Question about Maytag MDE9700AYW Neptune 174 Electric Dryer
Unplug the unit.
Remove the top panel(two bolts in the rear metric 10 or Phillips will work) There are four screws across the top front of the control panel remove those and the panel will swing out and down,move it back and forth while pulling upward it has plastic clips on the bottom that keep it in place.follow the wires from the panel to the control board and unplug them or you can just lay the whole panel on top of the unit.
Open the dryer door and remove the two phillips screws on either side at the bottom of the door opening,then remove the four screws across the top of the panel it will lean out toward you,unplug the door/light switch and lift the front panel off the bottom clips.
You're probably looking for the thermal fuse located in the plastic elbow of the blower housing at the bottom of the unit it will be the round metal disc with a brown or black plastic backing.check your vent going outside and make sure it is completely clear/open doesn't have to be spotless clean but if it gets restricted in any manner it will blow this fuse.
