My dryer is not doing anything

I have a maytag electric dryer model number pye4500azw ,this is the number inside the door.i noticed it seemed to be taking longer to dry the clothes ,a couple of weeks ago i came home and my daughter said her clothes had been in the dryer for 3 hours and weren't dry so i felt the vent in the back and there was no air coming out.i cleaned the lent trap and when i put it back in i noticed it didn't click in all the way.i took the front of the dryer apart and found it was plugged up solid with lint,all the way to the blower.i cleaned it out and it work great up until yesterday. it stopped working in the middle of its drying cycle.its not doing anything ,the light inside isn't even coming on.the timer seems to be working,when i push the button to start it nothing ,no sound of any kind. i checked the fuse box in the house thought maybe a fuse blew.switched the the stove fuses with the dryer fuses and the stove still worked so i figure its not the fuse box.i took the top off the dryer and looked and the wirs conections to see if any where burnt or broken they where ok,i thought maybe they had got to hot from the dryer being plugged with i'm not really sure on what else to look at.hope you can help thank you.hope this wosen't to long.

    I have a Maytag model PYR4500AZW, about 5 years old .It has started to blow its 30 amp fuses.The fuse does not blow right away as soon as you turn it on but after some time. Sometime it blows after 2 minutes and at other times it runs fine for 2 hours.There are no loose wires or any sign of overheating in the fusebox.If some one has a solution it would be greatly appreciated

    good call on the thermal fuse. had to take out a screw holding in the element, and the bracket holding the thermostat, but it was easily removed after that.

    a set of $3 alligator clips cable is money well spent!

    Dryer stopped after drying a heavy carpet. Checked all house fuses. Nope.
    I have not yet opened the dryer top to check heat sensor. Is this a regular house type fuse ?

Lonewolf, it's possible that the thermal fuse has opened. You need to lift the top and look in back where the heater is. On the right side of the heating element there will be a thermostat. Just below that thermostat you will see the thermal fuse..about 4 inches down. If this is bad, your dryer will not run. Check it with a meter or jump it out to see if that is the problem. Be careful and unplug the unit while testing or jumping. If this diagram attaches look at number back.

My door on the dryer is letting out moisture. It seems to be bowed out. I put a new screw into the one that was lost but it is not repaired. What do I do? This is a Maytag dryer LDE8704ACE. It has a front...

There is a front panel seal ($3.11) and a door seal ($3.20) that you can replace. If the hinges are not worn out, these two parts should fix the dryer. If you go to and enter your model number, you will see every part inside your dryer. you can order the parts from this site also.

Electric Maytag Neptune Dryer - rattling noise

Your probably going to have to remove the rear panel and take a look to see what is causing the noise.
Disconnect the power cord and exhaust tube, remove the rear panel and check for anything loose.
You can also pop the lid and fold it back to inspect the top of the tub and belt. Roll the drum all the way around and inspect the belt for "chunks" missing.
If you include your model number, I can send you a web site that will show you an exploded view of the dryer.

Maytag Dryer Model SDG305DAWW

The model listed above your post is the Gas version. Look inside the door and write down the correct number for the electric model. I do believe there was some blockage in the exhaust leading the hot air outside and it has damaged the part number 40113801 Thermal Fuse High Limit
Let me know, so I can help you better, my sites are listed below,
you can enter the model or part number in the search feature and go directly to it, Thanks and rate me if this is helpful, Sea Breeze

Maytag front load dryer thumps while turning, empty, full etc.

If your Maytag is like my Maytag, there are two screws at the two bottom corners of the front panel. Once you remove both screws the front panel will lift out, up, and off. Then you can see what is going on inside.

I have a Maytag dryer, trying to service it, I can't find where the model number is. Front loader electric. I've looked everywhere front back and side.

Open the door, and you should find the details on a label on the flange on the inside of the door opening
Plz rate my solution.
