My Maytag Performa won't run at all

I looked up your model. The blower wheel on these 31001317
causes the dryer to over heat. The fuse kit LA-1053 mounts here:e930c75.jpg

Model #pdet910ayw just quit the other day. will

You probably have blown your thermal fuse located on the blower housing. If you have a restriction in your airflow it will cause long dry times and also cause the dryer to overheat (which blows the thermal fuse at approx 197 deg). You could removed the front panel and the fuse is located on the top of the blower housing. It will be white and teardrop shaped. It can be tested for continuity. If the fuse is bad be sure to clear venting before running the dryer or the fuse will blow again. part number is probably 3390719.
