Magic Chef YE228LV Dryer schematic

I am trying to find a schematic or repair manual for a Magic Chef YE228LV electric dryer. I'm trying to find how many heating coils it has. My Mother's dryer doesn't dry very well and I think one of the coils may be bad.

Thank You,
Ed Morel

Dryers only have 1 heating coil and it is located on the back inside panel of the dryer. Before you go taking you dryer's heating coil out please check the temp relay. now some dryers have 2 of thoses they will be on the heating coil case and look like silver button and usually have 1 or 2 wires on it. If the dryer will not dry as well as it use to than what may be happening is that the relay my not be working properly and telling the heating coil to only come on for a short time and than shut off again. now the relay's are the cheapest thing to fix. i would start with thoses. if that does not work or ou need more help please contact me again and i will assist you with disasembling you dryer to get to the heating coil.....

Magic Chef Laundry Parts Model CYE3005AYW

This link has a better schematic. Note the thermal fuse. Check it first.
If it is open you need to determine why it opened. Is the exhaust pipe clogged or does it have to many elbows or is it too long.
4 elbows is about equal to a clogged pipe.
Is there something wrong with the thermostat that caused it to overheat?

My magic chef dryer heats but will not blow air


A dryer fan is usually directly connected to the motor. If you hear the motor running, maybe the fan broke off, or the duct is really clogged.

Dryer problem


I could be wrong, but I don't know of a dryer that DOESN'T use a belt to turn the drum. If the motor is turning on, and the drum is not spinning, more than likely your suspicions are correct and the belt is broken. You can find a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the model number you have provided and look under the "Tumbler" heading for item number 5 (part #341241). The website also offers some helpful exploded view illustrations to assist in part location and installation.

Repairclinic.com carries the part at a cheaper price (item number 529597). Use the part number provided by the Sears website for your search criteria. Repairclinic also offers dryer belt installation diagrams. Just click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page and look under the "Special Features" section on the following page for "Dryer Belt Diagrams". Magic Chef uses diagram F. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.
