Is it the large heating element wire or the thermostat wire? If it is sthe thermostat wire just go to hardware store and get repalcement spade for end., if its the larger element wire whole element should be replaced I have seen some people correct it by just rebending wire around the connector for a temp fix but not recommend should be replaced

There's a slight burning smell coming from the dryer drum.


Some item may have gotten between the drum that rotates and the housing and during the rolling of the drum this item may be heating up from the friction. Check closely to see if you can find anything rubbing on the drum.

I have a Maytag Electric Dryer model #MDE5500AYW that will not heat up. When I opened the front and looked at the heating element, I noticed that the wire attached to the heating element (a black wire)...


Okay have you replaced the wire with with the correct one? If the wire gauge is wrong it will do every time next you need a volt meter with a buzzer sound maker on it test your thermostat and hi limit thermostat if it makes a noise when testing its working. Only thing that would cause that wire to keep burning are those options and if all checks out okay then its faulty wiring which is grounding out somewhere which is a pain to trace and if you might not find the bad wire had a few of these with these problems and I ended up junking them big fire hazard sorry for the problem.

this could be the stats or the drum is not turning Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.

Dryer will turn on and spin but is not heating up


This usually means the heating element (wire inside behind the turning drum) is broken. Unplug the dryer. Open up the back and front of the dryer, remove the drum's belt, then the drum. You should see the heating wire at the back. Check for the break. Then using pliers, join the two broken ends together by twisting the wires together. Put the parts back together, plug the dryer back in and away you go.

Dryer no heating how do I get to the fuses and the heating elemet


using a wide flat screw driver pry the top up at the edges betwenn the main top and the front panel. Lay it down on it's back for this. Now look for your door switch wires and undo them. Now look inside the front panel toward the top and remove 2 attaching screws or hex screws. Lift panel at top and remove. Now undo 3 screws in middle of inside drum and pull drum out after un-doing belt. There you should find your heat element and all the thermostats and the thermal fuse should be labeled. If heat element is not broken then chances are your thermal fuse is bad replace it

Drum Turns, but dryer won't heat up.


If the dryer does not heat at all then is either a problem with the heating elemet , or with the thermal fuse.

See the following suggestions from Repairclinic:


There's no heat If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house
Heating element
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
