Maytag MDE3500AYW heat selector switch fried

Switch 33002526 is no longer made. This dryer is only 8 years old. It is in great shape otherwise. Can't find this part anywhere. Part 33001640 is for a MDE2600AYW look exactly the same but has one more terminal mark OR(orange?) Will this switch work? It would be an absolute crime to send this perfectly good dryer to the land fill because we cant find a $15 switch. Can it just be wired direct red to black to regular heat? That is all that is used 95% of the time anyway.

Well you have 4 wires right? Neutral or N is white most of the time and marked on back side of the switch will be N (might be purple) so that is 1 wire next all you have to do is put 1 more wire to that one and you have heat. Individually tape off the other 2 wires. Make it work in cotton only. or perma press only.

    If the partstore has it then I highly recommend you get it from there. Nice company.

Maytag dryer does not heat.


If the dryer comes on but doesn't heat, it is probably the heating element. If the dryer doesn't come on at all, it most likely is the dryer's motor.

I have a Maytag PYG3200AWW and it won't start.


Sounds like a problem with a limit control switch. Some are manual reset and some are automatic . Not sure about yours. They are located of course, in-line within the wiring harness limiting the amount of heat build-up within the machine. If yours had been running with a stopped up, or patially stopped up vent, (and your limit swithch IS AUTO reset,) then the switch could have been cycling the heat numerous times, over that period, preventing overtemperature conditions. This would weaken the switch because it is a safety device and not actually a cycling device. Also, in the vent exhaust, @ the back of the machine there may be a limit switch. And of course, it could always be the start button..........

Buzzer will not shut off when load is done


If your dryer also starts without pressing the start switch, then the push to start switch
contacts are stuck in the closed position. Sometimes you can press the button on-off-on-off
quickly to unjam the contacts, otherwise replace switch.

Maytag PYE3300AYW Elec Dryer Runs, But No Heat


hello kellygubser,
If you are sure the thermal switch is ok.. have you checked the high temp ( bi metal snap switch) too? Here is a link to the wiring diagram of your dryer. You can see that there are a few other temp switches in circuit of the heating element that would disble it.. Hope this helps
