just a time or two.
And the outside chance that lighting got into the system when it struck something close to you home but it, in almost every case, would destroy something else, usually electronic. (This has happened to me. Trashed my dryer, dishwasher, and answering machine.)

Good luck and hope this helps. Le me know how you come out.

The black wire burnt off on the line going into the heating elem


No, you do not need to remove the drum. But you will need to remove the cover from the blower assembly. Using a volt meter, check the elements continuity to determine if it is bad or good.
