Question about Maytag MDE9316 Dryer
Dryer and electricity has been checked by professionals - can't locate problem
If it takes 10 seconds to blow, then it is not a dead short. There is a lot of resistance building up somewhere that causes an eventual blown breaker. Check the receptacle, the plug for good wiring. The cord itself may be crimped or bent or twisted that could cause the strands to weaken. Have you checked the thermal overload switch. I assume these guys have checked the breakers to see if they are worn out.

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...
