    thanks - the link at the bottom of the page gives me a blow out of the "whole" unit
    which diagram corresponds
    also what does the part looks like - i've been in a couple of places and they don't show it
    i live in israel and if i could get the specs perhaps i could find something similar locally without having to jump thru the begging and cajoling to have one of these parts stores ship to tel aviv,

    your first advice was dead on -
    dryer wasn't venting properly (or at all - am not sure )
    the hose was apparently crushed closed for some reason and there was no venting
    as soon as we relaxed the hose the dryer came back to life - tested 3 times just for the huge smile and sigh of relief -
    thanks guys until next time - pleasure talking - will save the info for future - unfortunately as these things age there will always be nasty surprises now and then

    helpful, hmmmmmmm yup yup yup
    i would say more like dead on
    i say yay for Fixya

  • nayadn Oct 04, 2010

    the part still don't show - just the background
    1) as soon as they see an american appliance they dream of me as a cash cow
    2) I wouldn't trust any of them near my appliances they are total MORONS, they all call themselves techs at best they are a better grade of amateurs who know nothing of GOOD STUFF
    no way, uh uh, no sireee bob, no way jose, no no no no -
    in 12 years of here i've only met 3 techs i would respect the rest i don't trust them as far as i can throw them - i would pay flight and stay for the maytag repairman (poor he passed away) rather than call these bums - thanks for the lead though - appreciated

Go through the following troubleshooting. If the machine is less than two years old, instead of proceeding with the operations that need disassembly, call Maytag to find out about your warranty status. If warranty is still active you can get a technician at home. Maytag number is listed in the use and care manual.

Step 1 reset the machine: Disconnect the power cord or trip the circuit breaker for five minutes to reset the machine. This will drain power completely.

Step2 Check the thermal fuse.
Next step is checking the thermal fuse, which is this: PS2030126.
The part is located in the heating group.
The thermal fuse is removed from the inside of the machine, and tested using and Ohmmeter. If the Ohmmeter reads infinity (open), the fuse must be replaced.

Thermal fuse is an inexpensive part and can be replaced by the user.

If the thermal fuse blew, then there may be a problem with ventilation, a plugged element or a faulty high limit thermostat. Usually the problem is air ventilation, check it out.

3 Check inlet adn drain hose.
Move the machine forward and check inlet and drain hose. Ensure the hoses are not kinked or blocked, since the cycle stops when you start filling, then the inlet is more likely involved.
Check inlet hose.
Ensure that hoses are at the heights specified in the user manual, or you may get syphoning (see manual at start-installation).

If there is nothing at a glance, next step will be testing the inlet valve with a multimeter , checking the pressure switch, then checking the thermostats and other parts.
The thermal fuse testing is already a non-user-level operation. If you have to proceed in testing parts I suggest getting a tech at home.

Try tripping the circuit breaker, checking hoses, and dry water from the inside before restarting. If that does not work, then there is a fault. In that case call service if you have a valid warranty, or give me model number if you need more specific info on repair.

If you think this solution someway helped, please do not forget to accept the solution.

Here all parts and diagrams:

    Hi Nayadn.

    To start I forgot to mention that other part that may be responsible for the problem is the lid catch.
    The lid switch is tested by the technician by running a cycle with switch contacts jumped.

    At user level it is better if you simply ensure that the door latch is snapping and that the door is well closed.

    Regarding the part location, you find it in heater diagram as part nr 6, part is also in motor and dryer diagram, part 30.

    Part is shown here.

    To get parts in Israel see:

    Parts for Appliance Model Number LSE7806GGE

    Please be aware that replacing the fuse may not fix the problem, as explained more faults can result in machine not cycling.

What dryer motor fits to Maytag LSE7806GGE washer/dryer combo, serial no 22061518ET

Go to and enter model number (not serial number). That should at least help you to identify the motor you need but be sure that it is for 230v. As for shipping, you may have to find out whether repair clinic can handle it. Good luck.

We pulled our stacked washer out from the wall to service the cold water hose filter on the back of the unit. when we pushed it back into it's location the washer won't start, won't fill...

I know you don't want to hear this, but either you did something to the hose filter or you didn't get it plugged back in correctly.

If you banged the water inlet valve in moving it back, it might be damaged.

Suggest you unplug everything and start over.

Amana dryer model YNED7200TW will not start. there is power, but start button does nothing. Resetting breaker did not work. Any ideas?

Thermal Fuse

Item #2986 (OEM Part)

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.
