Question about Maytag SDE4606A Electric Dryer
Maytag dryer is not heat up. I think the heating element is done. Where is the element on model sde4606ayw
Hello, There are a couple of variations of the heating element, depending on the series number of your dryer.
Here's a link to the parts list and line drawing so you can verify the proper element you need.
If you have a Series 14 dryer, the element part number is #37001134, otherwise, there are a couple of other elements that your particular dryer might use, so check the model number and product tag so you can get the right parts.
You might want to check the element first, to make sure it is defective, before you order replacement parts, as it might be a faulty thermal fuse, which is much less expensive to replace than the heating element.
If you have a multimeter, you can check the fuse to see if it's failed. Be sure to turn the power off and unplug the dryer before removing the back access panel and checking the thermal fuse (see drawing in link above)
With the meter set to measure resisitance (Ohms) you can put a test lead on each side of the thermal fuse and if you get a reading showing no continuitity, then the thermal fuse is blown and needs to be replaced.
You can also check the heating element using the same method, again, make sure the dryer is unplugged before testing the continuity of the heating element, if you don't get a continuity reading, then the heating element is bad too.
I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
