Question about Dryers
I have a maytag performa (electric) dryer that doesn't produce heat. I replaced the heating element and another small part electrically connected part (may be some kind of relay.?) and it still produces no heat. The drum turns, its 220a with its own circuit breaker. Any ideas?
It sounds like you replaced the heating element and the small thing you refer to was most likely the thermal fuse. If these are the components that you replaced, and if they are indeed good, the next thing to look at if the dryer is not heating up is the high limit thermostat. It is most likely faulty if the element and thermal fuse are good. Hope this helped and best wishes. Here is a picture of a thermal fuse and high limit thermostat to help you figure out what is what.
