You have to use a multimeter to test the heating element for continuity and if that is good, you have to test the other sensors. A wiring schematic is included with your unit, someplace on or in the unit.

Maytag mod. #med5700tq0 elec. dryer runs, inconsistent heat, high heat two days ago, little heat a few hours ago, some heat an hour ago, no heat now. Where is the best place to start?


It sounds clogged up to me. Take the exhaust hose off the wall and try it first. Another thing that happens with Maytags is that the motor shaft will **** out the center of the plastic blower and even though the motor is turning, little or no air is moving through the machine, so the high limit thermo turns the heat off

Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

No heat in gas dryer, gas good, elec good??


if the heat is on when the dryer is cold then shuts down after 15 to 30 minutes and doesn't lite for a long while you have bad gas coils,the gas should come on until it hits temp. then it shuts down,when the dryer calls for heat it will turn back on,if it stays on for short periods of time you might need to clean out the dryer,this will shut the gas down to soon,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,blow out the vent line,make sure the air is blowing outside with nothing blocking it and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is

Dryer won't heat up! It tumbles fine, but no heat! My Maytag dryer is only two or three years old!


This problem is normally caused by a faulty thermostat and or heating element. Test and replace if needed

Maytag dryer does not heat.


If the dryer comes on but doesn't heat, it is probably the heating element. If the dryer doesn't come on at all, it most likely is the dryer's motor.

Maytag PYE3300AYW Elec Dryer Runs, But No Heat


hello kellygubser,
If you are sure the thermal switch is ok.. have you checked the high temp ( bi metal snap switch) too? Here is a link to the wiring diagram of your dryer. You can see that there are a few other temp switches in circuit of the heating element that would disble it.. Hope this helps

Kenmore Elec Dryer Won't Heat up


Sounds like either a faulty thermostat or heating element. Both are accessed from the lower right backside of the dryer behind a metal door. Be CAUTIOUS, the edges can be sharp and cut you very easily. Good luck.
