Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Mde3706ayw Dryer will run for about 10 minutes and then turn off. I have to wait about 30 minutes. I have tested or replaced the thermal fuses. The dryer will run continuously when set on no heat so I don’t think it’s the motor. Could it be a problem with the timer switch? Thanks, Clinton

DRYER NOT HEATING. Heat Element test good. No visible breaks. Tested the Thermal fuse it was bad so we replaced it. The dryer worked about 5 minutes. So we tested everything again and the Thermal Fuse and...

Somehow you are not getting enough air through the dryer to maintain a temperature below the thermal high temp cutout temp. or there is a control problem for the heating element so it may stay on the 5 minutes but like an oven the thermostat turns the element on and off. I hope you understand. There may be a relay that turns the element on and off, but the contacts have "frozen" or welded themselves together. If so that's your problem. Or there is another device with a similar problem. Unplug, trace the 220vac wires to controls and the heating element. Double check wiring. the Safety devices may be 110vac rated and 220vac is going through so won't hold the power flow. Hope this helps.

Your Thermal Fuse probably blew, get a Digital Volt Meter from Harbor Freight $5.00, locate the Thermal Fuse and check the OHM's to verify it s the fuse, replace it needed.

Frigidaire Affinity AEQ6700FSO electric dryer does not heat, then shuts off within 10 minutes.

Hello Scott Joseph Brandt - Since you have already replaced the thermal limiter check your breaker or fuses. Some dryers are run by two separate fuses, one for power and one for heat-ours is. If it is not the power source more than likely the issue lies with your heating coil.

Dryer will not start, no power

Do you have power at the electrical plug?? If you have 110 volts then sounds like you have a thermal fuse that is blown. Easy repair that should cost between $10 and $20 and should take about 30-40 minutes. This is the most common reason a dryer won't start if it does have power. Make sure to unplug dryer from wall before working on it.

There is power to the dryer and there is no fuse on the circuit board is there a fuse any were else please help

There is a "white" thermal fuse in your dryer that may be stopping it from running. Unplug the dryer before you make repairs. How to open a dryer cabinet: How to test and replace a thermal fuse: This repair is a very easy fix. Cost is usually between $10 and $20 on the internet for the part. You will need model number to get the part. Usually takes just about 10 - 15 minutes to replace. Takes more time to take dryer apart than it does to remove the one screw and two electrical spade connections. Very easy here!!

Dryer won't stay on.

tc7059d4.jpg9729365.jpg3403fe5.jpgThe wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. A thermal fuse is normally in the circuit to the igniter on many gas dryers. I recommend checking this fuse. On dryer model 11073032102, you can access this fuse by _unplugging the dryer, shutting off the gas supply,_ and removing the bottom front service panel as shown in the second image below. On some Kenmore dryers, you have to remove the back panel to access the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing . The third image shows the location and replacement procedure. To test the thermal fuse, remove at least one wire (with the dryer still unplugged) and measure the resistance across the leads of the fuse with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms (continuity). If you measure infinite resistance (open), then the thermal fuse is blown and will need to be replaced.NOTE: If the thermal fuse is blown, check the venting for your dryer. Restricted exhaust venting can cause the thermal fuse to blow.

thank You Huuum

Dryer makes squeaking noise ,then dryer shuts off. mdl.#CYG4000AWW

Hello, sounds like the rear drum rollers are in need of replacement which is causing the motor to get hot and cut out on the thermal cut out. It can be tricky to service if you not handy. Good Luck
