Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

MDE5500AYW Maytag Neptune not heating. Heating Element, both high limit thermostats and thermal fuse have been replaced. What could be the problem?


Firstly, you have not mentioned that you have verified the presence of a power source of 240 volts, so make certain of that issue. If you have proper voltage, then the motor centrifugal switch could be at fault
Below is a link for trouble shooting your model.

My drier is a Maytag, it is not heating up the way it should be.


There is a chamber that the air blows down before hitting the vent pipe. It may need to be cleaned. But you want to make sure when you push your dryer back, that the vent doesn't kink. good luck. Overall you drier works, your just having a venting issue.
