Thanks. I'm sending an image, I'm assuming the panel and top are as labeled in my image? Is the sections with the red circle where I'm supposed to put the knife to pop it out?

yes these units are fragile your going to need to gain access to the heating section... removal of the bottom panel and you may be able to get the top off and get most of them the screws are in the rear for the top and then the top slides backwards to remove try that first and vac out if not then remove the bottom section and go in from there....

Here is the link to the wiring diagram for your dryer, I'm assuming you are looking for the wires as they connect to the incoming power cord? They appear to be the only ones with that specific wire color code.
Hope this helps!

Which wires are hot and which is the ground wire on Maytag DE7600 drier (back panel top to bottom 3 connections)


If you have the newer style, you should have 4 wires on the CORD <--- not the terminal block itself. They'll be; Black, White, Red and Green. The green goes to the frame/cabinet and the white ALWAYS (ALWAYS) connects to the center terminal. The Black and the Red attach to either of the 2 remaining terminals... doesn't matter which one.

If you have a 3 wire cord, don't worry about a green wire. Just wire it "black, white, red" or "red, white, black"... just make sure you put the white in the middle. Think Oreo cookie.

And to be specific about your question... The Black and the Red are the "hot" wires... each one carries 120VAC.

Clothes getting stuck in door seal when drying.


the plastic that you see overlapping the metal on the sides of the opening is in two parts, top and bottom, you can see the seem. the top is the smaller part, this plastic is also the drum support on the front. There are some glides on the top section that wear with time, after a few years they may need replacement. Perhaps these are worn out dropping the drum creating an uneven gap and catching. there is also a felt strip in there between the front of the dryer and the drum, keeping it back.
To view this remove the top by removing the 2 screws inside upper door opening holding top down. then lift top and if plastic console slide to left then pull away, metal -just pull straight. remove 2 screws holding front to cabinet sides. pull front forward. glides are visible on top. if not there or worn thru plastic replace upper plastic support

Dryer won't start


It sounds like you have a blown thermal fuse. Searspartsdirect.com has a replacement kit available. Just type in your model number and the kit can be located under the "Heater" heading as item number 5 (part #LA-1053). The kit contains the hi-limit thermostat and thermal fuse. Replace both components at the same time. NOTE: Only one of the thermal fuses will be used, however. One is for a GAS dryer, while the other is for an ELECTRIC dryer. They are marked accordingly.

To access, you will need to remove the dryer front panel. This is accomplished by inserting a putty knife into the seam where the dryer top and front meet (about 2 inches in from each end) and pushing in to depress the release tabs. Disconnect the door switch wires and the front panel comes off and can be set aside (make sure you label the wires). With the front panel removed, the dryer top panel lifts up. The heating element will be located in the center-rear of the dryer behind the dryer drum.

If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

NOTE: The website also includes helpful illustrations for component location and wiring diagrams. The correct wiring diagram depends on your dryer serial number. If you have questions about this let me know (send me the serial number).

Pilot Light


Usually behind a removable panel on the bottom front of the dryer, the panel may have a few screws but most just "snap" on and off. You should see a gas valve with a red knob that has the "off", "pilot" and "on positions.

Re: Top center Shaft Seal


possibly, each manufacturer labels it something different, you want the last seal out of the transmission on the top. good luck.
