    I have an Amana Dryer ALE866SAW model. I took out the heating coil to test it. That was ok but the Thermal Fuse was bad. Every thing was unhooked for 4 days befor I could get a new part and put it in. I put it all back together and pluged it in. The motor now sounds like it is working harder and after about 15min the dryer shuts down. I think that I have one or more wires that are in the wrong spot. Can you help me with this? I need a good pitcher so that I can see where the wires go.

    Need to know what wires and where the wires go on the heater box. It has two connections for the heating element, two for the thermal fuse and three for what I think is the Thermostat cycling. Can you help me? I have an Amana Electric Dryer Model number is ALE866SAW.

There should be a tech sheet / wiring diagram inside the upper console. However, The is a manual that you can refer to is here:

http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/docs/16026315.pdf

It is one of the worst service manuals ever published. It even states to check the unit Tech sheet in the console for wiring diagrams.

Heating elements either have 2 or 3 wires on them. Single one piece elements only have 2 wires. It does not matter which terminal you connect them to unless the terminals are different sizes so that you can not hook it up incorrectly. The 3 wire elements have one wire that goes to the lower temp cycle thermostat and operate a smaller / shorter element of the double element type heaters. Single element heater wires will have 220V - 230V across them with the motor running.

Diagnosis Electric Hot Water Tank Problems and Repair It


I understand that you electric hot water tank is not producing hot water. To diagnosis the problem we will need a few tools. Here is a list of the tools you will need.

Multi-meter
Screw driver (Flat and Philips)
¼ inch nut driver or ratchet and socket
5/16 inch nut driver or ratchet and socket

Diagnosis Electric Hot water tank problems:


1. First you will need to remove the service panels on the side of the hot water tank to expose the thermostat and heating elements. Careful as power is still on to the unit. Now that you have removed the service panels we need to proceed to the next step.

2. On the thermostat there are two wires coming into the top two screws these are line one and line two they are the main power feed. Take your probes from the multi-meter and touch to each screw and you should receive a reading of 220 volts. If you receive this reading then move to the next step. If you do not get a 220 reading then your breaker is tripped or bad.

3. Got the proper power then you will want to check the thermostat reset button. In the middle of the thermostat is a red button press it in and see if it clicks. If the button clicks it means that the thermostat has tripped do to over heating. Wait an hour and see how your hot water is doing. If still the same replace the thermostat.

4. Use your multi meter to check for power to the heating elements. The heating elements have two screws with wires on them. You will want to take one probe to each screw and see what the VAC reading is (if power is present you should receive 220 volts) if you do not get the correct reading then the thermostat needs replaced. You will need to do the same thing to the lower element.

5. To check the heating elements turn off the power to the unit at the breaker. Check to make sure the power is off by using your meter at the thermostat. Remove the wires off of the element and check it for continuity if not continuity then the element is bad and needs replaced.


Replacing the Thermostat

1. Turn off the power.
2. Label and remove all wires from the thermostat
3. Pull clips forward on sides and pull thermostat upward to remove
4. Install new thermostat in reverse

Replacing the Element(s)

1. Turn off power to the unit
2. Turn off water to hot water tank and drain
3. Remove element from tank
4. Slide new element in tank
5. Turn water supply on and check for leaks
6. Reconnect wires
7. Turn on hot water faucet some where in the house to allow air to escape from tank.
8. Turn power on once hot water tank is full.

My Frigidaire model FDB1050 will not heat the water. The heating element checked out at bout 14 ohms but the approximately 8" wire from the heating element to what I think is a thermostat is slightl


Hello preslncon - The black button that you are referring to is more than likely the Hi-Limit Thermostat. The Hi-Limit Thermostat will open and stop power from reaching the heating element. The Hi-Limit is not resettable, and if it is open, it would need replacing. As far as the burnt wire on the Thermostat, more than likely a loose connection to the Thermostat could have possibly caused the wire to overheat. This is not a typical do it yourself job. Personally, I would recommend reaching out to a qualified appliance repair person to proceed further. I hope this information helps to some degree.

Does not heat up


what type of dryer rate these

Open The Cabinet
  • Unplug the dryer's power cord from the electrical outlet. Remove the toe panel by inserting a putty knife between the toe panel and the front panel. There are retaining clips 4 in. from each corner. Slide the putty knife blade over each retaining clip and pull the toe panel away from the dryer.
Test the Heating Element
  • If you own an electric Whirlpool dryer, locate the heating element. The heating element is the workhorse of the heating operation. The heating element is most often inside a can. The thermostat mounts to the side of the heating element can in most Whirlpool dryers. The thermostat looks like a small oval part with two wires connecting to each side.
    Pull the two wires that connect to the heating element terminals. Set a volt-ohm meter to the RX1 scale to check the continuity of the heating element. Clip each probe from the volt-ohm to each of the heating element terminals. A good element will give you a reading between 8 ohms and 12 ohms. If you get no ohm reading, the heating element is faulty and you will need to replace this part.

After clening the kettle it blows breakers


You got the Heat element and or thermostat wet. Open the kettle to expose the electronics and let it dry for days. try again it might dry out.

Or you will need to replace the heat element, thermostat, and probably the wires. if it hasn't dried out by now.

Maytag Dryer MDE3706AYW has a burnt black wire, did the wire just have a bad day or do I need to replace the heating element and the wire?


All should be good. I think the element had run on due to a bad hi-limit thermostat that you said you replaced.

Good luck
