Question about Maytag Dryers
Maytag Electric Dryer model MDE7057AYW (5600 Watts).
Dryer runs ,but no heat . It states 120/240 volts I wired 120v.When hooked up it did appear to work , but not too good, now not at all. How do I remove panels to check inside? Then how do I trouble shoot? Thank you
Most electric dryers run on 110 volts, but heat on 220 volts. Unit needs to be wired to 208 to 240 volt, 30 amp circuit to Run and HEAT properly. Motor, interior light and controls run on 110 volts, neutral (white wire) and one hot wire, usually black. The heater works on both 110 volt hot wires, usually one red and one black wire. Unit can be hooked up to run and heat on 110 volts but will allways take two or three times as long as a 220 volt setup. It is producing half or a little less of its 5600 watt rating. It takes three things to efficiently dry clothes: heat, air flow and tumbling action. Remove any one and the unit runs much less efficiently. If you need a dryer to run on 120 volts, buy one that says 110 - 120 volt operation only, but it will still take up to two hours or so to dry a load. Brent

5600 watts will not operate off 120 volts.
This is a 220/240 volt hookup.
There are 2 legs of 120 volts each that operate the dryer.
The only part requiring 220v is the heater.
Otherwise 120v routes through the various controls and relays.

goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working
you dryer is gas check out this gas

have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to
