Question about Maytag HYE3658AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Hello all! My name is Sarah and I have a problem with getting my Maytag dryer back together (model number: MDE3500AYM). I had to replace 1 of the drum rollers in the very back of the machine. I have everything put back together UP TO the point where the dryer belt is in place and ready to go. Now I just have to replace (AKA: put back together) the frame cover that includes the cover for the tumbler. I have NO IDEA what screws go where, or how to put this piece back on! I have all of the pieces from when I took the dryer apart, but I have no idea where any of them go. My dryer manual does not include any diagrams of how to help me with this problem- it only seems to have wiring diagrams, etc. My main problem, when it comes to re-attaching this piece/frame is that there are multiple holes on the the dryer where the frame that I am trying to re-attach is going. I am unsure as to what holes to put what screws through. I also have two plastic triangle-like pieces (white in color) that appear to be hole-covers. I have no idea where these go either! Sorry that this message is so confusing! I have been trying to put this back together now for 3 weeks and I am still quite clueless about the whole thing! Thank you for anyone who can help! I appreciate your time and patience! ~Sarah

When you say frame In my mind I see three sides attached, The door and front open, top with controls attached Like this maybe?
Smaller screws are innerframe longer outer in. You can do this! Just some minor set got this far. Triangle Pieces I belive are corner protectors right and left lower, not positive tho. sorry. should be guide clips too, is the model bychance ending in W not M. Its hard to figure on what parts are left.... I will try to find you a diagram, other than the one attached

Maytag dryer stopped heating

Hello Daniel;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You have not provided a model number, so I do not know if you have an electric dryer or a gas dryer. Your model number should be on a label on the unit after you open the door.

In general:

1.) Bad Igniter (Gas Dryers) - You may have a bad igniter. Although it may glow red it may be too week to open your gas valve. This is about a $35.00 USD component.

2.) High Temperature Thermal Switch - This component could be bad. As soon as it senses any temperature it will shut you down.
Depending on your unit it is generally located on your hot air distribution manifold. This is about a $12.00 USD component

3.) Poor Air Flow - You may be just plugged up with lint in your hot air distribution manifold and duct work.

Sorry, I can not tell you where your problem area is, but I have no model number to go on.

I have a Kenmore Dryer, Model 96292110. It runs, but it does not heat the air. I have checked the circuit breakers. They are fine.


If your Maytag dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers,thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F.

Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Maytag dryer is easier than it sounds.

Instructions And Things You'll Needed.
  • Screwdriver,Towel,Electrical tape,Replacement thermal fuse, if necessary.
1 Clean out thelint screen in your Maytag clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryerto overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer'sheating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and washit in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.

2 Look behindthe dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions.Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lintthat has built up.

3 Go outside andcheck your Maytag dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, birdnests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger yourdryer's thermal fuse.

4 Disconnectyour dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.

5 Access the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer byremoving the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in placeand it should easily come free.

6 Look betweenthe dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermalfuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wiresconnected to it.

7 Bypass the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer whileyou perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together thetwo wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it backin. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start."If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermalfuse needs to be replaced.

8 Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer.Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape thatyou used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from thethermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer anddiscard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing andtightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

Thanks for using fixya.

Just had the idler pulley replaced on my Maytag dryer (loud banging noise)but it now has a very high pitched squeal sound (awful)! When I called the repair guy back he implied that the part might need to...

Most Maytag products have a 2 yr. parts warranty from the factory, so if you need a motor replaced, do it before your warranty expires. Check your warranty certificate for your particular units coverage.
I never heard of a self-lubricating idler pulley and this problem should not cause you to have to replace the dryer.
Note:Maytag produces several different designs and purchase prices of dryers with their name on it, so it would be beneficial to have a model number, so that we can provide more accurate information.

Let us know if we can be of any more assistance
