Trying to checking heating element and thermostats

Removed the screws to the rear panel and it appears that on the top inner corner is tack welded. Also the sides do not feel like it wants to pull out, it did look like it might be the paint holding it on.

How do I remove it, without damaging anything.

One is top and other is front panel.3) Both the panels are secured by clips in between them.4) Take a putty knife and insert it in between the top panel and the front panel of the dryer. Press the retaining clips with knife and separate the top and front panel by Lifting up on one corner of the top panel to release the opposite retaining clip.5) After the clips are pressed both the panels will easily get separated. But take care there will be a connecting wires between the panels. You don’t have to pull that wire while separating the panels.6) You will see the door switch on the upper right side corner area of the front panel.7) Remove the wire harness from the door switch carefully.8) The remove the flange of the front panel to the side panel on each side by removing the screws.9) The front panel will get separated from dryer after removing the screws.10) Now with the help of screw driver remove the screws holding the drum bulkhead of the dryer.11) Now push the idler pulley between the drum and the motor assembly with you hand to loosen the belt tension.12) The belt will easily come out one you loosen the belt tension.13) After the belt is out.

How do I diagnose a problem with a dryer that works but is not getting hot? It's a Maytag MDE2600AYW


Since the dryer runs, the thermal fuses are fine making a possible open circuit condition in any of the heating element, the cycling thermostat, and the high-limit thermostat. Remove the front panel to access the cycling thermostat on the blower housing, the high-limit thermostat on the heating element enclosure, and the heating element itself. Once accessed, check the continuity of the high-limit thermostat and the large terminals of the cycling thermostat. There should be continuity on both parts. Use a volt-ohmmeter and set it to the R X 1 scale. Continuity means zero resistance. Replace the part found with no continuity, i.e., open.

Check the resistance of the heating element using the same volt-ohmmeter set to the R X 1 scale. Replace the heating element should its resistance reads infinite (open).

The front panel can be removed by removing the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer. Reinstall it in reverse of the removal steps.

How do you replace the heating element in a Maytag PYE-2300


Unplug the dryer cord.
Use a putty knife to release the 2 spring clamps holding the top lid to the front panel. They will be about 2 inches in from the right and left sides where the top meets the front.
Raise the top lid and fold it towards the rear of the dryer.
The heating element will be in the back left corner.
Remove the hi-limit thermostat on top of the element. Remove the element retaining screw and remove the element.
You should replace the hi-limit thermostat also.

My GE dryer was making some squeaking sound and now the heat does not work and clothes are not getting dry


Check the dryer dual-breakers in the house electrical panel--push off, then on. If no help, check for ~230 volts AC at the two slanted slots in the dryer power socket. If ok, the problem is likely the heating element(s) in back of the drum are burned out or the internal thermostat is open. To remove the drum, remove the top (push a thin putty knife rearward at each front corner to release latches) and then the front panel. The belt must be released (from inside the lower back) and the rear center screws of the drum removed. When the drum is removed, it gives access to the elements and temp control switches. Be sure to vacuum out all air passages and wash the lint filter in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits. Don't forget the air exit hose to the outside. Replace the belt on reassembly if heat damaged or badly worn. Hope this helps!

It would appear that the main oven element is not working. I had a power cut whilst using the oven recently and have only just realised that the oven will not heat up. Everything else is working ok. If it...


If it is a fan forced oven, the element is round in shape and goes around the fan blade on the back wall of oven.
To replace: Turn off power!!
-Remove side racks from oven, then remove rear panel.
-You should now see fan blade and fan element.
-You need to remove oven from cavity, then remove rear outer panel.
-You can now access element- it will be held in place by 2 small nuts either side of element wiring connections. Disconnect element wires, unscrew nuts. Element is now removed!
Reverse procedure to reassemble and test. If oven is heating OK, also check main oven thermostat is regulating temperature (ie clicks on and off), as sometimes thermostat can fail if element has blown

Trying to find heating element on dryer


You have to pull the three screws that secure the top to the back. Then you have to slide the top off and remove the front panel. The heating element is on the bottom right side of the machine. Once you have it off, replace the thermostats and it usually works fine. I keep having to replace mine, as my outside "bird" filter gets clogged and the thing loves to trip.
