Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
I recently replaced thethermal fuse on my maytag neptune MDE5500AYW. Now, it dries very, very hot, on any of the settings, and when it reaches the cool down stage, it does not cool down. Could I havde done something wrong when I replaced the thermal fuse?
thanks so much
No the thermal fuse has nothing to do with that,although it will open again if too hot and that may be why it opened in the first place.most high heat ,long dry times are the house ducting.try this experiment.remove your dryer from the house ducting and dry a load[it wont hurt a thing]if not as hot,then get that ducting cleaned.if still hot then make sure the inner dryer air ways are clean.your blower is spinning fine[not broken on the shaft]and also check with ohm meter,or visually that your heating element is not shorted to ground[then it by passes the cycling thermostat.if all those things good and still getting high heat i may replace the cycling thermo.but as a repairman i did not have to do that very often.most of the time it was the other possibles. i hope this helps abit God bless ,tom
