Question about Dryers

Open Question

Maytag Performa model med5740tq0

No heat. Tested element, and all safety devices. Only reading 125v anywhere. Motor turns light in drum lights. Disconnecting element reads 125 on each leg separately. Guessing timer, heat selector or control board. Suggestion on how to check before throwing parts at it.

SOURCE: dryer spins but no heat

Did you check the power coard where it connects to the dryer? Start at the source. Make sure that you have at least 110v on each line. The dryer will tumble on 110v but requires 220v to heat. If you have 220v then check the t-stat and thermal cut-out on the blower. Check all wires for loose or burnt terminals. If all that is good it may be a bad motor or timer/control. I'm happy that you have a meter.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Dryer not heating

The motor has to be running for voltage to exit the motor going to the heater. With the back off the dryer and the motor running you should read 220 volts at the heater if all safetys and thermostats are good.
There is a thermal cut out relay on the heat canister. It must read continuity also.
Remember you must remove at least one wire from each component being tested to get a true open or closed reading. If a wire is left connected you get a false reading.
The heating element could be broken and part of the heater wire touching the canister. This would cause a continuity reading and still no heat.
Finally, yes,the centrifugal switch in the motor could be bad and not sending power to the heater on the red wire.

My Maytag Performa Dryer model PDET920AYW will heat but drum will not turn. Belt is not broken. Can you help?


It is possible that the motor start/run capacitor has failed, rendering the motor unable to get going. The capacitor will look something like this

Maytag Epic dryer model MED9800TQ0. Dryer was running fine, changed loads, held the start button down, it beeped and attempted to turn the drum, clicked and nothing. All the controls light up, timer...


does the element come on at this point ?
I'm not sure if you tried this already or not, but i would unplug the unit and wait a min and plug it back in and see if it resets and then works again . you could have had a power surge .

My maytag dryer heating element gets hot but motor will not run


Sounds like you have something shorted out.

The element issue could be a contact fused shut.
With both problems I would be looking for wires melted together, or a relay/sequencer welded shut melted etc.

You do have a potential fire hazzard here. If after removing the panel you cannot locate the problem, do not run the unit.

Dryer turns on doesnt dry


Suspect heating element or thermal fuse. The heating element and fuse can be checked with an ohm meter. The reading should be 0-2 ohms on both devices. If heating element reads infinity (nothing) replace heating element and fuse. If the fuse reads infinity then replace the fuse.
