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.

The timer doesn't work and the dryer does not heat up.

I would look for reasons why the dryer has this condition. Remove the vent pipe and see if their is lint buildup. If you see air restrictions that means your safety has tripped or melted.
That model number is incomplete. Gotta shoot from the hip on this one:

Get the back off there. You made no mention if the dryer was not working nly said it was not heating sooo.....
I think if you found this:

9_29_2011_4_29_16_am.jpgand the dryer does turn and it is electric heat then this is the probo:

It is mounted on the heating element housing:

OK if all of the safety are good when being checked with a meter with their wires removed yall could have a bad timer:

OR a bad circuit breaker

If your unit shuts down in less than 10 minutes then I would guess yall have electronic sensors but since you made no mention of that being the case then I feel like your model must be one which features autodry. Autodry uses the limits on the heater housing to determine movement of the timer motor. When the heat is on the timer won't advance and when no heat is applied it moves a little bit. Eventually them clothes will get so dry the heater will be needed less and less by the control thermostat. At which point the timer motor will advance steadily towards cool down mode.So what goes wrong? The vent being blocked causes excessive heat. If the filter housing was blocked like this:

The fuse would melt and kill the motor through the door switch circuit. It would be as if you opened the door. The dryer won't go no mo. But if the vent was clogged the fuse would not melt because it is rated for 350f. That leads me to believe your small limit on the heater housing has failed. That being the case it will run all day and never dry them clothes. NOW if yours is a gas model then that is an animal of a different nature. A gas dryer that is also an autodry model would never give power to the gas assembly if this duct fuse was blown:

It is wired into the gas valve assembly circuit And if that is the case then yall have a clogged filter housing like this one:

I recently did a tune up on one of these dryers and took some photos

Our dryer was running fine and now it wont turn on.

It could be the timer or a safety switch that keeps it from over heating.Sears used to sell a home owner repair manual.You can call Sears Parts Central or go to the web site and give them the model number and see if they have the manual. It is a pretty good easy to follow manual with a good trouble shooting section.

Dryer ran for hours and did not stop automatically, now runs but wont heat?

Good day,
If set to automatic and there is no heat it will run continually run without shutting off. You'll need to trouble shoot the heating problem.

A lot of the problems are due to limit fuses and limit thermostats located in the back. Beyond that you'll need to supply the model and whether its gas or electric.

Dryer wont start

Okay...your dryer is one of the more easier dryers to access the heating circuits. All you have to do is unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. The heating circuits will be on the right hand side (as viewed from the rear). The heating element is inserted inside the heater box with the thermal cut-out (TCO) mounted on the top portion of the heat box. The hi-limit thermostat will be located adjacent to the heating element ceramic terminals. You mentioned a thermal fuse also. It is a small white plastic (sometimes gray) looking component mounted on the blower fan housing on the lower left hand side of the dryer (as viewed from the rear).

If the dryer does not run at all, the THERMAL FUSE is a good diagnosis on your part.

If the dryer runs, but does not heat, the THERMAL CUT-OUT, heating element or hi-limit thermostat are your likely problems.

The following link provides you with some necessary guidelines on how to troubleshoot if needed:

Most dryer problems are related to overheating caused by poor ventilation, or overloading. If you need a drawing of your dryer heat components you can reference Just type in the model number you provided (include the prefix "110", this identifies the manufacturer as Whirlpool). The number should be written as follows: 110.66801691. Look under the "Bulkhead" heading for an exploded view diagram of your dryer. The Thermal Fuse is listed as item 59 (part #3392519). I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.

House fuse

If you have a two pole circuit breaker
there will be no fuses
the breaker replaces the fuses mentioned in the manual

Most common cause of dryer running but no heat is a blown thermal fuse. a protective device that fails if airflow is restriced and temperature rises.
the thermal fuse is mounted on the fan body or exhaust duct and looks like one of these
ac65851.jpg ce345c9.jpg wired in the heater circuit
explicit instructions to open the case/body of the dryer depend on make and model which are not stated.
If the thermal fuse has blown the dryer needs to be cleaned of the lint that got past the screen, into the fan and exhaust duct all the way to the vent on the exterior wall 2092f63.jpg thermal fuses are ~$14

Frigidare Dryer Model Number leq1442es0

they are refering to the fuses in the breaker box of the house not the dryer, verify that you have 240 volts at the terninal block on the back of the dryer, you must have it there it is ac voltage.

if you do then you may have a heater, a thermastat, a safety limit a motor a timer a heating selector issue too many coulds to tell you right now need to be more specific if you have the proper voltage
