My maytag electric dryer is not getting hot.

My magtag electric dryer: Model LDE9304ACE is not getting hot. The plug in cord burned from the base of the plug where the metal prongs meet the base of the plug. I replaced the plug in cord and now m dryer works, but it is not getting hot. It is also no moving through thr cycle whe the knob is turned. The knob doesnt move through any cycle, even if i change which cycle it is on.

It sounds like the element shorted out and caused more damage to the unit. Remove and check the heating elment, thermal fuse (located near element), and timer. The timer will be hard to test if you don't have a meter. I would suggest that you check the element first. This is probably your main problem.

The dryer has a four prong male plug and the outlet is a three prong female - which do I change? the dryer cord is the easiest, but how do I connect the leads?


4 PRONG PLUG WIRING: 2 HOTS(RED&BLACK) 1 NEUTRAL(WHITE) 1 GROUND(GREEN). 3 PRONG PLUG WIRING: 2 HOTS&1 NEUTRAL. YOU MUST USE 2 HOTS & 1 NEUTRAL ON A 3 WIRE PLUG. THE GROUND WIRE(GREEN) WHICH IS HOOKED TO FRAME OF THE DRYER IS NOT USED ON OLDER 3 WIRE PLUGS. IT IS AN ADDITIONAL SAFTEY GROUND ON NEWER MODEL 4 WIRE PLUGS.

Replaced the electrical cord on maytag atlantis dryer < a year ago, but now it seems the hot connection is burning up.


BOTH HOT "L1" and "L2" connections or just one of them is burning up? if just one you could have a partially shorted heating element drawing excessive current

Changing power cord from 4 to 3 prong


Hi,

See this link and read the article carefully - if your dryer already has a 4 wire cord, it should be replaced with same type.

Replace the cord first. You won't be able to tell for sure unless it's replaced. Dryers pull so many amps and the dryer cord becomes hot while running it. The heat causes them to break down over time.

Usually you will encounter a situation where a wire will burn off and in so doing, it may trip a breaker,(turn it off then back on to be certain), or if fused, it may blow a 30 amp glass fuse or 30 amp cartridge fuse. Replace both tho eliminate any doubt. If all checks ok, disconnect the dryer from the power source and go internal to find the problem. Below is a popular link to provide you with more assistance, should you need it.
