Question about Maytag MDE9700AYW Neptune 174 Electric Dryer
Can anyone please tell me where the thermal fuse is located for a Maytag Neptune MDE9700AYW?
Yes, I just changed thermal fuse on the same model . . . take off the front door, the front panel and there it is; attached to the vent tube with a flimsy bracket

It is located on the heating element airflow tube.
Remove two large bolts located on the lid on the back.
Now the top can slide back and off when you slide it back.
The plastic control panel needs to come off now.
Remove the 4 philips head screws on the top of the plastic panel.
Rotate the top of the sloped panel so it is up and down being careful not to break it.
This will disconnect the bottom of the panel which is latched at the bottom.
Once the panel is loose lay it out of the way on top at the length of the cable.
Remove the two screens on the door hinge.
Remove the lower two screws at the bottom of the dryer opening.
Remove the 4 screws at the top of the front panel.
Lift the front panel, it latches at the bottom to the frame.
On the lower right side is a tube where air is sucked in, heated and pulled into the dryer drum.
Slide the three spade connector pairs that are toward the middle of the dryer from the tstat, themal fuse and heating element. Take note of where they come from.
Remove the one philips screw at the bottom heating tube.
The tube will now slide toward the front of the dryer and come out.
The two devices will measure a minor resistance if they are good.
The heating coil will measure a small resistance.
The thermal fuse looks like a little metal can.
