Question about Maytag MDE9316 Dryer
2 different repair people said not the dryer, had electricial wiring and breaker checked, that was ok can't locate problem
Check the receptacle, the plug and the cord itself and lastly the terminals where the cord goes into the back of the dryer. Maybe the breakers itself need to be replaced.

Tips for a great answer:
If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Hope this helps...

You will typically need a 40 amp 220V circuit for this ( check with local building inspectors). You will need to run some hefty wire probably #8 three wire (again check) and install the type of plug receptacle that is on the dryer cord.
Inside the breaker box you will need a dual breaker 220V breaker rated at 40 amps. The wire coming into the breaker box will need to be clamped in place with appropriately sized wire cable clamp where the enter the box through a knockout- available at any hardware store.
Now the big question- why are you switching to electrical? Gas is pretty much half as expensive as electricy and will dry the clothes faster (usually gas dryers generate more heat than electrical ones). Just wondering..
