Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer has no heat on any setting after house fuse blew.

I just purchased a used dryer that is 3yrs old but has only been used about a year. (has been in storage) For the first 2 weeks it worked great, then our fuse blew in the house. We changed the fuses and now the dryer won't heat at any setting. Is there a fuse in the dryer that may have blown also or is there a reset button any where? The dryer is a Maytag Ensignia Dryer Model No. MDE6657BYW. If you have any answers or suggestions they would be greatly appreciated. This also happened with our old dryer too. As soon as it blew a fuse in the house it didn't heat as well as before.

We got the problem with our dryer figured out. After checking possible solutions on-line, we checked the power going into the dryer with a ohm tester and discovered we weren't getting full power that we expected. Just after changing the fuses in the house the first time we heard a snap sound but the fuses appeared to be fine, but no heat to the dryer. When we discovered we weren't getting full power we used the ohm tester to test the fuses indiviually and discovered one of the fuses were bad. Put in a new fuse and wala! the dryer is putting out heat. Thank you so much for the service you provide to "do-it-yourselfers" like us!

Drum does not rotate!


Good day,
Yes, it sounds like a broken belt.
To replace it, remove the lint filter on top, and remove the 2 screws under it.
With a narrow screw driver, pop one side of the li, then the other.
Now rotate the lid up but do not go above vertical.
There are 2 screws holding the front panel on at the top.
Remove the 2 screws, and then unplug the door switch wires. and the support clip for them.
With the front tilted an inch or 2 lift the front panel up and off.

Here is an excellent tutorial.

The belt can be purchased at any appliance parts house.
IMPORTANT> On some of the newer models the belt tensioner was nothing more than a piece of spring metal.
It will be found on the bottom right side of the dryer floor.
If that's the style, it's a known deficient part, and must be replaced with the old version with has a wheel.
A good counterman will know all about it. Take the old one with you.

Transported a fridge on its side, waited 24hrs, plugged in.


Transporting frig on side probably damaged the compressor due to the oil inside draining from bottom. Do you know if the bulbs were working before you purchased? If they were you may have damaged the door switch, easy fix, just replace. Compressor replacement should be left to a pro. Probably looking at a couple hundred. One other thought is you might have caused a gas leak during transporting, another job for a pro.

Our dryer is working fine until it trips the switch.


If tripping of the switch means the circuit breaker is tripping, then yes, the problem may be in the heater box, or may be the motor. It could also be some faulty wiring though, and a good tech could easily determine what is causing the failures.

Wont start


try turning the drum by hand...is it jammed? if not, then: the motor will not turn due to a number of reasons: 1.) simply burned out copper windings 2.) switch not turning on motor or not turning on motor starting circuit-depending on design ...if jammed, then try to find the interference to turning
