I am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

My Maytag dryer, model LDE 712, seems to complete the cycle in all selections, but does not stop when finished. This is so in both the automatic and timed selection. Advancing the timer manually to the...


Most likely the timer is bad. The contacts in there get badly carboned up/pitted over time and will sometimes not make contact when they should. You could try using a small nail file to clean them. Only problem is there are quite a few in there. It may be more cot efective to get a rebult unit.

Maytag dryer drum not rotating


Sounds like the belt that turns the drum has slipped off or broken. Not sure if I would consider this a DIY project, but if this is the problem, a professional fix should not cost much.

Dryer not heating. It's a Maytag LDE 312 Series 7 dryer.


Check out the entire venting exhaust tubes for lint build up. A moister sensor will detect any lint build up and keep the heat off. It is a saftey precaution dryers have to prevent fires starting in the home

Maytag Dryer Model #LDE 4916 ACE. Dryer won't start


Sorry, no reset button. If it ran a bit without the belt, it may have overheated and blown one of the thermal fuses. You can find schematics and diagrams at

Good luck.

Dryer element stays warm


If it heats w/ the timer in off position whenever plugged in the the element is shorting to ground, its most likely due to either a broken coil or a cracked insulator. If heating w/ timer set for drying but motor is not running, the heat circuit thru the centrifugal/start switch on the motor is stuck closed.

4 wire cord for Maytag lde 410


There is usually a metal strap or a wire from the enter terminal to the dryer cabinet. Remove and discard that. Attach the green (ground) wire the the cabinet. White (neutral) to the center terminal, and red to one of the other terminals and black to the other. (both are "hot" wires)

Maytag model


You really need a volt / ohm meter to check for Continuity & VoltsIts 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 they have to be replaced
