Need ohm readings for Maytag Performa Model PYE 3200AYW

Hello,
My dryer does not heat. I have read other questions/answers, it's not blocked, it tumbles, blower works, just no heat. I have id the 3 different possible problems: heating element, hi limit thermostat or thermal fuse. I think there could be any other possible reasons? But I don't know what the reading should be on the ohm meter for each. Please help.
Maytag Performa Model PYE3200AYW. All I could find was model 2300 info.
thanks
Janna S.

make this tests and fix it. God bless you

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. The proper ohm reading can be found in the service manual or sometimes on the tech sheet located somewhere on your dryer (9- 13 ohms is a common reading). Electric heating elements aren't repairable. The heating element replace it.

Thermal fuse / Thermal Cut Out / Thermistor

On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel or behind the front cover . The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing They are also round and made of metal and plastic. The thermistor is located on the blower housing usually. If any of the fuses do not have continuity replace it. Check for continuity if none replace, But before replacing check for obstructions. The fuses are very inexpensive and replace 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. Check all connections, make sure they are tight. Loose connections can lead to a fire. You may need to replace power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Maytag performa dryer model pye2300ayw, what should the ohms reading be on the thermal fuse?


doesn't matter,it's either good or bad,when you touch the meter to it if it reads 1 and doen't move it's bad if you get any reading it's good,if the dryer is loaded with lint in the duct that the lint filter slides into and the vent line is blocked it will keep popping on you, clean out the dryer,number one cause for popping the thermal fuse

Maytag dryer model sde4606ayw ser 12775126ev will not heat heating element checks ok and vent is not pluged.


First,with a volt meter,verify 220 volts at the terminal block where the cord attaches to the dryer. Look for a burned or broken wire here also.
On the face of the heater canister are 2 relays. Part #3700135 is a thermal fuse. part #37001133 is a thermostat limit switch. With a volt meter set for ohms or continuity read these 2 relays. If you get no reading replace them. It may be just the thermal fuse that reads bad. Replace both if either one reads bad.
If these relays are bad,you also want to check and clear the exhaust vent of lint or blockage.

My maytag performa pye2300ayw dryer will start but will not heat up. No matter how long I leave it on, it just won't heat up. what could be the source of the problem? the model number - pye2300ayw rev - 10...


You have a thermal overload switch that may be bad. It is located under the top of the dryer. Check first the breakers. Turn them off and then back on, then check the wiring in the back of the dryer and then the element itself. It may take 30 minutes to do all of this, but it will save you a lot in the long run.

Dryer not drying


Locate the heater element ,disconnect one or both ends. ohm it out with an ohm meter. Zero reading means tha it is open and needs to be replaced. Maxium or full; scale reading on the right side means that it is shorted and needs to be replaced. Middle reading on the meter and I would look elsewhere,such as;  Voltage coming to the element if you are used to dealing with 220 volts, live.
