    Thanks I will try that you want me to disconect the two terminals from the housing and test a high resistance means good or bad? When I used a jumper wire on other heating components that should of given me results of their functionality right?

  • landintheval Dec 27, 2008

    what i did on the other components ex.. fuse and other... is pulled leads connected jumper to leads only turned on to see if heat develops did one by one no heat at any test

    The heating element should disconnected for both sides and be tested with a OHM meter and it should read a high resistance. A continuity light will glow even if the element is shorted.

First answer is yes; high resistance is good. I am not sure I understand the second question. The reasion one has to isolate the element is to avoid resistance from other parts. This, I believe , is the most likly problem.

Sometimes you have to disconnect elements of the heating system to check continuity ('element's' as in 'parts of').

My maytag neptune dryer doesn't blow any hot air


on top of the heating element on the left side there is a white 2connector part, that is the heater thermal fuse. disconnect the dryer power cord and one wire of the thermal fuse and use a meter to find out if you have continuity to it. if not replace it. also check for burn wires at heating element. also test heating element by disconnecting one wire and using an ohm meter test it at 2 therminals. it shoul measure 10-12 ohms.

WONT HEAT


Unplug the dryer and the first thing to do is check for the presence of 220 volts at the wall outlet. If you lost one leg of the 220 volts, it is possible for your dryer to run but there will not be any heat. Once you verified there is definitely 220 volts at the wall outlet, remove the rear cover. On the lower right hand side you will see a silver canister which contains the heating element. Remove the lower two wires directly from the heating element and check this for continuity. If it is good, on the left hand side of the same canister they often install a thermal safety which may have tripped. Do the same test as with the heating element. Remove the wires and test the thermal safety for continuity. If this is good, move to the blower housing on the left side of the exhaust vent and look for a white piece of plastic which has two wires on it. Remove these two wires and check this item for continuity.

Maytag dryer is not heat up. I think the heating


Hello, There are a couple of variations of the heating element, depending on the series number of your dryer.

Here's a link to the parts list and line drawing so you can verify the proper element you need.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=SDE4606AYW&productCategoryId=0151200&brandId=3048&modelName=MAYTAG-LAUNDRY&diagramPageId=00005&componentDescription=REAR%20BLKHD,%20AIR%20DUCT,%20ROLLER&HTR%20(ELE)&documentId=M0510059&blt=06

If you have a Series 14 dryer, the element part number is #37001134, otherwise, there are a couple of other elements that your particular dryer might use, so check the model number and product tag so you can get the right parts.

You might want to check the element first, to make sure it is defective, before you order replacement parts, as it might be a faulty thermal fuse, which is much less expensive to replace than the heating element.

If you have a multimeter, you can check the fuse to see if it's failed. Be sure to turn the power off and unplug the dryer before removing the back access panel and checking the thermal fuse (see drawing in link above)

With the meter set to measure resisitance (Ohms) you can put a test lead on each side of the thermal fuse and if you get a reading showing no continuitity, then the thermal fuse is blown and needs to be replaced.

You can also check the heating element using the same method, again, make sure the dryer is unplugged before testing the continuity of the heating element, if you don't get a continuity reading, then the heating element is bad too.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Maytag MDE3757 electric dryer will not heat


If you are testing the heating element your almost there.

There will be several thermostats/thermal cutoffs/etc. in the wiring leading to and from the heating element.

These will have wires plugged onto them.

Remove them and test for continuity between the contacts. They should all have continuity -- if not, that's your bad component.

You have to use a multimeter to test the heating element for continuity and if that is good, you have to test the other sensors. A wiring schematic is included with your unit, someplace on or in the unit.
