Question about Maytag MDE2400A Electric Dryer
I read the notes on trouble shooting...however when I reviewed the diaghrams for the unit I am unsure what part is the thermal cutout and high limit thermostat.
It is likely that they are simply going by a different name on the parts diaghram.
This is the link to the diaghram...
Could you take a quick review and confirm.
Under the "Cabinet" heading items number 24 and 25 are your thermostats. Unfortunately, Maytag does not offer much as far EXPLAINING which is which, other than they have different part numbers. One should be the internal bias (operating) thermostat, while the other is the hi-limit thermostat. The wiring diagram isn't much help either. There is also a thermister listed as item 4 under the "Blower" heading. Generally, a thermister acts as a fuse. I would start by measuring the resistance of the thermister to see if it may be blown before assuming you have a bad thermostat. If good, it should have a very low resistance or read a short. If bad it will read open. I hope this helps you.
PS Thanks for providing the drawings, it helps make my job much easier. Not many folks take the extra step to provide information as you did. Maybe others could learn a valuable tip from you on how to get the best results for their questions.
