Question about Dryers
All seems to work fine except the air flow is not warm. I opened the dryer from top and back and found the fan and the eating element. The fan seems OK, all filters are clean, and the heating element looks completely new (The dryer itself is 7 year old), so now I'm looking for a thermal switch or the thermostat or anything of that sort, but they must be burried deeper inside because I can't seem them. If anybody can tip about how to do that, be blessed
Test the heating element with a meter for continuity with a meter.
After that follow the wires, one thermal fuse should be neer the heater element the other near the exhuast.

I am not 100% sure, but I think that the model that maytag had with that dryer. When I was working for my local dealer I had to change several of those, and it about 2 weeks time they blew.

A good thermostat reads zero ohms when cool and infinity when hot enough to cycle off. A bad thermostat reads infinity when cool, infinity when not hot enough to cycle off, or zero when hot enough or even hotter than is cycling temperature. The temperature marking on the thermostat is its temperature rating on which it cycles off and should read infinity.
The sensor works only when an auto-dry cycle is selected. The bars or wires are shorted if the dryer doesn't shut off after the clothes are dry and open or the connection is cut open or loose if the dryer shuts off before the clothes are dry.
