Question about Maytag Dryers
You have one of two issues, the most likely will be first.
- The heat element is shorted. If the element breaks and touches the metal shroud it can be activated and on all the time. You would need to replace the element. This can be seen by physically looking at the element or making a continuity test from the element terminal to ground
- The centrifugal switch internal to the motor is stuck in the closed position this can only be tested with an ohmmeter and if bad the motor needs replaced
