Check the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical panel. Push off, then on. Try the dryer again. If works, ok. If not, recheck the breakers. If tripped again, the dryer has an internal short circuit--likely in the heating element(s). The drum must be removed to service the element(s).

Check the switch mounted on the motor. Two of the terminals are for the heater element operation. Other causes could be a faulty heat selector switch or timer. These components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. These are some items to consider. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Have you tried replacing the operating thermastat it's what shuts it off at the right temp and would cause the thermal fuse to go if it is not shuting.off at the right temp. It happens.
Hope this helps.

Why maytag bravos keeps blowing thermal-fuse


Lots of videos here about that problem.
maytag dryer thermal fuse replacement YouTube
Which thermal fuse. The one on the heater or the one on the lint filter housing? If it was the one on the heater did you replace the thermostat too.
Is the dryer vent blocked, has too many elbows, or too long or otherwise restricted, or is the dryer overloaded.

Matag dryer not heating


Here is a link to maytag dryer repairs http://apcoappliancerepair.wordpress.com/?s=maytag+dryer . The most common problem is the thermal fuse. My question is. Does the heating element start to light. If not...... and you have changed the ignitor and thermal fuse. Then check the flame sensor to see if there is continuity threw it. Power to the gas coils and ignitor runs threw the flame sensor. CLICK HERE to see a flame sensor on a GE dryer. They are the same on most units but Maytag will be on the opposite side of burner chamber.

Changed thermal fuse and cleaned out drier. it ran good for about 20 minutes and then shut down again. what could be the problem


changing the thermal fuse was a good idea but if the dryer runs for 20 min. then shuts off that is generally the motor going into thermal overload....thus meaning you would need a new motor.

Maytag electric dryer keeps shutting off.Dryer gets hot. Repairman replaced the motor but still having the same problem.Could it be a sensor?


Generally if the motor shuts off it is because of the overprotector on the motor opening up to save the motor.When the motor cools down the overload will close and the motor will work again.

If the unit is getting so warm the motor is shutting off check to make sure the rollers are working properly and moving freely.

How to replace heating element Maytag Performa gas dryer pyg2300aww?


Your model number indicates a gas dryer. It does not have a heating element. It has a glowbar igniter,a flame sensor and a gas valve. Either the glowbar igniter is bad or the flame sensor or the gas valve coils or the thermal fuse.

Maytag 5806 Gas Dryer starts and suddenly stops.


You may have a problem with a thermal overload sensor. Since it runs and then shuts off, this sounds like the problem.
