Question about Magic Chef CYE4000AWW Electric Dryer
The dryer was working fine then in the middle of a load it stopped working. I pressed the start button and it worked for about 10 seconds. Now when you push the start button there is nothing. Power is fine. I replaced the start button but still the same. Timer is counting down fine. The drum moves fine. The starter must trip a relay. Where is the relay? The orange wires run down the back and the schematic diagram doesn't have colors on the wires.
My Kenmore 400 series dryer did this recently. Stopped running in the middle of a timed dry. Would not re start. I looked at this web site and got the idea it might be the thermal fuse. Had my husband take the thermal fuse out (VERY EASY) and had it tested. IT WAS BAD. Replaced the thermal fuse for $20.00 and ta da it is working again.
