No fuse on that old of a model . Probably element bad or thermostat . You can get a restring kit a lot less expensive , but you would have to restring it yourself (not that hard though) or , you can buy the element already strung and all you have to do is transfer the thermostat and install . complete pt # Y303404 ...Restring element pt # Y313538

How the thermal fuse work de 303 dryer

If the air going past the fan is too hot, and the cycling or oven thermostat does not turn off the heat, the thermal fuse activates. Repair is to replace it. I have only come across this where wrong parts are fitted or bypassed. - DON'T ever bypass the Thermal fuse as it is a last resort safety feature!!

Maytag gas dryer model D6606 won't heat

Most likely it's either a bad fuse, thermal cut-off or heating element.

Check your heating element. If it's not broken (the coils), then you have either a bad thermal cut-off, fuse or thermostat.

Top works fine, bottom no heat, does this unit have seperate heating elements or could it just be the internal fuse

Are you talking about the element you where looking into the element shroud and that is what you saw? If so your element is gone you can buy a complete element at your local parts depot.The element is fused on to the shroud makeing a dead short. Hope i fixya :)

DE 412 Overheats

In most cases, the heating element is provided power via a relay and that relay is controlled by the electronics. On older dryers, you probably have a small motor driven dial that rotates and is basically a timer. If that motor fails to rotate or is slower than it should be ( due to age or worn gears) you may experience over-temp conditions. You should still have over-temp 'snap switches' that sense the over-temp condition and 'should' de-energize the relay that provides power to your heater element. If that relay is sticking in the "ON: postion, then regardless of what the controller says, the heater will remain powered up.. So in essence you have a few components that are suspect.. IT may or may not be worthwhile removing and replacing them in a 'shotgun' manner to determine the the root cause but if you do... be sure to disable power from the system BEFORE any service takes place.
Also: the temp control may bve dictated by power resistors that are switched in series with the heating element itself to limit current through that element ( and reduce the overall drying temp). If any of those power resistors have changed value over time or are not switched into the circuit via the controlsm the symptoms will be similar. AS painful as this may sound, 20 - 25 years of service from any appliance is considered above and beyond the normal life span so consider yourselves lucky that you got that kind of mileage out of them. The cost to diagnose and repair may make it impractical at this point and you may be better off just replacing with newer more energy efficient models. Your call.. Hope this helps..

Maytag DE 412 Door switch

Attach the white to the common and the yellow to the NC, which means "normally closed". Normally, the circuit is closed which allows the dryer to run.

Maytag DE 412

Does sound like the timer, although the clock is moving, the contact for the heater element is burned out inside the timer, you probably have used this timed dry for your normal day to day use and worn out the contact, new timer required.

Maytag Performa PYE2200AYW - not working

Yes there is a fuse in the dryer. The black circular thing is a high limit thermostat. Beneath it is the thermal fuse. It is smaller (dime size) and is mounted to the right side of the heating element housing. It is alittle tough to see and get at. You must use the original Maytag part kit.It comes with a new high limit therm. and fuse.
