Maytag SE1000 Series 07 dryer works but does not heat. Shows 125V coming to each terminal on the element is this correct? Element shows continuity.

    Ok the dryer has 2 connections on the heating element both read 125 voltage when I put the positive on the wire and negative on metal. Reads zero when I put positive to one wire and negative to the other wire. Everything including the element wires and both thermostats show continuity. The only part that does not show any continuity is the thermistor. Would this be the problem? I also checked for 220V at the wall and that showed 220V. I paid a guy to look at it and he said it was the control panel. He said the panel showed power in but no power out. But like I said it is getting power to the element. The panel cost $200 and if thats not the problem I can't return it. I hate to spend that kind of money on a 15 year old dryer without a guaranteed fix. If anyone has any other ideas I would be very grateful I have been working on this for almost 2 weeks!!!! Please Help Me

Hi,
You need to have 220-240 or so volta ACROSS the two terminals on the element...the 125 can feed across and can be the same leg on both sides...

    Honestly... before I would spend for a 200 dollar part on a fifteen year old machine I would get a new one...but you do have a problem in that you are not getting 220v to the element...thermistor could be the problem but they are tough to check because the resistance on them is very tricky to check...I would say the guy you had there is probably right,,,

Maytag dryer wont heat


Probably the timer. Remove the quick connect from the timer where the big red wire is that comes off the heating element. Check that leg with the leg next to it. moving the timer knob . You should get a meter reading. If you cannot get a read then that timer is fried inside. I did a video which shows one exactly like yours.

I have a maytag performa dryer wont heat up sometimes


Hello there:
If there is no heat or heat sometimes please try these solutions
Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

No hot air


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Dryer wont heat


First answer is yes; high resistance is good. I am not sure I understand the second question. The reasion one has to isolate the element is to avoid resistance from other parts. This, I believe , is the most likly problem.

Maytag haevy duty stack washer dryer unit model # SE1000 series 06


I hope you got this fixed by now but if not I'll put in my 2 cents.. I assume that your dryer is electric and not gas. Assuming that is true then you probably have an open heater element.. similar to this used in electric stoves... There may also be other components that could have failed and in so doing, disabled power to that element. Could be a contactor or temp switch/thermistor.. Hope this helps and that you've already solved the problem...
