Question about Maytag HYE3658AY Electric Dryer
Your instinct is right, the thermal fuse where the neutral line for the drum light and motor terminates is blown. It is located on the right hand side of the heater
housing and is mounted on a bracket at the rear top of cabinet. Lift the top panel and there is a 1/4" hex-head screw
that holds both the heating element bracket and the thermal fuse
bracket. Remove the said screw and the thermal fuse bracket can be
lifted off. The top panel can be released from the front panel by inserting a putty knife blade against the locking clips that hold them together.
Figure 1: Removing the brackets screw (thermostat removed).
Figure 2: The screw and the thermal fuse.
Figure 3: The screw removed. The thermal fuse bracket has locating tabs at the bottom and at the middle, lift the bracket to clear the tabs and remove it. Install the new thermal fuse in reverse order.
Test the continuity of the thermal fuse and replace at if no continuity along with the thermostat. You can bypass the thermal fuse for troubleshooting purposes if you don't have a tool for testing continuity. Join the wires together or jump a wire between them then insulate them properly. Plug in and start the dryer, The thermal fuse is indeed blown if the dryer runs.
