Question about Dryers
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!
