Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
I'm not sure WHICH wire you're talking about, so its hard for me to assume in this situation. However, if your model number is correct, go to searspartsdirect.com. There are several wiring diagrams listed that you can use to assist you. If the wire is not melted too bad, note the color and/or any identifying marks on the insulation. Wires will melt if the current traveling through the wire exceeds the limit of the gage of wire used. This can be caused by a short circuit and/or a loose terminal where the wire is intermittently making contact (arcing). Definitely, not a normal situation. As a preliminary, if you replace the wire, make sure you use the proper gage. Also, double check all terminal leads in the circuit to ensure they are snug and making good contact. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to let me know.
