Let me guess why the dryer would fail. This one in particular has a blower wheel that has a high rate of failureMaytag performa dryer won't run - 09a6c5b.jpg

    Also in the lint filter housing in front of the blower a ball of lint will form. Both these failures will cause the dryer to take fifty forevers to dry clothes. But the real killer is the fuse. When it dies it kills the dryer. It is mounted on the side of the heater element. The same screw which retains the heater element holds the fuse all snug to the side of the heat chamber. Sweet. To properly repair this dryer make sure the blower wheel is tight and the lint ball is gone. Clean out the vent and replace the fuse.

Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Dryer pull knob not engaging dryer, changed it, still doesn't work. Please help! : )


If it won't run at all that probably is due so some sort of lint build up. To get into this dryer you remove the door first and since it is reversible you remove 2 screws on the opposite side as well and then the goalpost shaped front can pop off there. Then you remove the 2 things that hold down the top to the frame. Then you can remove the shrould. Then you can get the drum out. On the blower housing is a round fuse most likely it is blown. Their is another one just like it also near the blower. Check it as well. Clean her up and look for a loose blower wheel. That can cause the fuse to blow also. Now HERE IS YOUR SERVICE MANUAL. When did you say them cookies was gonna be ready? LOL

It runs but won't heat up.


There's no heat If your dryer doesn't heat, check these: Power from the house Heating element Thermal fuse Wiring Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected. Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Checked all power connections and fuse panel but seems to have no power even light will not turn on. it is a maytag performa. PYE4500atw


You will most likely have a bad thermal fuse. With your model, one leg of the power comes through it before it goes to anything else. These are easy to replace and are not expensive. They are also a common part to fail. You can go to www.partselect.com enter your model number. This will bring up diagrams of you unit plus a wiring diagram. You can alos order the part from this sight. Good luck.

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 maytag performa dryer stopped working. The


If a dryer is not working at all that's not good! But it doesn't mean you need to go appliance shopping just yet. It may be something very simple like a bad door switch or even a broken door switch actuator, in a kenmore dryer there is a tab thats sticks out of a hole in the wall that allows the dryer to run only if the door is shut, other models may have button that protrudes out of the dryer and when the door is shut, this allows the dryer to run. These switches go out from time to time, also if a dryer is full of lint build-up over time this will cause the dryer high limit or fuse to blow. The fuse is located near where the blower is in most cases. When the air in the dryer gets way too hot the fuse/hi-limit will blow and the house wont burn down.

Maytag performa dryer quit while drying lost all power light will not even come on?


Below is a checklist provided by; www.repairclinic.com. They also offer disassembly diagrams and repair parts.

If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:

Power from the house
Door switch
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Check for burnt or loose wires at the junction where the power cord attaches to the dryer. Also check the door switch. When you open or close the door you should hear a click, that usually means the switch is ok. Then open the cabinet top and check for broken wires.Check unit with power off / cord unplugged!!! Safety First. Good luck. BpB
