Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE6400AY Electric Dryer
I am not certain which switch you replaced, but most switches will not correct overheating.
In short - You have exhaust blockage or a sensor that is not sensing correctly.
Have you checked the exhaust? the entire hose. That is pretty easy to check.
The more difficult part is to check and then you need to open the case up and look in the area past the screen in all the chambers that lead to the output of the dryer.
Next if that does not fix it, to save a service call replace the one or two temp sensors that are in the exhaust chamber channel after the lint screen. You will have to disassemble the front and maybe the back of the dryer. The front will probably have access to the sensors.
The sensors look like black oval shaped plastic with a little small bullet-type item on the end of the black piece facing in the channel chamber. They are around $15-25 each.
Get back to me if any one of those do not work.
