Maytag dryer ... where is the thermal reset button???

Unfortunaltly we have had this happen before. Last time we paid$$$ to have someone "fix" the dryer. He said that the reset button was tripped... costly but easy fix. Now 6 months later same thing ... but I can't sem to find this reset button. Where would this be?

Thermal cutouts, thermal fuses, thermal resets, are not resettable, they are a one shot, last ditch, protective device.
fail once - wear,
fail twice - you must clean the lint out of the fan, and exhaust duct before the house burns down.
the thermal reset is a device like this maytag dryer ... where is the thermal reset button - 2ce0a6a.jpg, or this61220a5.jpg fitted on the fan housing.
conduct good,
open circuit fail and replace.
the local parts guy has them, there are only a few that fit multiple models it does not matter what brand imaytag dryer ... where is the thermal reset button - 4a10230.jpgcket

dirty

Maytag dryer temperature fluctuates. replaced the thermal fuse 2 weeks ago. this fixed the problem but the dryer now gets a lot hotter and cooler than before. all the clothing is coming out wrinkled.


change the cycling thermostat and when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer and vent line?if it's gas it should be done at least once a year electric every 16 to 20 months because you don't have an open flame in there like a gas dryer but you either have bad air movement or the cycling t-stat is bad and if you had to change out the thermal fuse is a definite sign of this,if your clothes have been taking longer to dry you have a block somewhere,you can try removing the vent line from the back of dryer and run it to see if it helps and check the duct that the lint filter slides down into for lint buildup,all a dryer does is spin,heat and move air if it's blocked it will pop the thermal fuse.

Tripped my circuit and wont reset or start HELP!!!


Your circuit braker tripped because of a current problem that in your case caused a defective part. Since your machine is still under warranty, best way will be to contact to the appropriate factory service center for repair the problem. Good luck!

Kenmore Series 80 Dryer won't start after Circuit breaker was tripped


A breaker thrown that many times indicates a serious electrical problem. You need to have the problem taken care of by an electrician. You should be worried about the safety of yourself and your family.
That being said, I would guess that breaker has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

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)
$10.70

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.

When you push the button to start the dryer, all it does is buzz and nothing happens


next time send the model number and brand name,all dryers are not the same!it sounds like a bad motor.open the door,push the door switch in with one hand and with the other spin the drum,while you're spinning the drum have someone push the start button,if the motor starts you'll know the motor is bad but it might run for a while before it does this again or it will do it every time but either way the motor should be changed,also on some dryers if the belt broke it will buzz like when the dryer is down but if yours is more like a humming sound like power is going to the motor but it won't run then it's the motor.

Dryer stopped in the middle of a cycle. Time kept going, drum and motor stopped. Unplugged dryer, check lint and exhaust hose for build up. Plugged dryer back in, when I select time and hit start, dryer...


The motor tripped..The wiring diagram for the dryer is inside the back cover tie-wrapped to the frame as it sounds like the motor has a trip on it:
To reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click) Do not push the right button as that is what got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim

I have had my whirlpool dryer about 4yrs + (geq9800pw2) has always worked fine. Last week it started tripping ckt breaker toward the end of drying cycle. As of this morning, it blows ckt breaker...


leave off the oven and a/c breakers and plug dryer and reset the breaker. if not tripping occurs then one at a time trip back the oven first. if no trip then trip off again and trip the a/c. if no trip then trip the oven back. if trip you may have a wire problem. if dryer trip any way then possibly you have a short in dryer. check the heating element wires,power cord at the dryer side(terminal block).

Hi,
When the dryer wont heat it is the thermal fuse that is bad, you can test it with a voltmeter before replacing. This fuse is located inside the rear panel and it cannot be reset.

Hope this will help...
