Lets start simple on this,first check your dryer vent for obstructions(mainly lint build up,)also check the weather flap (where your unit vents to the outside)this should swing open when the unit is in operation.either one of these can cause excessive heat build up in the unit.(this will cause the thermal limit switch to shut the unit down)thus keeping you from setting your clothes on fire.hope this helps,thanx for using fix-ya

I want to build a connection 30am breaker for dryer in my house


Honestly, thats something you would need to contact an electricain about due to permits and law requirements as far as wire soze for what distance, etc. For as long as I've been doing this line of work, going on 12-13 years, the breaker for the dryer has always been located outside near the meter with all the other 220 vac breakers.

Maytag dryer is less than 3 years old. Blew thermal fuse. Cleaned all of the venting inside and out. dryer still overheating and blowing the thermal fuse. Replaced the thermal fuse and the high temp sensor...


Have you tried replacing the operating thermastat it's what shuts it off at the right temp and would cause the thermal fuse to go if it is not shuting.off at the right temp. It happens.
Hope this helps.

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


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!

Very high heat and timer won't advance


Stop !!! You are creating a much larger problem by trying to fix this at this point.To correct the problems it has now is not going to be practical to cost.My advise is to push this aside before you have a disaster.Buy a new /used dryer that is working and when it does need a repair you let me know,do not try to repair anything your not sure of because it makes it impossible to correct the added problems at a low cost.
