Disconnect power before working on this dryer.

Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.

Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior.

The heater is located behind the drum on the back wall. Disconnect the belt through the small opening at the rear of the dryer. Take careful note of belt configuration BEFORE removing it. Draw a diagram of its travel.

Lift drum about 1 inch straight up at rear...then pull whole drum forward while keeping lifted. This should expose the heater for checking.

Reverse process to re-assemble.

Hwant schematic for Maytag dryer model YMEDE301YGO


Go to Partselect.com. they will ask for model number and serial number of your dryer. They have every single little part for appliances but better yet they have video's on how to make the repairs. They also have schematics for every conceivable appliance made. the prices are very reasonable and the customer service is top notch!

I have an old Maytag dryer and its model # is LDE8800 and the serial # is 201878 DU and there is no heat in the dryer cycle anymore. It runs but doesn't dry anything--any help? thanks! Ali


Need a new heating element. had a look around cant find one for yours, maytag did recall a lot of heating elements due to severe problems. they are not a very good brand. i think the model is too old for a new element. Time for a new dryer i think. try Hotpoint or LG

Dryer runs but wont heat


There are 2 possibilities for this problem.
1. The limit switch is out. The limit switch is located on the heating element on the back of the dryer. This is a small button type part. it will have 2 prongs on it for 2 wires that slide on for power.
2. The heating element is out. This will be on the back of the dryer and depending the model it should be a long metal piece that has metal elements inside of it to heat the dryer. or it could be a large round unit. these can be tested with an om meter.

The limit switch will be the cheapest to start with on replacing.
If you need further assistance please do not hesitate to ask. I will need the make, model, and the serial number of the unit to help you further. the model and serial number can be found by opening the dryer door and looking by the hings. there should be a sticker with this information on it.

Model NVLR333EVOWW Not heating up


your element has burnt in half where the sparks are coming from is the end of the element touching the metal. You need the model and serial number go to the nearest appliance parts supplier and get a new element they aren't that hard to replace. Always make sure you disconnect the power source before doing any repairs to the dryer. Good Luck

Dryer runs but does not dry my cloths.


Hello, If the dryer appears to be running ok but will not heat you probably have a bad heating element or switch. Usually the heating element.
I hope this helps

Dryer tumbles won't heat


The problem could be related to one of the following; Not enough power from the house, a bad or broken heating element, a bad thermal fuse, or a brake in the wiring.

Solution
Check the house voltage for 220-240
Do a continuity test on the heating element.
Do OHM reading on thermal fuse.
Check wiring to heating element.

G E DRYER NOT HEATING


Use an Ohm meter to find the part in line with the heating element, that reads infinite ohms. On your machine, it's probably a thermostat mounted to the element shield, or the element itself.
