Hi! I am wanting to know why my Maytag MDE308DAYW dryer is not heating up. I would like t fix the problem myself, and am wondering if there is a manual or pictures on how to do this. Thanks so very much.


Hi, Unplug the machine to do any work on it!! First thing to troubleshoot is to make all the wires are connected. If you know about electrical. There is a fused thermo protector. And also an overload protector on the motor(sometimen they reset themselves). If the timer is turning you may be able to eliminate that.This is the wiring diagram. There are many things that could keep your machine from heating. The push to start button is a very common problem.

How do you expose the heat element


Take of back of unit, unplug first. Heat element is near heat duct side with wires attached to it. Unscrew and slide it out. You could also put a tester to each wire to see if you have a complete connection. If ok check thermal switches, one could have gone bad.
