    Hi, It sounds like your thermal safty stat has went bad. If you could send me model #, I can look up your model and give you an answer to locate the safty so you can test it.

    Looks like you have plenty of help --- have a good evening.

  • Mark Nichols May 11, 2010

    Yes hook the two wires together on both things try one first if that works change it if not put it back on and then check the other

  • Mark Nichols May 11, 2010

    check the safety by the heating element, or i wonder if the door switch is broke

  • Samuel Charles Spriggs May 11, 2010

    Can you hear the motor turning -- it will be very faint.

Thanks or the #. Ok, The safty is located next to the heating element. To get to the safety, You need to pop the top of the dryer be inserting a flat blade screwdriver into the gap between the dryer front panel and the dryer top and push down on the screwdriver to seperate to two panels. Once you have done this, the element can be located at the rear top edge of the drum. A 1/4" screw will hold the safety stat and one holding the element. after you have removed the element from it's housing (Be carefully when lifting the element out so that you DO NOT break any of the ceramic holding the element. Now you will find the safety fuse on the right side of the element housing. Notice as you remove the safety how it mounts to the housing. Check continuity on the safety fuse. If you find the fuse is open, it will need to be replaced.

I can send you the proper kit if you would like.

Hope this helps.

    If you have no continuity in the safety, it is bad and needs replaced. Are you talking about the safety on the right side of the housing (Smallest of the two stats)?

Maytag Performa will not turn on. (4 Years old) There is power to it. You can hear a fainting clicking of the timer when you dial a setting


Have you tried moving the selection switch a hair at a time while in the ON position? The timer may be corroded -- if you can get to it it is easy to see the points and clean them with sandpaper or file. If so, the timer is moving but is not making a connection due to crud.

Maytag Performa Electric dryer timer is bad


Look up an appliance parts store in your area. If there is no appliance store, try www.searspartsdirect.com.

If it does not turn off during timed dry then it for sure has gone bad. If it takes a while on timed dry then it is most likely that your thermal fuse/ valve coils are going bad.

Maytag performa dryer quit working


Check your breaker first and then the wiring. Check power coming from the timer next. With a load and resistance that you had, you could have tripped one of the breakers.Since you have bypassed the thermal fuse, it probably is the timer switch.
