Replace fuse dryer model GEQ8821LLO


Hello;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
You never explained what the problem was. Dryer not running? No heat? Dryer shutting down. It could be as simple as cleaning out your dryer hot air distribution manifold. A dryer will not run if you do not have good air flow due to lint blockage. A dryer will not run if you have a bad door switch. You can Ohm components out with a multi-meter, setting the meter to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol). You should get a reading of "0" if the component is good.


1.) Dryer Door Switch - This switch replaces your dryer door's switch.
  • You may need to remove your dryer's lint screen and lint screen housing before lifting its top panel to reach its existing switch.
  • Be sure your dryer is unplugged during installation.
This Dryer Door Switch part #3406107 Cost $20.00

Dryer Door Switch - Unplug the dryer before replacing the door switch.
This Dryer Door Switch part #279782 Cost: $22.00


Thermal Cut-Off- This component is located on your heating element housing,. you may be able to access it at your hot air distribution manifold in the back of your unit.
  • When replacing your dryer's fuse, replace its thermostat, too. The thermostat should have prevented the dryer's existing fuse from blowing. The high-limit thermostat is functional to 250 degrees (Fahrenheit) and the thermal cut-off fuse to 360 degrees (Fahrenheit).
  • Install the fuse in your dryer's heater element housing box. Be sure your dryer is unplugged during installation

  • Part #: 3977394 Cost: $33.00
    25432459-jpgjqed1aonpcy4b0i04xdgb-5-9.jpg Cost: $34.00
    The high-limit thermostat replaces your dryer's thermostat.
    • The thermostat is functional to 250 degrees (Fahrenheit).
    • Install the thermostat in your dryer's heater element housing box. Be sure your dryer is unplugged during installation.
    This High-Limit Thermostat part #3390291
    Hot Air Distribution Manifold:
    This is in the back of your dryer and easily unbolted. If you are plugged up with lint your unit will shut down. Remove this component and clean the lower discharge end.

    De 407 maytag dryer how do i find a wiring diagram


    the Maytag dryers would have the diagram either INSIDE the control panel, OR on the back of the control panel. Neither are color coded as there never was a color coded diagram ever printed. The diagrams do list the color of wires and show where they start and terminate. That is all a service tech would require to troubleshoot. If the diagram has been removed, you could try an online search.

    Heats up without being turned on


    Heater element shorted to frame. Remove wires to terminals on heater element. Check for continuity between each terminal and frame of dryer. If you get a reading you have a shorted element. I have manuals, videos, and much more Paw Paw's dryer service page

    How do i get dryer apart to get to heating element model mde308 dayw


    unplug dryer, move out from wall so you can get to the back. use a 1/4" nut driver and remove the rear panel. The heater element is on the bottom right. before replacing check for continuity. if the heater has continuity, check all of the other componets on the rear of the dryer. i would advise to check the small white thing with 2 wires connected.

    Maytag electric clothes dryer: If I first disconnect the wiring from the control switches, can I safely remove the entire outer casing from the dryer? That is, are the motor, drum, all working parts...


    Hello there. I kind of see what you're saying, however to access these things that would be a lot of work that you don't have to do. The motor is mounted to the lower frame. The heater element is usually mounted to the right side, on the bottom. Maytag dryers can be cumbersome to figure out, UNLESS you know how to do correctly disassemble them.
    http://www.do-it-yourself-washing-machine-and-dryer-repair-help.com/belt-Maytag-dryer.html
    This will help you out, even if it's an older model or a newer model design.
    It's not necessary to disconnect any wiring in the control panel unless you'll be testing the components within it, or replacing them. The control panel will usually just flip up and back out of the way with the proper items removed. I hope this helps. I would be glad to help you further if you need it, or have any questions.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Maytag dryer: pye2300ayw


    yes, it will. you should be able to take off the panel on the bottom of the front of the dryer. way in the back is the heating element. do not put your hands in there with the power on, but start the dryer and look in there and you will see if the heating element comes on. it will be like looking inside your toaster.

    Maytag Atlantis dryer no heat


    The heating element and thermostat are located behind the front panel of the dryer. you will need to remove the door, then the retaining screws. the heater / element is located on the left side as you are facing the front of the dryer and has to sheet meta screws (upper back top / and front bottom) which will need to be removed. the unit has several colored wires for the thermostat and switch. remove these (remember which goes where) and the enitre unit will come out easily.
