Hello,

The part called the thermal fuse is very likely going to blown due to the lint build up around the blower. To check that thermal fuse remove the wires from it and use a meter and check for continuty with zero ohms resistiance. That thermal fuse is going to be in the housing where the blower is and i have included 2 pictures it is going to be either one of the 2 shown in the pictures depending when the dryer was built which one the manufacture used at that time.

I hope i have been able to help you fix your dryer,

Maytag Performa Electric Dryer Won't Start


check the blower wheel, sounds to me like it is loose on the blower motor, common on these dryers. One sure sign would be a warped filter and a rusted top. The blower aint putting out enough and the dryer is over heating .

Dryer does not start - Thermal Fuse is ok.


Good to know, when the appliance does not start at all is always thermal fuse, wiring, door lock switch, or rarely the control assembly.

Have a nice day.

It could very well be a thermostat problem, however, it could also be the drive motor itself starting to burn out. Some dryers are equipped with a "Thermal Limiter" that will cut the power to heat. It doesn't seem to be the case for you. I would defiantely look into another thermostat but if it comes down to the motor, depending on the price, You may want to buy a new dryer.
