Hi,
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.

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.)
Thank you!

I gotta assume you're joking since it looks like you're asking why the dryer isn't working when you've turned all the power off in your house.

If this is the case then the only way your dryer is going to function is if you bought it with the optional Maytag Cold Fusion power supply. Or you could turn the power back on...

Check the door switch. It might be a small button under the edge of the door. It's possible it is stuck.

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...

Model PYE2300 AYW the dryer turns on and provides heat but the drum does not spin


your belt has come off the drum or has broken. Take the model and serial number to parts house for replacement. The belt should be accessed through the back of the dryer. Good Luck on your repair. Make sure to disconnect electricty before removal of back.

You have a thermal overload switch that may be bad. It is located under the top of the dryer. Check first the breakers. Turn them off and then back on, then check the wiring in the back of the dryer and then the element itself. It may take 30 minutes to do all of this, but it will save you a lot in the long run.

Maytag dryer MDE6000 is only blowing cold air.


Electric dryers run on 220 volt, it is usually a double breaker at your main panel, however, depending on the electrician and how old the wiring is you might have two breakers, so start there first. If not, there are several parts to this dryer. It could be an element, a thermal fuse, high limit thermostat, or as simple as a burnt wire. Most important please turn off power before working on this.

The other thing that most people forget to check is the outlet pipe or vent pipe. If they get blocked, when the heat turns on, and it is blocked, the dryer will detect it and immediately turn off the heat but the drum will still turn. Bed Bath and Beyond has a dryer vent clean out kit that hooks to a shop vac.
