The fuse mounts on the right hand side of the heat element on the top rear of the dryer inside. It has 2 white wires going to it. It's mounting clip is held onto the side of the heat chamber with the same screw which holds down the element. To get to it start here:

Go ahead and remove the front panel and clean out the filter housing. Check the blower for looseness.4f0ecf5.jpg
Get the dryer stopped in the middle of a load - 07d491b.jpge vent:07d491b.jpg
These problems are what causes the fuse to blow.

My Maytag Performa won't run at all


I looked up your model. The blower wheel on these 31001317
causes the dryer to over heat. The fuse kit LA-1053 mounts here:e930c75.jpg

Maytag washer squeaks when spin cycle stops


We have a Maytag Performa G3300 that we bought on 8/13/2001. It still works great, but on 2/25/10 it stopped heating. We found that by removing the front panel and vacuuming the accumulated lint on the inside of the dryer and the door, the problem was resolved. There were no parts to replace, just vacuuming.

Maytag performa dryer suddenly stopped working, as if no power. i replaced both fuses and it worked. ran for about 15 mins and stopped again. any suggestions?


did it blow the fuses a second time.try this .put your dryer on a cycle that wont call for heat and turn it on.if the heat strips are not on and it still blows a fuse it is the motor.if the heat strips are on and it blows a fuse the heat strips are the trouble.

Maytag performa dryer doesn't fully heat


A couple of suggestions. STOP, be sure the gas it turned off before disconnecting the line. Move it to an open area and check all venting. A good cleaning makes a huge difference. I believe your problem to be the heating coil is on it's way out, "works sometime". Write down the Make, Model, Seriel Number & Year of MFG...someone may ask for it..Check Your local appliance store for price & availablity Easy to replace on most model dryers.
When reattaching the gas line, be safe not to overtighten the coupler. A safe test for leaks is NOT a match... a drop or two of dishsoap around the fittings will bubble if it is not sealed. Good Luck
