Question about Dryers
Maytag Performa dryer
Just a few things before the for sure thing. Make sure the dryer door is closed very good, and its plugged in (I hate doing that, but have a lot of calls with just that same thing). More than likely, it is the thermal fuse that has went bad. This fuse causes us more problems than any other item on the Performa. Unplug the unit, and take a putty knife and shove it into the top removing clips between the top and cabinet, around 1-2 inches in from the sides. Lift up and prop the lid against the wall, being sure it wont clunk you in the head (happens to me about once a week). In the left rear of the unit, you will see the element box. On (your facing side) the right hand side down about halfway, you will see two wires going to a small button shaped fuse. Remove the screw at the top of the element box (1/4") slide the fuse holder up and out (with wires still connected in case you drop it), and remove the fuse. The parts (LA-1053) will contain two fuses and a thermostat. Be sure to remove and replace the old thermostat when replacing the fuse. Follow instructions for which fuse to use, one is for gas, one is for electric. Reassemble is opposite disassembly. Let me know if you need further help. Jim

I have a Performa dryer (electric) that would not start. It was a heat sencer located on the exhaust duct that failed.
