SOURCE: where is the thermal fuse located?

In the back of the dryer. Look for the coiled heaters and follow the lead wires back to the fuse.

SOURCE: Location of Thermal Fuse

The thermal fuse is located near the heating element. The part number for the replacement kit is LA-1053. You can view an illustrated parts break down of your dryer at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and locate item 5 under the "Heater" section. Pay close attention to the instructions in the thermal fuse replacment kit. One thermostat is for a GAS dryer, one is for an ELECTRIC dryer. Read the instructions and make sure you use the correct one. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Maytag dryer MDE9700 AYW We replaced the dryer heating element and the dryer still don't heat can anyone help me figure what parts I need


The heating element connects to a thermal fuse and then to a thermostat. The thermal fuse may be blown. There is no outward sign of failure http://www.appliancepartspros.com/01-blower-heater-parts-for-maytag-mde9700ayw.html

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.

I have a Kenmore Dryer, Model 96292110. It runs, but it does not heat the air. I have checked the circuit breakers. They are fine.


Hello,

If your Maytag dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers,thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F.

Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Maytag dryer is easier than it sounds.

Instructions And Things You'll Needed.
  • Screwdriver,Towel,Electrical tape,Replacement thermal fuse, if necessary.
1 Clean out thelint screen in your Maytag clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryerto overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer'sheating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and washit in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.

2 Look behindthe dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions.Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lintthat has built up.

3 Go outside andcheck your Maytag dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, birdnests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger yourdryer's thermal fuse.

4 Disconnectyour dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.

5 Access the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer byremoving the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in placeand it should easily come free.

6 Look betweenthe dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermalfuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wiresconnected to it.

7 Bypass the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer whileyou perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together thetwo wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it backin. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start."If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermalfuse needs to be replaced.

8 Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer.Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape thatyou used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from thethermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer anddiscard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing andtightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

Thanks for using fixya.

Maytag dryer is less than 3 years old. Blew thermal fuse. Cleaned all of the venting inside and out. dryer still overheating and blowing the thermal fuse. Replaced the thermal fuse and the high temp sensor...


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.

Disconnect power38732b7.jpg882727e.jpge4ad6bc.jpg58c0a23.jpgThat thermal will blow and kill power to the door switch circuit. The dryer will no longer function till you replace the thermal fuse. 0bdf7e1.jpgFailure to temove lint will cause continued thermal fuse replacement.

MAYTAG DRYER PYET444AYW HAS NO POWER...IS THERE AN INTERNAL FUSE?


There is an internal fuse. It is called a Thermal Fuse. It is not resetable it is only replaceable. It is located in the back of the dryer. Unplug the dryer and locate the thermal fuse and replace it. Two wires conect the to it. Also I would check the breaker to the dryer. Thanks and good luck. I you need futher assistance let me know and we will get through this together.
