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

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.

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...

Maytag dryer is less than 3 years old. Blew thermal fuse. Cleaned all of the venting inside and out. dryer still overheating and blowing the thermal fuse. Replaced the thermal fuse and the high temp sensor...


Have you tried replacing the operating thermastat it's what shuts it off at the right temp and would cause the thermal fuse to go if it is not shuting.off at the right temp. It happens.
Hope this helps.

Is there a reset button?


No reset button.
Probably a bad thermal fuse located on the blower housing.

Maytag Dryer Model #LDE 4916 ACE. Dryer won't start


Sorry, no reset button. If it ran a bit without the belt, it may have overheated and blown one of the thermal fuses. You can find schematics and diagrams at

Good luck.

Electric Maytag Neptune Dryer not heating up.


If the dryer won't heat up, the problem is typically either a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is located just inside the back of the dryer on or near the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. The thermal fuse and heating element can be tested using an ohm meter or multimeter. These components should have continuity. If either does not, that component is faulty. There is no telling if the moving around of the machine caused the problem or if the timing of the problem was coincidental. Sure hope this helps ya and best wishes.

Maytag Performa Pye2000ayw won't turn on-tried taping wires


If your dyrer has a thermal fuse, it will be on the blower housing (front), not on the heat element. It will be either white plastic os a button about half the size of other thermos. The fuse on the heat element will shut down the haet only. Hope this helps!
