How to Replace Heating Element from a Maytag Dryer?


The procedure is as follows:--- 1) First of all unplug the dryer from electric outlet for safety reasons.
2) Locate the vent hose on the rear of the dryer and disconnect this hose from dryer unit.
3) The hose is mostly fixed in a metal clamp and the metal clamp is fixed by the screw. Loosen the screw and remove the clamp and remove the hose.
4) The heating element is located in the cabinet.
5) In some models the cabinet is located at the rear of the dryer. And in some model its located in the front of the dryer.
6) Locate the heating element cabinet and remove the screws holding the cabinet.
7) You will see the heating element now. There are wires connecting on the sides of the heating element terminals. The wires are connected by removable connector.
8) Remove the connector carefully from heating element with the help of needle nose plier.
9) After the wires are removed from heating element’s terminals. Remove the screws holding the heating element.
10) The heating will have to be moved a bit to come out easily. Before removing the heating element out. Please note down the position of old heating element. So while placing the new heating element you don’t face any problem.
11) Remove the old heating element and insert the new heating element.
12) Connect all the wires as it were connected before.
13) Refit all the parts which you removed while removing the old heating element in reverse method. Take care you don’t miss any part fitting.
This will help. Thanks.

Dryer spins but won't get hot. Bad heating element? If so , where is it located?


Check your circuit breaker. It may not be your dryer at all. 220 dryers run on two separate circuits one to run the motor the other to run heating element.

My Maytag model LDE312 dryer heats up but doesn't seem to get hot enough. It takes 2 hours or more to dry. Is this a thermostat or heating element problem?


Could be a blockage in the exhaust. If the clothes are coming out hot but still damp after the first cycle then there is a blockage in the exhaust in the dryer. This blockage could be where the lint filter is or in the exhaust vent to the outside of the unit. The best thing to do is pull the unit from the wall and access the back panel. Remove the back panel and with a wet/dry vac clear out the inside of the unit. Then check for a lint blockage in the hose that is connected to the back of the dryer. That should have corrected your problem If an element goes out there is no heat at all and I doubt the thermostat would go out like that Maytags are rare to have a thermostat just go out

Hope this helped

My maytag dryer heating element gets hot but motor will not run


Sounds like you have something shorted out.

The element issue could be a contact fused shut.
With both problems I would be looking for wires melted together, or a relay/sequencer welded shut melted etc.

You do have a potential fire hazzard here. If after removing the panel you cannot locate the problem, do not run the unit.

Maytag Atlantis electric dryer Model


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Dryer runs but does not dry my cloths.


Hello, If the dryer appears to be running ok but will not heat you probably have a bad heating element or switch. Usually the heating element.
