FIND THE THERMAL FUSE AND OVERLOAD PROTECTOR 0N THE QUIET SERIES200 MAYTAG DYER-I SMELLED BURNING WIRES BEFORE THE DYER SHUT DOWN AND WOULD NOT START AGAIN


If you can't find or follow the wiring diagram and have or use a tester you shouldn't even be trying to fix it. Find a parts breakdown and then the location of the parts should be pretty easy to find.
assuming the motor is shot is not the way to go about a repair.
goin for the plug with the diagram to find the problem with the correct meter for the task before you.

Maytag dyer problems


it sounds like the control board is going bad but i wouldn't buy any parts for this dryer,soon you won't be able to get parts for it,put the money into a new dryer not to mention that the neptune products is what took maytag out and now whirlpool owns maytag.you could also have a problem with one of the connections or a bad wire in one of the connections and when you move the wires it's working again and this could be from the heat,after years the wires get brittle,you could buy the new board,put it in and if it's a wire you're back to square one,but from what you say it's either a wire in one of the connections or the board.good luck with your dryer.

Change a three wire to a four wire.


To change from a three to a four wire cord you will need to remove the ground wire/strap that is currently connected to the center connection at the back of the dryer. This ground wire is going to look like a flat piece of either copper or aluminum that connects to the center peg and is screwed to the dyer cabinet right next to the cord terminal block SAVE THE SCREW. Doing this separates the electrical neutral and the cabinet ground.

Now when connecting the four wire cord, put the red and black wires on the outer connection posts (does not matter which goes on which side) and the white neutral wire connects to the center connector. The green or sometimes green with yellow stripe wire from the cord will connect to the cabinet where the ground strap you removed used to connect use the same screw that you removed earlier.

Good luck!

Maytag gas dyer Model# pyg3360aww Serial# 10345972an the cylinder will not spin, took off top of dyer and the belts are broken. what do i do.


Remove the broken belts and take then with you to a local appliance parts store. Also write down the make, model & serial # of the unit to ensure the correct part can be found on the shelves, and ordered if not in stock. If you need assistance putting the belts back on, let us know.

If the unit is still under warranty, you can get Maytag at 1 (800) 344-1274 U.S. to pay for them too. If it is, you should call Maytag directly to get the free replacement parts. I found your owner's manual and it says any part on the dryer is guaranteed for 1 year. Here's the link below.

I'm replacing the existing 3 wire cord with a 4 wire cord on a Maytag LDE312. I assume the green wire goes to the external connection on the chassis, AND ALSO the jumper (aluminum tab) must be removed from...


This is correct. When using a three wire cord, you leave the tab in place and this ties the neutral and ground together.
With a four wire cord arrangement, you remove the tie tab. The white (neutral) wire goes to the middle terminal, and the green goes to the chassis ground. The hot wires will always be the outside leads and connect to the outside terminals.
Best regards, --W/D--

Need to change power cord on maytag dryer from 3 prong to 4


Always disconnect electricity before beginning this process.

All the 4 wire cords I have seen are color-coded. The white wire goes to the middle terminal, the green wire goes to any screw you can reach that goes into the metal case of the dyer. The red and black go to the outside terminals of the block and while it doesn't matter which color goes to which terminal I usually follow the color code of the interior dryer wiring that already exists. Good Luck.

Dyer turns on and sounds normal goes through whole cyle and never heats up


I had that happen. On one, the heat sensor needed replacing. On another, the heating element wire was broken and I had to replace the whole wire.
