Maytag dryers have an electronic circuit at the base that controls the heaters. There is a fuse in that circuit that is very sensitive to power fluctuations or component failures. I have tried to replace the fuse (as an electrical engineer I think I'm qualified) only to have it blow out again. This is usually an indicator that there is something else wrong with the board. After looking at the schematic (wiring diagram) and the board. Figuring out what it does and what was said by others at other sites, I decided that the best solution was to have Maytag replace the board....

After taking out a second mortgage on the home to pay for it the machine worked fine. My advice...replace the board or buy another brand. We were able to buy another dryer and had money left over based on the cost of this board.

Sometimes it is just better to take your losses and replace the whole machine rather than go to the expense and time of a costly repair. This was one of those times for us.

Dryer won't heat maytag neptune mde 5500 ayw


Hi


If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-

Electric Dryer---

1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.

2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.

3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.

4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.



Hope this helps...

My dryer won't heat. Maytag DE410


Hi,

Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check that the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.
Good Luck and have a nice day. Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

My Maytag Bravo Steam Dryer runs for about 5 minutes and gets hot and then kicks the breaker in the breaker box. HELP!!


Hello there:
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. To decide where the problem lies, unplug the dryer, then:It could be also wired backwardes so make sure to have this checked'

If the circuit breakers or fuses remain on and/or intact when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the dryer. Contact a qualified appliance repair technician. If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box.

No heat coming from dryer


Double check the circuit breaker for the dryer (Electric Neptune). Turn it off, then turn it back on. Its possible that the breaker may have tripped for some reason, but wasn't able to trip all the way.

Does the interior of the dryer get warm at all? You could have a 1 of multiple heating elements that has shorted. If no heat at all, the likely a heating element has opened up. Unplug dryer from wall (turn off circuit breaker first!). Use a ohm meter to measure and check continuity of the heating elements.

There may also be a sail switch in the air path of the dryer. The purpose of the sail switch is to keep the elements turned off until there is enough air blowing through the dryer. This helps prevent fires, as well as shrunken denim.

LD 8410 MAYTAG DRYER .... DRUM TURNS .... NO HEAT......HOW DO I TAKE OFF THE BACK


  • before taking it apart, if it is an electric dryer, then check the circuit breaker in the house. sometimes only one side of the dual breaker will trip leaving you with a running dryer with no heat.

  • maytag dryers are accessed from the front. look for 2 screws on the front panel near or at the bottom. these hold the front panel on.

  • let me know if you need more help

Check your fuses or breaker...If you have fuses, replace both 30 amp fuses. If you have breakers, flip breaker to OFF then back to ON, then try your dryer to see if it heats.
