Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
Maytag MDE9557AYW isn't heating. I removed the heat element and verified conntinuity through the thermal fuse (0.4 ohms) and it both looks and smells OK). I also did the heating element (10.7 ohms), and once again, it looks and smells good, i.e. not burnt. There's no lint build up and the system blows air through the vigorously.
You never mentioned if you checked the large klixon mounted above the heater.If it is bad you will have no heat but the dryer will run. If the thermal fuse (mounted on the right hand side of the heater chamber, 2 white wires) is bad then the dryer simply will not run. If it is good then the next thing you need to check is the control thermostat mounted on the blower housing. While down there check to see if that wheel is loose. If the control thermostat is ok then you have a bad contact inside the timer. Sometimes you can clean the contacts in the timer like cleaning points on a car.
