Ohm out the thermal fuse, if it is ok, then you can ohm out the heating element, be sure to visually check the element as well becqause it could just be shorted out internally giving you a reading, but first and foremost check your voltages be sure you are getting 240 across the outer plug spades and 120 volts from left to common and right to common, unplug this thing before you get into the element area or you could end up with a smokin fro !

SOURCE: water will not drain, will not do anything.

I would check the lid switch. That is most likely the problem.

Buy the right size fuse. Too big of a fuse can cause a fire.

Maytag LSE7804ACE dryer, has a terrible noise when you start it, and than shuts off

Depending on what kind of noise you are hear it could possible be the motor if you hear a low grumble sound. This could be from a bad start relay on the motor and wont allow the motor to run. the start relay is no longer available but the motor assembly can be purchased, part number 306055. However if the noise you are hearing is a banging noise this could indicate an entirely DIFFERENT problem such as your rear roller bearings that the drum rides on. part number for both is 303373.

hi there,

the humming is the motor trying to turn, which means it works. since you did not mention any error messages, it could just be a belt that slipped off the pulley. have you taken it apart yet?

it definitely worth fixing.

Quit working

This happened to me (as mentioned above) and I just need a new thermal switch. Easy to replace yourself.
