Question about Maytag Dryers
I have a Maytag DE606. It was not heating. I replaced a bad heating element and it worked ONCE. Took apart and saw some of the porcelain insulators were broken, replaced them, still didnt heat. RE-tested the thermostats, the cool-down one had no continuity(part number 3-3037). I replaced this thermostat with a new one, it didn't heat up and now the thermostat has infinite resistance. Could my element be shorting out and frying this thermostat? The heating element and the other two thermostats have good continuity. Thanks in advance.

Remove 1 wire from the element . Your 220 V comes from ...110 motor , 110 control board . Check which wire is not getting 110 V , trace it and see which it comes from . That will tell you which one is defective .

Hello there :
what you are going to want to do is to troubleshoot the heating circuit
if you have a multimeter
there is a thermal Cut-Out switch that is connected to the heater box.) -simply unplug wires and take reading from the end connetors
your reading should be 0 ohms. and nothing else
a part called the Hi-Limit Thermostat that is connected to the heater box, it should be located closest to the heating element wire leads unplug the wires and take the reading across the 2 wire connections . this should give you a reading of 0 ohms and nothing else.
Now if any of these 2 parts are not in this range they need to be replaced and i would recommend that you replace them as a set cause if one usually goes out then the other one will soon follow ok
I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael
