Question about Dryers
My Maytag Performa PYE2000AYW dryer first stopped working, then
Ifoundout the thermofuse was gone. So I replaced the fuse with a
newone, butit only worked for a minute or two before the new fuse
Is it some overheating problem? What could be the potential reasons for the problem? Replace heating element?
Thanks in advance for suggestions!
Probably restricted air flow caused by lint build up. Clean out dryer and all vent pipes, check damper outside and see if it opens. After you clean out everything run dryer on aif fluff/no heat cycle and see if there is good air flow outside. If it is electric it could be that the heating element is burned out and shorting out against the frame. This can cause overheating.
