    Dryer runs (PYE2300ayw) but no heat. A couple of years ago, the Best Buy repairman fixed it but did not re-install the lint screen right, and it is not flush, so lint gets into the exhaust and often gets clogged. I cant get it to seat flush, and now the dryer wont get hot at all.

Check the breaker first, then the connections, then last the element. It should be burned in two if it is not working. If all that is o.k. then the thermostat should be looked at. Have someone ohm it out and check it for voltage.

What can i check to see why my maytag bravos dryer isnt drying?


[Always disconnect the dryer from any power source before checking.] Dryer heating circuits have several parts in the series circuit that must all work (kind of like a string of Christmas tree lights) so you'll want to check each one in that series. These likely include the motor switch, timer switch, temperature selector switch, temperature controls/thermostats (usually three of these) and all connecting wiring plus the heating element. Of course, one should always make certain the dryer is receiving 220 volts power supply from the wall outlet before starting to troubleshoot the dryer. Most dryers operate with 110 volts, only using the 220 volts for the heater circuit. A dryer getting only 110 volts could run, but not heat. This doesn't happen often, but is always worth checking.

Dryer won't start


Either one or 2 things happened. The move cause the lint to shift around inside the dryer and it overheated blowing the fuse. OR the new apartment's vent is blocked and caused the dryer to overheat. All maytag dryers are not the same but they all have a non resetable fuse mounted on the blower housing. When the temp exceeds 350f it melts and kills power to the motor. If the motor is not running the heat does not get power. The motor must be turning to make the cent switch power up the heater. Dryer manuals

I have a MEDC400VWG drier.Woked fine yesterday. Put clothes in it today. Pushed start button. nothing happened. Smelled somthing getting hot. opened drier. Heating coils lit up. (with door open). Turned...


Sounds as if the motor centrifugal switch is stuck. Check to see if lint built up around switch or centrifugal mechanism on motor shaft. Rap switch with the handle of a screw driver hard but don't break it .

My maytag dryer heating element gets hot but motor will not run


Sounds like you have something shorted out.

The element issue could be a contact fused shut.
With both problems I would be looking for wires melted together, or a relay/sequencer welded shut melted etc.

You do have a potential fire hazzard here. If after removing the panel you cannot locate the problem, do not run the unit.

My dryer blows no hot air


HI

THE DRYER HEATER OPERATES ON 240VOLTS. CHECK TO BE SURE YOU HAVE 240 VOLTS AT THE OUTLET. WITH ONLY ONE SIDE OF THE CIRCUIT, THE MOTOR WILL RUN ON 120 VOLTS, BUT THE HEAT CIRCUIT WILL NOT.

MOST DRYERS HAVE A HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT NEAR THE HEATER ASSEMBLY. SOME HAVE A THERMAL FUSE AS WELL. THE HIGH LIMIT WILL CYCLE, BUT THE THERMAL FUSE WILL NOT RESET. CHECK FOR 240 VOLTS AT THE HEATER TERMINALS. IF YOU HAVE IT, THE HEATER IS BAD.
IF NOT, TRACE BACK THROUGH THE CIRCUIT UNTIL YOU FIND THE COMPONENT WITH THE 240 VOLTS ACROSS IT.
THAT WILL BE THE BAD COMPONENT.

MAKE SURE THE SELECTOR SWITCH IS SET FOR HEAT.
OITHER ITEM IN THE HEAT CIRCUIT:
CYCLING THERMOSTAT, TIMER, SELECTOR SWITCH, MOTOR CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH.

Maytag Dryer DE713 - Timer works, Tumbles all cycles but does not heat.


CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE OUTLET. A DRYER WILL RUN ON HALF THE 240 VOLT CIRCUIT BUT WON'T HEAT.
IF THE VOLTAGE IS THERE, CHECK FOR 240 VOLTS AT THE HEATER. IF IT IS THERE AT THE TERMINALS OF THE HEATER, AND THERE IS NO HEAT, THE HEATER IS BAD.
IF NO VOLTAGE IS PRESENT, TRACE BACKWARDS THROUGH THE HEAT CIRCUIT AND CHECK EACH COMPONENT IN THAT CIRCUIT. IF ONE OF THEM HAS 240 VOLTS PRESENT, THAT IS THE BAD COMPONENT.
POSSIBILITIES ARE, HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT, CYCLING THERMOSTAT, THERMAL FUSE, MOTOR CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH, HEAT SELECTOR SWITCH, TIMER. POWER CORD.
