Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
Ok, my dryer quit heating last week, read over other similar problems, figured 3 suspects to be thermostat, therma fuse or element. So I checked them with ohm meter, my element read 11 or 12. the therma fuse read 1(which everything I read said it should be continous only) and nothing on thermostat, current was not running though it at all. So I go get replacement kit: thermostat and therma fuse. doubled check to make sure correct part #'s and used the correct therma fuse for a electric dyer. Ok, hooked up and oh ya I have heat now, too much heat. I even turned down to low heat on cool down cycle and within 3 mins. the top cover of lid towards the back was sooo hot almost burned me. I opened the dryer door and could see the element glowing behind cover, so hot it was close to meltdown it seemed. Help, what now or suggestions on what do to do, or check.
Sound like the thermostat is not working bud first check and double check the thermostat is connected properly and the wires are on correctly (not mixed up)and check the stat probe or bulb is in the correct place to pick up heat(assumeing that the stat is not a energy switch wich has no bulb)If you are not sure where the wires go there should be a diagram on the inside of the back panel or go on line to the manufacturer site and get one from them,
Hope this is of some assistance
