If you're trying to plug a 3 prong connector into a 2 prong outlet you'd be safer to convert the outlet to a 3 prong (grounded) outlet. Otherwise, if you're feeling ornery, you can just break the 3rd prong off of the plug and plug it right in. They also make a 3 prong to 2 prong adapter that you can get at any hardware store.

How to rewire my admiral dryer from 3 wires to 2 wires 240v

Your 3 wire cable should have 1 live, 1 neutral and 1 earth or ground. I don't see why the dryer has 2 wire setup. Unless you are seeing where the ground goes? Get an appliance engineer to check it or get an owners handbook. Don't take chances with electricity.

I have a maytag admiral dryer (ade7000ayw) stopped working over tonight? It's plugged in and the outlet has power.

The thermal fuse is what the problem very likely is. It is located on the side of the heater housing on the upper part of the back wall of rear drum support. To check it UNPLUG DRYER,remove the 2 white wires on the right side of where the heat element goes and check the thermal fuse for continuty (zero ohms resistiance) using a meter set to measure ohms of resistiance

How to clean the front lint duct on Maytag Admiral ADE7000AYW

I'm not sure if the front lint duct is like a frigidaire. But there should be a couple of screws that can be removed. Then you should be able to remove the cover. This should give you access to the inside duct and you will be able to clean it out.

Dryer heats but takes a long time to dry

Hello Jeff,
You may have a bad overtemp switch that is disabling the dryer heating element ( normally as a safety mechanism to keep it from over-heating and/or causing a fire) from staying on. Many ( but not all) are of the auto reset type and open the circuit if they are sensing high temperatures. When they sense this over temp condition , they open and disable the heater element from being energized. Once the temp drops to less than their limit, they reset and allow the heater to switch on. That would be one consideration to investigate. If you can gain acess to te back of the dryer, you can bypass these switches by shortng the wire leads together.. Do this as a diagnostic only.. and DO NOT leave them that way.. you risk having a fire if you do.. also.. make sure you remove or disable power to your dryer when you are checking this out. If the dryer heater remains on after you short the temp switch leads together, then you wil have proven that the temp switch is the problem and it shoul dbe replaced..Hope this helps you...

Dryer not starting

Dryer needs a new motor. I changed the thermal fuse and the dryer worked for a minute then stopped without the ability to restart.
